There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

I Could Have Been Vivian

In case you didn’t have enough online tests in your life, I bring you perhaps the most important of them all: Lifetime TV’s Which Golden Girl are you?

I was Blanche, naturally. -ram

I thought I was a shoe-in for Dorothy. But, like Ryan, I am a Blanche. I think it was sealed when I said that I hope Heaven is full of men.

I too am a Blanche...but as I only vaguely recall the show I am not too sure of what it all means...:)

That quiz is rigged. You can't help but be a Blanche.

Now, if they had quizzes like "Bored, Bored, Bored! -- Which Young Ones Character are You?" or "Chicken Lady or Mary Katherine Gallegher - You make the Call!", I'd play for hours.

Actually, Tina, I think we're all just perverts. I know I am.

By the way, Ryan, who the hell is Vivian? (Wow, that's my second "Who the hell is...?" this week!)

When I first read the tag line for this Ping, my first thought was of "The Young Ones". Yeah, Vivian was cool, but I always wanted to be Neil...Rick was such a pisser.

Aaron, the title of the Ping wasn't referring to the Young Ones. ;) Any other thoughts on what it refers to?

The quiz is not rigged: I came out as a Dorothy, "The Intelligent One".

Ryan--Either you were refering to a Golden Girl who didn't survive the pilot, or you are refering to Vivian Campbell, guitarist for Dio and Def Leppard.

Robert -- Nope... neither. ;)

You've teased long enough, Ryan, who or what is Vivian?

Vivian was Rue McClanahan's (Blanche) character on that 70's staple, MAUDE (which also starred Bea Arthur [Dorothy] and DIFF'RENT STROKES' Conraid Bain).

Bea Arthur's such a man.

Should you wish to hear an inappropriate joke about Bea Arthur that they always tell on Don and Mike, e-mail me. :)

I would go over your head, Ryan, but I already forgot the joke. Dammit.

"If you see Kay Ballard..."

What is this then?
