Funny online tests and early morning ramblings
I went to this site and took two online tests - what else to do at 4:30 am on a sunday right? I tested to see what I would be as a character in the 1400's and to see what "leading lady" I would be if on the big screen -
So, for the 1400's character I am the "harlequin" - which means:
You are a mystery, a jack-of-all-trades. You have the king's ear, but also listen to murmurings of the common folk. You believe in the value of force and also literature. Truly you are the puzzlement of the age.
Yup - friends would certainly agree with that last sentence.
And for the leading lady - I was Very Glad to see that I would be the quirky and independant Katherine Hepburn (if only I had those legs)
You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.
I love the statement about not being "classically beautiful" - or "conventionally woman like" - don't I wish that interesting men would fall at my feet!
Fern wrote a post recently about how women grumble that men can't fold sheets correctly, which of course I agree is a crock. But for some reason this post kept nagging at me - why? Finally I realized that it has been years since I've done the family laundry - DH does it all! I haven't folded sheets in YEARS!!!. Would I get branded as a non-sheet folder by some stay-at-home group? In my defense, I do my own laundry and I do iron what I need to be ironed. I do my own clothes folding and putting away. I haven't sunk so low that someone else will fold my undies and stuff them into the drawer. But sheets and towels - nope - haven't done them for at least 5 years.
Does that make me a bad sheet folder? or not "conventionally woman like". Hmmmm....
