What's in a Face?

Like Melissa, I need to start a section called "ideas I totally stole from Marnie". But this was too good for me to pass up!! This face recognition thing on My Heritage is awesomely funny and cool, and something an adoptee like me CANNOT pass up. I urge you to try it! My husband and I have been taking people's photos (after we got bored with our own) and trying them, too. So, here are TWO photos, with TWO results for me!



I have no idea who any of these people are. Except of course, Demi Moore, and I don't think I look a thing like her. Plus, do you see ANYTHING Asian in my features? So, I had to try it again. Here is attempt #2:



What's with all the Asian references? And KELLY FREAKIN' OSBORNE?? Uh...no. Don't see that at all.

For those of you wondering what happened to the fro-like curly hair, just know that I have a love affair with a certain ceramic flattening iron.

So, who do YOU think I look like? Feel free to guess at my genealogy and ethnicity. And feel for me tomorrow, as I will be accompanying Songbird and 20 middle school students on a bus at 5:30AM to all-region choir auditions! Wish us all luck!

Okay - when I did this, I got Ashton Kutcher and Leonardo DiCaprio(as a toddler). And - a bunch of asian women I had never heard of. That put me off.

Guess your authnicity? Hmmm....I would say you have some Venezuelian in you - as well as perhaps some of the Islands? (Jamaica, Barbados?) I'm just guessing, obviously. I suck at this kind of thing...

OK this is funny.. I think I can read your mind...

After the first one I thought to myself... I have no clue who any of these people are, except Demi. I was hoping you would shed some light on it for me.. but as I scrolled you wrote:

I have no idea who any of these people are. Except of course, Demi Moore.

Then I look at the second one... immediately "KELLY FREAKING OSBOURNE?!"

I'm killing myself over here about that.

Here are my thoughts:

~The Asian thing may come down to your gorgeously shiny, dark hair. (People, I have hair shine competition here. Big time.)
~Love those dangly earrings.
~Ethnicity.. hmm. Tough one. I will take a stab at it and say possibly Mediterranean.

I'm going to go flat iron now.

Mom and I have always thought you had an Asian look. I know I've told you that! Also, you remind me so much of my friend who is Italian. You don't really look like each other, but you have similar features if that makes sense.

BUS TRIP WITH ALL THOSE KIDS you will look like Bela Lagosa

Isn't Vanessa Marcil on a soap opera? I think so...but I'm usually wrong about almost everything. It also said I look like Jet Li. Apparently I'm an asian guy. You could do much worse!

This thing is so funny. I think everyone should be required to do it. And I wil steal something from Marnie right here in the comments - I love those earrings. :)

kelli osborne?? NO freakin way!! How about Angie Harmon!!

Maybe Kelly Osborne because of the shape of your eyes.. maybe? That's me studying hard with my glasses on and my nose almost touching the screen.

I don't see asian. I don't pay much attention to ethitencity. (is that a word and if it is did even come close to spelling it right?) I think MJ is right, it's the shiny dark hair that brings it up. Do another one with curly hair and see what they say then.

I'm afraid to do it. What if they say I look like Rosie Odonell? Or Rosanne Barr. Please Lord No. Please.

I'm going to try out my super hero slow computer connection right now. If I don't get bored and frustrated and if I don't say too many curse words then I'll post it tonight on my blog. (Those are a LOT OF IF's!)

Hair tip. I used Sleek by Redkin tonight on my hair. Makes it so smooth and has lots of body. Only use it on the tips.

Oh yeah, I can kind of see Angie Harmon, claudia. That makes a lot more sense. :)

Rachel Hunter - something about the smile

I'm going to have to do this again with a curly haired photo!!

And Vicki - they give you about 10 people in your profile, and one of mine further down the list WAS Rosanne Barr! I was mortified!

You look so different to me in every picture. I think you're a chameleon.

I like the pictures of you in this post a lot! But there's no way in hell you look like Kelly Osbourn. No Way.
