do you ever wonder about who you really want to be?  if you just had your way?  i remember thinking about this in fifth grade.  no doubt sitting in my desk, in my pastel knit sweater and pony tail, coming to the conclusion that i wanted to be gloss black and 6 feet tall.


but when you think about it, who is better at being black and 6 feet tall than grace jones?  i was channel surfing once and passed by zula on conan the destroyer.  “there she is,” i thought, “the woman of my dreams.”  minus the tail, of course.  plus a few more clothes and a bit more composure.  think “zula” meets “clint eastwood” and you pretty much have it.  my alter ego.  i only mention this because i really enjoyed coca-cola’s avatar commercial that aired during the super bowl.  i wonder how surprising it would be if you really could see everyone’s imaginary self.  (do tell, by the way.  maybe i will feel less weird.)

    Hi! This is Mom. Got to thinking, and if i were to be a different me what would I be looking for? I am kind of a split personality already (I try to contain the granola me though). I think I would want to be Grace Kelly, Doris Day or a Pollyanna.
