Who are you?

I'm borrowing this from Momx2 because I thought it was interesting. Are you a Jackie O or Marilyn or someone else?

I took it and surprised myself. My results were someone entirely different. However, these results are startlingly accurate in my case. I wonder if it has anything to do with your birth date? I am a Leo and we need lots of attention! I don't really follow horoscopes, but when I've read characteristics of leos in the past they have described me for the most part. Who are you?

Looks fun. I'll have to try it.
I've been down with a virus all week. Blech. Not pretty, but last night I was laying in bed with my husband and he was watching the NC State game. He said I raised up and said, "Hey, that's pink's team. Are they winning?" He said "what?" "Nevermind" I said. So funny. In my delirium, I was thinking of your football team. ha.
Have a great weekend!
