your movie, starring ______

Oops. Kind of forgot about you this week, blog. Well, not “forgot” as much I was just a little busy for you.

Life has been crazy lately. Not in a bad way, but just in the way that the weeks and months have been flying by faster than I expect them to, sort of blending in to one another. It’s October 8 already? Really?? Is this just what starts to happen when you’re 30?

The other day, I managed to take a break from work and steal away some time to go see The Social Network. The movie was awesome, and watching Jesse Eisenberg play Mark Zuckerberg got me thinking about who would play me in the movie version of my life. Now, I’m certainly not saying that my life is exciting enough to be made into a movie (not a good movie, at least), but it’s fun to hypothesize. The person I’d want playing me would be this lovely lady.

Anne Hathaway. Brown hair, large-ish brown eyes, late twenties, good at playing a slightly socially awkward character. I think she’d be a good “me” :)

If there were a movie about your life, who would you want to play the part of you?


  1. Yes, that happens once you turn 30. ;)

    I think Anne Hathaway is a good choice for you! And I’ll go with Amy Adams for me…?

  2. I LOVE her! She is so classy in that awkward sort of way. I would choose her to play me as well. Or, I could also see that quirky Zooey Deschanel :) with a dash, of brunette Mandy Moore. You know, if I was 20 pounds lighter plus about 6 inches taller :)

  3. Definitely a good match! I loved Social Network too. And…I can’t answer this question. Okay, maybe Tina Fey? Only because I get that a lot, but I don’t see it. Then again, our age is off.

  4. Oooh I totally see Anne Hathaway as your look-alike! I wish I had an awesome actress lookalike…

  5. ha! i selected her too when facebook was running the doppelganger bandwagon. i hear i’m her lookalike often! so funny!
