You gotta be kidding me! (Part One)

My friend Allison posted on Facebook about this website that lets you find a celebrity that most looks like you.

Ooooooh...this was going to be fahhhhhhhhhn!
HAH! Let's see who they think I look like!

I knew someone had told my daughter Joni, one of the Celebrity Lookalike websites had said she looked like Melanie Thornton, the Pussy Cat Doll.


The website I checked said she closest resembled Beyonce (I think it was a high 90% likeness).
Oooh, I bet my daughter would so like that.

(Cos Joni herself is a singer - don't believe me? Her band, Under Headlights, has so far produced two singles, "Jangan Kau Tiada" and "For Sure". You can check out their website. How creative these people are! But then again, I'm her mother and slightly biased :)
... slightly. But oh so proud of 'em.)
So where was I? Oh.

What do you think?

Yes, I was starting to like this website alright...

It also said Joni looked like Hayden Panittiere. Okay, this is getting interesting...

But I always thought Joni looked a lot like Eva Longoria, y'know? So I got Desperate and looked for photos on my own and matched them:

See the pic below....

Doesn't she, doesn't she?

So cute I can't stand it.

(Who do you think Joni resembles the most?)

Ok, so this was getting to be really fun. And mischievous me just had to, right???

So I took the few shots I have of myself (mind you, close up shots are obviously preferred, so that left me with even fewer options)...

and the very FIRST one was this:

and it said I looked like..



I mean-


His eyes are not like mine!
His nose is far off! literally.
His lips are so much thinner!
and.. and..his wrinkles!
And his EYEBROWS!!


NOW WAIT A MINUTE MISTER.....(I mean the website, not the poor man in the picture that I do not know at all, celebrity or not, and don't care to know. And I don't know if he would be more insulted than I was! Maybe I'll find out where he is and post this to him...)

After the initial shock, I knew they must have done that on purpose, just to whet my vain appetite, y'know? hmmph.

Other suggestions got better...

Zoe Tay

Mandy Moore

So, with my interest thoroughly piqued, I looked for other photos I could use.

Shirley MacLaine

You have to google your own celebrity lookalike website cos I had great difficulty downloading these photos from different ones. And then I forgot where I got what from....but for starters you can try

Again, be sure your photo is a large close up, preferably of you alone, not standing with another person. I discovered that the hard way.....

Ozzy Osbourne

They were saying that the kids' hot air balloon craft resembled Ozzy Osbourne! hahahahaha!

How do I know they were not referring to me? Cos they said in this photo, I looked like

...............................................................................................................................Perez Musharraf - 57%

=.= sigh.

Who needs to look like a celebrity anyway?
Aren't we all uniquely beautiful? wink wink.

F1 Drivers' Dilemma

So a group of us was having lunch when the topic was the Formula 1 race about to take place the next day.

the ear-shattering sound the car makes as it rounds a bend...make sure you wear ear plugs....260km per hour...flameproof overalls, boots...stamina, endurance...

It was all blah blah blah to me. The swirling egg in my kong foo chow blowing kisses at me was more interesting....

At first.

Then PaulV was saying:

the drivers wear diapers...

that,of course, made my drooping ears go

b o i nnnngg!

you mean they don't have pee stops? my eyebrows are looking at him now.

how can you have pee stops if you're in the middle of an F1 race?

but it's just a short race what....why do they even need to pee?

it's a short but very STRESSFUL race....sweat...fluids lost...blah blah..

...he lost me at diapers.

ewwww.. just like a man not to be able to hold it all in. On a long drive, I know some men who wriggle and wiggle and squirm (with such sinuous hip and abdominal movements that would put Shakira to shame. yeah, and Hips Don't Lie.) waiting for the next petrol station, rest area, any building that looks like it has a toilet in it....only to stop at the next


To pee.

Then they give you that Tom Hanks face, the one after he. let. it. all. go. in Green Mile.

In this movie however, he had an acute leaking problem and was relieved he could go without pain after such a long time of suffering. You've got to love that face! especially at 0.32...

I'm glad I'm a woman. No woman will stop at no-tree, no-sir, for no-nothin'. uh-huh. Apart from the fact that we are the more environmentally-friendly gender, we'd rather let everything crystallize inside there, than do something so beneath us. hmmph.

* the writer says that she looked up google to find out what exactly an F1 driver does if he needs to take a leak and there were various theories given...pee in their even pooped apparently...wear a gadget that collects the fluid...wear diapers...they don't pee at the question remains in her mind. are there pee stops during pit stops?
