Note: This is the third time I am re-publishing this so-so post. I’m not this anal in real life. The problem with the post, as you will see, is that the joke is based on me getting an email from HOLLY Newberry, when in reality, I received an email from a reader named HOLLIE Newberry. Time for new glasses.
OK, here is the earlier post:
Once upon a time, people said I looked like John Lennon. Later, I was mistaken for Bill Gates. (you can read my depressingly awful first attempt at a “poem” about this subject here)
Last year, in IHOP, I was thought to be the actor who played Kirk from “The Gilmore Girls.” (I know the show just ended. What happened to Kirk anyway?)
Today I received an email:
I’m a (somewhat) loyal reader of Citizen of the Month. Being the brave man you are, you post pictures of your self for all the world to see. While watching a mini-marathon of Shear Genius, and drinking vodka after 4 shots of novocaine and some happy gas at the dentist, I noticed that you look like the long lost brother of one of the contestants. I can’t remember his name, but I know he left the show early for his doing of horrible hair. Here he is:
Did I tell you or what?
I scratched my head for a few minutes, wondering if this was a legitimate email. Other than us both wearing glasses, I don’t think I look anything like him. His name is “Jim” and he was eliminated from Bravo’s hair-styling reality show, Sheer Genius.
How do I know that information? Because I looked it up on Google.
I also Googled the email author, Hollie Newberry, and came up with this:
(Men, if you do a search, you will find much much better photos of Hollie, who is apparently a famous British cheerleader)
Now, the emailer might not be THIS “Hollie,” but if she is, “Yes, I am Jim of Shear Genius.”
Note: So, bascially, the whole post was based on a spelling error. The email was from HOLLIE, not HOLLY, and I’m sure Hollie now hates me and will never read my blog again. There was some more stuff to this post, but I deleted it. Can I now move on to something new?
Have a great weekend!
