Last night I went out with a friend and met up with some of his friends. We were talking about doppelgangers, and I looked at one of his friends and immediately said, “you look like the guy with glasses on Are You Afraid of the Dark?”
I was amused by that spontaneous statement for several reasons.
First of all, I don’t even know where it came from because I haven’t thought of that show or any of it’s Mason for correcting me) counterparts in years. I loved it though. Friday nights were my favorite and I watched until well past the normal age for watching Nickelodeon.(I totally had this wrong and referred to it as Nick at Night, thanks to
I was also an avid reader of Goosebumps and later Fear Street, and played Are You Afraid of the Dark with my friends in the woods by my grandparents house at night. I like to be scared. I guess this is why I grew up to love horror movies. It’s also why I want to go on a ghost tour in Baltimore, although no one wants to go with me.
The statement was also funny because I was so spot on, the guy did look exactly like the actor, whose name is apparently Ross Hull.
I don’t have a picture of the actual person to prove my spot onness, but trust me. Maybe I should be a professional doppleganger spotter? There was also a Seth Rogen, a Heidi Montag, a Hugh Laurie and a Ben Affleck in attendance.
Sadly, I don’t really have a doppleganger. I’ve been told I look like several people, but nothing very regularly. I’ve also never had a nickname. Clearly, I’m deprived.
I’m also deprived of sleep. Happy hours for me never seem to end after an hour. I didn’t get to sleep until way past my bedtime (after another very upsetting development in the moving company from hell drama).
I did discover a pretty decent Wednesday night happy hour option at Rock Bottom Brewery – $1.50 beers until 9 p.m. I also had a veggie burger and coleslaw there that did me quite right. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a good veggie burger.
The night ended with PBR cans and Ms. Pac-Man until I turned into a pumpkin and had to metro home.
Did you ever watch Are You Afraid of the Dark or SNICK?
Do you like to be scared?
Who’s your doppleganger?
