Parceque Je Peux

"Do you want to know how I know, beyond any doubt, that I am an actor at heart?

It's quite simple really. Any time that I'm alone for any significant stretch of time, even just an hour, I talk to myself. I get these ideas for scenes, not even scenes, just scenelets, and I act them out. I speak soliloquies and confessions, explanations and songs, whispered secrets or foreign accents. Whatever wanders through my head, when I'm alone and social propriety doesn't bind me, I emote. It's not something I do purposely, either; I simply find myself talking aloud to the wall, in character."

I was watching tv 5 minutes ago, spaced out for a few seconds, and then turned to Casper and said the above, verbatim. Then I had to rewind.
