Twink-a-dinks

So they say everyone has a twin somewhere in this world. 
Well mine lives in Alaska. 


If you do not know this reference, you need to run to your nearest Redbox and rent The Proposal. Best movie of all time. 

Maybe not my physical twin but, my name twin. Somewhere in Anchorage, Alaska is a woman with my same first and last name and apparently an incredibly similar email address. Over the past few years, I've learned a few things about my name twin....

She seems to have a kind heart. She helped coordinate a baby shower (Don't worry, I emailed back saying you'd bring the brownies). She also recently ran in a charity fundraiser.

But this lady also seems to have a bit of a forgetful side as well. In the past month I she has been emailed concerning the following:

-Overdue library books

-Several notices from the local school asking if she was going to enroll her kids

and, the best one, an ongoing lawsuit that stretched over months in which my name twin apparently used an image illegally and was being prosecuted 
books

Of course I always email these people back and tell them they have the wrong Ashley but, especially in the case of the lawsuit, they mostly don't believe me and the emails continue on for weeks. 

So.to my name twin....for the love of all good things woman....learn your email address!

(Or else your kids may never learn to read and you may be going up the river!) 

Do you have a name twin somewhere? Or a real look-a-like? 

XO, A

I have someone that has the same email address as me and I was getting crazy emails for awhile.

Ha - how funny!!

My full maiden name is SO common that there were several more of "me" in Buffalo alone. One girl - had my birthday too.

Now that I'm married, I'm pretty sure I'm the only "me" out there which causes another whole issue. You can find me pretty easily on the internet.

Back when I was in junior high or high school, I had an email with my first and last name. There was girl in Virginia, with the same name, but her email had an email or underscore in it. I would always get emails from her boyfriend. I'm like wrong Whitney!! Now, no one has my name. Well, maybe in Germany hehe :-)

my first year of college at a very small school someone had just graduated with the same name as me and they were always getting us confused.
