Inventing Xena

 Windsurfer dude!

Monday, and for the next two weeks, I have to be someone I am not. I have to pretend that all is cool, that I am happy to be 'there' and  that I can put up with anything. I have to invent my psyche.
I am looking through my troll dolls to see who I can be.
XENA! (more of less...)

One year that I taught high school, my fellow teachers awarded me the Xena, Warrior Princess award. I think it was because I had the most gang-bangers in my classes. I survived that year - and I know I can survive the next two weeks.
I am thinking of being:
The Queen
Street surfer
Count Dracula
Master Chef
The Grand Wizard
  Arrrr.. A Pirate, matey
Little Bo Peep & her sheep
Lindsey Vonn, Olympic skier
Tennis pro
Really, I just want to be me...

Wow, a blast from the past. After reading your post I realized my Troll dolls are packed and stored somewhere in the attic. Your post brought forth many happy childhood memories! Thank you.

So we should have a poll? I have about 50 more I can post tomorrow, and then make a poll out of it. Help - like vote until Monday? And to be smart, I would just post another 10 or so - the creative ones. haha.

I haven't seen a troll in years!!! Brenda, I just responded to your comment on my blog. Thanks for being one my first followers and sticking with me! I put you on my bloglines way back when before I was "following" anyone and then never checked it. So, now I've got you cued in will have to catch up!

I want to know what's prompting this. You wouldn't trot out the trolls if it weren't serious.

Brenda's Arizona said...

Serious is right, dudette.
But check Saturday's post for more choices!

That is so cute...absolutely & totally. I think you should be YOU but dressed as Xena - YEAH! Barring having trouble finding the exact outfit, then definitely the skier...'tis the season.

I think you should be the pirate. Can't go wrong with a Johnny Depp Pirate Troll attitude!
