  2. We're both 5'8"
  3. We had dark brown hair in high school
  4. We graduated from HS the same year
  5. Meg's character was married to a Navy Pilot in the movie Top Gun. I married a Navy Pilot
  6. Meg starred in the movie "The Presidio". I was stationed on The Presidio.
  7. We currently have teenage sons from a prior marriage.
  8. She found true love over the internet in the movie "You've got mail". I found true love over the internet too! (Mine was real life though - sorry Meg)
  9. Remember that famous scene in the movie "When Harry met Sally"? I can do that too. ;)
  10. We both recently adopted a daughter from China!

Cute list. You've Got Mail is on my list of favorite movies.

I can't find an article on her adoption at China Daily...must not be looking in the right spot. Can you forward it to me?

Just a small correction - in the movie Top Gun, her character was married to the Navy Pilot.

And I met my second (and current) husband via the internet as well! On AOL. :) we've been together now for 9 years. :)
