Strange Problem - 'Me' card in Address Book is not me!

I have no idea how this happened, but for some reason my computer thinks that a random contact in my address book is "ME"... marked by the ME icon in the corner of the picture.

It doesn't seem like a big deal, but it has other effects, too. For some reason when fields marked 'NAME' auto-populate (such as when installing iWork), it auto-populates with her name.

No, I did not set up or register my computer with her name. I have NO idea how this came about. My username is my name, even my MobileMe account is my name.

Anyone know how to change it or what's going on?

Select your card. Click Card > Make This My Card.

Quick fix

In Address Book, click your card just once, in the Menu Bar click Card, go down to Make This My Card and you're all set!!

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the help, guys, but I don't have a card for myself in my phone book. Hehe, I don't get why someone would have themselves in their Address Book? Is making a card for myself the only way to do this?
