    NEW YORK CITY – "TODAY SHOW," I was in New York City to film: w a i t i n g.

    I spent the early morning hours standing outside the TODAY show watching Natalie Morales Ann Curry, Al Roker. I watched a few segments with Matt Lauer. — Standing outside along with Chuck Cavalli and his finace. I happen to meet Ann Curry standing outside, in the July hot heat, the weather was very mild. She had some very kind words. Thank you. Ann Curry is so much more beautiful in person, not that she is not beautiful on TV she is. She had on this Red summer dress, and she looked so beautiful in it.

    Standing outside a few feet away from the railings. Ann Curry was walking around and greeting people and saying hello to them. I could hear her words but I was too far away from her that she couldn't hear me, but she noticed me. Well, I was too far away from her to shake her hand. I was a feet back from them. She could see me and I smiled back at her. Ann Curry Today NBC  New York Ann Curry she had this big smile on her face and she looked at me and said very loud so I could hear her. ANN CURRY Ann Curry said," Wow! What a nice head of hair! People would die for a head of hair like that., I could not have felt happier to hear those words, spoken from Ann Curry. I sort of felt special for a moment.

    "I happen to love the idea or love to wear or showcase," Long hair. In the winter time it makes me feel not so cold.

    And in the summer time it sometimes is hard to deal with, but there is always a nice pool or water to go swimming in so having long hair feels good anytime.

    I often watch NBC news in the morning.

    I guess I am a big fan of stuff that is filmed live.

    At the same time, people mostly watch stuff that is taped or filmed over a two year period or longer. I really enjoy my first visit to watch the TODAY show outside.

    Watching the Today show outside was my most memorable time spent in the City, hearing the exhilarating voice of Ann Curry in person.

    "Ann Curry" then was wearing a Red Summer dress.

    She looked so beautiful and watching a few segments about car maintenance...
