Lunchtime Poll: Do you ever hear voices in your head?

Today's poll topic comes courtesy of Christina "WHY DON'T I HAVE A BOYFRIEND" (That never gets old! NEVER!) Boucher, who, by the way, told me that my blog primarily consists of things I hear her say. (Is this too meta for you, Christina? Am I blowing your mind?) ANYWAY, I really like this topic because it's something I've thought about (lie) and have an answer for (the god's-honest-truth).

If you're like me, you were a very jealous and bitter child who grew up in the early '90s not understanding why Kevin Arnold was lucky enough to have Daniel Stern narrate his life on The Wonder Years. It just wasn't fair, I thought, that I didn't have a distinctive voice in my head explaining to an audience what I was always thinking. (I'm dead-serious here. I was the kind of kid who kept journals full of LIES, expecting someday that I'd be famous and someone would want to publish my juvenilia.)

So, if you're like me, you've thought of a celebrity who you'd want to narrate your life. I picked the Academy Award-winning star of Kindergarten Cop*, Linda Hunt:
Who would you pick, and why?

*Sadly, Linda Hunt did not win for Kindergarten Cop.

Tim Curry.

I don't feel the need to explain.

Tyler dear, I just have no idea how to answer this one. I'm sorry. I'll keep thinking.

Dennis Quaid. Because I love him and his velvety-smooth voice makes my jaded, cold heart skip a beat.

Dame Judi Dench, mainly because she's a badass.
