Past Lifetimes

When I was younger, I always imagined that by the time I was the age I am now, 23, I would’ve been discovered. I would’ve been an actress or a musician or something amazing like that. I could sing and I could dance and like every kid out there, I was sure that I was destined to be famous, and that “one in a million” that agencies are looking for.

Do people ever say to you that they were x in a past lifetime? Or if you do y then you were x inLittle Mermaid.jpgAladdin_l.jpga past lifetime? Back in the day, I could’ve sworn that I was a singer, I knew that I was going to be discovered by someone, it wouldn’t be long. The reality of the situation is that I was a tone deaf seven year old who thought they could sing along with things like Aladdin or The Little Mermaid. If you want to make a technical argument, I’m still tone deaf, I’m just no longer seven years old.

So, I think I have all these images of who people are… or were… in a past lifetime. Another example, cutler.jpgis that I’m starting to think that Jay Cutler was related to Nicole Richie or Paris Hilton in a past lifetime. He’s been in the news quite a bit lately and will be traded. I say “will be” like I’m 100% sure, and although I’m probably 97% sure that he will be, there are no guarantees in the issue. I mean, the whole thing could have been avoided if both sides would have been honest and manned up by saying that they both made mistakes and handled the situation wrong. Josh McDaniels seemed to be the one who wanted to make peace, but Cutler instead decided to call the “wha-mbulance” and let down not only his teammates but a lot of Broncos fans in Colorado. He just can’t seem to get over himself and needs to quit acting like a spoiled, rich heiress.

Michelle Obama and Jackie Onassis.jpgI would like to think that Michelle Obama was Jackie Kennedy Onassis in a past lifetime. Unfortunately… the time periods don’t really work there. Maybe we can think of it as Michelle Obama’s time as first lady was Jackie Kennedy’s time as first lady in a past lifetime. I think a lot of people feel that way because of Michelle Obama’s poise, personality, and elegance. Not only was Jackie O incredibly beautiful but she was gifted with intelligence as well. 

Anyway, the point is, after mulling things over for a while, I’m starting to think that one of my favorite players was a model in his past lifetime. Can you guess who?

Yes, I’m pretty sure that in a past lifetime, Josh Beckett was some sort of model. I mean, what baseball player do you know that poses like that? I kind of just think like the little girl in the end of this commercial:

Ha ha. Super delicious. I find that hilarious. Most guys you see look like this:

Garrett Atkins32.jpgYeah, I have a sweet spot for Garrett Atkins, no one really understands why, they all think he’s really goofy looking. Can’t help myself though.

Kind of like no one really understands my other love affair with Wall-E. It’s become one of myWall-E-HoldingHands.jpgfavorite movies. Like… I’m not a cuddler at all, I’m the personal space type, but that movie is the kind where I can just picture myself being a cuddler. It’s like my would-be date movie. I can’t resist that little robot. 

Anyway, so since I obviously was not a singer in a past lifetime, I’m trying to decide who I was in a past lifetime. Any ideas? And for that matter, who were you in a past lifetime?

    You and I are entirely too much alike. I was also the tone deaf seven year old who thought she could sing…who is now no longer seven and still tone deaf. 🙂 And, ummm, I never realized how hot Josh Beckett was until these pictures. Especially the one with the blue polo. Oh wow! Hahaha! And that might be my favorite non-“AJ Pierzynski’s White Sox tradition” commercial. I actually have the super delicious line as my AIM status more often than not. And I understand the sweet spot for Garrett. Most of my friends have that same problem with me and AJ. A lot of them think he’s ugly and have told me so, and that they think John Danks is much better looking. Yes, it took all my self-control not to smack them when they said that. 🙂

    Julia- Everyone should start their day with a healthy dose of Josh Beckett. He’s super delicious.

    Sue- I think we’re in the same boat with that one.

    Melissa- I love that part of the commercial too. I crack up every time I see it.

    Jen- I’m starting to have a sneaking suspicion that we were related in a past lifetime. Our similarities are starting to freak me out.

    I love this post 🙂 Josh Beckett’s one of my favorite players too! He used to be a Marlin, so he still holds a place in my heart. And he definitely must have been a model in his past life, haha! And I think Garrett Atkins is kinda cute. Goofy? Sure. But there’s somethin’ about him, lol 😉

    Um, hot damn, Josh Beckett.
    Admittedly, he’s not doing a model pose, but Tulo ain’t bad either.
    Nuh uh! I totally used to dance around in my front yard and sing “Part of That World.” Thank God I’m not the only one! If I was anything in my past life, I was an actress. I was actually “discovered” in a Target by a legit agent but I was too old for her agency… wow.

    Josh Beckett was DEFINITELY a model in his past lifetime. And I know Jacoby Ellsbury doesn’t really pose… but, he’s still pretty good looking. I think he could be a great model! I have yet to see Wall-E… but I will!
    And I still sing along to all those Disney movies… regardless of whether or not I’m tone deaf.

    Sarah- #2 draft pick of ’99, he should hold a special place in everyone’s heart.
    Kylie- I couldn’t see the picture for some reason. I have this great one of him with his chin on a baseball bat. And it’s autographed, it’s amazing.
    Elizabeth- I have this great picture of Jacoby Ellsbury running, and it’s like one of those where you can see like… the rays of amazingness coming off him.
    Jeff- I guess Atkins does look a little blazed in that picture. And what?! What is it about Beckett that you don’t buy as a model? I find him quite modelesque.
