alter ego

"alter ego" last modified: November 12 2007 20:15:31 GMT/CUT

When the stress of reality gets too much for me I take a nap, go out, have a drink, etc. I also occasionally role play, a good choice for stormy winter nights. This requires an alter-ego, a persona.

[Saruman the White by Tolkien]

If I was honest with myself I would be something like Saruman from Tolkien, a chaotic, selfish, plotting personality. "A mind full of wheels" as TreeBeard succintly put it in the book.
