"Cheers, Cavanaugh Blogfest"



If you want to participate go HERE. If you don't, make yourself a tasty sandwich and then read this post. If somehow you were looking for porn and came here accidentally then I'm not sure what to tell you.

I joined this blogfest and totally forgot about it. It is a good thing the host sent reminder emails. Now I am suppose to answer some questions and write a short story about Alex. I am not what you call a true 'writer' but I will give it a try. As a side note, I made some Jell-O gelatin and I am very excited to eat it in a few hours.

1.) In +/-20 words, what does Alex look like?

Alex changes form and shape constantly.

2.) In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary? (living or dead)

Time traveler Alex from 12/23/2012.

3.) In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of?

That guy, dammit, what's his name....?

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

The Origin of Bacon

Since I am not an author I had to look up the definition of flash fiction. It is defined as any story where the main character, Alex, plays guitar for a living but moonlights as a ninja for the IWSG. He lives at 99 Cavanaugh Place, apartment J, where in his spare time builds model Cosbolts that he sells on ebay to pay for his Sci-Fi movie collection.

...........

You really didn't expect me to answer those questions seriously? But in all seriousness Alex J. Cavanaugh is an awesome person, blogger and cyber friend. I am sure we all owe him for something he did for us. This is we would all clank our glasses together in honor of Alex. Not too hard, these glasses are fragile!!

And I'll bet there isn't a blogger out there, that's blogged for more than 5 minutes, that hasn't heard of him!

You didn't answer them totally seriously but I don't think people expected you to, and you still answered them in a pretty fun and cool way. The short story was actually well written and did include all the prompts. It counts.

I can take the shape of anything but Jello! Which is a good thing...
Thanks so much, PTM!
Now back to those model Cosbolts.

Kirsten said...

I consider myself something of a writer, and still don't quite know what Flash Fiction is! We're all learning here, and you did great with it.
Cheers!
(Still scratching my head about the Origin of Bacon though--sounds yummy in any case!)

And here I've been buying all of these Cosbolts from my drug dealer Tito when I could have just gotten them from Alex for half the price and twice the dignity.

I like your flash fiction definition (very well done) better than any I've heard. I didn't know what it was either, until now.

You've seriously not seriously answered those serious questions. I so disappointed.

Tamara said...

To accidentally stumble on your site while looking for porn you'd have to be looking for some sort of cheese porn.

Ella said...

Shapeshifter, lol...
Yes, that could explain a few things. :D
Fun post~

Lynda R Young said...

Ha, I love the idea of time traveller Alex playing himself.

David P. King said...

So THAT'S where bacon comes from. Knowledge is power. Such an awesome tribute to the ninja captain. Thanks for participate'n! :)

Alex Fest - Cheers!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

haha, this was funny! Great answers.

Powdered Toast Man: I just started blogging with Alex about a week ago. I don't know much about him, but the purpose of any blog fest is to meet new friends. Also, I am a writer, and as such, we tend to say as much as possible with the fewest number of words. Thus, I repeat, Cheers!
