I've found this on my friend Carrie's blog.

Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are a Marilyn!


You are a Marilyn -- "I am affectionate and skeptical."

Marilyns are responsible, trustworthy, and value loyalty to family, friends, groups, and causes. Their personalities range broadly from reserved and timid to outspoken and confrontative.

  • * Gently push me toward new experiences
  • * Try not to overreact to my overreacting.

What I Like About Being a Marilyn

  • * being responsible and hardworking
  • * being compassionate toward others
  • * having intellect and wit

What's Hard About Being a Marilyn

  • * the constant push and pull involved in trying to make up my mind

Not sure if it's 100% true, but there you go.

Will see how the car is behaving now ... I came to our car park just outside the door yesterday after the gym and had to move the Xmas tree as the Council STILL hadn't lifted it (and yep, it's still outside!! :( ) - so left the car there for a minute - got back and the battery didn't like me anymore. :( So had to push it (with the help of the usually annoying neighbours kids who offered their help *huh*!) ... and of course first forgot to put the car out of gear. D'OH!! ;)

We've got a new battery charger thingy from Aldi last week but we haven't looked into using it yet ... will check into that as training is back on tomorrow and we really can't do with NO car on Sundays. :o

Plan is to go to the gym and then organise/tidy the pantry once I am back. Then doing the washing up/hang up the wash I've just put on and then ... hopefully ... some scrapping?! Depending on the Mojo of course. ;)
