If you read my blog yesterday you know that I am on a mission to complete some of the things on my "bucket list". I have given myself 2 1/2 years to accomplish 101 goals. If you haven't already read yesterday's post, check it out here.
In less than 24 hours I have already completed (1) of my goals, #51, be an inspiration to someone. Thanks to MrsJenB and Chele both of whom emailed me yesterday to let me know that I have inspired them to start their own lists. Yeah MrsJenB and Chele, and yeah for my first $10 deposit into the "bucket jar" (damn, now what will I do for allowance for Hamilton and Gibson this week?).
The two goals on my list that worry me the most are: #22, fall in love and #52, get married barefoot. If you have been any kind of follwoer on my blog, you know that I struggle daily to find Mr. Right. From the first date fiascos to the long term relationships, my path to finding "the one" has been long and hard, and unfortunately, it doesn't look like there is an end in sight.
So it got me thinking about the saying, "if you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got." I don't know who said that, but it has always been a mantra for me when I'm giving advice to others. I, however, have never actually thought about it as it relates to me. But today, it finally hit home. I need to make some changes...physically, mentally and emotionally. I like to start with the easy changes so as not to get discouraged, so I decided to start with the physical changes.
Like any independent woman of the 21st Century, I immediately get online to figure out a strategy. And it hits me...what if I can figure out which celebrity I resemble the most and use that celebrities "style" persay, to jumpstart a "new look" for myself. I know its a warped way to think, but desperate times call for desperate measures. After all, I only have 2 1/2 years!
Through my research I was lucky enough to find the celebrity I most resembled, and boy was I shocked! I couldn't believe the computer generated program would match me with such a stellar person. I know you are all dyiing to know who I was matched with...
Drum roll please.......
Yep, apparently I resemble Jack Black with an 85% accuracy. If this doesn't hurt a chicks self esteem, I don't know what would. The second celebrity in line to match me is Alicia Silverstone, but only with a 45% accuracy.
Seriously? This program thinks I looke more like Jack Black than Alicia Silverstone? I might just have to end my life here...Quite frankly, I don't think I resemble either, but I will say when my hair was long I did have a couple of people (ok, drunk guys at a bar) tell me that I look like Alicia Silverstone.
So here is how I see the math on this particular connection...
MINUS the big belly
MINUS the goofy look
MINUS the musical talent
MINUS the energy
MINUS the facial hair
Divide him in half... (he is a very large little guy)
...and you may have something that resembles a very distant relative of mine.
Quite frankly, the only thing I see of resemblance between the two of us is that we both need an upper lip wax!
