Nikki forwarded this website on to me the other day, and I finally gave it a try today: http://www.myheritage.com
. I uploaded two pictures for analysis, and here are the results I received for my face:
- Grace Kelly
- Meryl Streep
- Rosanna Arquette
- Kate Winslet - 2 times
- Melanie Chisholm (sporty spice)- 2 times
- Holly Hunter
- Brittany Murphy
- Molly Ringwald
- Kylie Minogue
- Jennifer Lopez
- Tony Danza
- Patrick Ewing
The last two crack me up. I honestly don't think I look like any of these peeps.

- I can't wait to hug Mom.
- And Dad.
- I'm tired of believing in someone only to be let down.
- I love cheese.
- I have never spent 40 minutes on the Dam Road before.
- When your ride in to work takes more than double the usual amount of time, chances are good that your whole day is gonna suck.
- When you accidentally spill a liter bottle of water down the v-neck of your shirt, you walk right past all the people in the vestibule trying to wait out the rain, because, hell, how much wetter can you get?
- Amy holds the trophy for funniest thing I heard all week.
- Just once it'd be nice to know what it feels like to be on a pedestal.
- Part of my big toenail fell off a few weeks back, and it looks gnarly growing back in.
- I don't know what I want.
- I miss the beach.
- Nikki had her baby and it's a boy named Tyler. Yay for her!
- I hope Karie kicks ass in the Dragon Boat Race this weekend.

- I hate being itchy.
- I'm angry about my mortgage hike.
- Wish I could pull/kill weeds with my eyes.

Friday Five1. What don't you understand?
How Bush could consciously veto the stem cell bill. 2. Name someone in your life with blue eyes:
John Fenstermacher.3. When is a lie not really a lie?
When it's in the other person's best interest. Like, hiding a surprise party. 4. When is the last time you got really dirty?
Almost daily, but probably the other day at Cherry Creek Reservoir.5. Are you a lefty or a righty?
I'm a bothy. Mostly righty. (I was born a lefty, but my kindergarten teacher made me switch to righty claiming that life would be easier for me that way.)

I swear that one of my nostrils produces about 50% more than its partner. Is uneven booger production the norm?
Wow- I really have a nasty theme going this week, don't I? Enjoy! ;-)
Had a difficult day. Heard this song on my walk tonight and it just felt appropriate.
"Goodbye To You" - Breaking PointThere's so much I want to say now
But it's too late I know
There's no way to heal these wounds now
And my heart bleeds for you
And our love is crashing
Like a tidal wave
Coming over me
So I wanted you to know
That I finally let you go
After all I've held on to
This is my goodbye to you
I was always there for you
But you never saw the truth
And the reason that i know
Is I've finally let you go
Yesterday you were my best friend
But tomorrow took you away
There's not much for me to say now
Just goodbye, farewellAnd our love is crashing
Like a tidal wave
Coming over me
And every time I close my eyes
My heart is bleeding deep inside
But now my eyes are open
And I'm never gonna be the one for you
The one for you
I finally let you go
Let you go
Let you go so this is my goodbye to you.
Happy Birthday, Karie!
Hope it's a good one! :-)

Where did pirates poop? Just off the side of their ships? I'm assuming they just peed wherever, but where did the doodie go? I know there's a poop deck, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't its purpose.

Adventures in almost being white trash
It is supposed to be over 100 degrees today. And I was incredibly indecisive about what I wanted to wear, and while digging through the overstuffed mess that is my closet, I came across my fun white summer skirt. Could there be a more appropriate day to wear it? While getting ready, I got a little bit of schmootz on it, but got it cleaned up all bright and shiny. I'd been at work not a few hours and felt a pang for a little snack, so I went to the kitchen, had about 7 cheetos and threw out the rest of the bag, cuz I just wasn't feelin' 'em, y'know? It only takes one I guess, but I got Cheetos dust on the edge of my pristine white skirt. I spent lunch rockin' it Britney Spears-style. I'm happy to say, since returning to the office I have annihilated the stain.
An Outlet for all the [previously] Useless Knowledge in My Brain
There's a new game show on VH1 called The World Series of Pop Culture
. I knew the answers to all but three questions last night. Jeapordy is for well-rounded smarties, this show is for those of us who graduated with Television-Radio Communications degrees!
Mike told me about the show - so we have 2 of our 3 teammates. We're trying to think of a third. Needless to say, I have sent off an e-mail to try and get us on the show's next installment. How fun would that be???!!!

