Trolls . . . often called Wishniks . . . not to be confused with Rat Finks . . . are fun! They have fuzzy hair sprouting from the tops of their flat heads! They’re always smiling! They have really big ears and are sometimes called “Wingnut.” (They hate that.) You hardly ever see them wearing drop earrings, because most drop earrings are longer than trolls are tall.
My trolls came from old dime stores. TG&Y, Woolworths, Ben Franklin, and the late and much-lamented (but dirty old 1951 linoleum and walls store) Sun Rexall Drugs.
They have a Troll House in the woods under our big oak tree.
They enjoy it.
What? We weren’t supposed to write about Trolls? But I thought. . . .
Oh . . . looking at that topic definition again, it’s about when you’re “going somewhere knowing that you will be stirring things up/causing trouble in someone else’s personal space–IOW, trolls.”
Well, I always end up doing THAT, even when I don’t intend to.
But this week’s topic sentence is given as: “Who’s that Trip Trapping Over My LJ?”
It’s a reference to the fable about “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” and the troll who lives under the bridge and that “trip-trap trip-trap!” sound effect that you’re supposed to make while reading it aloud.
Still, the topic was really intended to be Internet trolls.
Oh . . . you mean those mean old people who try to bait you and mess up the online discussions all the time?
In the immortal words of Emily Littella:

If you enjoyed this entry, you can vote for me here, ***NOW!***  *grin* I actually made the top 25, and so that’s kind of surprising/fun. The fellow Sartorias knows dropped out this week so he could work on his Real Work, which is what I should *probably* do, but I’m having too much fun getting people to read the entries. With the poll to rank them, it’s even a two-way street. Fun!
Still, I *am* finishing the mystery that I’m going to send off at the beginning of July. Anyone want to see the opening chapter or so posted? It’s a cozy starring Ari French. It’ll be a prequel to the other book that I’ve already sent around without success. I suspect this will work well, leading into the second book (which was written first.) But I always get all optimistic like this and it turns out to jinx me, so I’m not being optimistic. No. Just pretending. Nothing to see here, jinxes!
