There go my dreams of stardom

So my friend Lori (see her blog at the side), with whom I have remained friends for too many years for us to count honestly (she’s the person I’ve been friends with for the longest in my life, a token of having moved hither and yon in childhood days…so, there, Lor, you get a claim to fame. (as if she needs one. she’s like this total movie star, seriously!)), she had this “celebrity look-a-like” thing linked on her myspace, uh, space. “Celebrity-piece-of-crap” it should be called and I’ll tell you why. I uploaded, like, three dozen photos of me (ok, not that many; i don’t have that many pics of me, as Sharon will tell you) and the majority of them came back with celebrity look-alikes such as, and I quote: Nicolas Cage, Haley Joel Osment (most photos) (whoever the hell he is), Thomas Edison, Prince William (several appearances), Gerard Depardieu (several appearances), Buckminster Fuller, and, my fav, Geronimo. Ok, I did get A FEW females (Mary-Kate Olson (huh?), Daryl Hannah (that’s the only celeb I’ve ever heard I looked like), and Carrie Fisher among them).

And then I ran Troy and my wedding photo and got for me: Chelsea Clinton, Melissa Gilbert and Guiseppe Verdi and for Troy:  Topher Grace, Holly Hunter and Ray Romano. Huh.

It was quite depressing until I realized that it was actually fun to see how many different men I could actually look like.  That’s no woman, baby…maybe i have gender issues that i never knew about.  At the very least, my wretched and irregular physiognomy (yes, I had to look the spelling up and no, I didn’t have it right. i was off by one vowel) will never grace the realms of the silver screen, alas, alack, and lack-a-day. (It’s my schnoz, i just know it. no self-respecting feminine female has a beak as big as i do). You can see some other ‘celebs’ here.

and that’s about it, kids.  if you do the look-alike thing, you are absolutely required to tell me a few of them, unless they’re all like 100% match for Nicole Kidman, Audrey Hepburn, and Kate Winslet (unless you’re a guy, ’cause then it will be funny. no wait, it won’t either because that will mean a GUY is more beautiful than i can be!!).

    Haley Joel Osment was the kid in “the sixth sense”. He’s older now though..probably about 17 or so…
