Has this ever happened to you?

*  I'm helping my teacher, watching over her three year old grandniece while she tends to the baby.  The three year old (who I've involuntarily started referring to as the Munchkin) has a fascination with My Little Pony, the current series running on The Hub.  She's a lot more attentive when someone is watching with her, and since I 1) like cartoons and 2) can handle weapons-grade cute, I opted to watch with her.  This freed up my teacher, who at one point, poked her head in and commented that the character of Twilight reminds her of me, with her focus on getting things done and her occasional frustration with delays and lack of focus.  Oooooookay....

* A few of my friends have said they get extra enjoyment out of watching V For Vendetta.  They say they see so much of me in the character of V, they sometimes imagine it's me behind the mask (my teacher has said this, too, which means they're right).  Hey, it's not only a classic character, but it beats being compared to a My Little Pony.  No offense, teach....

So, has anyone else ever been told that some character in pop culture reminds someone of them?  Who was it and why?  You know, if there is any explanation (the Munchkin once called me a snowman.  No.  Fucking.  Clue.  Why).

And what the hell,  I might as well ask...are there any pop culture characters you think about and go, "That is so Peter?"

Sadly (or not so), if I have been compared to a pop culture icon, I've forgotten about it.

And as for you. For some reason you remind me of Brian Griffin (Family Guy), minus the atheism, and alcoholism parts. Don't ask why either, and don't feel so bad. He happens to be one of favorite characters on that show.

I don't feel bad about being compared to Brian. In fact, when I was watching Family Guy, he was my favorite character. Maybe because he was the voice of reason, or maybe just his nature made him feel like he had no true place in the world. Either way, I can see that.

Oh, whew! I remember reading one of your posts in which you said that you liked the earlier Brian better than the later Brian.

It also just came to mind another character (not sure if he'd be a pop-culture icon, likely not.) you remind me of. Joseph Schreiber from Silent Hill 4. Always writing these long, in depth entries.

Granted, he did become trapped in his apartment, and eventually went insane...

As far as Brian, I figured you were just trying to go with something that reminded you of me, you weren't trying to insult me, so please don't worry about that.

As for the Silent Hill thing -- I've seen the future. It's very Kafka. ;-)

When I was younger - and skinnier - I was often compared to Columbia from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I'm bubbly like her and a total fangirl. :)

And this probably won't make any sense to you, but you remind me of Dr. Indiana Jones. You're just as smart and have the same sharp wit. And of course, I can see you standing up for the little guy when it's needed. ♥

You have no idea how much I appreciate being compared to intelligent characters (Twilight in MLP is depicted as an avid reader, and, in fact, lives in the library).

I love the Indiana Jones thought. I have to ask -- did you think of that before I put up the pic of me in my fedora or after?

OMGOSH! I had completely forgotten about the fedora picture!I wonder if the Indiana Jones thing sort of wormed its way into my subconscious.

Still, it fits. :)
