Sunday Musings

Katharine Hepburn
You scored 28% grit, 28% wit, 38% flair, and 26% class!
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.

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

If you can FIND this darned test, send me the link - ROFL - I took it and now I can't find it to leave it for YOU to take if you'd like. Not that DOUG would want to take it, but you never know. That's what I get for ripping it off of someone else's blog.

The test creator says: My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender: You scored 99% higher than everyone else on grit, wit, flair, & class.

The Kid sent me the funnies I'll post today:

If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the policeman's credibility….

Q: "Officer — did you see my client fleeing the scene?"

A: "No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away."

Q: "Officer — who provided this description?"

A: "The officer who responded to the scene."

Q: "A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?"

A: "Yes, sir. With my life."

Q: "With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?"

A: "Yes sir, we do!"

Q: "And do you have a locker in the room?"

A: "Yes sir, I do."

Q: "And do you have a lock on your locker?"

A: "Yes sir."

Q: "Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?"

A: "You see, sir — we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room." The courtroom erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

And one more…

Q: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?

A: No.

Q: Did you check for blood pressure?

A: No.

Q: Did you check for breathing?

A: No.

Q: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?

A: No.

Q: How can you be so sure, Doctor?

A: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.

Q: But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?

A: It is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere.

Now I'm off to make my frappuccinos, totally ripped off from a knock-off recipe online. Great frappuccinos can be found at your local Starbucks, but if you wish to make your own at home, consider this:

Serves: 4

3 oz. hot espresso (see Notes, below)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups milk - low-fat okay
1 Tbls. dry pectin (see Notes, below)
1 cup ice cubes

All I did was pop it all into a blender, sans the pectin, adding a bit of icecream, and topping it all off with Chocolate-flavored Cool Whip.

Why wouldn't I want to take the test? I did take it, many months ago, and got Clark Gable. This time, I got Jimmy Stewart. Shows you how consistent I am ;)

Humphrey Bogart

You scored 35% Tough, 9% Roguish, 33% Friendly, and 23% Charming!

You're the original man of honor, rough and tough but willing to stick your neck out when you need to, despite what you might say to the contrary. You're a complex character full of spit and vinegar, but with a soft heart and a tender streak that you try to hide. There's usually a complicated dame in the picture, someone who sees the real you behind all the tough talk and can dish it out as well as you can. You're not easy to get next to, but when you find the right partner, you're caring and loyal to a fault. A big fault. But you take it on the chin and move on, nursing your pain inside and maintaining your armor...until the next dame walks in. Or possibly the same dame, and of all the gin joints in all the world, it had to be yours. Co-stars include Ingrid Bergman and Lauren Bacall, hot chicks with problems

Maybe I got this result because I said I'd bust the lady assassin in the chops???

Dunno, but I'm cool with my results, even if I'm a girl.
