I was a Bette in my past life...........

This is pretty much dead on funny. Who are you?

Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are a Bette!


You are a Bette -- "I must be strong"

Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Stand up for yourself... and me.

  • * Be confident, strong, and direct.

  • * Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.

  • * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.

  • * Give me space to be alone.

  • * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.

  • * I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.

  • * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Bette

  • * being independent and self-reliant

  • * being able to take charge and meet challenges head on

  • * being courageous, straightforward, and honest

  • * getting all the enjoyment I can out of life

  • * supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me

  • * upholding just causes

What's Hard About Being a Bette

  • * overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to

  • * being restless and impatient with others' incompetence

  • * sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it

  • * never forgetting injuries or injustices

  • * putting too much pressure on myself

  • * getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when things don't go right

Bettes as Children Often

  • * are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit

  • * are sometimes loners

  • * seize control so they won't be controlled

  • * figure out others' weaknesses

  • * attack verbally or physically when provoked

  • * take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Bettes as Parents

  • * are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted

  • * are sometimes overprotective

  • * can be demanding, controlling, and rigid

Our Vote Counts

As I got out of the car this morning in the little town of Franklin Indiana, I thought to myself where is all the voters. There was no line outside the door
of the little firehouse. It was 6:58 a.m. and I walked toward the door.

I was fifth in line and my husband was directly behind me. I said a little prayer
and ask god to give us the kind of president that would help all the people in need at this particular time. And to give me strenght to vote for person that I had made
up my mine to vote for and still feel good about it after I left the fire house.

I must have made the choice that I thought was right; I felt good about my choice
marking the straight vote. How easy was that. What I don't feel good about is
the job losses, food prices, gas prices and our 401 profits at an all time high
or loss. Things have got to chance and I hope our country is going in the right
direction from all our votes today.

It's scary with all you hear about on the nightly news. So much to think about
so I took a walk last nite around our field to a fire place I saw comming from one of our neighbors house. The fire felt good and I visited with two their little
girls. I thought how sweet they are and they have know idea what is going on in this country call America.

I left a short time later and thought of my own grandchildren on the way home.
My hope is for them to have a better life than what is going on this last past 4 years. I hope that they will have homes, jobs and peace in American.

Just had to blog about this, this morning.............
