    MULTIPLE ME SPOUTING OFF 

    Yesterday (March 5) was MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DAY, but I didn’t write a post because my multiple personalities couldn’t agree on which of them should write it. Now comes March 6 and they still can’t make up my mind, so to bring this matter to a head, you will have to settle for a tale — a whale of a tale, no less — and not much more.

    Actually, there is more — if you’d like to know more about whales — but it’s on film, so you will be spared whatever might have written by me if we weren’t fighting among myself for post time.

    Next time, you may not be so lucky. We shall sea.

      I had a friend named Paula. She would sleep on my couch when she visited town. I also had a book about whales. Paula would all but impolitely demand that I read her to sleep each night from the book about whales. She was endearing like that, and it was fun.

      Kirk Douglas was okay… but Peter Lorre!

        To me, Peter Lorre was one of the most fascinating actors in movie history. Though he was primarily ‘just’ a character actor, it’s hard to picture such films as THE MALTESE FALCON and ARSENIC AND OLD LACE being as magical with anyone but him in those roles.

      Shame that the multiples didn’t just write a play together.

        Sorry, I haven’t seen it (though I notice movie critic Leonard Maltin doesn’t think much of it). But, since the film title is a play on ME, MYSELF AND I, here’s a multiple personality song that fits the bill:

      I love Kirk Douglas in this movie and in this scene. So glad you posted it – a terrific way to start the day.

      Also, thanks for sharing the video about whales. I realized that I know very little about whales. They are truly remarkable creatures.

        Sometimes things just fall into place, SS. I was looking for a way to finish this post, and just happened upon that interesting and informative whales video….so it was a treat for me too.

        I’ve published a post or two in the past featuring actors singing who few knew could sing (such as Errol Flynn and Jimmy Stewart). With this post, Kirk Douglas (in a clip from the film 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA) can be added to the list.

        We can’t thank you enough, Moorezart. (Well, maybe I could, but can I help it if my other personalities are ungrateful killjoys?) 😦

      Video is not avail. I like Kirk Douglas. He is well over 100 years of age.

        Way to go, Kirk Douglas! Though he was in “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” he’s still not ready to be six feet under the ground.

          Good morning. That is very true! He is “all of the men” of his starred roles. I suppose that’s what keeps him…

    I “R” US 

    March 5 is Multiple Personality Day, a day which is near and dear to my hearts. By virtue (?) of the dichotomous nature of my recent posts, there is little doubt that I both know and don’t know whereof I speak, on this or any other subject. Us are thus uniquely qualified to be a talking head on TV or a scribbling ass on TOP. Lucky for you, The Observation Post is the place for me (aka us).

    Who originated Multiple Personality Day is unclear, but as it relates to Multiple Personality Disorder, the term has been obsolete since 1994, when it became known as Dissociative Identity Disorder. According to WebMD.com, most of us have experienced mild dissociation, such as daydreaming or “getting lost in the moment.” The actual disorder “is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states.” Think Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Or Mr. Frankel and Dr. Don. Or mistermuse and Dr. Who?

    The best thing about having a split personality is that two can live as cheaply as one. Unfortunately, when each of the two gets married, four can’t live as cheaply as three (or is it three can’t live as cheaply as one or two?), so perhaps it’s best to forego wedded bliss unless you are independently stealthy — er, wealthy. Besides, by the letter of the law, some might call it bigamy. It’s certainly biga-us, but still we’d better think twice before we rush into something biga than both of me.

    Another big problem I R Us have is the IRS. Are us two or one for tax purposes? If I claim both of us as exemptions, which of us is me and which of us is a dependent? If I R Us have IRA deductions on line 17 and nondeductible contributions to our traditional IRA shown on Form 8606 which is less than total IRA contributions for 2013 as explained in Publication 590, do I R Us punt, throw to first base or split the difference?

    We give up. Woe are us.

      Dr. Don describes DID as “Didn’t do it or Did I?”. Aka delusional in delusional or delusional squared.

      Unfortunately, I know I didn’t do my income tax yet. If you don’t hear from me again until after April 15, you’ll know I’m still working on it. Both of me thinks IRS stands for “It Really Sucks.”
