Is She I?

As I previously mentioned, over the holidays Dub and I went to Disneyland and California Adventure. I had been hearing lore that there was a picture of a girl that looked like me at The Tower of Terror in the lobby. And so that particular attraction was definitely on the must-do list for the visit.

After having gotten a FastPass (my testimony includes a portion devoted to the FastPass), we walked in the lobby pretty much right away. There she was. California Adventure royalty me. Except, I wasn't sure I saw me in her or her in me. Naturally, Dub and I proceeded to take pictures of her. We'll call her from now on Princess in California Adventure's Tower of Terror or "Princess CATT" for short. Dub also made comments (somewhat loudly) about how I was the model for the painting. And then we took an informal poll from the people with whom we were standing to see if we looked like each other. People seemed mostly to agree with it. But, I still doubt.

By the way, from the people standing in line, we met these two people from Portland, I think, and they gave us their Soarin' Over California FastPasses. This is a shout out to them. Thank you very much. ... umm... how were you related to each other?

Anyway, I am now going to poll you, the 20-something people who occasionally check my blog. Actually, I think I'm polling a smaller number of you who know what I look like. Does Princess CATT look like Cardine? You decide:

I can kind of see a resemblance.

I would have to say that totally looks like you!

I can see the resemblance especially in the eyes. I've only seen you a couple of times but it is a good likeness from what I can recollect. That is pretty cool and what a good way to meet people.

She does look eerily like you, especially the eyes and eyebrows. I think the biggest difference is your face is slimmer and I've never seen you wear your hair like that.

Yes, definitely. You and she are extremely similar, except you don't show so much shoulder!

Cardine said...

Well, we're mostly talking face here. Because I think her waist is skinnier than mine, but her arms are much chubbier than the frail sticks I have that are supposed to be appendages.

Thanks for the comments, even the anonymous and deleted ones! (They are still e-mailed to me.)

The similarities are perhaps in the jawline, and maybe the eyes. but it doesn't look THAT much like you.

If you two were standing next to each other in public (e.g. at Disneyland), people would for sure ask if you were sisters. They might even ask if you're twins. You look a lot more like her than you look like me! Now my question is - do you look more like Princess CATT or like sister Cash?

Indy said...

It does look like you, maybe you should start dressing like royalty.

compulsive writer said...

I love that dub told people you were the model for the picture.

Cash said...

Horker P. Slappy and I feel vindicated! It's been 2.5 years since we saw your portrait hanging in the Tower of Terror and you finally got to see it! Now do you believe us? I think the girl in the portrait looks more like you than I do, and that's saying something since people used to think we were the same person!

Cardine. I am going to have to say that Princess CATT doesn't look like you. Not even like your family. She is pretty, and so are you. But... no. Maybe if I was there in person and could look at different angles.

I think it is the eyebrows. She has your eyebrows.

I think you really were the model. Find out who the artist is. That might be the real answer to your fortune cookie.

Cardine said...

HTO!!! HI! Thanks for commenting. Maybe Tearese was the artist...
