I Love a Good Quiz, Especially if it Likens Me to a Mad Men-Era Woman of Substance.

And this one just takes a second. The Quiz just a few questions and I love nothing better than being told that I'm like Katharine Hepburn! I've taken the liberty of highlighting the particular traits that are most relevant to my bitchin' life.

You Are a Katharine!

You Are a Katharine!

And I totally just got this quiz from another site and I am so cross-eyed from wading through my Google reader (hovering at 1000+ posts for two weeks!) that I can't remember who's site I got it from. Forgive me, beautiful woman who will be known as "An Ingrid Bergmann" to me for the rest of my blogging days! Feel free to flay me alive in the comment section. Wait, never mind: I realized that I couldn't forget this comely lass even if I were to wade through even 2000+ posts! Sassy Britches (aka An Ingrid!) was my conduit to this fun little detour.


  1. I'm a Bette, which iks kinda scary, just like she was!

  2. I got Bette Davis Eyes... I never realized I'm so scary. Thanks for the quiz link!

  3. Thanks for the fun quiz, I loved my result. Confession only to you: I did it twice cause I did not like the first result!! Ha!

  4. I'm Bette! But I want to be Katharine. Switch with me?

  5. I knew YOU'D be Bette, Marinka. I think we were twins separated at birth. Wait. Shit, does that mean I'm Russian? Or are you Australian?

  6. You can call me Indrid! Fun quiz-- so... so... MAD MEN! I love it! (God, if only those fashions were back in season. I'm all for the idea of wearing dresses whose skirts take up at least 6 yards of fabric. The better to twirl in!)

  7. It's uncanny. Take a look at your picture sitting there next to Katharines. You evenb look like her.

  8. Usually I can follow directions (it's rules that screw me up..) so I'll give it a shot.....

  9. omg! ok, I'm off to take this...I'll post my results here...omg, I wonder who I'll get...
