Well. That was almost a little frightening. I'm going to go...paint my nails, or, uhm, something.

Weird, indeed. I couldn't resist the test, of course; I'm an inquisitive person with a wide range of interests.
Procrastination? Who said that?

And I ended up a Jackie, and the description was uncannily recognizable.

'Inquisitive person with a wide range of interests'. I much prefer that description to the word 'procrastination'.

Uncannily recognisable. That definitely sums it up!

Yes, just two questions! That shocked me.

Blushes and chuckles. Poppycock about being better looking than Doris, but thank you anyway! Nail varnish is fun. (: For some reason I tend to paint my nails whenever I am confused/overwhelmed.

Yes, that was a touch eerie.

Doris Day however, was damn hot.

Oh, yes. In fact, as a girl I had the most incredible crush on her. Quite innocent - I was about twelve at the time. But wow, Doris.

I had that same crush on Mary Poppins/Julie Andrews...
