Diana Ross

Although the countdown widget on the right says otherwise, I did the Big Chop (BC) about six weeks ago. My natural hair journey is well underway! Wooo-Hooo!!

Unlike my first foray into the “Naturalista” world, I am committed to the process this time. I am no longer unnerved by my mother’s reflection staring back at me in the mirror. When I look in the mirror and see more of her than me, I just laugh it off and think ‘my mother is one cute, fly chick’.

In the six short weeks since my BC I have made a few observations.

TWA – OMFG!

Quicker than I thought, the TWA (teenie weenie afro) stage is staring me in the face! Goodness!! What eyes gone do with this hair now?!! An inch and a half of tightly coiled curls sits atop my head and I have a long way to go before I can rock an afro puff or big Diana Ross hair!

After 2 days, 1 AT&T DSL network outage, 2 RamalamaDingDongs in Bangladesh, 1 Geechie in South Carolina, 1 manager named Brian, and 2 hours troubleshooting a problem that should have taken only 15 minutes, I finally have my Internet connection again. This incident brought to my attention just how addicted I am to being able to surf the net. Without it, I was pacing the hall like a $5 crack whore jones’in for my next fix. It wasn’t pretty. 🙂

I’m a little late with my OSF post but better late than never, right? This week’s theme was to pick a vocalist you wanted to be like and state the reason. My pick was pretty easy. This lady is known as a Diva and an international superstar. She has a decent voice and has been in the entertainment industry for 40+ years. However, this isn’t why I admire her. When I saw the following interview my level of respect for her jumped tenfold.

Diana “The Boss” Ross has a reputation of being tempermental and demanding but the interview shows her close loving relationship with her five children. Unlike many celebrities today, Ms. Ross didn’t allow a nanny to raise her children. With the help of her mom Ms. Ross remained a “hands on” mother. Somehow she managed her career without sacrificing her relationship with her children. For that I say, “KUDOS“!!

Another part of the interview. WARNING: the quality is not good.
