I have an amazingly interesting life in my head. At least, I think so. Often, I'm famous. Sometimes, I'm exciting, or brave and adventurous. I am always strong, and rarely crazy.
Most recently, I have been an actress with a recurring role on ABC's Castle. The cast and I have great fun hanging out and going to karaoke, where I bully Nathan Fillion into taking a twine picture for
The Bloggess. This will have to stop since Jenny has asked us to quit bugging Mr. Fillion.
Monday, during the Daytona 500, I was a NASCAR drivers girlfriend. The best part of this was the marriage I arranged in my head between Johnny and Jeff Gordan's daughter to take place 20 years from now. Free NASCAR tickets for life. YAY!
Sometimes, I invent an extra character in a novel I'm reading, so that the story can keep going even when I put the book down. I'm very good at this. Once, in high school, I was an Aes Sedai from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series for something like 2 years. I had a bunch of online friends and we wrote the most awesome fan fiction. I miss them. Most of us are all grown up now with families. Some of us were already grown up.
Last summer, I was a the girlfriend of an Irish mobster who, unbeknownst to me, had killed my husband 18 months before. The local mob was gonna make me a famous singer, like the Italians and Sinatra. This was quite fun as I was actually trying to write this into a novel. I wrote 10 pages. Maybe I'll try again. I had a really good plot line.
Am I the only one whose nuts like this? Or are there other adults who play pretend in their head while they do laundry or cook dinner, if only to make life a little less routine.
