Alex-fest!

Hee hee, I have been so looking forward to this! For those of you who have lived in a cave since you've been blogging, this hop is to celebrate the awesomeness that is Alex J. Cavanaugh - best known as the Ninja Captain! Honestly, I can't thank him enough for everything he's done, not just for me, but for the entire blogopshere! Cheers, Alex!

1) What does Alex look like?  Frank Sinatra LOL! I see him as this really, suave, cool individual who has the ability to make people smile!
2) Who could play Alex in a documentary? (Living or dead.) See above. :D
3) Who does Alex remind you of? Heh, when I think of Alex, I sort of see some kind of magical being who runs around like a headless chicken trying to get through the 50 million blog posts he has to read, and yet somehow, doing it with style! Like Speedy Gonzales in a tux LOL! 
4) In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts:

Cavanaugh
Ninja
IWSG
Cosbolt
Guitar
 It was always Alex J Cavanaugh's dream to be a Cosbolt pilot, but it turned out, his rock n roll ambitions were far too strong! Our Ninja Captain can now be seen strumming his guitar in pubs and clubs all over the world, where the faithful members of IWSG follow his tour bus, screaming, and begging him to come back to the blogosphere! 
 And to Mrs Cavanaugh, I'd like to extend a huge thank you for sharing your hubby with us! You are a very lucky lady!

Quick note - I will be announcing the winners of the Blindsided Christmas Photo hop later this week! I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten!

  1. Great flash fiction piece! This says it best: "...where the faithful members of IWSG follow his tour bus, screaming, and begging him to come back to the blogosphere." Perfect choice of words, Kyra!

  2. Frank Sinatra! Awesome. And "the faithful members of IWSG... screaming, and begging him to come back..." is so funny and quite possibly true! LOL :D

  3. If I was a rock star, I'd have groupies????
    Speedy in a tux. Good, because I would not look good in a sombrero.
    Thanks so much for the kind words, Kyra! Always ready to help you in any way I can.

  7. Frank Sinatra? Wow...he was a hottie when he was young. Old blue eyes...and such a crooner. I love his songs.

  12. This alternate tale would be sad for blogdom. If Capt'n Alex could be a young Sinatra, a la Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls? Yes, then I could see it. I cannot picture a Vegas Alex. . .

  13. Ol' Blue Eyes, eh? I went with Speedy too, but didn't shove him in a tux. :-)

  14. haha...Love the idea of Alex as Sinatra. And i'll definitely be one of the screaming groupies on his rock-n-roll tour. Great entry!! :)

  15. Good job on the flash fiction! I've tried writing it before, but it's hard to keep it short. I like the comparison to Frank Sinatra. They just don't make actors (or singers) like him anymore.

  16. I picture more of a Dean Martin than a Frank Sinatra! :)
