A customer once told me that I looked like ” a pretty Tracey Ullman”. I mean, she’s a great comedian- but I was thinking – which character of hers are you thinking of?

allyfally:  Since I was about 14 people randomly compliment me on my walk. Apparently, I have a poised/refined walk. It makes no sense to me because I put one foot in front of the other like everyone else in the world. I also get a compliment on my “complexion” all the time. I’m not sure what that even means but I find it self contained to ask someone to explain a compliment.

allyfally:  Someone once told me I look like a pre-Raphaelite painting, I didn’t know what that meant at the time but when I googled pre-raphaelite paintings I was quite flattered

People have told me I look like the main girl from Napolean Dynamite. This is weird because I’m not even white. Also, kind of insulting because from my own perspective of beauty, I don’t find that a compliment.

I have a really, really round butt and I get family/friends/coworkers [females] talking about it. My favorite is when they say, “it’s so big, but in a good way”.

Um.. thanks.

Hmm I can only think of when I was heading to my internship, getting out of my car, and one of my co-workers just asked me if I dyed my hair, I didn’t, then she said that I had nice shiny hair… It was just so random but nice! and some friend told me she thought I looked like Tina Fey but I’m not sure if it was just a random observation or a compliment… ? The way she said it, it wasn’t really clear lol…

GUYS would say they liked my eyebrows. So random. One time a guy said it across the classroom, which made everyone look at me. Not good for the shy me haha!

About 4 or 5 years ago I was told by a work colleague who had been promoted to a new department in my building that she’d been warned I was, and I quote…  “notoriously unfriendly” but she was so happy to find “that’s simply untrue”. 

Wow, thanks love! Plus, my sister just recently forwarded me a tongue in cheek article about the condition know as Resting Bitch Face telling me I’m a sufferer. I did laugh at that though. I’m popular.

A random customer at work told me I had the “sexiest radio voice.” I told him I had laryngitis. He proceeded to ask if I smoked and told me I should apply to a nightime radio station. I again told him I was SICK, but he didn’t seem to get it.

I also had a guy tell me that if he ever met a woman with hair naturally the colour of mine, he would marry her. Somewhat horrified, I decided not to tell him that I did not colour my hair.

Ew, the sex phone hotline comment about a child-like voice is rather twisted, isn’t it?

My hair is just a deep auburn, showing more red in the sun. I’ve never found it to be particularly unusual.
