My celebrity look alikes.

I happened to stumble upon this website which, among other things helps you find your celebrity look alikes.
Out of curiosity I checked out myself. I am like that, curious ! I always wanted to look like. Halle Berry. Don't ask me why! Maybe its that famous cat suit. Can't resist cats.

It was quite simple actually. One thing I have realized about web. Everything is always very simple. A couple of clicks of buttons is all you need to order something or accidentally send a spam mail to the whole world.

Men roaming the streets, in high spirits. You can’t hold a man responsible for what he does in the heat of the moment. So he lost his head! She shouldn’t have stepped out of the house.She- Lost his head! Oh go and boil your head! Don’t preach me forgiveness.How the HELL can you defend that man! He could have remembered who he was! Who she was! He- Listen! All that is over and done with. She said she had forgiven him. If She can, why can’t you ?She- How can I forget her standing there on the road.. surrounded by THEM ....
