He looka like a man

Miz Snow, from MadTV. gawd, I miss her.

Anyhoo. I checked out this site at my heritage dot com. Of course, being a former DC-ite, I'm frightened of any organization with the world "heritage" in it (see this). But I still thought it was interesting (although a bit scary) to check out their "facial recognition technology", wherein you upload a picture, and they match it to celebrities. Being the subversive I am, I knew I couldn't submit a picture of ME, so I uploaded a beautiful picture of the monkeygurrl (which I would *love* to share with you, but her father emailed to me as a bitmap, and for some reason, blogger won't accept it! THE NERVE!!!.)

Anyway, the first couple o' matches were okay -

A young Shirley Temple,


and a young Natalie Wood.

[Side note - one time a woman on an elevator told me I reminded her of a young Natalie Wood. I don't normally go that way, but I really wanted to kiss her. Hard.]

But then they came up with this:
HOWARD DEAN

John Howard

and

WERNER HERZOG?!?!?!

WHAT THE FUG?!?!!

My most beautiful, gorgeous, wonderful babygurl looka like a MAN?!?!?!

Then they tried to make up by giving me my coworker, but it was too little, too late.

Okay, MyHeritage. You're no Sew Fast So Sleazy, but SCREW YOU.

Sheeesh.

maybe they were just going by the smile or something.

the kid came from you and a man so it's not untrue that she might have a man's facial characteristics...

but she's way cuter than those toads anyway. beyonce included.

:) You are too kind. Actually, she does have some pretty serious eyebrows.

Your daughter is indeed adorable!

If you want your picture to be saved as a differnt type (ie bitmap to jpg) simply open it in your paint program and click save as. Save it as a jpg. Problem solved!
