Embracing Who Everyone Thinks I Am...

Whether you've met me or not, there may or may not be one question you're dying to ask me.  You guessed it... "Have you seen the movie the Shining?" Of course I have. It's a fantastic movie.  However, that's not their point. "You look just like the girl from that!!" (I try not to glare...) Has anyone stopped to think that you just told me I look like a crazed woman?! I seriously get stopped by strangers to be told that I look like none other than Shelley Duvall.  Ms. Duvall is a lovely, classy woman, but in the Shining she's rather frightening.  I think it's just the big eyes, dark hair and bangs. These are the images that pop into my head whenever someone asks me if I've seen the Shining. 
Don't get me wrong, it's a wonderful movie, but that image is just not what I want to think of myself as looking like! Then, a group of my friends decided that I look like Olive Oyl from Popeye. Guess what.  That's Shelley Duvall too! I cannot rock that hair-do...or the big shoes. 
So, I'd like to think that if people are going to say I look like Shelley Duvall, they think of these lovely photographs instead. :)

  1. Don't worry dearest, it's the big eyes, the bangs, and the gorgeousness. Not the craziness. =) Love!
