Almost Famous

It seems that Internet fads come in waves. I tend to gravitate towards the visually-based products. Last December, an application that compared your face to a database of random celebrities emerged and swept through the blogging community. You may remember my disastrous results.

This time around; I'm taking matters into my own hands. I will decide who I look like. MorphThing is this fascinating new site I found that will blend two faces together in a blows-my-mind-type application that was incredibly easy to use. I've spent my time today (Saturday, at work, so don't you dare judge me for one second) blending me with celebrities. It's the closest thing I'll ever be to famous.

You're supposed to use photos looking straight forward, no smile, no teeth, no hair, etc etc. This makes sense, but who has photos like this besides celebrities? Yagh, that's the equivalent of the Old Maid of photos. Here at work, I only had access to the photos below. This is why some of the blends are hazy or don't quite work.

What makes this interesting is that I'm going to let you guess who I'm blended with. Most are pretty obvious I think (I can't decide if I've been looking at them too long or the program really does default to the celebrity face), but some of the look-a-likes I have to shake my head twice and try to figure out who the photo most resembles. To make it fair for the slower readers, only guess 3 or 4... we like to give everyone a chance. Take it away...

If I had a Babysitters, Bridge, or Book Club, these ladies would be A-list:
913234
10341527

I am mildly intrigued by these woman and wouldn't mind trading places for awhile:
671838
192281

We did an excellent job rocking the celebrity gossip scene in 2005:
35 29 33

Ignore the eye-makeup and lipstick and these Hollywood Hunks and I could make beautiful babies:
1417530
26203728

Why is our skin tinged green? And the bleeding teeth are kind of creepy...

Which of our children would get beat up less at school:
A. 32 B. 31

Old Hollywood Glamour:
36 3

You can call me Apple:
11 24

And my absolute favorite....

So? Did you enjoy that? Do these even resemble me in the slightest? I've been staring at them the last few hours (thank you overtime pay), so I don't see it at all any more. Do you have a favorite? Do any freak you out beyond reason? Are you going to try this and post to your own blog (I hope so!)? Let the guessing begin....!

Wow Julie -- bringin' the heat!

For the record, Matt Damon does NOT exist in the boys. (or Jen Garner, Hugh Grant or Tom Cruise)

All other guesses have been correct.

Keep up the good work friends!

2. Carrie Underwood
3. JLo
4. Jessica Alba
5. Christina Aguilara
6. Leah Remini
7. Brittany Snow

Steph--AMAZING guesses. Seven of eight. Remember how I hate King of Queens? Would I really use Leah?!

Hint: the skin color should give it away as No.7 is BLACK.

I didn't know you hated King of Queens (so do I)....Could it be Tyra Banks?
