I’ve sundopplemek to a new low in my attempt to amuse myself.  I’ve been playing around with avatars, courtesy of Doppleme.  So here I am, heading to the gym.  The likeness is striking.  It appears I have had three espressos,two hours sleep and downed a 6-pack of donuts before heading out.  Stunning. 

Avatars aside, do you have a real life doppelganger?  You can find your celebrity look-a-like here, if you want to be rich and famous, or at least have a great Halloween costume for next year.  The “How I Met Your Mother” Doppelganger episode is a fun take on the idea.  I’m not sure if I have one, unless you count my daughter who is way too much like me at her age.  I’ll have to keep an eye out for the real dopple-me.  Yet another way to amuse myself over a latte at the coffee shop.


  1. I've been told I look very much like a woman who works at a flower shop in our town. I keep meaning to drop by the flower shop sometime to see if she really does look like me, but I've never gotten around to it.

  2. Your description of 'you' made me snort out loud. When I was in high school people kept telling me I looked like some blonde soap opera character. Then I got old and people stopped saying that. I have a friend with curly hair who always got told she looked like Sarah Jessica Parker, then some old woman at a writer's retreat told her she looked like Art Garfunkel. Ouch.

  3. art garfunkel? ouch indeed.

    there is a woman at work that everyone mixes me up with. she is nice, so i don't mind. but other than the fact that we both wear glasses and have bangs, i don't see the sameness.

  4. When I was in my 20s, almost 75% of new people I met told me I looked "exactly" like someone they knew - their cousin, someone they went to high school with, their dry cleaner. It got to the point of hilarity, then it got to the point of scary, then it got to the point of annoying. I guess I have a very, very generic look.

    It doesn't happen very often anymore, though...I wonder why. Maybe I'm not meeting as many new people, or maybe I've gotten more distinguished in my old age.

    Can't wait to try out that doppleganger site, though. I am OBSESSED with casting my friends and family with famous people. We'll see how close I am with everyone I know, according to the site!
