Part of my weekend birthday celebration included an outing at Harrah's Casino in St. Louis. And I came out money ahead!
Anyway, I was waiting in a line to cash in some chips after doubling my money playing Three Card Poker.
People in line to cash in chips are always friendly. This one guy kept talking to me a lot and I was starting to feel a little uncomfortable. I knew he was leading up to something, then he finally said it. He told me I looked just like Dave Matthews!
I searched for some pics of Dave and he is like a chameleon--he looks different in all his photos. I did find this photo and I do see a resemblance. Sorry I don't have one of me to place beside Dave's for comparison.
It's hard to believe I would look so much like anyone, since I have the high forehead! I couldn't impersonate or tell people that I am Dave Matthews though, because he is much taller than me!
I took it as a compliment. It's better than the last time someone told me something like that. It was once when I needed a haircut and I had my hair parted on the side and a lady told me I looked like Pee Wee Herman! Needless to say, I won't part my hair anymore.
Those incidents made me think of a website I noticed late one night. At this My Heritage page you can upload a photo, and it will use face recognition technology to match you up with a celebrity! It's not perfect, but is something fun to do on a rainy day.
I haven't tried it yet with my own photos, but I did play around with photos of other people. My daughter was surprised to see it match a photo of her to one of Britney Spears. My friend Brad didn't mind being matched up to Ricky Martin either! A photo of my grandson at age 5, matched up with a photo of Josh Hartnett. That one was like age projection, which was neat to see. Try it out sometime. It's free!
They say everyone has a look-a-like, so who is yours?
