Alex Cavanaugh! This Is Your Life!!!!! :-)

Psyche! ;-)

Okay really. I signed up for the blogfest like 100,101,240,20 times, but linky no likey. He would not take let me sign up. *deep sigh* So the hosts of this blogfest defied stinky Linky and signed me up. Thanks to Mark Koopman! (And thanks to THE man, Alex Cavanaugh for alerting him to this horrible travesty.) Take that Linky! Bwa ha ha ha!

It's time for the "Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest." Uh-huh! This blogfest is brought to you by Mark “The Madman” Koopman, ”Marvelous” Morgan Shamy, Stephen “Breakthrough” Tremp, and David “Kingpin” Powers King.

All VERY cool peeps. *waves peace sign*

Now I must answer their very curious questions. Ready?? 

1.  In +/- 20 words, what does Alex look like?
Hmmmmmmmm. Did they say in +/- 20 words? Minus?? *finger thump* *bangs head* *flicks pencil on desk* *turns on music* *dances around the room* (But not on the desk)
Dark hair, super mysterious, smiles a lot, very positive #bepositive, tall, and incredibly musical. (I can hear that new guitar strumming right now). Twenty-two words, discarding my gobblygook)

2.   In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary? (Living or dead.)*ahem* Did you say dead?? And did you say documentary?? On Alex??:-) 
 Okay. How'z about sci-fi author Harry Harrison?? (In his younger days, that is) Eh?? He would have done documentaries. Right?? And he was almost as cool as Alex. Bill, the Galactic Hero was CLASSIC! (thirty-four words excluding my drivel)

3.  In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of?  
(This minus thing is gettin' to me.) He reminds me of a Ninja captain who puts out super de duper sci-fi stories, and is the coolest among the cool, of course.:-) Twenty-four words (plus my nonsense)

4.  In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts:


My flash fiction is a rap song.(Please don't think about me doing the rap to this song.) No. Really. Don't.
Going for a Grammy award here:

THE ALEX RAP (Make the Beat-Box music with your mouth and sing along with)

 Ah one two, ah one two

That Captain Ninja dude,
his guitar speaks a song.
hear what he has brewed,
come on, I'll bring you along
He makes his Cosbolt purr
that man called Cavanaugh
my head is all a blur,
he's gotta be an outlaw
making music like that
for his IWSG peeps
he's a swingin' wildcat
they love him heaps and heaps.

 For Bonus Points:
In +/- 40 words, leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh - thanking her for sharing. 

The most fantastical thank you among thank yous, to the ravishing Lady C for sharing your writer hubby with all of us. He's awesome and I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that. Do tell him to put your feet up every night for this entire week. Cause you're awesome and you deserve it. :-) (53 words) 


Did I get the Grammy? Who is Alex anyway? *wink*

Thanks for the opportunity Alex. It's truly an honor. You are always helping out so many of our peeps. You are a most cool writer pal and an awesome sci-fi author to boot! And to linky I say, "Pshaw!"
