I'm Doris Day

There's this little quiz that I saw over at Janera's blog where you can answer two questions and the quiz maker tells you which movie star you closely resemble. Personality not looks....darn. Now just imagine...with only two questions your whole personality is analyzed, sifted, scrutinized and boiled down to a few sentences that describe you. I thought - no way. That's so rediculous. It can't even get close to who I am.


But then up popped this picture. I am Doris Day! And I thought, "oh my goodness I love Doris Day! I can just see her now with Rock Hudson in that convertible in the middle of winter. The top is down and he takes off his glove to hold her hand. What was that movie? You know the one, where he was a womanizer and they shared a telephone party line? Anyway, who wouldn't want to think they were like Doris Day?

"Dorises are warm, concerned, nurturing, and sensitive to other people's needs." That's what the quiz maker said and I thought, oh yea, that's me! How funny....is there anyone out there who would say oh that's not me. I'm not warm, I'm not sensitive to others.

Here are some things to like about a Doris:
* being able to relate easily to people and to make friends
* knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better
* being generous, caring, and warm
* being sensitive to and perceptive about others' feelings
* being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor

Notice a pattern here? All good stuff. Nothing bad. Nothing like "impatient with people who act stupid in the grocery store." Nothing like "would rather stay in bed on a cold day that get out and run errands - lazy?" Nothin like "hates diets and stomps her foot while standing in front of the refrigerator because everything in there is fattening." Nothing like, "can't remember names of people she's known all her life" or "forgets to stir when she's cooking and burns the beans." Nothing like that stuff.

I have to admit though that if Doris really is generous, caring and warm...if she really is sensitive to and perceptive about others' feelings...if she's enthusiastic and fun-loving and has a good sense of humor then I have to agree I'm just like Doris! :)

Marlene, I've always loved and admired Doris Day, and you do indeed possess all those traits that make her the special lady she is ... compassion, enthusiasm for life, a wonderful sense of humor, and talent.

I always wished I had her hair ... lol

Linda said...

I loved watching Doris Day with my mom and I too am a Doris on that quiz. That works for me!!

Carol said...

Dale Evans grows up to become Doris Day??? How will Roy catch the bad guys with Doris Day as his side-kick? Can she ride a horse or shoot a six-gun? Poor Roy!

Letters From Midlife said...

The description of a "doris" fits you at least!

tipper said...

A fun application! And you do seem like a "Doris Day" to me!

brenco1 said...

Well of course you are - knew it all along.

I just watched Pillow Talk again the other night. It's a great movie and Doris is such a wonderful person. I bet you're a duplicate!!

Veggie Mom said...

I took the quiz, and up popped Katharine Hepburn! I know I've always been strong-minded and independent, but never that good-looking!

Pat said...

Well, there....I've met you and you could be Doris Day!! pat

Angie said...

Marlene - yes You come over as a Dors. "Pillow Talk" pops up on TV regularly over here but DD is good in everything.

I took the quiz and I am an Ingrid Bergman. I'm not sure if that's good or bad but from the good things and bad things lists it seems fairly accurate - up to a point!

love, Angie, xx
