  Which Desperate Housewife Are You?

Congratulations! You are Lynette Scavo, the
ex-career woman who traded the boardroom for
boredom, mixed with moments of sheer panic as
the mother of four unmanageable kids.

I found this quiz over at Michelle Agnew's site and, of course, HAD to take it. Okay, I admit it...the first time I took it, it said that

Congratulations! You are Gabrielle Solis, the
ex-model with everything she's every wanted a
rich husband, a big house and John, the
17-year-old gardener.

...but I don't have everything I want, my husband has told me every day for the last ten years that he's broke (Yes, I guess that looks ARE deceiving, or maybe it's tax-attorney angst), and we are among the few in this neighborhood who have no gardener. Plus, the grammar and syntax were so bad in that description that I KNEW that match was ALL WRONG.

So, I changed my "Sushi and Sake" to "Couscous and Consomme'" and VOILA! I'm Lynette! Not sure that she is much closer to me. Our parenting styles are VERY different--and so are our children (wonder if there's a connection there? Hmmmm...), but other than that I think there are some similarities. And, most importantly, the grammar (though not perfect) was a significant improvement. So, all in all, I think I'll settle for Couscous and Consomme' for now....
