D is a dead ringer for virtually any jerk in any film. (And yes, before you say it, I know that he and Paul look really, really similar. No, they aren't twins. Anyway, we're talking about my brother-in-law here, people. Focus, please!)
Don't believe me? D looks like:
Johnny from The Karate Kid.
Don from Napoleon Dynamite (see, I told you I would get to it!)
Steff from Pretty in Pink
It's safe to say my brother-in-law corners the doppelganger market on blond, jerk-face villains.
It must be said that the real life D is a great father, a caring husband, whip-smart, and an outstanding long-distance runner. I love him.
But, if you're looking for somebody to play a blond jerk, drop me a line. I can find one for you toot sweet.
***Yesterday, thanks to LB, I met the milestone of 100 followers.
Thank you everybody. Thank you so, so much.
I've always wanted to stage dive, at least once in my life. I've never done it in real life, but I feel like through blogging, I've stepped off the stage, and you, dear reader, carry me along. Each voice, comment, joke, and insight lifts me up and helps me see the world more clearly. Your perspective has power.
It's important. You're important. And so, again, I thank you.
I've started a "button" page on my blog, so I'm slowly but surely adding your buttons. If I've missed you or you would like to be added, please drop me a line.
Also, let me talk about awards. I suck at them with a degree of suckitude that surpasses the laws of time and space.
I'm the black hole of blogging awards.
It doesn't mean I don't appreciate them. I do. But, I'll be honest...you should give them to people who have learned their manners and write thank-you notes in an appropriate fashion.
I believe that these amazing bloggers have, at some point, given me a blogging award. I'm truly grateful and humbly suggest that you check out their little corner of the Virtual World. If you didn't give me an award, you're awesome anyway. If you did give me an award and I missed you, then you're awesome and I am a Talking Turd (please let me know so I can make amends):
