i'll admit.. i talk to myself.
a lot actually.
embarrassingly so.

and yes....out loud.
*sigh* (bowing head) and......even in public.
(but, mostly in the studio....as iF that makes it any less barmy?!?!?!)

but, lately, i must be channeling my long lost ancestors, because i'm quite enjoying the irish accent.

when I was a little girl I would talk to myself non-stop... but I would talk as if I was on a cooking show or a craft show... whatever I was doing would become a step by step process I was explaining to my imaginary viewers...

It was cute when I was a little girl... but I still do it... when I am alone and painting I sometimes will space out and, without realizing, begin to host my own little show about what I am working on... mumuring the color choices I'm making and why... I don't even realize I am doing it until I snap back into reality...

it is pretty embarrassing when I get caught

but I have never used an irish accent... though when I was young I did try to sound like Julia Child

I think it's fun talking in accents. And you have to ask yourself (or your friends), does it seem more insane to talk in accents to other people, or talk in accents to yourself when you're (usually) alone?

I don't talk to myself a whole lot. Mostly because when I do I do it because I'm practicing saying stuff -- phrases, comebacks, whatever -- and they often include swearwords. And then I realize that I'm swearing to myself, and that if anyone overheard me I would sound to them like to a total nutjob.

yah, sort of a controlled turret's syndrome...i can see why you might self edit that behavior.

here's a thought...compile those graphic retorts and make a book..i think a lot of people would shell out some money for a quick comeback reference book....especially one with foul language! well, 'cept my mom. (she'd leave out the swearwords.) she's constantly saying....'ooooooh, i wish i'd said THAT when so and so gave me that dirty look at the cash register,' or 'why didn't i think to say THiS when mrs. such and such brought the same casserole i brought to the luncheon!!'
