Have you ever wanted to look like a celebrity?
Even vegetables do. You know - the photo of the potato resembling Richard Nixon that makes the front page of the newspaper on really slow news days.
Here's a link to the next best thing.
You don't have to have massive quantities of plastic surgery. You don't need a personal trainer. You, too, can look like a famous person. Uh, no guarantees on which famous people you might dig up.
I presented two pictures. These are the celebrities I resemble, with the percentage noted. Laugh with me.
Click on the really long links if you want the whole visual experience.
Liza Minelli - 68%
Marcia Cross - 67%
Elle Macpherson - 67% (This one resulted in the expulsion of hot coffee, through my nose, onto my keyboard.)
Patrick Swayze - 66% (I'm not sure what to say. Should I be flattered, should he?)
Victoria Principal - 64%
Jamie Lynn Spears - 63% (Maybe that's why people tell me I look young.)
Charlotte Church - 62% (Hey, I have her pipes, too. Ha.)
And a three way tie for 61%, Heike Drechsler, Roseanne Barr and Oprah Winfrey. (Maybe I'm destined to have a talk show - in Germany.)
Jacques Villeneuve - 71% (He's a cute, French, young man. But if you've read my post about my experience with the French language - you know this is not a good fit. If you haven't - here's the link to the story...it's about three paragraphs into the post http://kellyklepfer.blogspot.com/2006_04_20_kellyklepfer_archive.html
I do like to go fast though. Sometimes.)
Jamie Lynn Spears - 63% (again....hmmm...)
Mischa Barton - 62% (there's a theme here. Young. Yay! And this is the more momish of the pictures.)
Helen Clark - 61% (okay - definitely looks momish - I spoke too soon)
Carl Lewis - 59%
Shania Twain and Tom Cruise tie at - 58% (well, I don't take psych meds - so Tom and I have that in common.)
Liza Minelli comes in at 57%
Monica Lewinsky - 54% (What can I possibly say that hasn't already been said?)
Konrad Adenauer - 53% (okay - this is digging pretty deep. The guy was born in the late 1800's.)
So who do you look like?
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
