i'm audrey

This is my second post for today since they are both easy.
Danica had this quiz on her blog and it was kinda fun and interesting.  I think this actually fits me for the most part.  I don't know if I meander when I speak.  Do I?
And I'm not sure how nonjudgemental I am.  I guess for the most part, but I do struggle with it from time to time.

I love Audrey, too!

    Soo...Kay..what do you think! I think yours was pretty darn close! :) I don't think you meander very much.

  2. I don't think of you as anxious or being a worrier. All of the things that are hard about being Marilyn apply to ME! LOL

    The what you like part fits you, I think. I don't know about the assertive part.

    What do YOU think?

  3. I'm a Doris... details on my blog:

    this totally describes me...freaky, huh?

  4. I'm Bette. Go figure. Pretty well pegged me too.

  5. I'm Marilyn - hmmm not sure I like it too much - interesting how a two question test can bring out things about your childhood and have them be true - not all but enough.

  6. I'm Ingrid. I was surprised at how well it matched my personality considering the test only consisted of two questions.

    Jo (er...Ingrid)


I love to hear your thoughts!
