To watch television with Bossy is an exercise in patience:
You know how some people have that strain of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder where they think they unwittingly killed someone with their car so they keep driving back to check?
Well it’s just like that with Bossy, except in her case it’s an obsessive compulsive need to figure out who everyone looks like, which she then shouts to the room at large. Never does this disease rage more out of control than when Bossy is watching TV.
Take Downton Abbey. Please. This PBS miniseries shall serve as an example of what it’s like to sit down in front of a television with Bossy watching the privileged, haughty, manor house elite and the family they serve.
Most of the time the lookalikes are fairly easy to identify:
But sometimes the lookalike takes Bossy a while to figure out, and in the meantime she loses the plot thread, along with her mind:
Sometimes Bossy references people no one knows:
And occasionally the lookalike requires more than an acceptable amount of imagination and faith:

Downton Abbey rocks my house every week and the netflix series hummed just before the new season began. Thank you, Bossy-blogger-woman, for your cue cards to help me keep those lovely folks straight in my befuddled mind.
Happy 2013; hope most of it goes the right way and what doesn’t can be worked thru with compassion and fairness.

haughty, manor house elite and the family they serve.
Ain’t it the truth! Getting ready for DA right now.

I love the way your mind works!

I play this game a lot except it is who they would have been in college – the partier, the studier, etc

I play this, too. Well, it’s my husband who says, “holy crap she looks just like Michele Pfeiffer!” And it’s, like, an Asian man. He’s not the greatest with facial recognition.

I used to match people on television to their counterpart animals. Entertained myself for a long time that way.
Watched the season opener for DA. All I covet is the library. My battered paperbacks and some good paperbacks and hard covers would love to live in a library like that.
Bossy’s guidance is most enlightening as usual 🙂

I’ve just been amazed at how many shows all the cast of Downton Abbey have been in. I’ve seen “Mary” on a few shows, and “Carson” was on something the other night. 🙂

I loves me some Bossy.

When I got to the picture of Grandmama, and scrolled down to her lookalike, I laughed myself silly. Thanks for making my day, Miss Bossy!

Hilarious. I’ve been looking at funny female blogs for the past 10 minutes and this is the first one I’ve laughed at. Gracias!

Thank you, I was trying to pin down that last one.

That Governor Ridge resemblance is beyond uncanny. Do I smell a conspiracy?!?!

Toss in a Barbie doll somewhere in the mix, for good measure, or not…this is Classic Bossy. Thank you.
