I'm an Ingrid

Thanks to Shanna of Smiles, Miles, & Trials for the idea to take this quiz! (She's a Grace, as in Kelly.) This seems to really capture much of the essence of me, oddly enough.

  • * Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.

  • * Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.

This sounds like fun! I want to try it, but what if I'm a Phyllis Diller! Haha. That wouldn't actually be too bad. Congrats on being an Ingrid! I love her.

Interesting, I'm a Marilyn. Didn't she kill herself? That doesn't bode well.
