Why God gave us mothers

13 02 2005

I just read the following e-mail from my mom:

“Today Dad and I went to see the new Will Smith movie, Hitch, and the model that looks like you had a starring role as an heiress. Her name is Amber Valletta, and she is a super-model. I looked her up on the internet, and the picture I sent you was not included in her photos, but Jim agrees that it’s the same person. She looked like you in the movie too. (She looks good!)”

A long time ago I posted THIS STORY in my LJ about my mom sending me a photo she clipped from The New Yorker. She attached a note reading, “When did you pose for this?” Or something to that effect. Anyway, looks like I’m in a movie now, too.

Don’t worry, people. I’m not delusional. I know I don’t look like Amber Valletta.

But isn’t it sweet that my mom thinks so? :o)

Welp, I looked up Amber Valletta on the IMDB, and comparing photos with your X-mas letter from a couple of years back, I gotta go with your Mom on this one. You do look like her, SuperModel. 🙂 Just fess up!

Allen, aren’t you the sweetie. Thanks. 🙂

Did you get this year’s Christmas letter? You were in the middle of moving at the time. I hope it caught up with you.

You’re batting a thousand on the compliments lately, Sparky. Are you buttering me up for something? 😉

Sweet? Nah, I just call ’em like I see ’em. And yes! Actually I did get the Christmas Letter, thank you. I meant to tell you I’d received it, but with the move and all, it must have slipped my mind. Sorry ’bout that.

Thank you for sharing a glimpse of life around the ellezymn household. 🙂

Thanks, Katie. I’ll take the “looks like the cousin of” label any day. And about fashion sense — given the options of wearing/not wearing clothes, I’ve found that the wearing works best for me in most situations.

Thanks also for reading the other post. I’m glad you liked it. Wouldn’t you love to know the original motivation behind selecting Piggly Wiggly as a store name? I think the marketing team may have had a few too many that day.

Happy Valentine’s Day. ♥

piggly wiggly and stardom

In college, our dorm was just blocks from, yes, a Piggly Wiggly. We called it THE PIG.

And, crazy lady, I agree, you’re cuter than any actress out there.

Aw, thanks. You’re too kind. Even though I know I don’t deserve it, I love it when people call me “crazy lady.”
