Oh Donna...


Here is a random bit of information: I have started the new semester andI have come across the 8th high school student in 2 years to tell me that I remind them of Donna from That 70's Show. They claim it is my voice, my personality and my manerisms. I don't really see it. I like Donna and I think she is funny/pretty so I will take the compliment, but it has me thinking.

Over the years I have been told at least 20 seperate times that I remind someone of their sister, best friend, cousin, chick they went to school with, boss or aunt. I have also been told I remind them of Jodi Foster, Teri Polo (Meet the Parents) and Gweneth Paltrow- I all of those both ridiculous and extremely flattering.

I wonder, what is it about me that makes so many people think of someone else. Do I have such a universal look and personality that I could be anyone OR do I just make people feel comfortable enough that they feel like they already know me. It is weird and I really wonder if other people get the "do you know who you remind of...." or "do you have a sister named 'so and so' because you look so much alike".

Weird.

I think we all get it now and again...and we all give it!

Think of all the billions of people on this earth...we're bound to resemble someone!

you are probably hot, i guess people, specially guys will trick themselves into thinking that you resemble someone when you really do not. At least thats what I have found myself to do.
