Like.Wow...

I almost forgot!

After walking to college one morning with Jack, he asked me if I ever watched Skins and knew who Cassie was. I replied no, and he said I looked freakishly like the character. I put it out of my mind because it wasn't relevant. That was until...the last month people have been randomly coming up to me and asking if I watch a programme called Skins. I haven't. And then they look sheepish but then say I look like one of the characters called 'Cassie'. Now I have had this comparision made be complete strangers in the following places:

The Park in Town
Various Ladies Tolilets in Town
The Whitehouse in Town
In TopShop changing rooms
In Warehouse Changing Rooms
At The Airport

I've also been walking down the street and in town completely bewildered as a group (I'd guess) 15 and 16 year olds start shouting Cassie and try to get me to go over to them!

When I mentioned this to some friends from college they all agreed passionatly, which was weird. One of them stated that they had thought that since they started watching the programme. Now, I was a bit worried because when I googled the show and the character out of curiosity I found out she's a pill popping, anorexic with mental problems. I've been assure that I only look like her though. Apparently we have a similar dress sense.

Now, this strikes me as odd because I've never watched the programme. Apparently I talk like her to and am as dreamy and ditzy. 

Now I think, yeah, I can see some kind of resemblance but not so much as to recieve this kind of response. So please, dear readers/friends/fans/stalkers/haters, give me your opinions!



Ta to Thom who chose the photos and made the above thingy. I was too picky and adamant I don't have any photos to confirm what people say.

I am convinced the the costume designer saw me strolling down the street one day and stole my style and plonked it on the character. Absolutely certain.

Something I find amusing is that apparently I look like Cassie when blonde, but when I have dark brown hair people compare me to Anne Hathaway, which is odd because I don't think they look alike - aside from their rather large smiles.

Although according to the girls at my mum's work my dress sense reminds them of Peaches Gedolf...ha...I'll take the Cassie comparisson any day blud! I am nothing like Peaches Gedolf taaaaaaa!

Anywho...yar, insights would be great ta =]

You do look similar.

I'm going to pretend I have a unique dress sense if that's cool =]

I don't mind really. I'm busy Wednesday but otherwise, at the moment, I'm free.

Yeah I'm fine thanks, you?

There is a strong similarity there - you're different around the eyes though. Yours are prettier.

I have come to the conclusion.
I have come to the conclusion of why people are constantly making this comparison about you and Cassie. They are so astounded by your beauty and persona that they need something, just something, some un-embarrassing reason to approach you. It also sets up the conversation to talk about your every point of attraction, because naturally people will make the comparison, but make the observation of superior difference between them comparisons.

I could leave this conclusion how it is, because then there is still some compliments on my part to you. Or I could continue to de-construct the reoccurring comparison. I'm feeling nice and will leave it.
