The picture to the left over there is of me (duh) but it's a few years old. 14 in fact. I don't love posing for pictures. In fact, our family vacations usually look like I didn't even go. (Sometimes I wish I hadn't!)
I'm forever searching for a good picture of me and sadly, none exist. Maybe I should step in front of the camera more. That might actually produce a picture of me, eh? (I've just been to Canada so I can say 'eh'.) It might even produce a decent one of me. But why would I want to risk it not doing that?
My buddy Tamara knows nothing of my search for a decent picture. But coincidentally, she just found one. And let me know via email.
Here's her message:
You look like a modern day Lynda Carter aka Wonderwoman...
Go to Herbie's blog (http://www.herbiejpilato.blogspot.com/) and go way down the pictures on the right hand side ... you will see what I mean. Her smile and her eyes are you exactly!!!! Pretty Krissies!
Well, I've never looked like Lynda Carter a day in my life. But I humored Tamara and checked it out.
My first thought was... you're crazy! Then I started to like the idea. Then I decided that I liked the idea so much, that I'm going to use this picture of me... I mean, Lynda Carter, everywhere that I need a photo of me.
I wrote Tamara back:
She wrote back:
Yes, yes, YES! That one. It looks so much like you!! Her eyes and her smile. Do you see it?
So, what dooya think? Does it look like me?
I hope so, because it's going to go on my next driver's license. And passport.
Maybe I could steal Lynda Carter's whole identity! She'd never miss those little blue-starred shorts...
And I've never looked so good!
