Trolls I Have Seen this Weekend
Here I embrace my inner geek and present this picture of myself as Zalli the Troll, my World of Warcraft character.
She has red eyes, big red hair, and blue-green skin. In Azeroth, it's quite a fetching combination. Don'tcha think?
I spent a good part of the weekend at the local Filberg Festival and happened to run into some other kinds of trolls there.
They had rather larger noses than the trolls I fancy and were lumpier in general. Also, the trolls in WoW tend to carry a honkin' big weapon of some description and these trolls tended more to carrying parasols and playing the bodhran drum.
Hmmm...actually much more up my alley in some respects! :)
When these trolls walked by some children crumpled their little faces in distress and bawled.
But not our Zoe!
Nope, Zoe the Baby got a good hold of one of their noses and didn't want to let go.

Other potentially frightening things for children at the Filberg this weekend: marionettes that look like the musicians from KISS and AC/DC .
I also saw some Yoda puppets and two little kids duking it out with Darth Vader marionettes. They were shrieking "Die! Die!"
I'm guessing the trolls woudn't faze those youngsters one little bit.
