Scroll down for my At the Well post.



Linda, from 2nd Cup of Coffee, found this fun little quiz. Today I'm 'splaining my name, too. I love those fun quizzes. (My notes are in green.)











What Laurie Means




You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow. (I am not spontaneous, but I am relaxed. I pretty much go with the flow unless the flow is WRONG. Then I take my stand!)

You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily. (This is all true for me. I am accepting to a degree. Again, if it's wrong, I'll call it wrong and we'll iron out our differences. You'll see it my way and we'll go with the flow together!)

Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is. (This is true! People always ask me how I can be so content and thankful. Then I get to tell them about this Man I know...)

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. (If I was the horoscopy type, I'd say it was the virgo in me. I'm not, so it's not, but I do strive for perfection. I'm not the best at everything, though I do have amazing beginner's luck!)

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. (Puh-huh!)

You have the classic “Type A” personality. (Naw - I'm much more laid back than a Type A.)

You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way. (I am blessed, and God always directs my paths.)

And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life. (Because I trust in God, I don't have a lot of worries - and I do hope for the best in life!)

You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it. (And share the M&M's? No way! Um, seriously, I try not to be greedy. What would I be greedy over?)

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something. (My secret is out! Not!! This is *so* not me, although I do have a fun mischevious streak in me that loves to play practical jokes via email.)

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense. (Not true at all. I have about as much energy as the rest of us who endure fibromyalgia and IBS.)

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun. (No. I'm not a troublemaker! Well, I did completely cover a co-worker's office with post-it's one time. Hee hee!)

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing. This conflicts with statements above. What's up with that?)

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long. (Yes, I do. I love to read, hey, hang on while I stop blogging and go take a break. Okay - I'm back. Now, M&M's. Like 'em or not?)

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start. (Yup. Sometimes I am like a dog with a bone. I just can't stop. Then there are the times when I stop and can't get started again.)

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone. (This is true.)

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together. (That's me! I think it's called Approval Addiction, hah hah!)

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together. (Flaky? No. Irresponsible? No. This is not me!)

What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning?

What Peggy Means

"You are influential and persuasive. You tend to have a lot of power over people.

Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.

Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are deeply philosophical and thoughtful. You tend to analyze every aspect of your life.

You are intuitive, brilliant, and quite introverted. You value your time alone.

Often times, you are grumpy with other people. You don't appreciate them trying to interfere in your affairs.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care."

Is this like this is then or this is now??? Because they all are not true...but close enough...I definitely am not irresponsible!

I wonder what my real legal name means??? Hhhhhhmmmmmmm!

I'm glad that you straightened them out!
