so when talking about myself, "myself" is not an object? I thought it might be vIlegh'eghlaH?

In English it is an object. In many languages it would be a reflexive object. In Klingon it's not really an object, but just a reflexive. The reflexive -'egh (and -chuq) refers back to the grammatical subject and uses a no-object prefix.
