Roses

I have written before about how I can get confused by well-known women who either look like each other or who have similar-sounding names (follow the links for a full and ahem scientific explanation).

Here’s another one.  There are two well-known women (“well-known” in the pages of the Daily Mail at least) who confuse me utterly — until, that is, I see their picture.  They have the same last name (Rose) with first names of Ruby and Demi, respectively, and thus confuse me utterly if I’m just reading text (“Now which one is that?”).  An easy difficulty to encounter, I think we can all agree, especially as neither seems to have done anything of note (e.g. won an Oscar, found a cure for cancer or married a member of some royal family).

Once you see pictures of said Roses, however, it becomes a lot easier, because Ruby looks like this:

   

…while Demi looks quite different:

  

Of course, to me they both look (and from what I can tell, behave) like prostitutes;  but while Ruby actually has a more  interesting face, at least Demi isn’t covered with ink:

  

But it’s all a question of personal preference, of course, and yours may well differ from mine.  Right now, all I have to remember is:  Ruby = tattoos, Demi = curves, and that’s how I can keep them differentiated.

  1. Ick. To both of them, but especially the tatted one. Instant attractiveness-killer, a VERY loud statement of lower-class mindset.

  2. I have a strong fear of needles and bad skin (seriously, putting an artistic tattoo on me would be like asking an artist to paint on rotting canvas), but I run into people who have really attractive tattoos. What I don’t ‘get’ is people like this woman (and, sadly, my sister-in-law) who get a scattering of unrelated tats.

    I can uderstand doing a full suit of Yakuza tats. I wouldn’t do it because it’s a statement I can’t back up, but some of the traditional Yakuza tats are real works of art. I can understand getting angels’ wings on your back, or doing the ‘Terminator Arm’ thing (and I’ve seen some REALLY good ones). But if you are going to mark yourself up, have a freaking PLAN.

  3. Must like Demi more than Rose. And I think I would have to agree. while tattoos are not deal breakers, those would be.

  4. I dunno, Ruby’s face in isolation looks like a guy to me.

    I don’t like tats and I do like curves, although I have to say Demi may overdo things in that area.

    One of the gun guys whose channel I follow just got a big ugly tat on his forearm, and my confidence in his opinion dropped 10%.

    1. Ruby is extremely mannish. Definite boner killer unless you are into that sort of thing. And the tats? Ugh. Trash.

      Demi is at least feminine looking and far more attractive.

  5. Re: Ruby Rose; or as I call them, “sluttoos”. Her face, like Carrie-Anne Moss of “The Matrix”, proves that there’s a fine line between “mannish” and “man, ish!”

  6. Well, to be fair, only one of the women mentioned has engaged in a knife fight with Keanu Reeves in one of the best action movies of the new millennium.
