I was so happy when my friend Alex told me at our super fun and modern Academy Awards party that she thinks I look like Lumi Cavasos from Like Water for Chocolate. She is totally pretty and I remember really liking that movie back in 1992. It made me feel real smart because there were subtitles.
Then I thought – hey wasn’t Johnny Depp in that one? Turns out no – he was in Chocolat from Y2K. I don’t remember liking that movie as much- but I do see a striking resemblance between me and Johnny D!
Thanks, Alex for the compliment and the reminder and for being a fun friend. I will send you your Academy Award winnings soon.
Please think of me fondly next time you see a movie about Chocolate. And please think of Johnny next time you hear my hit song “Fathoms”.
C’mon – I totally look like J Lo. Here she is in Y2K’s The Cell. I wish I had that red suit – I would totally break in to people’s MINDS in it. There’s me wearing silk overalls in 2010. I’ve gotta find those.
And here are J Lo and me now. In these pictures, she is playing a tough cop on TV’s Shades of Blue, and I’ve been taking a lot of drugs – can you believe the drugs actually turned my hair curly?! (That Weird Al hair was a total perm).
Turns out I was mistaken about needing only one day of brain radiation. I found out today that I would need 10. days. in. a. row. Geez. I will be bald by the end of it. Man, just as I was warming up to my weird curly hair.
I do hope that I will still look like J Lo.
Please think of me fondly next time you hear “Jenny from the Block,” and please think of J Lo next time you hear my hit song “Chaperone.”
One of my favorite things:
when people tell me that I look JUST LIKE someone they know or that I totally remind them of their COUSIN or BOSS. This happened to me daily when I was less of a hermit – but it still happens alllll the time.
I love it because:
A. I love FITTING IN – and being a look a like is fitting in to the max.
And also A. I love the idea of being remembered through others – as a reflection or shadow or shade – a ripple effect. It feels a little magical to me. And a little like living forev.
So if you didn’t realize it before – you’ll note that I look very much like Weird Al. Please think of me fondly next time you hear “Eat It”. And please think of Weird Al next time you hear my hit song “Cult 2”.
Also – if I remind you of anyone else you know – I want to know who! I would love to add more look alikes to my roster.
