I AM Ingrid!!!

My sweet hubby always tells me that I remind him of Ingrid Bergman (which means something because "Casablanca" is his favorite movie), so I thought that getting this result on this quiz was great...and it pretty much has me pegged. ..well, except I don't have the really bad self-esteem issues, abandonment issues, and I don't know that my bouts with winter depression quite hit despair.

I'm Ingrid too! ;) The irony is that is the name my mom wanted to name me but my dad didn't like it. :( If I ever publish anything I'm going to use it as my pen-name. :) Grace and Doris eh? Two more of my favorites! :)
