Charity collector, Manchester City Centre, 2009: "Hey you! Hey, Steve Coogan-looking guy!"

I've also been told to stay away from late night swimming in reference to Jeff Buckley, and when I was born I was nearly called Sid due to my post-popping out resemblance to Vicious.

Lisa Snowden. A manic Filipino nurse at work always calls me Lisa Snowden. I do not look like her. We just have the same first name.

Many customers at work and my mother think that I look like Kristen Vangness from that show Criminal Minds. I kinda see it.

A couple years ago I was in a Shari's on Thanksgiving and someone came up to me and said "Jemaine...?"

They were sober, even.

also two teenage girls at a show were convinced I was somebody. I never found out who, but I could tell I was breaking their hearts by denying their conviction I was said dude. The more I told them they had the wrong guy, the more convinced they became their hero was a jerk.

When I was ten, my mom thought I looked like Leo DiCaprio in This Boy's Life.

(Not true, by the way)

Only one I've ever gotten was Luke Wilson by 3 people in past decade. I don't look like him though. Maybe something in the jaw line but that's about it.

It doesn't happen often, and only one of these people counts as a real "celebrity" but...

Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub (when I was way younger and had way more hair)

Anthony Hopkins (for whatever it's worth, this was told to me by a Taiwanese person in a rural town)

Renard/Victor Zokas, the Russian villain in that recent Bond film played by the actor Robert Carlyle (or so says a nice-looking woman who works at a fashion magazine)

I don't think I look a damn thing like any of these people.

Do you find this has died off since he admitted his jerk-off indiscretions?

Anyway, I have to regularly check if the guy from Viktor and Rolf who looks like me still looks like me, and which of us is in better shape.

I'm still recovering from my Jan Ulrich-style "winter training" so I guess it'll be a while till I'm that lean again.

in the love line thread, jimmy spako wrote:here's one for you, true story.
i've left out names & places.

i came home today to find the following letter in my mailbox, addressed to my full name.
it's handwritten in german on a single page of stationary.

here's my translation:

a girl i have never met before wrote:hello,
my name is ----- -----. i'm 22 years old & live in (part of my city).

i'm looking for a person. i think that i saw you once quite some time ago. you look like an american actor named peter firth (captain andrew brynner from the movie "the chill factor").

i would like to get to know you better.

even if you are not peter firth, the actor, if you only look a little like him, that'd be enough for me.

maybe we could get to know one another better sometime.
please write me back!
i'm waiting for an answer from you!

(full name & address)


i google image searched this peter firth. i don't think i look much like him at all. also he is twenty one years older than me. so i don't know whether to feel very very slightly insulted or whether to feel very very slightly flattered or whether to have someone check for priors, send the bunny to her aunt & uncle in the country, you know, take precautions.

i hope this chick doesn't shoot ronald reagan.
or ron reagan jr.
i'd have a hard time dealing with something like that.

i tried to google this person & may have found her facebook profile.
i don't think it's a prank.

this is not a love line matter, but i thought i would appreciate your take on it.

yours,

"not even peter firth (captain andrew brynner from the movie the chill factor) in d."
