Uhhhhhh who invented Mondays??? Was it Hoover, Roosevelt??
Who made rainy cold Mondays??
So this weekend I finally divulged myself in one my favorite shows, United States of Tara.
I know I have blogged about this show before but in case you still have no idea what I am talking about… I will refresh your memory.
Prepare to be enlightened.
It’s a show about a mother, wife, and also a crazy lady. She suffers from dissociative identity disorder. Her personalities are so different from each other and all very crazy but they all protect her from her self and the pain people have inflicted on her. Whenever she is stressed, she transitions into one of her alternate personalities: wild and flirty teenager T; 1950s housewife Alice; and male, loud, beer-drinking Vietnam vet Buck. A fourth personality, Gimmie, is introduced later in the first season. During the second season of the series, two further personalities were introduced. The former, called Shoshanna, is Tara’s “therapist” of sorts, while the sixth personality’s name is Chicken, an infantile representation of Tara when she was 5 years old. Another personality emerges in Season 3; that of Tara’s previously unknown half-brother Bryce.
It’s a comedy drama.
I love it.
And it makes me wonder, if I had a multiple personalities what would they be like, what would I call them.
After much thought, I decided I would definitely have an artistic side. I would have a personality that could draw… cause I can’t draw worth crap.
I would name her Serenity. She would take LSD, would be a hippie, and would go into random trances.
Another personality would probably be a stripper/porn star.
Her name would be Princess Cuernavaca. Yes that was my first dog’s name and the street I live on as a kid.
She would be the sexual defiant that I know not of.
Then there would be Edna… she would be the old grandma. She is a gypsy and follows the stars and plays tarot cards.
She scares me and speaks of Poland like she has been there.
Then there would Leo.
He would be Italian because I know I can do an Italian accent better than a hillbilly accent.
He would be gay. And have impeccable fashion tastes, could cook like a professional chef, and love tanning.
Thats all I could come up with.
I totally am going to see if I can at least muster up one these character… preferably Serenity.
I like her already in my head.
