Meet the Crew

Talking about voices in your head can get a little alienating, am I right?  We're all picturing Ginny Weasley with Tom Riddle telling her to kill chickens?  Or maybe a little Haley Joel Osment seeing dead people. Whichever it is, it's crazy face.


Buuuuut I've already started talking about them, so we might as well ride that train.  When I talk about voices, I don't mean that there are actual external forces talking to me.  I don't hear specific voices and words.  I mean the voices that everyone has - the instincts, or conscience, or whatever else you want to call them.  My voices are loud.  Doctor's call them, "Intrusive Thoughts".  I call them Barbara.  This (reasonably) creeps Steven out, so I don't do it often.

Dopplegangers, Sitcom Style

I don't think of myself as an overly positive person.  When I said this to a relatively new friend, she laughed.

It's been said, if you want to truly know a person, find their tv doppleganger.  It has come to my attention that I have such a doppleganger.  While it's a bit ridiculous, I'm okay with it, because, well...it's me.


I mean, she loves Christmas, she loves waffles, and she's pretty intense.  And also blonde.  You get the picture.
