I hate the sound of my own voice. I hate hearing myself talk on video or audio recordings because I just sound like such a moran.

If you thought this was worthy of a thread; at least you must not hate the sight of your own typing

So you got that going for you

Usually...although, sometimes I go back to previous posts and think, "WTH did I type that? I'm such a moran."

Most people hate the sound of their own voice. That's because you are comparing it to the way you hear yourself when you speak. When you speak you hear your voice resonating through your head and it sounds pretty good. Then you hear a recording of your voice and it's not the same.

None of the voices in my head sound like a recording of my speaking voice.

CheezHobbit's name makes me hungry, but I don't know what for.

Cheez Whiz? Cheetos? Hobbits? I'm not sure....

Do you ever take two vanilla wafers and put them together like a sandwich, then take those and put them between two vanilla wafers, making a vanilla wafer sandwich vanilla wafer sandwich?
