I met a truly lovely and slightly tipsy old man on the tube this afternoon. He told me I looked like Meryl Streep. I was unbelievably flattered (more like unbelieving and flattered) and left the station with a smile on my face.

Then, by the strangest of coincidences, I was sorting through some pictures on my laptop tonight, trying to clear some space on my alarmingly full hard drive and stumbled across this picture (circa 2004):

Looks like he was right, right?

Gotta love those beer goggles...

*Merriam Webster defines coincidence thusly: the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection. Not quite as cool as a syzygy, as only two events need occur, but still cool enough for this blog. In fact, I think I might make coinkidink another new feature that I promptly stop featuring...
