This morning Jennifer Grey got on my bus. Of course, it wasn’t actually Jennifer Grey, because I’m guessing that the real Jennifer Grey a) didn’t get her old nose back; b) wouldn’t be on a bus in Portland at 7:30 AM; c) got rid of that perm 20 years ago; and d) wouldn’t be caught dead in her Dirty Dancing costume.
It was funny – kinda like this girl had woken up one day & said “I want to look like an iconic movie role from the 80s but I have a largish nose.” And then it hit her – Baby!
This girl had that hair, the nose, enough facial features that I actually looked twice, and was wearing a sedate little skirt, white blouse & a pink cardigan. With tango shoes. She was ready. Her cell rang, and I was really disappointed that it wasn’t “She’s Like the Wind.”
That would be a kinda fun game – see how many people you could get to say, “has anyone ever told you that you looked like….”
(aside, once, as a tween, I sent my photo into a Tiger Beat celebrity look-a-like contest, and came in 2nd! I got an autographed photo of the celebrity I looked like: it was….ummmm….some chick from Dallas, I think.)
What celebrity would you try to look like? Whenever I’ve taken those “which celeb do you resemble” tests, they always say it’s a tie between Sarah Michelle Geller & some random, average looking man. I have a friend who insists I look like Christina Ricci – back when she was still eating food.
I’m not so sure.
T-4 hours to martini time.
