Lookie Likie

Who do you look like? Have you ever been mistaken for them? Who do you know that looks like someone else? Are you a twin? Have you ever played any twin-swap jokes?

Apparently, I bare more than a passing resemblance to Rowan Atkinson's slapstick character, Mr. Bean. At first, I thought it was everyone trying to wind me up, but people I have never met have mentioned it.

Tim: A child single to Coventry please. Bus driver: It's Roland Atkinson [sic]!

And then there were the group of first years in my school (one of them Nik's sister. Traitor!) who used to chase me around shouting at me, "It's Mr. Bean!"

Then again, half the people I know say I look nothing like him, so there is hope on the horizon!

Apparently, I look like Konnie, the maniacally permanently- laughing Blue Peter presenter. No idea if it's true or not.

Apparently I look like Topanga from that show 'Boy meets world.' I dont se it, really. But many other beg to differ that it is Christina Ricci I look like. So i guess it's either one. Neither is hideously horrid.

I'm too hideous to look like anyone famous, apparently. However someone once told me that I look like Kim from Fresh Hell... I don't see it, but whatever, I guess!

One of my teachers, Mr. Goble, looks exactly like the guidance counselor guy on "South Park." You know, big old head, black hair, receding hairline... the first time I saw that character on the show, I almost died laughing. Oh God.

Katie - my algebra teacher looks, sounds, and acts just like Mr. Garrison on South Park!! He doesn't carry a puppet, though.

Actually I met a person who looks stunningly like me -- not famous at all, but we took pictures of the two of us standing side by side for good measure.

People looking at the photo often point to the wrong person when asked which is me.

The first time I saw my double from across a crowded room, I had the oddest sense of looking at myself from afar ... almost as if I were outside of myself.
