But when I do –– oh heckydoodle, who am I trying to fool? Whole chunks of time are left bleeding and helpless in my wake.
I'd like to be bigger and better than this, but I just kept hoping to find a more flattering match for my own face.
Time, I will not pretend, was laid waste in the mostly fruitless effort.
Portrait of a Man Dressed as a Shepard, Sigh. Portrait of the Danish King Christian. Heavy sigh.
Fine fine fine. I didn't go so far as to put on make-up, which I hope explains why me and King Christian both look a little, um, fatigued.
Still, even when I went way, way, way back, to the passport photos that didn't turn into my first passport –– kind of a funny story. I was pretty sure I had been adopted after the passport office rejected my application MORE THAN ONCE –– guess who Google says I look like?

Seriously, if you were going to be any of the First Ladies of the mid=20th Century, better Eleanor than Nancy. Or Maimie. Or Bess.

You shoulda done your aunts and your mom.

In truth, I did, but the matches were not very entertaining. Or flattering. I only really feel comfortable making fun of my own looks.
Lordy, that's just a whole nuther level of goofing!

Gal hit bottom hard with her public comments in 03 and 05. Still, her picture's on all the dollars and quarters in my pocket !

You, my beautiful friend, do not resemble Eleanor in any fashion. I do recognize a bit of shepherd head, to tho. Jeff, on the other hand, is a more fetching version of Sir Stevenson.

Awww, thanks Lisa!

So you and Jeff get Eleanor Roosevelt and RLS?

Oh, Lo, you need to waste a LOT more time on this one! You WILL find something more apropos or at least a lot more funny if you continue to look...
