oscon 2005 doppelganger

Filed under: General — kees @ 10:52 am

Wednesday I met my doppelganger. I had people walking up to me all day saying, “Hi Zak!” and I’d look at them and explain that I was someone else less famous, named Kees. Normally I think I’m just being paranoid thinking people are looking at me all the time. However, today, it seemed to be true. People would kind of slowly orbit me, trying to get a look at my face and my name badge. Eventually I started telling people “Hi! I’m not Zak.” By the end of the day, I had finally met him, and we had a good laugh. There is also Dan at the LTC that shares similar features, and all three of us had our picture taken together. (I hope they read this blog and send me photos!)
