    I know it doesn't matter...

    but i DO try to imagine we are all sitting in a teacher's lounge and chatting. I have imagined all of you...but with only icons to go by i am SURE i have you all wrong. So here is a poll that will give us a clue by which we can imagine each other.

    How tall are you?
    hair color?
    Eye color?
    If you want to add age...that's ok. If not- no prob.
    And.. what star's looks (if any) would be the CLOSET to yours? (If you have to alter it.. example: "Will and Grace's Grace - but with short hair" that's ok.

    Ok... I'll go first

    McKenna

    Height: 5' 3.5"

    Hair: Brunette (not dyed or highlighted-so an even shade)

    Eyes: A pale, sage green

    Age: Mentioned it enough - I'm 50

    Looks like:A few years and a NUMBER of pounds ago...I had looked like Sandra Bullock. Dang it-she's aging better than I. (I should add...not the glamorous red-carpet Sandra...but a cashier on the elevated train line-While You Were Sleeping Sandra) :lol:

    Height: 6'0" exactly.

    Hair: Medium-dark brown, with gray coming through in parts

    Eyes: olive green to light brown, depending on ambient light and my allergies. (Yes, my allergies. When the whites of my eyes get red and puffy, then the irises look *really* green.)

    Age: 33

    Looks like: I think I touched on this briefly before. The only time anyone has said "You look like this guy on TV" has been to compare me to the actor Michael E. Knight, and admittedly more than a few people have made the comment. (Note, this is Tad Martin on the soap opera All My Children, not David Hasselhoff's character in Knight Rider)

    Here's the thing, though: I've seen what "Tad" looked like when the actor was 33 (my age), and I think I look *nothing* like that. That being said, the actor is now 50, and I can kinda sorta see a resemblance with how he looks today at 50, and how I look today at 33.

    For what it's worth, I have an 18yo half-sister who looks like a Sicilian version of Anne Hathaway, and a 35yo cousin who could conceivably win an Ashley Judd lookalike contest.

    Oh, yeah. My stepdad also looks like a cross between college basketball coach Rick Majerus, and Hoss from Bonanza.

    Looks like: I've been told that I look like Alyson Hannigan (The flute girl from American Pie) and Christina Ricci. I see it a bit, but I also think I look a little like Debra Messing.

    I know who you're talking about! He was my favorite actor on that show. What a handsome guy you must be. I have an uncle who used to look like him until he lost his hair and gained 40 lbs LOL

    ME:
    5'1 (on a good day) :rolleyes:

    Light brown hair. In the summer I get natrual blonde highlights. People think I'm lying when I say I don't get my hair done :confused:

    Eyes are a gray/blue.

    I'm in my early 30s although I can pass for a High School student if I don't wear any makeup. People think I should be happy about this :huh:

    I don't think I look like anyone famous. I guess I'm unique :blush:

    How tall are you? 5'5

    hair color? Blond, sometimes with a touch of pink in it

    Eye color? Very vivid blue. I get comments all the time. They are huge, as are dh's, and we joke our kid is going to have eyes the size of saucers on their face.

    If you want to add age: 27

    Celebrity? Hmmm.... No idea.

    Height: 5'4"
    Hair: dark brown, about chin length (growing in out) and wavy/frizzy depending on the humidity and if I can get it to cooperate in the morning
    Eyes: hazel
    Age: mid-30's
    Looks like: no one but my mom. I have had a couple people tell me I remind them of Anne Hathoway, and I appreciate the complement because she is lovely, but I just don't see it. She has long brown hair, mine is short. She has huge deep brown eyes, mine are smaller and a bit squinty. She has clear peaches and cream skin, and I am prone to blotchy redness and acne. If I had to choose one actress's feature I have it would be Julia Roberts's huge toothy grin.

    :eek: Aww, shucks.

    Well, at least it explains why the women who let me date them are invariably AMC fans.

    To be fair, I could stand to lose (quite) a few pounds myself.

    I grew my relaxer out for a year and then I began the process. I use the loc stitch method because I was told that it would help my hair loc faster and I wouldn't have to go to get it done as often. It will be three years in December that I have had my hair locked and I love it.

    I got mobbed (sort of) once at Pentagon City because they thought I was Monica Lewinsky. I actually got that a few times until everything blew over.

    Now I get Jeanne Tripplehorn with weird regularity.

    Hair: just below shoulders brown
    Eyes: brown
    Age: 27 Like someone else posted - I'm told all the time I barely look old enough to be out of high school. They always say that should make me happy... Today it was annoying - the cashier AND the manager at the store wouldn't sell me the twisted tea I wanted because they thought my ID was a fake because I don't look my age.... Ugh!
    Celebrity I've been told I look like: Katie Holmes and Kellie Martin

    5'5"
    naturally blonde but dyed dark brown
    My eyes have all three basic colors and their appearance depends on what I wear (jewel tones tend to make my eyes bluer, earth tones really bring out the hazel-green, and dark shades almost always make them a slate blue-gray.)
    28
    I've been told I'm a combination of Mischa Barton and Nikki Cox (only a couple of times)... but if you really want to know, look at my profile pic - my daughter is my little mini me - especially when I wear clothes that make my eyes that startling blue that her eyes are.[/QUOTE]

    I'm 5'3

    Hair is a light brown but has turned very blonde this summer (My hubby even noticed)

    Eyes are light blue and my right one has a stripe in it.

    Just last week I was told and have been before that I look like Uma Thurman, which I don't think so. Also, Heather Graham.

    EDIT: I'm 23.... I forgot to mention that thanks IrishDave!
