"I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me. Or we met at some point.”
Already we have a Best Quote of the New Year (although I must admit that it's only one - more great ones at Kelly's). Those immortal words come from the incredible Archie Leach... oh, wait, never heard of him? Sorry, sorry, let me tell you his "real" name: Cary Grant.
Making resolutions about changing who we are always brings to mind actors to me -- people who imagined a character and then assimilated those values and traits successfully enough to draw success to themselves in turn. Archie Leach was a latchkey kid who had seriously problematic parents, but he truly hustled and turned himself into the icon he's remembered as today.
Something to think about.
Meanwhile, there's a new secret agent in the house! Congratulations to Secret Agent Jen, aka "literaticat", the newest agent at Andrea Brown! Just... don't send her any religious or talking animal stories, and you can stay her friend.
Oh, sorry. Are you still groggy? Fine then -- go back to sleep.
