Awhile back I was reading this article online about celebrities and their wax figure doppelgängers. I chose these celebrities in particular because I though their wax figures looked eerily identical. What do you think? Don’t be fooled by backgrounds! Can you tell which is which?

How to Be Your Own Best Friend by Mildred Newman & Bernard Berkowitz © 1984
Synopsis:In this unique, bestselling question-and- answer guide to self-love and acceptance, two practicing psychologists (who are also married to one another) reveal the secret of pursuing happiness, by revealing to ourselves what we think we are striving for, and what it is that keeps us from achieving our goals.
Comments: I know, I know. I said I was going to start steering clear of the “self-help” books, but this one caught my eye recently at the thrift store. Besides, it’s SUCH a quick read (less than 100 pages), that I thought “What’ve I got to lose?” Besides, even though I realize it’s close to impossible, it’d be nice to be able to be my own best friend and not worry so much about getting emotionally attached to other people. I realize that makes for a lonely existence, but befriending people inevitably leads to them leaving at some point, and that’s just miserable.
Anyway, the book was a quick read and did contain some interesting perspectives on how we think and the choices we make. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get to know themselves a little better and what it is they want out of their life.

Sarah Speaking of Grace Jones’ body, I’ll never forget the time she was on Johnny Carson and was wearing a one piece metal corset (complete with breasts). It was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. Johnny commented on it, and she took it off (she was wearing a jacket) and gave it to him. SO cool! I’d KILL to have some Grace Jones memorabilia! Continue reading
