Am I Elaine Benes?

Over this past summer (May 2010-August 2010) my good friends Carolyn Slebodnik and Joey Marulli made the observation that I am very similar to Elaine Benes, 1/4 of the great cast ensemble of Seinfeld. The similarities in personality were mind blowing and I chose to not take any offense to this comparison at all. I love Seinfeld. I love Elaine.

Fast forward to last night: December 18th 2010 - my friend Nicole, who has no relation to Carolyn or Joey, asked me (and I quote) "Has anyone ever compared you to Elaine from Seinfeld?" then proceeded to show me this clip in which she noticed how similar we are.

Here are some similarities:
-Loud laugh
-judgmental inner monologue
-absurd conclusions
-obscure conclusions
-hand gestures
-laughing at inappropriate moments
-giving advice
-doing whatever it takes to get what she wants (aka tennis racket/ soup nazi)

This is very interesting to me, and I will continue to investigate this comparison even further:
