Since today is Elvira and I's birthday, I'm telling my favorite role model--Happy Birthday! (not me, Elvira!) It's also Andrea's birthday, a fantastic blogger with the world's best penchant for ghost stories.
I never really looked into Elvira's background. I just remember as a teen watching her host horror movies and having a blast making light of the movies. She didn't particularly become a focus over my years or come across my mind except at Halloween when she came back on TV for the season in the forefront. Hey, I'm not a dude, the obvious reasons one loves Elvira never impressed me. But, I stood back and studied her a while back and realized a few things about the fantastic horror gal--we have a helluva lot in common that I never knew!
We share the same birthday--September 17th. Holy fuck! What are the chances?? She loves to make fun of the very genre she loves. You might note that I have a tendency to mock the TV ghost hunting shows. I can't help it. I can't take them seriously. They're just so awful! We're both redheads--didn't know that! She's 5'7", I'm 5'8". She admired Ann Margaret. I did too! She was a dancer. I danced. Both vegetarian.
There might be a "couple" other assets we share...
I guess this explains why I feel a strange connection with her whenever she's on TV and I see her. I think, "I know this gal!" She sometimes even says what I'm thinking in the same way I'd say it and that's crazy creepy.
Yes, we might have quite a lot in common, except I look miserable in black and she looks awesome.
Well, a girl's gotta have a role model!
