When I speak to someone who isn’t face to face with me, I usually envision the person in my mind.
After “getting to know” so many people here, is there anyone specific that you can place his/her looks in your mind?
Do you think he/she is tall/short?
Etc…etc…January 10, 2011 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #1003780TheGoqParticipant
i picture bp totty as being average height with a short graying beard and a warm smile
i picture eclipse as being average height/weight with wise eyes and uncomplicated hair
i picture popa as being tall and hairy and wearing sunglasses
i picture cshapiro as being slightly short a very bright smile and dressed to the nines
i picture sacrilege as being slightly tall and has glasses/contacts and a sweet smile
i dont know why i picture them this way and i pray i did not offend any of them and think only the best of my cr comradesJanuary 10, 2011 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #1003781oomisParticipant
Yes, but I would not DARE to post my description, because I am notoriously bad at this type of thing. Not one blind date that I had EVER even remotely resembled my image (and the image was not necessarily of someone tall, dark, and handsome, either). I always thought I could tell from someone’s voice what he or she probably looked like, and I was wrong 9/10 times. I am talking about such details as tall/short, dark or fair-haired. I cold however, tell one thing, and that is whether or not the person was a genuine smiler. You can “hear” a real smile over the phone, if you are really listening.January 10, 2011 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #1003782popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Popa is 6’3″, 180 pounds of muscle, perfect nordic looks, a beard and peyos to his knees, with all the right clothes, and a perpetual frown which his friends know is really a smile.January 10, 2011 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1003784
smartcookie, let’s see. You’re of average (or possibly below) height, slim, dark hair, light complexion, put together. Oomis, for a while I thought I knew who you were but I turned out to be wrong. I see you as being a bit taller than average, average weight, dirty blonde & a nice, genuine smile. TheGoq, do you wear glasses?
I’m usually pretty good at these things, but sometimes I’m TOTALLY off… so how’d I do?January 10, 2011 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1003785☕️coffee addictParticipant
I don’t care if the poster is some deranged being, doesn’t matter to me so i dont bother thinking about itJanuary 10, 2011 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1003786

Heh, not bad.January 10, 2011 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #1003789
Popa, I picture you as a very obese man and I don’t know why.(No offense please- I have no idea who you are.)
And Oomis- I picture you as my tall, skinny, curly sheitel neighbor, but I don’t think she’s you.
Aries- I have no idea why, but in my mind you’re a tiny woman!!!January 10, 2011 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #1003790popa_bar_abbaParticipant

I’m guessing it has to do with BK 10b.January 10, 2011 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #1003791
Hey!!! WHAT ABOUT ME?!?!?! 🙂January 10, 2011 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #1003792
Score one for me!
mewho, I don’t think you’ve been around long enough for anyone to come up with an accurate description.January 10, 2011 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #1003793LemonySnicketParticipant
The Wolf wear glasses half way down his nose in the classic professor style with a green tweed jacket and possibly with leather patches. Also his clothes smell like a tobacco pipe (in a good way) even though he probably doesn’t smoke, and he has a receding hairline in a style that only the wisest of men seem to feature.
The Snicket 🙂January 10, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #1003794
This is a bit of a challenge, becuase each of us have at different times, shown a different part of our personality, so putting together a picture is impossible.
Uusually, you see the person first, and then try “match” the personality traits as you discover them.
Still, if I had to pick,
Oomis = (becuase I know she’s a babby, and becuase she knows who Lois Lane is) brings to mind my mother. From the opinions and values, I’m inclined to say they even dress the same
Sac = because of her moxie, brings to mind one of my sisters. No linking of appearances though. My sis is Modern Flatbush thru and thruJanuary 10, 2011 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm #1003795
I imagine BP Totty – Tall, average weight with a trim beard, full head of hair beginning to grey. Good looking in the 40-year-old-man-w-a-trim-beard sorta way.January 10, 2011 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #1003796LemonySnicketParticipant
Charlie Hall sports a short, trimmed beard with glasses and a Kippa Sruga and likes to wear bow ties.
Sacrilege has dark hair and likes to roll her eyes for sport.
BT Totty looks like any typical 30ish BP Totty except he lacks the infamous Chassidish/Heimish accent (although a real pro can still detect it)
Eclipse looks like my mother.
Oomis is a short, plump woman who slightly resembles Mrs. Weasley (from Harry Potter) and bakes delicious pastries (especially pies)
(Please note that these descriptions are solely based on a figment of the authors imagination and in no certain way represent any actual likeness to the above persons)January 10, 2011 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #1003797
BPTotty, you have a trim, slightly salt-and-pepper beard, glasses, slightly above-average height, average weight to slim. Blue eyes?January 10, 2011 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #1003798
popa: A rather spherical gentleman with a reckl and vest. Long grey beard and perpetual half-smile as if he’s mildly amused by everyone around him.January 10, 2011 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1003799adorableParticipant
cutie pie- i take is as a commpliment that you thought my name was so “cute” that you also chose it! But I think people are going to mix us up and I don’t want them to!
I know I was not around so long (I was though under a different name…..MOD 80- please don’t spill the beans!) but can anyone figure me out!January 10, 2011 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #1003800
LAer- not bad, but youre somewhat off. I won’t say which parts are incorrect since I’m trying to protect my privacy here!!!January 10, 2011 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #1003801

hey cutiepie! I was around for a long time and I chose the name first!! Copy cat!! lol! Just kiddin’! But, it’s not my fault that you chose to have the same name as me! 🙂January 10, 2011 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1003804
BPTotty- you probably always wear glasses that are very in style, even though you look bad in them?
Beard and short jacket-suit.January 10, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1003805

