—Anne Shirley, from Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Passed my skin check with a new dermatologist today. Whew! The doctor made an allusive comment comparing me to Anne and seemed taken aback when I understood it. I may have been more surprised that he was making it, but then again, Anne's complexion is practically a main character in the book . . . maybe he read the novel as a child and it inspired his career direction!
I see that Anne turns 100 this year. Here's an interesting tribute to the book's longevity from Margaret Atwood.
