THEN

NOW

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT A MEANOLDMOMMY LOOKS LIKE?
Well, I'm pretty sure only 4 people read this blog (Thanks Chantal, Alison, Jo and Christopher); and two of you already know what I look like (God help you). Well, today at the doctor's office, I held the elevator door open for a man who was moving slowly, walking with with a cane. We exchanged pleasantries, and he then shyly remarked that I look a lot like Debbie Reynolds and "exude her warmth". Hmmm, that's a first, but I like it. I'm going to take this celebrity comparison over the last one I had - when "Leaving Las Vegas" first came out years ago, I would walk down the street and strangers would walk up to me and tell me how much I look like Elizabeth Shue
- yes, apparently I bore a striking resemblance to a down and out prostitute, and people seemed to think it was okay to excitedly point this out to me. Debbie Reynolds? I've come a long way baby!

Now that you mention it, I *am* kind of wondering what you look like. And I wonder if Debby Reynolds is a big improvement over Elizabeth Shue: terminally perky vs down and out hooker. A tough call in my books. *grin*

You'll have to come out to the next blogger chix outing so we can see in person.

No way! When I first met Neil, he said I look like Elizabeth Shue in Adventures in Babysitting! (Check out my profile pics on facebook) :-) Karen
