That was fun Lu. I didn't mind the sign up, it was kind of fun too. :)

You are one wise-cracking lady, always quick with a clever remark and easily able to keep up with the quips and puns that come along with the nutty situations you find yourself in. You're usually able to talk your way out of any jam, and even if you can't, you at least make it more interesting with your biting wit. You can match the smartest guy around line for line, and you've got an open mind that allows you to get what you want, even if you don't recognize it at first. Your leading men include Cary Grant and Clark Gable, men who can keep up with you.

Find out what kind of classic leading man you'd make by taking the Classic Leading Man Test.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 5% on grit

You scored higher than 92% on wit

You scored higher than 14% on flair

You scored higher than 39% on class

The above was the result of my test, and the starlet was Rosalind Russell.


Kate was a classic dame.

That was irritating with all the sign ins but a fun little way to waste a few minutes, huh?


Oh, balderdash. I'd much rather spend time with the real Lu-with-no-O than the Katharine Hepburn that everyone thinks they know. Does anyone know who she was behind all the mythology? Nope.

We all spend too much time trying to become something we're not. It's certainly a big battle for me, that God is gradually pulling me out of. It's a guaranteed loss. I wish I were better at believing that God is on my side.


Larry - this is why I love you! I'm all wanting to be someone else, and you're all wanting to be my friend just because I'm ME -- and reminding me in the process that God made me to be ME, just me, and no one else. You are a good friend!

Debbie -- you got the same as Sista! How cool! I confess, I started to read your comment and thought, "wow! Debbie's really giving me such great compliments. She read all that in my personality from my blog??" Until I realized you were actually writing the description of you. Doh!! I'm such a dork. :)

Sista -- definitely! I don't know why I love these things, but I do. Thanks for this one!


Well, all is not rosy in the me-as-me department; I've spent most of my life trying to be what others expect. Reasons are varied, most of them centered on self-defense. This is why I'm very good at short-term relationships but things go south after that initial fascination.

That works just fine until one meets Jesus. How do you force yourself to perform for the rest of your life? I can't get away from the Holy Spirit. In some ways this is wonderful but over the last couple of years it has been an increasing burden. Trying to make God happy.

So, we've been walking the timeline backward. Before the beginning: I learned this stuff as a kid, and continued it after Jesus entered my life in October 1971. How many years does it take for God to get through to me the idea that hit me recently, as I thought about my dead-end life and lack of interest in continuing.

God said "I'd rather have a live backslider than a dead perfect Christian." The actual statement was more subtle than that but won't fit into words.

What kind of person am I suited to be? What kind of person are you suited to be? I don't know. My guess is that some grow up farther from their center than others. I knew my center years ago but have driven myself away. Can you believe God is leading me back there? It's pretty strange to me and I'm sort of used to strange things. Too good to be true but too essential to be false.


Here's mine:
Myrna Loy
You scored 21% grit, 19% wit, 33% flair, and 38% class!

You are class itself, the calm, confident "perfect woman." Men turn and look at you admiringly as you walk down the street, and even your rivals have a grudging respect for you. You always know the right thing to say, do and, of course, wear. You can take charge of a situation when things get out of hand, and you're a great help to your partner even if they don't immediately see or know it. You are one classy dame. Your screen partners include William Powell and Cary Grant, you little simmerpot, you.

Not sure how true it is, but it is a fun comparison!
