Friday Fun- Which Austen Heroine Are You?

My birthday is coming. So that means I celebrate the day (liar), the week (big liar), the month (now you're talking) and have the most fun I can. This is getting harder and harder to do as I get older and have more responsibility. I can remember, living in Hollywood, my friends were club owners, bar owners, the keepers of the "Lists" where you can get in or not. Those birthdays were full of sexy dresses, big cakes and lots of attention. I've gained a little perspective now and I can say I still love big cakes (and sexy dresses and attention), crap, I guess I haven't changed at all. That's not true. I no longer care about getting in anywhere because wherever I am, is the place to be.

So this next week will be a special week of birthday posts and craziness. I'll tell you what I'm doing, buying, and who I'm drinking and laughing with. So much to look forward to!

In the mean time I just love this:

I've seen this on a few blogs so I thought I'd share!

I am Emma Woodhouse!

Take the Quiz here!

You Are...Emma Woodhouse!
Emma Woodhouse!

"You are Emma Woodhouse of Emma! You like being the queen of your social circle (small and provincial as it may be), and feel it's your duty to help those less influential than you. You often meddle in the affairs of others, though you do it with a pure heart. You are often deluded in your flights of fancy, but your good intentions and creative spirit make you someone anyone could like."

All possible results: Elinor Dashwood, Marianne Dashwood, Elizabeth Bennet, Fanny Price, Emma Woodhouse, Catherine Morland, Anne Elliot

Well, duh. Of course I am Emma Woodhouse! I mean please what did you expect? You guys know me. Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear MRS.....Happy birthday to me! Which one are you?

Hey Happy Birthday!

Just took that quiz a couple days ago - I was Marianne Dashwood. It was hard not to cheat while taking it - I've read the books so many times that I knew exactly which heroine each answer choice corresponded too. Some of the options were direct quotes!
