Dear Diary: Question of the Day(s)

Well... It doesn't get any better than a black leather fanny pack, turtleneck with thick figaro chain and belted mom jeans with, IDK, a federal courthouse backdrop?   #AimHigh

I've gotten both Sandra Bullock and Emma Thompson. I think they probably meant Sandra from Miss Congeniality (pre-makeover), and Emma from Harry Potter.

Nobody lately (except my dad in a wig), but people used to say Joanna Kerns and Lisa Hartman -- who both look very different to me, so I don't know what that means.

People seem to see my short hair and make a connection to someone else with short hair. Like Annie Lennox (I wish!) or current Jamie Lee Curtis, or, once in the 80's when my hair was bleached, Billy Idol. That was a sad day.

I don't get compared to any one now but people in high school used to say I looked liked Alyson Hannigan during the early seasons of "Buffy":

This is the gif where she looks the most like high school me.

I also used to get called "Daria" a lot because I always wore my dark brown hair down and I have a monotone voice and a sarcastic attitude:

I can't tell you how many people would say to me, "Oh my god, you look like some famous actress but I don't know who it is!" It wasn't until one person finally identified the famous person and I was kinda like, yeah, I do resemble her. It's Rebecca DeMornay:

For the record, I would never have sex with Tom Cruise in a subway car. Or anywhere else on Earth for that matter.

I get Melissa Rauch (facial structure and hair color - I'm not petite or close to that thin)

And Lauren Lapkus.

I don't think I look like either of them but if I had to choose it would be much closer to Melissa Rauch than Lauren Lapkus.

Years ago (circa 2004) someone told me I looked like Brittany Spears. I took it as an insult because I can't stand her music. I should have taken it as a compliment

I generally get no one but I was once told i looked like Mrs Ari on Entourage and I had to google it because I had no idea who she was.  I figure it was probably the hair based on the below picture.

Thirty years ago a dept store make-up person said I had Donna Mills type eyes. Maybe she wanted me to buy more products? For the past 15 years I've been told that I look like an area pediatrician. So, that's why little kids stare at me when I'm out & about 😊

In my mind's eye, I look like this:

or this:

And my mirror is damned liar.

Who knew we are along so many hotties!  I was told I look like Roz from Frazier one time.  That seems so lower level

Like I said, the lady who said look like that guy is a little odd. I don’t have blue eyes. Or movie star good looks. Heh.

I just remembered that I did the Celebrity Lookalikes like thing on the internet a while back. My favorite was a 27% match with Adam Levine. Woo! I’ll take it. (All 27% was clearly my beard matching his beard.)

I should dig up that photo.

So, I think the best food in my town can be found here....

But out-of-towners have to go to one of these places for the true local experience.  

McMenamins

I can't do a yelp review because:

1 - McMenamins is a local chain and each location is listed separately

2 - The Yelp reviews talk about the food and service, which misses the McMenamins point...

I need to spread these next two out to 2 posts.  I can't believe I almost forgot about this great little Mexican place that opened up right near me.  In a tiny strip mall attached to a gas station, of all places.  Casamigos

Fabulous place near the ballpark.  My sister had a fun experience there, so we went for lunch before an opening day game lo these many years ago.  Had a nice lunch.  Couple weeks later, came back after a Sunday afternoon game and the person who waited on us weeks ago remembered us! We were hooked. We now go at least 8 or 9 times during the season for dinner.  The people there are incredibly friendly.  And - bonus points - the food is really good!!

Sorry I asked the last question then went on a cross-country eating bender. Now I'm 900 pounds.

Be right with you..

What's something your parent or grandparent always said and told you you'd "understand when you get older"... and they were right?

It’s a cliche, but they always told me to save my pennies for a rainy day. My grandmother also told me to save my change. One year my (5 gallon) coffee bean container was full so I counted it out. Just a bit over $900. Enough to buy Christmas presents that year. Now I save them for vacations.  Even if it’s just a weekend away. I throw dollar bills in there too if I have over 5 of them.

I don't think my grandmother ever said "you'll understand when you are older," but she definitely told me things I didn't really need to know at the time.

She was the woman who told me how to order a drink in a bar (order a shot and a mixer.  That way they won't cheat you on the booze.)

I was 8 when she told me this.

My great grandmother always told me, when I was a kid watching her make meals, to clean up as you go while cooking, rather than wait until everything was finished. My 5-10-year-old self thought that was crazy, because it was obviously better to postpone the cleaning as long as possible, right? She said I’d understand when I was older. I still hate the cleaning part, but hell yeah, it’s much less daunting to clean as you go than face a mountain of debris and dirty pots and pans after you’ve cooked and everyone has eaten, so that there’s now also dirty dishes.

Two options: 1) Does she ever talk? or 2) Does she ever shut up?

I'm really bad at meeting new people and making small talk, so I tend to be really quiet or chatter nervously and share way too much information.
