Doppelgänger Week

There’s this thing going around Facebook where everyone is changing their profile picture to a famous celebrity and calling it Doppelgänger Week, posting this in their status:

It’s Doppelgänger week. Change your profile picture to someone famous you have been told you look like. After you update your profile with your twin or switched at birth photo then cut/paste this to your status.

I didn’t get the Doppelgänger reference, so the first thing I did was look it up on the Internet.

Doppelgänger– noun– the ghostly counterpart of a living person; any double or look-alike of a person.

Well, that seemed fair enough. Nothing surprising there. Then I wikipedia’d it (I like how that word has become a verb in popular vernacular now), and I found this:

Doppelgänger– The word is also used to describe the sensation of having glimpsed oneself in peripheral vision, in a position where there is no chance that it could have been a reflection. They are generally regarded as harbingers of bad luck. In some traditions, a doppelgänger seen by a person’s friends or relatives portends illness or danger, while seeing one’s own doppelgänger is an omen of death.

Everyone on Facebook is embracing bad luck, eh?

Well, not to be left out, I decided to look up what celebrity I look like. Of course, I will forgo posting it on FB and will instead indulge you, dear readers, by sharing with which famous individual I share a similar facial structure.

Sadly, with the first photo I uploaded, I was told that I look like no one famous. A disappointment (or not?). But then I just chose another picture. Apparently, according to MyHeritage.com, I look like:

Helen Hunt (72%)


Emmy Rossum (62%)


Kristin Davis (61%)


Enid Blyton (61%)


That last one is probably my favorite. And she’s an author. Rather fitting, I suppose.

You Make My Dreams

Currently Listening To:
Song– You Make My Dreams (Album Version)

Artist — Hall & Oates

From– (500) Days of Summer soundtrack


This song makes me want to prance down the sidewalk snapping my fingers in a chorus line. Or, like in the movie, join a giant spontaneous dance number in the park. It’s such a fun song.

“Fear the time when the strikes stop while the great owners live – for every little beaten strike is proof that the step is being taken … fear the time when Manself will not suffer and die for a concept, for this one quality is the foundation of Manself, and this one quality is man, distinctive in the universe.” -Steinbeck

To Live…

“Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem.” -Whitman

Love

“The world we live in will either be better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. And that’s where the power of love comes in. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.”
– The Alchemist
