Remember a few weeks ago this meme went around Facebook about how you were supposed to post a picture of the celebrity you look most like? Well, you probably can't remember, because you have better things to do, but I don't, and was really amazed at how many of my friends bear a shocking resemblance to people I haven't heard of (but are famous, and attractive [natch, because I have attractive friends]).

Anyway, I wanted to play, too, but couldn't, because I don't look like anybody. Well, I look like my mother, who is a delightful person to look like (it makes me very happy when I introduce her as my mom and people say, "Well, obviously!") but she is sadly not (yet) famous for anything. So I didn't to do the meme.

Then, this afternoon, I was at the gym in my ponytail and sweaty t-shirt, trying really hard to do a good clean and jerk (I can do it, too, but I just can't admit what's on the barbell) and it came to me! It's not the comparison I've always dreamed of (which is: perhaps someday someone will tell me I look like Winona Ryder in *Heathers*, pretty much my standard of female beauty).

I had to take this picture myself, so I'm not sure it really captures the striking similarities, but I still find it spooky:

Do you see it? Not, like, twins, but some definite correspondences!

Ha! If it makes you feel better, I'd definitely say you are way more Winona than Oscar!

Thanks for the chuckle...