I Smell Like An Old Purse
Yesterday I visited the new Sephora store at the mall. And let me say --- It's about time it came to Denver!!! Anyway, I wanted to pick up a bottle of Clean [my signature scent] but they did not have it. Well, they had the parfoooom, but they did not have the toilet. I prefer the toilet. (IMAGINE THAT!) Anyway, the Sephora employee loitering in the perfume area was super nice and was introducing me to scents similar to my beloved Clean. She disappeared into the back and made me sample of the one I liked. Well, I put it on this morning and within 5 minutes I knew I was screwed. It smelled good for about 6 seconds and then it started to smell a bit like powdery old lady. It then morphed into old purse smell. You know, not dirty old purse, but a purse that's been around a block or two. It has that smell of oldish perfume, minty gum and money. Probably similar to that oldish lady in your accounting department. I tried to cover it up with a couple of other perfumes I had, but the purse smell prevailed. I can't wait to get home and wash it off.

What I Like About Klum
Maybe it's the full moon, maybe its a love affair with my DVR, or maybe I'm just hopped up on the homeopathic sleeping pills, but I think I've decided that I'm going to watch (read: season pass) the new season of Project Runway that starts tomorrow. I'm not into reality shows nor fashion so I'm not really sure what my deal is. I'm guessing it's mostly due to lack of anything else new on TV. Regardless, I'm in.
In other TV news, I've also season passed "What I Like About You." (It's replaced "That's So Raven" because I've now seen every episode ever made of that show.) They've been re-running two shows a weekday on the WB, so I'm almost completely caught up to the current season and I'm frightened that I'm ready for the new season in the fall. But I am. It's cheesy but fun.

Don't Make Me Moon You
My sister IMed me today and said that she was reading our horoscope and that tomorrow's full moon is for those of us born on January 11th or the 4 days before or after it. So, Mr. Moon, if I go buy a Powerball ticket, will you make it win on Wednesday night? I really don't think that's asking too much, you are the moon afterall.

Sick/Twisted but crazy Funny E-Cards
Check them out here
One of my faves:
Cute Boat Name I Saw When I Was at Cherry Creek Reservoir Today:
oh...and I saw my one-legged goose
friend from last summer.
Oh my pretty lovelies, you are my latest love. We've always been friends, but these past few weeks, our friendship has blossomed into full-blown obsession. I think about you constantly and can't wait to get home to you.
Love and kisses,
P.S. Mini-chocolate chip ones - you're my favorite.
To Sleep....per chance to dream
So, on Saturday night I finally took a sleep-aid. It was some homeopathic remedy and it surely did the trick. I actually slept through most of the night. And then on Sunday I continued the trend with several naps.
With the insomnia, I've had some issues distinguishing the difference between what I would dream and what was reality. I'd refer to a conversation that I thought I had with someone, when in reality it was a conversation I had with them in one of my lucid half-asleep insomnia-induced dreams. Crazy.
All the sleep is affecting me. I say "all" the sleep - when it's actually maybe 6 or 7 hours a night. My body and mind are all out-of-whack. I assume it is stress and in-my-head issues that have caused this year and a half-long bout of insomnia. I wake up and I am filled with sadness, disappointment, hurt, fear, anger, and overall melancholy. (I guess that's what happens when you sleep longer than a 20-minute spurt.) It dissapates after about an hour after waking up, but pieces of it haunt me all day. I try to battle it with positive thinking and hope.
Oddly, I think the root of all my sadness is fatigue. I'm tired. Tired of not being enough. Tired of being disposable, forgettable and unnecessary. Tired of working so hard -- only to be used and tossed aside. Then I'm disappointed that there's not enough to me to keep people interested and then comes the hurt and anger.
I'm going to say something here that is compeletely out of character for me....I would love to have a friend like me. You know why? Because I know how much love is in my heart and I know how loyal, generous, and trustworthy I am. I would pretty much do close to anything for someone I care about. As far as friends go, I don't think it gets much better than me. </conceit>
On the boy side, I know my lot. I'm not the cutesy type that boys want to make their girlfriend. I know I'm destined to always be one of the many. I'm the one who's always up for whatever, can carry a conversation, and is available when all the cutesies are busy. And if one of the cutesies happens to be where we're at, I know not to cock-block. I'm not gonna lie and say I'm okay with it, because I'm really not. I want to be enough to be the only girl. I'd be kick-ass at that too.
Mostly, I'm frustrated with how I've been pushed aside in the past year. I've been working through it and I think I'm nearing the end of the mourning process. And I obviously need to make changes moving forward.
See what happens when I sleep? I get all wah-wah poor me. :-)
