Another silly quiz for you. I'm not a fan of OkCupid.com, but this one particular quiz (HT: SistaSmiff) looked so interesting on Sista's site that I had to put up with the crazy "sign in/sign up" crap (did not at all remember my password!) so I could see what the results of my own personal Classic Dames Quiz would look like. I gotta say, I'm very pleased. If I could pick one person from Hollywood's past to emulate, it'd be Katharine Hepburn. Not just her style and class (though for some reason this quiz said she nor I had any class at all. Bah. Ridiculous!), but also her wit, intelligence, and independence.
I'm amazed that she was able to live her life on her terms, never marrying (though privately -- or not so privately -- carrying on a long-term affair with the married but separated Spencer Tracy), and never -- as far as I know -- seen as a freak (or rumored to be lesbian, as is sadly the case today for any single woman over a certain age), nor ever even giving a damn whether she was seen as a freak by society. She was practical, witty, intelligent, classy, talented, independent, and beautiful. How can you beat that combination?
I wish that it were true that Katharine-with-an-a equals Lu-with-no-o, but I can only hope and pray that someday I on my best day will have even half of what Kate had on her worst.
Lord, be merciful and kind and let me be my own version of a Katharine Hepburn; leaving a spiritual legacy as powerful and dynamic as was Katherine's film and cultural one.
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.
My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
Check it out and see which Classic Dame you are. But be warned, OkCupid.com insists you sign up before it will give you your results (it's free). Frustrating, but worth it if you're into this crazy stuff.
