Could it be you, Bettina?

Bettina,

I have watched the AOL special "Ferry Tales".....and there was a woman on there that IMHO, looks just like your picture on here. It was all about women who take the Staten Island Ferry to work, and use the Womens' restroom as a hangout ( talking, makeupping, etc). I didn't catch her name on the program though.

Could it have been you, or do my eyes deceive me?

I cannot imagine Bettina (from what I get from her posts) hanging out in the woman's rest room in the Staten Island Ferry in a million years!

Maybe the low-res picture here makes her hair look bigger than it probably is in real life. The Staten Island stereotype (with all due respect to our S.I. members) is big hair, a la the before Melanie Griffith in Working Girl.

LOL... no, it's not me. I've never heard of that show, and I can't say I'm a regular on the ferry, either. My hair is pretty big today, but I think that's the static!

LOL re big hair - MTV had a SI segment on a show called "My True Life" that was outrageously stereotypical - very big hair, accents and all.

LOL!!!! Bettina!! It is you!!!

Actually vallonio, you missed a fundemental point - does the Staten Island ferry have a cocktail lounge???

If not, I doubt my NY mum would choose that route to work.

What a rep! There's no bar car on the #6 that I take to work, either.

Hey, vallonio, I want to see a picture. Gotta link?

If, when you eneter the webpage, click on "the women"...scroll all the way down to the Oscar Picture....she is second from the left. I can't be the only one who sees the resemblance, can I?

One more way to tell if you are addicted to TripAdvisor....you watch TV...and no one resembles your mom, sister, etc...the first thing you think of is.."hey, that looks like that girl on the NYC forum!"

I AM pathetic....
