Comparisonly Speaking

Have you ever had moments in life where you aren’t who you are because others compare you to someone else? This week happens to be my moment. I’ve had three people tell me I look and act like someone and they all said the same person. I know who this person is but I found myself doing a Google search to read up on where she ranks in coolness. I’m kidding, sort of, I wanted to see what about her drew the comparison. After looking at her pictures, and reading about her accomplishments, I still couldn’t see it.

This made me think about the resemblance between Sarah Palin and Tina Fey. They don’t act the same, but by popular consensus there is a similarity in looks. But is there? I mean, Tina Fey wore her hair the same way as Sarah Palin, wore similar glasses and acted like her. Did her change in appearance, or acting make us think she looks like Sarah, or does she really resemble Sarah Palin? I did another Google search to see if there is a scientific reason how and why we compare people, but I couldn’t find anything, or maybe I put in the wrong search words.

Is there someone out there resembling you in looks and character, and do you see it? Inquiring minds want to know.


  1. Yes, and I can see hints of that person in my looks and even my mannerisms, but I would never identify myself with that person. I walk my own line. :)

  2. LOL! You go girl. Isn't it weird how we resemble other people? Being a believer in God, I sometimes wonder if he reuses molds... or all of them. ;) Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I had several people comment I look like Robyn Wright Penn (of Princess Bride fame). I wish I could see it!

    And yes, Sarah and Tina look eerily similar to me, but maybe it's just because I've been conditioned by the media!

  4. No comparisons with me here, but I recently saw a striking comparison to my daughter that had me do a double take! It's a funny feeling when you see those similarities. I like that idea of maybe re-using the mold, or perhaps refurbishing it first, then using it as new!

  5. Hey Rachel, you can't go wrong being compared to Buttercup, and I DO see a resemblance there. :D At first I thought they looked alike, but now seeing their pictures right next to each other, I'm not sure I see a huge similarity between Sarah and Tina. Thanks for stopping by.

    Joanne, it is a funny feeling like they stole your mold. LOL! Thanks for commenting, and I'm sure your daughter's lookalike botched their refurbishing. :D
