the Day of the Dead/ Dia de las Muertas
This past weekend, I discovered that sometimes, if you are very very lucky, you CAN go home again. If you are lucky enough to have wonderful friends, true, kind, life long friends, then you can go home again. I had the most amazing weekend! I got to spend time with some friends that I haven't seen in a few years, and at one point on Thursday evening, I realized that it seemed like no time had passed at all. I know enough to know that those moments only happen with the people who are keepers; those moments happen between lifelong friends, and I am feeling so lucky right now I could sing.
I would, too, if I weren't so tired!
Your Score: Myrna Loy
You scored 26% grit, 28% wit, 28% flair, and 35% 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.
