So I've seen a LOT of people taking this new online quiz lately. It's basically one of those personality quizzes that matches you to something. At first, I thought, "Oh that's such a waste of time--I already know what my personality is." But then I thought, "I love vintage era celebrities. It'd be fun to see who I'm matched with."

I obviously never knew Ingrid Bergman, but I can attest that these personality traits listed are DEAD ON when it comes to myself. Hmm.... kinda fun. :-)

You Are an Ingrid!

Something made me laugh but by the time I got to the bottom, I forgot what it was!


Ingrid Bergman is such a good person to be.

Can I just say she was really good in the "Inn of the Sixth Happiness"? I think you'd like it a lot actually!
