Happy Birthday Mr. President...

I thought this was fun post for today : )

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.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Be direct and clear
  • * Listen to me carefully
  • * Don't judge me for my anxiety
  • * Work things through with me
  • * Reassure me that everything is OK between us
  • * Laugh and make jokes with me
  • * Gently push me toward new experiences
  • * Try not to overreact to my overreacting.

What I Like About Being a Marilyn

  • * being committed and faithful to family and friends
  • * being responsible and hardworking
  • * being compassionate toward others
  • * having intellect and wit
  • * being a nonconformist
  • * confronting danger bravely
  • * being direct and assertive

What's Hard About Being a Marilyn

  • * the constant push and pull involved in trying to make up my mind
  • * procrastinating because of fear of failure; having little confidence in myself
  • * fearing being abandoned or taken advantage of
  • * exhausting myself by worrying and scanning for danger
  • * wishing I had a rule book at work so I could do everything right
  • * being too critical of myself when I haven't lived up to my expectations

Marilyns as Children Often

  • * are friendly, likable, and dependable, and/or sarcastic, bossy, and stubborn
  • * are anxious and hypervigilant; anticipate danger
  • * form a team of "us against them" with a best friend or parent
  • * look to groups or authorities to protect them and/or question authority and rebel
  • * are neglected or abused, come from unpredictable or alcoholic families, and/or take on the fearfulness of an overly anxious parent

Marilyns as Parents

  • * are often loving, nurturing, and have a strong sense of duty
  • * are sometimes reluctant to give their children independence
  • * worry more than most that their children will get hurt
  • * sometimes have trouble saying no and setting boundaries

I stole this one from Georgie. I'm w/Georgie, these lil' quizzes are a lil' too accurate at times?!
I'm taking this as a sign that I am to go back blonde. I colored my hair dark. I tend to make major hair changes around major life events & then regret it. See bullet point 1 under "what's hard about being a Marilyn" ; )
Take the quiz HERE & then share your results!


  1. I cracked up about the over-reacting. How can I help you when I over-react too?!?! LOL!!

    I will take the little test when I get back from Best Buy!

    Happy Birthday! :)

  2. This was a good post and I agree sometimes the survey's a bit too true.

    I went and took the survey and I will post my results soon.

  3. And you didn't say what you liked about being a Marilyn is the beauty? Sheesh...I would have been all over that one :)

  4. That was fun to read!

    Happy Birthday!

  5. I am almost afraid to take the test. I love your new picture and your hair looks great. Happy Birthday!

  6. Wanted to let you know I'm back.


  7. I found you through the frogblog.com we share 6 of the same links so I thought I would check out your blog and I see that Dawn is on here too. I found her from frogblog.com because we shared a bunch of links also! I also think that I saw you in the church production on Sunday (I think it was you)
    Merry Christmas!!!
