Quiz and Links - Which Fairy Tale Character Are You?

woodroffe_3bears1I am Goldilocks.

You are a little bit of a prima donna. Things just never seem good enough for you! People try and try to please you but they are just wasting their precious time. Sometimes you can be a teensy bit invasive (as in going into other people's homes uninvited), but you just have a curiosity that can't be satisfied. You demand that things are absolutely perfect and snub your nose at those that don't give into your demands. You also have a calm and gentle side and love to get a good night sleep!

Wow – this is a silly little quiz, right? It does sound a bit close to my personality….lol…

John took the quiz too. Any other brave takers,  guys?

He is The Gingerbread Man.

You are so animated that it sometimes is exhausting just to keep up with you! You are always running around from one place to the next and you usually have about three thousand projects on the go at one time. You love to gab with anyone who will listen and you are always the person to ask when you want to catch up on the gossip. Sometimes you can be a bit of a tease, and you love to fool around and have fun. In fact, if something isn't making you happy you stop doing it!

(Kinda looks like him, especially the hair!)

To take the quiz go to which fairytale character are you? Then go to this site and type in  the character you are. Choose a picture and add it to your post or link it here. If you do or create a post please let us know what you came up with in the comments. Its so much more fun that way!

Oh by the way, I found this cute and fun quiz at The Little Bookworm months ago. Thanks Andrea!
