    I'm a prayer too;).

    It's gorgeous, and so is she!

    My whole life, until I saw that picture, I thought Sydney Poitier was a man. My SO laughs at me because I have a huge lack of pop culture knowledge. Guess he's right!

    Ugh. How confusing. When I meet someone for the first time and they've seen my name on paper they say, "OH! I was expecting a man!"... :angry7:

    She does have beautiful hair though.
    Not Cindy or Sindy or Syndey or any other such abomination.
    It's Sydney, like Australia.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

    Oh, yes you are correct! I didn't notice that when I was checking Wikipedia to confirm my fuzzy memory.

    I didn't realize that her father and she had the same name. I knew the thread was about her before I opened it, but I thought the title was a typo. LOL

    It's called Death Proof, part of Quentin Taratino's Double Feature. It's great!
