something about the way i look tonight

So. Veronica made me do it. I registered atMyHeritage.com so that I could see which celebrity I look most like. Here's how it works: you choose the most flattering photo of you that's already loaded on your computer because you're too lazy to go get the most recent professional portrait and scan it in... and you upload it to myHeritage. This is the photo I chose. It was taken 3.5 years ago.

And this, my friends, is who I most resemble:


WELL. In a huff, I decided that that.just.would not do! Let's face it: Elton is an ulgy woman. So I thought I'd be better off using a more recent photo, and I uploaded THIS one, taken last summer in Ireland:

MyHeritage worked its magic, and gave me this result:


Hmpf. Maybe it's the bangs. Yah. It's the bangs. I don't HAVE bangs anymore. So I decided to upload the MOST recent photo of me - one taken two weekends ago at a scrapbooking retreat:


I got the following result:


In one final, desperate attempt, I decided to upload the nastiest photo of me on my hard drive. I'm shooting for WOMAN here. Even hideously ugly woman would suffice.


You can imagine my dismay when this popped up as my look-a-like:


The bitch, oh the bitch, oh the bitch is back.
(Cold stone sober, as a matter of fact.)

I s'pose I'd rather look like Elton John than Jim Carrey.
But STILL. I was really, reallllly hoping for Catherine Zeta-Jones. That MyHeritage is jacked UP.

lolololol

I think it's the glasses, Stace.

But still.
ROFLMAO

Sherilyn said...

Oh my. Corey apparently resembles Gene Kelly about 57% and I resemble Chris Evert 64%. In another photo, Corey ended up with Edward Norton and I got (and I am NOT kidding about this) Rick James. Yes, RICK JAMES. 63% I think Rick James trumps both Elton John AND Jim Carrey.

Still ROFLMAO

Veronica in Aus said...

LOL

I sincerely apologise.

I had no idea.

And I really don't think you look like Elton John or Jim Carey. The software is faulty. You'd better put in a complaint.

Meg said...

ROFLMAO! I think I'm gonna pee myself! That is absolutely hilarious Stacy. Of course it means I'm gonna have to go there and see what they say about me. I'll return and give you my results!

Ginger said...

DEFINITELY, it must be the glasses!! That's hilarious! Off to check it out myself...

ginger said...

Okay, I did it. I'm apparently a best match (60%)for....Aretha Franklin!! ROFL! I guess you learn something new about yourself every day!

Martha in CA said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Here's what I know:
1. Don't be drinkin' something when you read Stacy's blog
2. Make sure you've completely emptied your bladder before reading Stacy's blog
3. Wear a panty liner just in case said bladder isn't empty before reading Stacy's blog
4. Stacy really doesn't look like Elton John - well, not that much...heh, heh, heh!!
5. Stacy is MUCH shorter than Jim Carey!

Oh. And Sherilyn, you don't look that much like Rick James either! Course, I've never seen you with a summer tan or an afro or with 'Soul Glow' in your hair!

OMFSM!! You know I'm just yankin' the both of you! Of course, I can't wait to go see who I look like! They better not come up with Star Jones from two years ago!

Jenny said...

Oh Stace...I peed the chair!!!

That is hilarious! OMG, I haven't laughed this hard in days.

Elaine said...

(Jerry actually really does look kinda like Jim Carrey. Or he *did*, with the haircut he had when we first got married. People used to stop him in public places and tell him that all the time.)

Trying to think if I *have* a picture of myself on this computer....

Nancy said...

Stacy

Thank you so much for sharing this! I am still chuckling about it. Kind of makes me afraid to give it a try!

LOL!
That is too funny. Can't believe how many photos you tried out with the same result.

Nancy D. said...

Oh dear..... Yea, what Marf said.

And like E... I wonder if I HAVE a photo in the computer....

Well, I have NO photos in THIS computer. A hidden blessing of The Great Digital Photo Debacle.

agent713 said...

Okay Stacy, this makes me feel SO much better!
~Heidi...aka John Cleese :blink:

Karen said...

HAHAHAHHAAH...
i am looking so hard for a picture of myself.. gone so far as to ask the mother to emial me one.... although it seems that the computer program picks up one feature in your photo (ie.. Jim carey and his BIG mouth.. along with yours!) heehhehe i am laughing so hard.. boss said looks like you are having too much fun here!

Nancy - nowimscrappin said...

Funny. Funny. I love it!!

Martha said...

I on the other hand came up looking like Halle Berry! Yes folks, you see pudgey face, middle age, phoney blond and who immediately comes to mind: Why, Halle Berry of course! Upon further review I apparently resemble BOTH Madeline Albright AND John Kerry. My DH thought that should be grounds for an annulment (he being the conservative one in this marriage!)

Karen said...

OK I got a match... but i need a better picture.. Patricia Arguette
not bad.... i guess if you don't mind looking like a drug addict from vegas.... i am going do it again tonight

Kim said...

I think Elton John danced on a piano once.....

Cyndy said...

That is one of the funniest things I have seen or heard in YEARS! I'm crying it's so funny. Bless your heart. I totally agree with everyone..gotta be the glasses. Mine are similar, so I'll try it and let you know.

Cara said...

I can see the future!! What do I see.....I see Halloween 2006 and Stace dressed in a hot pink patent leather suit playing the piano and singing like mad. Do you see it too???

Just so everyone knows, I peed the chair too!

Veronica in Aus said...

Cara - I happen to know that Stacy has the perfect wig to go with that outfit too!!!! ROFL!!!! I can picture it vividly in my head :)

miss rogue said...

This is hilarious! Thanks for the good laugh.

Kaye said...

Oh my goodness! I am dying laughing over here. :) Too funny!!!

~~Carrie Ann said...

Stacy, I nearly peed my pants! I can't breathe, I'm laughing so hard! HAHAHAHAAHA! Now I want to do it! You know who always comes up for me? Corey Feldman. Corey Feldman! I've got to check and see if that still holds true!

We are both prettier than either of those MEN! :P
