**IMPORTANT** : Special Viewer Poll

Okay, there's something I need to address right now. I was going to do this on Facebook but decided against it since what I really want to say may be perceived as rude and therefore shouldn't be said in front of my clients. So I'm going to say it here. What else is a blog for?

In case you haven't picked up on this, it's "Doppelganger Week" on Facebook. Basically what The Book is telling you to do is to replace your profile picture with a picture of a celebrity who you look like.

I'm sure you know what I'm going to say next. I mean, come on people. Let me spell it out for good measure.

You. Do. Not. Look. Like. Audrey. Hepburn.

You really, really don't. I don't understand what would prompt people to do this, honestly. How embarrassing for you that you think you look like Audrey Hepburn. Anne Hathaway. Julia Roberts. Tina Fey. I mean, have a little self-respect people. I'm honestly not trying to be mean when I say this, although I know it is mean. But let's be realistic - if you looked like a celebrity, you would probably be a celebrity. At the very least, we would not be friends.

Who would I even change my picture to? Who would you? I cannot think of ONE celebrity who I even mildly resemble, except possibly Keri Russell's HAIR. And yes, I'm saying that the entirety of me from the front basically looks like her hair from the back. That's absolutely all about her that even vaguely resembles me.

Don't get me wrong, I think I'm cute enough. This is not me being down on myself. This is me pointing out the obvious. I don't look like a celebrity, and neither do you. Get over yourself.

And so in honor of this RIDICULOUS week, I've narrowed down my doppelganger to four choices. Take your pick.

Are you trying to say that I don't look like Brad Pitt?

I think you should make commenting on ridiculous facebook memes a regular thing here.
