Who do I look like?

I saw this on someone else's blog and decided to check it out. You enter your photo and by some algarithm the site chooses a bunch of celebrities with whom you share many facial features. Goofy, and, need I say very disconcerting, to learn that my closest match is Colin Powell?!

The thing is, I wasn't sure I was even going to use this on my blog, but to my chagrin, when I entered my blog address on the My Heritage site, it immediately published to my blog. I very quickly edited it to "draft" and it disappeared—or so I thought! I learned today that if you see my blog through Google Reader you see that original post.

But back to the look alike thing. Oddly enough, as I look at those pictures, the one that I think bears the closest resemblance is Sean Astin. When I was a teenager I was occasionally told that I looked like his mother, Patty Duke. And, should I be concerned that my two closest matches are both men? And those others—Meryl Streep?—I don't think so!

Anyway, now I am curious. If you read this on Google Reader, are you seeing this revised edition? And if so, do you still see the original post?

  1. I'm reading you through the RSS feed in my Safari browser and I only get the revised post. I don't think you look like a man at all, although perhaps you and Colin have similar facial shapes. Now Meryl -- she's mine.

  2. It looks like it's all based on facial shape, so I think you are safe from concerns. I don't see why Meryl was tossed in either.

  5. Which one is Sean Austin? I only know Colin and Meryl. Your 12X12 picture covers part of the two end pictures.

  6. I read it on Google reader and since I saw all the pics I assume it was the original post. I think you look like you.

  7. I saw just the revised post..if you get to a post fast enough before the rss feed process gets ahold of it, you can keep it out of Google Reader...so you were quick enough!I have seen several variants of a post if the poster waited to modify...

  9. I'm now seeing only your revised version which seems to have replaced the one that was posted for you.

  10. The pictures seemed to erase your entire right hand sidebar. Can you get rid of the pictures and restore your links?

  11. How did you get all of the photos in one place? when I did it it only shows one at a time. The one I liked best was Michelle Pfieffer. My only male match was Bing Crosby!
