Celebrity Morphology in the Age of Deconstruction

Let me say that yes, I gave this entry its title solely because it sounded good.

No, wait. Not solely, no. It started tonight as I was using the DR Mower to “brush hog” (mow) the north pasture, in hopes that the walnut saplings would continue to grow and maybe even become a grove. As I did so, my mind achieved a certain Zen-like quality of clarity, and as the noise from the machine roared and my thoughts quieted, I heard a song from television last night, Soft Kitty. The song was from an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

I came inside after the chugging lawn beast and I were done devouring our half acre to find that Abby had a People Magazine, in which her coworkers had found a picture of actress Linda Gray and pointed out how much Abby looked like this celebrity. Normally I think of my wife as looking like supermodel Cheryl Tiegs, but they were right.

One of these is actress Linda Gray, who played Sue Ellen Ewing on "Dallas." The other is my wife Abby. See if you can tell which one is which!
