This section is here so you can see I don’t drool, or lock-up and fallout during interviews or public speaking. Although I reserve the right to say, “Every day is a new day.”
I will say that for the TWU Commencement Address to 3000 people, I wore the most toxic industrial anti-perspirant I could find, and flat shoes so I had a good grip on the floor.
A Few Videos
When I look at this segment, I laugh. The show started at 8am. I always arrived early to set up my displays. I kept my hair pulled back in a big roller, so at show time, it would be long and have a soft curl. I also had taller shoes that lived under the table, so I was at a specific height at the table. On this particular morning, I was to be live at 8:20. Plenty of time, right?!? At the moment the show started and the host was reading the intro, the producer stepped over and whispered in my ear, “You’re up first. You’re the only one set up.” She immediately moves out of frame, and the guy host shown here, is talking and walking toward me. I did not have time to tuck in my shirt, take my hair down, or put on my shoes. I’m so over trying to always be perfect!
A Few Interviews
Press from the Past
This was a story originally in the Dallas News. It got picked up nationally, and printed in Woman’s World Magazine.
This has got to be the worst photo ever taken of me! It was so disappointing. I had approved, circled with a red wax pen a different photo. It was one with the bunny in front of me, and I’m tilting my head, my hair is free flowing and I’m in motion with the rabbit. Even the writer phoned on the following Monday to ask what happened. He said it looked nothing like the girl he had spent so much time (9 hours) interviewing. Yes, I had a few pounds, but there’s something about it that is uniquely awful. Mac said when he originally went into Tom Thumb to pick up the first issue, it was a slow walk back to the car. I was having a party in a few hours to celebrate this article. If it wasn’t so close to party time, I would have cancelled the event and hid under the bed. I got a glass of wine in Mac, and he admitted, I looked like I was waiting for a kidney. Then he asked, “Did you make the photographer mad?” A few days after this photo was taken, we were on a trip with another couple, and my friend snapped the cutest photo.
