People used to say that I looked like Shirley Temple, too!

I love your little fangirl. :) So cute. Especially with her little blushing cheeks.

That girl ended up being one of my best friends in high school before we had a big fight and stopped being friends. I didn't remember this story; she told me about it when we were in tenth grade!

HAHAAHA. I have heard this story before, and I still laughed. WHAT ABOUT CURLY TOP?

YOU LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY! CURLY TOP, YOU'RE LIKE A MARVELOUS TOY!

I love these SO MUCH.

Aw, thank you! I love making them!

This made me giggle something fierce. Love it!

Super cute - loved it! :D

BWAHAHAHA!

Yeah, I was a Shirley Temple look-a-like as well.

I got it for Annie and Shirley Temple about evenly! I had a music teacher who used to sing "The sun'll come out, Tamara" at me (Tamara being my given name).

Cute! This didn't happen to you, did it?

These comics you're doing are really fun.

It did! Although I didn't remember it until tenth grade when the other little girl (the one who thought I was Shirley Temple) told me about it! Also, when I posted this on my FaceBook, my cousin told me that when I was little, people would stop me to ask for my autograph. WHAT.

Thanks. I had started taking a comics class a few weeks before LJI started and this seemed like the perfect way to get prompts for new material.


hehe, so cute!

thanks!

Aw! You're welcome! Thank *you* for reading!

Man, I never got to sit at the octopi table. They just numbered our tables... I feel the need to go back to my grade school and blame all my adult problems on the lack of octopi.

I think that is a good plan! All our tables in first grade were named after animals. I know there was a Bear Table. I don't remember any of the others but I am pretty sure that what table I sat at in first grade played an important part in my life development.

Again, I LOVE with a capital everything your comics. Had to throw that out there (again). :D

When I was little I looked kind of like Shirley Temple, too although this never happened to me. Such a cute little story!

Thanks so much! I am so glad people enjoy them!

My cousin saw this comic and said that when I was little, people used to ask for my autograph! IDK!

-grin- As always, adorable!

I was told I looked like Shirley Temple as well. And when I was a little older, it changed to Brooke Shields.

Brooke Shields, huh? That one is pretty impressive! I don't really look like anyone now, but I think that's okay.

Thanks! Someday I will do something not cute and upend the fabric of the universe!

Hahaha, that's hilarious. Kids are so funny! It's awesome that you looked like Shirley Temple, though.

I think so! I sort of wish my parents had capitalized on it so I would have had more money for college, though :-P

I want that octopus table so bad! Seriously, I love your stuff.

It was a pretty awesome table. I had a lot of octopi table loyalty.

Aww, cute! I heart Shirley Temple...when I was little I wished I looked like her!:)

I actually turned into a big Shirley Temple fan after this-- I totally still remembered the lyrics to the song. Thanks!

I love it!

I was told I looked like Andrew McCarthy when I was a teenager. Now my students tell me I look like "that guy with the bowling shirts in 'Two and a Half Men.'" I don't even know what that means.

I do know that looking like Shirley Temple is infinitely preferable to either of those things, though. ;)

Well, yes, for a girl. I think if you were a dude and got told you looked like Shirley Temple it might be worrying. Thanks so much!

Cute! I was told I looked like Shirley Temple as a child, and even as I grew into my pre-teens and whatnot.

It lasted till I was twelve or so! I totally milked it in middle school and did Shirley Temple routines for the talent show.

Ohhh I love Shirley Temple. I wish I were confused for her! You must have been so adorable : D .

Ahahaha I was a pretty cute kid. I hope that doesn't sound too vain. It's okay now though because I have acne and old lady whiskers to balance it out.
