Doppleganger is Facebooks latest fad.
In order to celebrate Doppelganger Week, Facebook users switch their profile pictures to famous people they have been told they resemble. It could be Michael Jackson, Zach Efron, or if you’re lucky, Natalie Portman or Jennifer Aniston
The trend appears to be catching on like wildfire, so much so that its success is being compared to that of the “bra color” status updates. The bra color trend had women updating what color bra they were sporting that day in order to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Here is my contribution to Doppleganger week. No, I am not going to put it on Facebook. This is me and boyfriend:
It’s not a celebrity but these are the two characters I thought were most like us so I broke the rules a little bit. I think it still counts.
I used to update my blog everyday. It was just a natural daily routine.
Then I became addicted to Twitter.
The stuff I used to blog about is now shortened into a 140 character tweet. I want to live in a world where my blog and my twitter are able to coexist. I can and I will make my blog and my twitter get along and play nicely.
I am converting into a lefty. Why? Because my right hand failed me and I’m stuck in this thing for 4-6 weeks. When my doctor (whose looks resembled a frog) told me to keep this thumb prison on for 6 weeks I just looked at him and said “and by 6 you mean 3, right?” he didn’t like my joke.
Whenever someone asks me what happened I change the story.
I was having a thumb war with sasquatch
I was swimming with little mermaid when a shark attacked her, I punched the shark to save Ariel
I ran into a burning building to save 14 children and tripped on my way out
Sex with a prostitute, it’s dangerous
Obama bit me.
I am an elephant trainer, an elephant sat on me.
I was in a roller derby tournament
The truth is…the true story is very boring.
Every time I visit boyfriends step mother I come back with a bunch of junk she tells me is priceless that nobody would want. This is the same woman who bought me extra large lingerie for Christmas a few years ago. I went to visit her Sunday and in just one visit I came back with enough ridiculous gifts I couldn’t even twitter about them all because it would take more than 140 characters.
The first gifts was this Hex Bug, it reacts to light and sound like a real bug. She was so excited about it I had to respond in the same manner and tell her how cool I thought it was.
It’s a robotic bug, I hate bugs. Not to mention its about as hard to operate as a toy car but on the side of the package it says “Don’t for children under 14 years.” Somebody needs to check their grammar and what kind of 9 year old kid can’t play with a toy bug?
Next gift, The amazing non stop top.
With a built in light show, need I say more?
Gift number three, Cyber Clean (aka Schmutz absorber aka GAK)
Apparently I am suppose to use it to clean my keyboard, yea that’s not happening. I don’t care if it works, it smells like bleached puke.
Then she gave me some tea, I was excited about it because I love tea. Then I found out the tea had been opened and used, she gave me her leftovers.
She also gave me some honey straws to go in my tea. That would have been ok if they weren’t expired and black licorice flavored honey. But they were.
To top it off she gave me a circular storage box she says I should use it to hold soap and stuff, she used to use it to hold her pajamas. It has a hole in the bottom. Boxes with holes in them don’t work.
One time my roommater and I drank this juice “Mondo” for and saved the empty bottles. When we were done we placed the empty bottles on a boys bed then covered it up with his comforter. It was pretty much genius.
This was one of the most unhealthy pranks I have ever done, I mean look at the amount of Mondo I had to drink. It’s disgusting.
…we stayed up all night laughing until I couldn’t laugh anymore but couldn’t stop either which sounded like a grandpa wheezing? Which then made you laugh so hard you peed your pants?
Oh yea, and you were wearing a tutu on your head while holding a balloon with ninjas on it. I am so glad I caught this moment on camera.
I love my life. I apologize for how embarrassing this picture is.
