Eerily Similar

There are some people that look just eerily alike . . . 

Such as, can you always tell the difference between Clark Gable and George Clooney?

Or what about Amy Adams and Catherine Deneuve?

Who is whose doppelgänger?

Do you have a lookalike? I once had a roommate that looked remarkably like Regina Spector.

I wish I knew

who my double might be. . .

Someone once said that I looked like Ingrid Michaelson. Ingrid & I?

I think its just the glasses/long hair/likes to sing combo.

Somebody else once told me that I look like Norma Shearer, a movie star from the 20s and 30s.

blue steel

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