Would anyone care to actually describe themselves? – At least vaguely?January 10, 2011 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1003807Jack DanielsMember
what about me?January 10, 2011 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #1003808crdleMember
charliehall- is definitely a westchester/bronx type of guy, or one of those areas.
BPtatty- for some reason I see him a lil with a beer belly, short beard, huge hands!
Sacrilege- your a little hard to read, average hight, thin, dressed nicely with a manicure, loud and possibly a big shot at ur office, i mean u pull some of the rops there.
Oomis- mid 40’s- 50’s , regular type mom, clothes range in style from latest to 90’s . house is a lil messy cuz u focus on other important things, nice and likes to have guests on shabbos!
Itche srulik- definitely a tuna beigel! lol or u used to be chasidish at one point in your life
LA’er- obviously outta town, living the life, and look down at new yorkers! cuz u think la rocks! lolJanuary 10, 2011 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1003809Derech HaMelechMember
whaaaaa????January 10, 2011 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #1003810
crdle, you got that right! Proud to be an out-of-towner, even though I haven’t lived in LA for a while now, unfortunately… So what’s “the” life that I’m living?!
Oh, and I don’t look down at ALL New Yorkers… I married one :). But he’s not a Brooklynite and you could probably say that he’s more of an out-of-towner than I am!January 10, 2011 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm #1003811CedarhurstMember
I’d say Sac is short and chubby. Blinky is avg and smiley. BPT is the odd Litvak in BP. Bein hasdorim is a handsome heimish 25 yr old.January 10, 2011 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #1003812
Would anyone care to actually describe themselves? – At least vaguely?
Ok I’ll be first, but I hope I won’t give myself away there:
I have a round head, 2 eyes, 2 nostrils, 2 ears and a mouth.
Nuff said. Anyone else has the guts to say?January 10, 2011 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #1003813
Itche srulik- definitely a tuna beigel! lol or u used to be chasidish at one point in your life
I second that!January 10, 2011 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #1003814
“in the 40-year-old-man-sorta way”
but purina puppy chow in the 25 A++, super-cool “macher” sorta way?
I’ll say this much; the only thing that sets me apart from the 100’s of other people in my demographic is that I can still keep up with the 25 year olds. (so far, no beer belly.. bourbon is a low carb drink!)
Look-wise, I’m as ordinary as a slice of rye bread. And my glasses are 5 years old. (but even when I got them, they were a last year’s style).
And the accent? Its pure brooklyn. Base-bawl, chawk-lit, (but birds are still birds.. not boids)January 10, 2011 10:05 pm at 10:05 pm #1003815
<gasp> smartcookie, we could be twins! Are you that person that everyone mixes me up with?
On second thought, can’t be. I wouldn’t say my head is round. But the rest of it is pretty accurate…January 10, 2011 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #1003816
“i picture sacrilege as being slightly tall and has glasses/contacts and a sweet smile”
“Sac = because of her moxie, brings to mind one of my sisters. No linking of appearances though. My sis is Modern Flatbush thru and thru”
“Sacrilege has dark hair and likes to roll her eyes for sport”
“Sacrilege- your a little hard to read, average hight, thin, dressed nicely with a manicure, loud and possibly a big shot at ur office, i mean u pull some of the rops there.”
“I’d say Sac is short and chubby”
So entertaining 🙂January 10, 2011 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #1003817
I cannot believe how good I look to the outside world.
(Blue eyes? Full head of hair? If only Mrs BP were that lucky!)
The one thing I DON’T have is a comb-over. I lost my chup ages ago, and just made peace with it. Probably what motivates me to stay in shape. Its the one facet of aging I can (to some degree) controlJanuary 10, 2011 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #1003818crdleMember
La’er ur out of towness shines! lol
Sac- I changed my mind, ur not so thin, your in your upper 20’s, no bs kinda girl!

Did anyone care to envision RuphRuph? I dare to speculate (s)he’s a cute looking puppy with a short wagging tail? As (s)he confessed on the othe thread, the bark is LOWER the the bite.January 10, 2011 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #1003820

Jack Daniels, I hardly “Know” you but picture you as a squarish bottle with a black label and cream colored alcohol on the inside. Am I right?January 10, 2011 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #1003823bein_hasdorimParticipant
seem like some of u r basing your mental image
on the screen name, not cyber personality.
That being said, can you describe me for instance w/o
using my screen name which many times can be misleading.
as we have seen from the screenname post.January 11, 2011 1:32 am at 1:32 am #1003825
BPTotty, so no blue eyes, I take it. I wasn’t so sure about that. But you’re welcome for the compliment! Care to return the favor? 🙂January 11, 2011 1:39 am at 1:39 am #1003826Sender AvMember
I dont know why the mods did not let this go through…it was obviously a joke. I can only try again.
