So, the other day I stumbled upon a conversation two co-workers were having about celebrity lookalikes. And without hesitation, one of them looked at me and said, "Christina Applegate!" The other instantly agreed.

This was a first for me. And I'm not going to lie (Sidenote: What am I trying to do when I say this? Differentiate between all the other times when I falsify everything that comes out of my mouth? I have issues.), I was pleased. I mean, come on, Christina Applegate?

I think she's gorgeous. Wait. Did I just call myself gorgeous? How does this work? Am I allowed to agree that my celeb lookalike is pretty, or is that just total narcissism? I'M UNCLEAR ABOUT THE RULES HERE, PEOPLE. But it seems really rude to insult Christina just to make myself appear gracious.

No one ever accused me of not making sacrifices.

Then I started thinking about the day that Amy's bestseller is made into a movie. My friends and I have spent many a night sitting around drinking wine and discussing not really given much thought to which celebrities will play us in the blockbuster, but there are some obvious standouts: Sandra Bullock (Amy), Charlize Theron (Erin), Blake Shelton (Todd). (Just kidding, Vanilla Kitten!) (No I'm not, everyone else.) And Rebecca Romijn will play me. Not because we so much look alike, but because, "She's tall! And blonde!" says Amy. Hey, don't get me wrong. Rebecca is lovely. But after the Christina revelation, well, see for yourself.

I mean, right? This is working for me. Oh, and here's my casual look, you know, for running errands in Beverly Hills and such.

And that night I drifted off to sleep with glamorous images of me-as-Christina Applegate dancing in my head.

Until 3 a.m. when these not-glamorous images of me-as-Christina Applegate rudely cut in on my red carpet waltz.

OMG, you guys, this one? I've totally made that face before!

Am I "Married … With Children" Christina Applegate? SOMEONE TELL ME.

I am fully on board with this casting decision. She and Sandra would definitely be friends. (Love the hilarious, early photos of Christina. No, you do not look like that!)

I would say your more of an Anchorman Christina or even a Rachel's sister on FRIENDS kind of Christina ;-)

Thank you girls!
Lynlee, I'm a fan of both! Now that's what I'm talking about. Ha!
