Best of the Web: Look-a-Likes

I had an acute laughing attack yesterday when I found this website about look-a-likes.  I couldn't breathe.  I thought I was going to fall out of my chair.  Here are some of my favorites, enjoy!  I liked 'em so much I had to award prizes:

Most Disturbing

Truest Likeness

Best Eyes

Poor Eli Wood,  I can't give this one an award, but geez..LOOK!

The Just-Add-Hair Award

"Missing Link" Award
also "Lost in Time"
(Is this the face of our past or our future?)

Best Personality and Third Place

Most Noble, and 2nd Place

Most Likely to Ruin Your Appetite and First Place!

AND THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER!  EAT that sub, Jack Nickolson!

Baby Cuisine

Danielle is starting to eat human foods.  She is always very eager to try a new one, but always quite shocked at the different textures.  So far she's had sweet potates (not from a jar), rice, oatmeal cereal, smashed peas, applesauce,  Joey REALLY wants to feed her a radish because that is currently his favorite.  I'll have to be very watchful!  When Adam was only 2 months old I caught Joey stuffing pieces of steak into his mouth...

In any case, she doesn't appear to be lacking in nourishment.

Self Portrait

Feeling a bit down these days...

It is normal, but not pleasant, for me to feel this way when I have a 6 month old.
Anytime you can cry over things like dishes in the sink, it is appropriate to blame hormones.  It's temporary, and part of the price of having a whole new kid.

James has a kind face, don't you think?
Whoever said that laughter is the best medicine has never been hugged by this guy.

The Christmas Present

How was your Christmas?  I hope you felt like this on Christmas morning:

(Sam 12/25/09)

I know I sure did. 
Santa brought me the best toy EVER!  A DSLR camera--a Nikon d3000, to be exact.

*Sigh* This is the camera I knew in the pre-existence.  It was love at first sight.  THIS is a camera that will command respect at little league soccer games.  THIS is a camera that will translate my baby's ethereal loveliness into a true likeness that all can appreciate. 
THIS is a camera that will show me at all times in a lovely and photogenic light, right?

(The first picture I ever took with it, with him, with Charles.  Charles the camera.) 
EW!  And when I saw how crappy I looked, I felt like this:

  (Adam being ALL BAD in his new policeman costume--happy birthday little one!)

But I immediately launched into taking about 300 pictures that have little to zero relevance, like this:

(A Christmas Bow, I like the color.)

and this:

(the staples in my mom's head from a recent injury--STAY OFF THOSE LADDERS, MOM!  I missed the focus a little, but still!  My old camera would never have shown this detail.)

And this cow that is soon to be hamburgers:

(Tardy, may she rest in pieces--in my parents' freezer.)

And I even tested its limits by taking lots of pictures of my Mom's pictures--straight out of the photo albums.

(My mom as a baby.  Not too bad for a picture of a picture!  Isn't she cute?)

So...nothing is certain but death and taxes, but it also seems quite likely that you shall all be subjected to a lot of extremely amateur photography by a certain madwoman photographer in the near future.  Merry Christmas.
