Rudolph Returns!

Christy tagged me to do this blog lib meme created by Liz of Successful Blog. Here are the rules as posted on Liz's blog:

1. Copy the unfinished story below into your post box.
2. Fill in the blanks to finish the story. For most of the blanks use a blogger’s name, a trait, a post title, a blog title — get creative. Finish each sentence in an unexpected way. You can find plenty of links to spark your imagination at the A-Z directory.
3. Link the text you added back to the blog or blogger you’re referencing.
4. Be creative. Change the words or storyline as you wish in order to fit in the links you like.
5. When you’re done, leave a link with the title to your version of the story in the comment box below.

Here is the story template:


Title: _______________________________


_____ was _____ , when out of the blue _____. You might think this is strange, but in _____ such things happen all of the time.

Our brave and quirky hero knew exactly what to do — _____, but our brave and quirky hero had no _____.

Seeking help for this dilemma, our hero headed down the road to _____.

The road passed three creatures — each of them was more interesting than the next. The first was _____. The second was _____. The third was _____. Our brave and quirky hero ran the rest of the way, and when he got there, he got another surprise!

“_____!” our hero exclaimed.

“_____,” _____answered.

“I was _____, when out of the blue _____.” our brave and quirky hero said, knees shaking. “Could you spare _____ ?”

And so it passed that _____ gave our brave and quirky hero _____ AND _____ and all was well.

You might think this is strange, but in _____ such things happen all the time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And this is my finished story: If you find yourself in the story consider yourself tagged (Adrian, Jan, Emila, Santa, Morgan, Spiff, Bobby, Zubli, Jean, Magical Golden Cat, Mike, Jesse, NAFA, Uncle Sam, Jackie, Blog Elf, Rolando and Amber) and good luck!

Title: Rudolph Returns!

The Genie King was happily baby-sitting Amos & Zac, when out of the blue the Genie Princess & Genie Buddy appeared in front of him. They brought with them the Blog Elf, who was screaming away, denying that he had kidnapped Rudolph. You might think this is strange, but in the Land of Faraway such things happen all the time.

Our brave and quirky hero knew exactly what to do — he jumped up and tried to rouse Santa who was fast asleep; exhausted from searching for Rudolph the whole week. Santa was too tired to wake up, so our brave and quirky hero dragged the Blog Elf to Rolando's Playground and using his loudest thunderous Genie voice tried to scare the Blog Elf into submission. He threatened to send the Blog Elf off to Mars if the elf won't admit to kidnapping Rudolph but the Blog Elf still refused to talk!

Seeking help for this dilemma, our hero headed down the road to visit Spiff the Spaceman and borrow the key to Spiff's spaceship.

The road passed three creatures — each of them was more interesting than the next. The first was the Wiseman Charlie. The second was the sweet talking Master Zubli. The third was the Tiny Chef, who serves delicious magical cookies that make you remain skinny no matter how many you devour! Our brave and quirky hero ran the rest of the way, and when he got there, he got another surprise!

Magical Golden Cat! What are you doing here? Oh, Jackie and Jesse the Cat are here too? How dare you have a party without me?” our hero exclaimed.

“Spiff is on a hot date with Bella so he left me in charge! Plus, you're too busy gallivanting on your Magic Carpet to grace our party!” Jesse slyly purred.

“Oh, okay then, he he! Anyway, I was having fun playing with NAFA Dog and the kids when out of the blue, the cheeky & cute Blog Elf appeared and now, I need to borrow Spiff's spaceship to threaten that mischievous elf with a sentence to Mars until he agrees to return Rudolph to Santa.” our brave and quirky hero said, knees shaking from running so fast. “Could you spare me his key and some perfume to freshen up with while you're at it? It's a hot day and I'm all sweaty from the running!”

And so it passed that Jackie gave our brave and quirky hero the key to the spaceship AND the mighty Genie King used it to scare the Blog Elf into admitting that he did kidnap Rudolph, so all is well again!

You might think this is strange, but in the beautiful Land of Faraway, such things happen all the time.

Hey honey bunny:) I will have my post up tomorrow! I have the overwhelming desire to change the template (just on my story, not the copy of the template that I put up to be copied) so it will be incredibly unusual. I guess you will have to wait and see!

Where have you been? I haven't heard from you and I get really jittery when I don't have my favourite princess visiting me:)

Mariuca September 17, 2007 1:43 PM

Hola Bobby Wobby! Ok, can't wait to see the changes ur gonna make, bet it'll be some big surprise knowing you! I have been visiting you, maybe you didn't notice my comments? :(

Mariuca

Bobby September 17, 2007 2:14 PM

I always notice and reply to all of your comments! Maybe it because I had one day with no Mariuca comment! I guess it's tough going 12 or more hours without you, he he he:):):):):)

Mariuca September 17, 2007 3:28 PM
