We were reading Murphy's blog (warning: it has some HBO words) and he said that his parents played a game. The point of the game is to describe the kind of person or name a celebrity or TV/movie character that your dog or cat reminds you of, based on looks and/or personality.
Mom thought this would be a fun thing to do.
Mom says that Pulver would be the guy from The Green Mile.
Now at first I thought this wasn't too bad, until she explained that she didn't mean the actor..she meant the character. She said that Pulver is a little slow, but he is sweet, well meaning, and special. I don't think he's very sweet or well meaning when he is stealing my stuffies but he is a little slow.
Dad said that he would pick Leif Garret.
Mom says that Dad's only knowledge of Leif is from The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest so he shouldn't really pick him but that is who Dad picked.
Mom says that I would be Fran Drescher in The Nanny
She says I am loud, annoying, and in your face. I say I just have a big personality!
Dad's pick started out slightly better. He at least picked a dog. He said I would be a dog from the old Spike and Chester cartoons.
This wouldn't have been bad but he didn't pick the big dog. No! He picked the small twitchy, jumpy, annoying dog! I couldn't believe it. He says I am very tweaker-ish and that was the first thing he thought of.
I am surprised that they didn't pick someone more elegant, beautiful, and refined like this lady from Mom's favorite movie.
I don't think I'm going to let Mom and Dad play these kind of games anymore!
