Shannon & Luke

Who is your celebrity look-alike? Mine is David Sedaris.

When I was in high school, my friends flattered me into thinking that I sort of looked like Shannon Dougherty. Shannon who? Yes, yes, there was a popular TV show back when people still watched TV and when dinosaurs roamed the earth called 90210. Still never heard of her? I think maybe she was a one hit wonder. Anyway, here is a photo of her snuggled up with Luke Perry.

I did kind of look like her when I smiled, but in this picture, my brother and I look less like Shannon and Luke and more like a couple of grumpy Chinese skiers posing for “American Gothic”. My sweet brother and Luke Perry both died way too young, so I don’t really like this comparison anyway.

Later, I was compared to Elaine from Seinfeld (by my brother, mainly because he said I danced like Elaine). So true! I can really boogie when I want to. The dancing episode (Little Kicks) is hilarious and if you haven’t seen it recently, it is worth a re-watch.

Now, I like to think that David Sedaris is my long lost twin. We have so much in common. He is very short and so am I. We both love weird, impractical fashion. We both are obsessed with small animals. We both adore our families. And, we both love to clean. Hmmm. A short person who wears funny clothes, loves animals and family, and loves to clean. Now that I think about it I sound more like a tidy toddler than David Sedaris. I’m in England now, and I know he lives here, so I’m dreaming that I’ll bump into him. Just to say hi! And so I can tell him how much I admire his work. Several years ago, I ran into George R.R. Martin (author of Game of Thrones) in the parking lot of our local pizza parlor and I chatted with him for a minute, so I think it’s possible that I might really see Davis Sedaris. If you haven’t read David Sedaris’s stuff, you definitely should. He will crack you up. He is the master of being really funny without ever being mean.

Do you have a celebrity look-alike? Or perhaps a celebrity soul mate? Who is it?

Warmly,
