That is true, LoveItaly! But I think the hula skirt is Budman's day look . The cape and black mask is his nighttime look, LOL

I'll add a new twist:

How do YOU think others picture you?

I sometimes think certain posters (from the nuances or tone of the post) think I must look like Beverly Hillbillies 'Granny' in an antebellum dress!...not EXACTLY . Belle

A few years ago someone started a thread asking what they thought posters looked like. Very few were accurate. I was described as tall, loved bright colors and dripping in jewelry.
I prefer earth colors and sea glass colors for summer( as well as creams/beiges) My spouse is 6'almost 5" inches. We look like mutt and jeff

Funny what mental pictures we create. I think some posters think I am a backwoods hick named "Kelly"...but really Kelly is my last name and I am not even "from" Alabama (though I am lived here for over half my life)!

About a year ago a poster told me that she imagines me to look like Jerry Hall. I was flattered, but this is completely inaccurate. I look much more like Anna Kourikova. It's such a bother when people stop me on the street to ask if I'm Anna. Then they refuse to believe me when I say I'm not. So at this point, I just sign the autographs, pose for pictures, and let them believe they've met Anna. It seems to make them happy.

(To anyone who has met me at the Fodor's GTG's, please keep quiet, and Iíll return the favor someday)

After reading the SUV thread, I might have nightmares about fellow fodorites trying to run me down, LOL!

P_M, don't tell anyone, but I look a lot like Isabella Rossellini, especially when we both wear our hair very short But when my hair is long, like now, I look more like Catherine Zeta-Jones

This thread is a riot. Cigale, I remember that thread from a few years ago. I was pretty new then, so I was really fascinated by the mental picture people had of various posters, compared to how the poster actually described him/herself.

I had a dream-like experience this afternoon. The phone rang and a woman said "Ciao." I thought it was a wrong number, but it was my SIL calling from Tuscany to tell us what a great trip they were having. She was sitting on the terrace of their hotel in Chianti country, watching the sun set and sipping a Lemon Drop that her husband had just made with fresh picked lemons.

This is their first trip to Italy, and she said "You didn't tell me how gorgeous it is here!" Yeah, right. Of course I told her -- she just didn't listen. You have to go to know!
