This is me.
In a picture with my daughter.
Taken by my son who’s 3.
This is what I look like.
Senor @tombriggs79 tagged me on this horror. The idea? Simple. I’ll use his words.
‘Question: have you ever been told that you resemble somebody famous? Next question: was the comparison flattering or the complete opposite?’
Yep. I have. And I’ll go in chronological order.
Jesus of Nazareth
Popular on telly when I was a youngling. I have blue eyes. Apparently I looked like this person. But without a beard. I was about 6 I think. I’m still surprised both me and the kids at school were able to sit up and enjoy watching such a programme.
Less popular on telly, as he didn’t have a chat show when I was growing up, but when I went to secondary school I got this. And since oddly. It’s one of those “eye” things again. Looky, see how much the me looks like the lover of the Russian Queen.
I’m sensing a theme here.
I was in a bar at university. I had very long hair at the time and Pearl Jam came on the video jukebox, singing either ‘Alive’ or ‘Jeremy’. But, from that day forth, until I got all my hair shaved off cos I was bored, I was told I looked like this fella.
A good friend said I looked like this guy, and then had to go onto the interweb to show me who she meant, as no-one knew WHO she meant. He’s in Saving Private Ryan. The Spielberg film. Not Shaving Ryan’s Privates, which is an entirely different movie. Oh how I laughed.
My most recent horror. The usually lovely @kat1eturner said I look like this fella a couple of weeks back, and has spent most of the time since pissing herself laughing as I, the me was, genuinely, shockled. In a Paul/Pauline Calf show he plays a character called Fat Bob. Oh how I laughed when she said I looked like Fat Bob.
A SIXTH! YOU RULEBREAKER!
This is the famous five post, but I can’t not mention the one that my kids do. At a certain time each day, when we were together, I’d get two little fingers pointing at the TV and shouting ‘It’s Daddy!’ Oh how I love my children.
And so to tag someone’s arse. I’m doing 3, and three people who I know will love this as much as I have. Roll call team, calling your names to go over the top this morning are;
The wonderful @Eliza_Do_Lots
The brilliant @Littlelightwork
And, the sublime @motherventing
Thanks for reading. And let me know if you do think I do or don’t, or don’t or do look like any of these people.
