Although I’m kind of obligated to spend some time with my husband due to his 40th birthday, I managed to squeeze in some time to pull off a post for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. The fifth prompt just spoke to me … and I knew I had to do it.
5.) What happened in the last year? Write about something you can do now that you couldn’t do a year ago.
Well, a year ago I didn’t have a blog so I could not regularly humiliate myself like I can now that I have both a willing audience and the tools. I’ve showed you my evolution in to a nerd. I’ve confessed that I’ve pooped my pants, I’ve told how I was mistaken for a 35-year-old woman’s mother, so now why not show you the celebrities I resemble and allow you to watch me morph into an old man who I believe looks nothing like me but — according to the My Heritage site where I found this fun little doo-hicky — I look 73% like Vytautus Landsbergis. (I guess My Heritage’s definition of celebrity is even looser than that used by Dancing With the Stars as I had no idea who my doppelganger was. Upon Googling him, I found out at Wikipedia that Mr. Landsbergis “is a Lithuanian conservative politician and Member of the European Parliament. He was the first head of state of Lithuania after its independence declaration from the Soviet Union, and served as the Head of the Lithuanian Parliament.”)
However, I will accept Janeane Garafolo as my closest celebrity match as I think she is fantastic, albeit a bit more attractive than me. It was the glasses, methinks. (And can you believe she is only 1% more like me than Mr. Landsbergis?)
And how much do you think Madonna is peeing her pants to see that she is a 66% match with little ole me! Plastic surgery, here we come! (For Madonna, I mean. Not me.)
And Sophia Loren — don’t even get this one at all.
And although I wrote a virtual love letter to my husband on Tuesday in honor of his birthday, I’m taking it all back because he saw the collage below and said “I think you really look like Jack Osbourne the most. You look almost exactly like him.” Thanks, dear. You know, I just checked and Match.com has a return policy, you know!
