AtoZ Blogging Challenge. It Be Day 9!


The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out

Idolize


Ever idolize (idolise, if you're a Brit) anyone? Ever admire someone so much that you crave to be like them? 

How about now? Anyone you look up to as a hero? 

I kind of thought she was cool, but I grew out of that phase. My husband didn't!


Of course, being idolized might be a pain.



Idolizing might be not a good idea.  (I think I just wrote a rotten sentence)



Some people have Billy as an idol.





Have you seen this LIST? Staggering.

  2. I'll admit it, I'd gladly give my right ovary to be a superhero.

    1. Really? What power(s) would you choose?

  3. I loved Wonder Woman. A dark-haired, strong woman. So few of them when I grew up.

    1. Highly visible role models are a plus when you're growing up.

  4. I'm still a Wonder Woman fan. I just bought me a WW purse. It sort of breaks my hubbie's heart...he's a Marvel kind of guy.

  5. Ha Wonder Woman! I don't think I idolized her so much as I did the Powerpuff Girls :P

  6. I laughed when I saw Wonder Woman. She was the first female super hero I'd ever seen, so she was a wonder.

    1. Noe you see I don't even know about Idris. Have to investigate.

  8. Ah, yes, Wonder Woman. Amazing. What else can I say? Amazing.

    1. I guess you'll join the ranks of the other fellows here in your admiration for WW. There's quite a number, so you'll have tons of company.

  9. I tend to be more serious in who I idolize, like inspirational world figures. But funny about Wonder Woman.

    1. Eleanor Roosevelt would be someone in that category that I could put on that pedestal.

  10. Wonder Woman is cool, but my idols would have to be Kahlan from Legend of the Seeker and Nikita from Nikita:)

    1. I don't know these either. Seems there's a lot I don't know. Good thing I have commenters like you!

  11. I would never want to be an idol.
    And what man ever outgrew Wonderwoman?

    ReplyDelete
  12. My idol since I was 4 is the guy who drives the ice cream truck. I have simple wants. And Alex J. is right -- no male of the species will ever outgrow Wonder Woman.

    1. Of course! The white uniformed guy that lured you to the curb with music? The Pied Piper with treats. He could be any kid's idol.

  13. I never grew out of it either. I still love Lynda Carter. A classic beauty....-swoon-.

    What? Can't a guy swoon?? :)

    1. Swooning is allowed for both sexes, Mark. Glad you did your swooning here!

  14. I thought Linda Carter as Wonder Woman was the best superhero ever. I kind of idolized my dad... does that count? And I really had a thing for Alexander the Great.

  15. "Some people have Billy as an idol."
    LOL!

  16. It was a Yoda sentence. A lot I speak that way.
    Wonder Woman is great but I don't think I ever looked up to anybody - which seems a bit sad. Now, eye candy? Jimmy Thomas.

  17. I think sometimes we don't even realize who or what are idols are when we get older. Heroes though, are sometimes a little clearer I think. But I agree with the men above, don't see many men outgrowing Wonder Woman. Hahaha. God bless, Maria from Delight Directed Living

  18. I've never had any idols--I don't think. Wonder Woman was always cool, but her invisible plane always seemed weird to me. : )

    ReplyDelete
  19. The kitty one is cute. I don't think I have ever idolized someone. Anyone who wants to be idolized is an ego maniac though. Most who become idols wish they weren't.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't think I've ever idolized someone. There are people I admire--but they aren't my idols.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think all men still idolize Linda Carter. My dad and brothers really liked her. Husband's eyes light up whenever she's mentioned...

    I was a big Billy Idol fan.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wonder Woman was a legend! I would really want to be like Terry Pratchett. He's given so much to the world and still producing great work despite a debilitating condition. But I don't know about idolising - that implies worship, which I'm not down with.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Me either... No idols. But certainly had people I admired ... Artists, authors, musicians, and the occasional fashion beauty! Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You know, I admire people and their talents, what they do and share with us in a form of entertainment. Be it a singer, dancer, actor, etc...I have never in my life worshiped anyone. Nor have I ever wished I was them, and I am never envious of what others have. They are just people like you and I with extraordinary accomplishments, talents, and a good agent does help! www.sandysanderellasmusings.blogspot.com

  25. I used to LOVE wonderwoman, I think I even had some underoos at one time. Whatever happened to those?! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. She really was beautiful, wasn't she? I saw her on something recently and she is still pretty but filled out like most of us women get at middle age, which made me happy lol.

    ReplyDelete
  27. When I was young I idolised Richard Hatch who played Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica show, lol. He was so gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the cat picture. Wonder Woman takes me back in time. I idolized her, Bionic Woman, and I'm sure others I can't recall.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think idolize is a strong word, it's similar to worshipping somebody.
    I admire lots of people, for different reasons...
    Happy I-Day!

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
