If I were a Golden Girl, I would be Rose

Ok Ok, I know...two postings in one day sort of reeks of desperation. Read my blog! Please! I posted something new!! But after my last posting, where I mentioned being like one of the Golden Girls when I get old, I remembered that I once took a quiz to see which one I'll be. I couldn't remember the results, so I found another quiz and the result was no surprise: I would be Rose. We both have big hair and are from small towns, so I thought it sounded about right.

Over the years I've had this conversation with a lot of my friends: which Golden Girl would you be? You have to be careful suggesting to them which one you think they'd be. Especially if you're suggesting Blanche, if you know what I mean. And if you suggest Rose they'll think you're saying they're dumb. If you say Sofia, they'll think you mean old, and if you say Dorothy, they'll think boring and let's be honest, she had a weird voice and was teased a lot about her appearance by the other GGs. I once had this conversation with my friend at work, Justin, and I told him that I was sorry, but he'd have to be Stan since there are no other steady men on the show. I most likely made him take an online quiz too. He's a trooper and very patient so he went along with it.

Anyway, I'm curious what the rest of you (I'm talking to you! The 1-2 people who read my blog) think so I'm going to post a poll on the side. Which Golden Girl would you be? If I can get a team of the original four (remember, I'm Rose, and there can only be one of each), I'll meet you on the veranda of our house in Miami in 30-40 years. See you then!

Sorry, E, I'm Rose, too. I think if I'd checked that I was tall, they'd've put me as Dorothy, though. Maybe I'll take it again and find out. Can I at least come hang out with y'all in Florida? I'll stay in the guest room and try to shake things up from time to time...

Okay, I took it again, changed two answers, and now I'm Dorothy. I think I'm going through an identity crisis.

I turned out to be Sophia. However, I must admit that I did indeed doctor the answers a little (by checking yes for the “have you ever lived in a retirement home?” question). But I knew I would have to check it in order to qualify to be Sophia, and I think she is the best because not only is she spunky, but she always tells it how it is.

most of us Mormon girls are 'Rose'!

In case anyone was curious, the poll results showed that we don't have a Blanche :( Yes she didn't have the best morals, but she was really fun. I'll keep an eye out - I have about 35 years to go till I'm in Miami ;)

Just because I'm Blanche doesn't mean I'm an old ho. Just means I'm young at hot, I mean hot, I mean heart and like to feel sexy and "ah-loooor-in"
I'll be your Blanche if you mormon girls will have me! :)

julie, you're most like Blanche Well hello, hot stuff! Like your Golden Girls counterpart, you ooze charm and sex appeal. Even if you weren't a Rockette or haven't dated half of Miami, you've got a way about you that's alluring to the opposite sex.

Confident and fun, you know how to make heads turn when you enter a room. But you're a lot more than just a beauty. You've also got a great heart and would do anything for a friend. Besides, you're also a ton of fun to have around. So pull up a chair and join the girls for some laughs!

I love it Julie! I'm so glad we have a Blanche! She's a lot of fun. Welcome aboard! :)

I took the quiz and I got Dorothy. And I'm ok with that.
