doppelganger

Since I started watching The Vampire Diaries not only have I been fascinated with the plot, but I've also been fascinated with the term "doppelganger." A German word in origin, the term is defined as a "double of a living person, typically representing evil or misfortune. In modern vernacular, the word has come to refer to any double or look-alike of a person."
So because I like to think about things like this, I thought - what would it be like if I had a doppelganger more like Elena's doppelganger Katherine in The Vampire Diaries? Someone who's bad but pulls their stuff together? Of course I wouldn't want to have a doppelganger like that, but it's fun to think of it, right? Fun to think of your life as a TV show or novel? Yeah sometimes I like to think about fun things like this and let my mind wander into imagination land.
All my life I've been considered a goody tushu. Sure - I'll take that as a compliment, but considering I never lived that phrase down in high school and college, sometimes a girl likes to have some fun and wish she had a doppelganger, aka an alter ego of sorts, right? And in my case...I think it would be fun to have a doppelganger who is polar opposite of me, someone who isn't labeled as a goody tushu.

So I tried Googling doppelganger to find a look alike for me and with Google's new search tricks it came up with a post from Michelle from The Vintage Apple called Doppelganger. The cool thing is that she mentioned a site that she found her celebrity doppelganger from and it's called MyHeritage.com.

So I just hopped on there, excited to figure out my celebrity doppelganger is. Will she have a little bit of a mean streak, I wondered? Will she be just a little bit more dangerous and exciting? (Not that I'm not exciting, I just thought my doppelganger should be more...well, more opposite of me.)
I was hoping for someone like Kate Beckingsdale from Van Helsing. But boy I was wrong. Because...guess who came up as my celebrity doppelganger?!?! You're going to laugh because I did...

It's Princess Grace. Seems I just can't get away from the goody tushu phrase. Oh brother.

But I do have to say it was flattering coming up looking like Grace Kelly. She is gorgeous and I love everything about her. Which reminds me, I'd like to read a book on her sometime.

Anyway, in regard to cool doppelgangers, here are a few pictures that I wanted to share:

Elena's doppelganger Katherine.

This is besides the point, but are you team Stefan
or Damon for the upcoming season finale
of season 3 of TVD? I'm team Stefan all of the way
and I'm so glad he's in love with Elena as opposed
to her evil counterpart, aka doppelganger Katherine.

I guess there's one good reason why I'm a good
doppelganger (well, if I had one).
I get a good guy aka my BK. ;)

And yes...I know I rambled on this post.
Sorry if it didn't make sense.
I just wanted to have a little bit of fun.

  1. I'm not surprised at all you got Grace Kelly. There is a resemblance between you two. Both beautiful blondes with lovely smiles and classy sense of style. ;)
