Cheers! To Alex J. Cavanaugh


Today's the day we make this kind and generous soul squirm.  But I'm not the evil one---it was all Mark “The Madman” Koopman, Marvelous” Morgan Shamy, Stephen “Breakthrough” Tremp & David “Kingpin” Powers King's  idea.
Let's get to this, shall we?


What does Alex look like?

I'm not sure why, but I'm betting heavy on mustache. 

Who could play Alex in a documentary?

Lenny Kravitz. With a mustache, of course.

Who does Alex remind you of?

Santa Claus.

Flash Fiction:
The Ninja crouches. He is alone, but far from lonely, for he's accompanied by the imagined classical guitar riff that he mentally jams to while biding his time. Waiting. Watching. There it is! He leaps into the Cosbolt and speeds to his target. As always, the spacecraft is first on the scene—comments are still at zero.

“Not for long,” he murmurs, his mustache twitching ever so slightly. He delivers a witty one-liner, maneuvers around the word verification, and is off to the next post. “IWSG!!!” His infamous battle cry reverberates throughout the blogosphere. He is victorious. He is…Cavanaugh.


Bonus:
Behind every good man is an excellent woman, ergo the mystery Mrs. Cavanaugh is one terrific lady. As for “sharing” Alex...speaking as someone who's come to appreciate my husband's away time, I'm thinking it's a win-win situation. Hehe.

Read more Cheers to Alex, who makes blogging more fun for all of us.

I loved the flash fiction!
Yes, Alex has "eyes all over Bloggyville" and is often the first to comment on a post... don't know how he manages it...

Luanne Smith said...

Ha! I think there's a suspicious resemblance to Santa Claus too. Cheers, Alex!

This post totally had me giggling. Well done!

Lenny Kravitz? Never got that image-interesting thought. Great metaphorical rendition of how he comments so quickly. The guy's amazing. He must have some kind of crazy secret.

I thought the profile picture was Alex Cavanaugh and he just happened to look like radar dishes.

Donna Hole said...

I can imagine Alex staring at his humongous blog roll, ready to dash off in an instant with an encouraging comment.

Even though Alex has said he doesn't have a mustache, I'm betting he did at one point....Magnum P.I. style!

Great post :)
