AlexFest or Roasting a Ninja

My apologies, for the delay.  The people on my planet are struggling with their ISP.  We were hoping we wouldn't have to resort to DSL through our cell phone company...
We have high speed capabilities, but you would not know it!!!  I may have to move to another galaxy...

Today, we are roasting and honoring Alex Cavanaugh.  He is  a bestselling science fiction writer, founder of the IWSG,  and all round great guy!  He now highlights others on his blog!  He is an inspiration in the blogging community!  Thanks Alex~

Anyway and now for Cheers CAVANAUGH BLOGFEST!!!

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

Alex looks like a lean, Latin Santa Claus, you know before OCD kicked in. He loves Hot Tamales. I am working on a Hot Cinnamon Coco, for Christmas Eve.  Just in case he really is Santa....ssssssh, don't tell! 

You know OCD-Obessive Cookie Disorder. 

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

Well, we need a quiet type of enigma, like Howard Hughes.  No, I'm not thinking Leo DiCaprio.   No, our Ninja's popularity has soared. He has more of a magnetic personality! I know Justin Bieber.  

   Yes, let's dye Bieber's hair black...

No, I know we will dye Daniel Craig's hair...Bond baby!  Hang on Kitty, yup Daniel Craig with smoldering dark good looks! Yes, Bond... is the sky falling or is that Alex's shaking his laptop?   Maybe Alex is Bond's twin brother?!  He did say he likes to work out?! 


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

Alex reminds me of my neighbor back home,  Dan the Man.  Dan is a quiet man, but once you get to know him he is hilarious.  He is a bit shy, like our Captain.  He has a twinkle in his eye. Dan the Man loves to rock out with his Horse headed goozlewith bow and loves movies, just like Alex, lol.   Dan drinks a bit and something tells me the name is made up!  See, they both are inventive with names.  

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

·         Cavanaugh

·         Ninja

·         IWSG

·         Cosbolt

     ·         Guitar

No, I'm writing a song, it goes with this tune by John Lennon originally!

So, this is Cavanaugh
I hope you can see
His words have won us over
soon he will be on TV

So, this is our Ninja
I hope you'll agree
His words have won us over
Will the Cosbolt be in book three

It's a Cavanaugh Blogfest
and all through the year
IWSG has filled us with cheer

So, this is our Captain
a really great guy
He rocks his electric guitar
Is he cloned or has elves...(everyone sighs)

And so happy Alex
for all your success
I hope you find joy
in your Cassa mess-(I mean press)
(had to rhyme, forgive me Captain) 

It's a Cavanaugh Blogfest
and all through the year
IWSG has filled us with cheer

 And so this is Alex
Bond's twin bro
he rocks all of his fans
and his fame still grows

Good luck Alex
with CassaStorm
you have won our hearts
we are your Ninja Swarm

It's a Cavanaugh Blogfest
and all through the year
IWSG has filled us with cheer

I thought this was a roast?!  No, oops...

 In +/- 40 words, leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh - 

Dear Mrs. AC,

Thank you for sharing Alex with us. AC-lol  so funny!  So, I guess it is fine if I tell you, your hubby is pretty cool.  I know you know.  You are way cool, to put up with all of his online antics. I think we could be friends. Did he give you that gift, I mentioned?!   The jar of fireflies?  Oops, I hope I didn't spoil the surprise.  You are Mrs. AC-so of course you would be cool.  I know we would be friends. I hope you and the Mr. have

a wonderful holiday season and thank you for  yours sense of humor and the gift of spirited fun!

YES! Bonus points for a John Lennon song! Hilarious, too. Excellent tribute, Ella! :)
Morgan said…
"Cassa mess" <-----I'm dyyying.

Ella, the more I get to "know" you, the cooler you are. This was a masterpiece. The song was amazzzzzing. And LOVE the note to Mrs. AC ;-)
Ella said…
Morgan-I fear I'm going to go down in flames-yikes! It was a joke. I had to rhyme. I hope Mr. n' Mrs. AC forgive me, lol Thank you~

David-Thank you! Yes, I had to take the war out of it, but we know Ninjas love battles. Our Ninja prefers the wordy ones in print, of course ;D
Sherry Ellis said…
Love your poem! I think Daniel Craig would be a good choice. Not sure about Justin Bieber. LOL!
Candilynn Fite said…
Superb job on your song, Ella!! Loved your tribute!
Tamara said…
This was absolutely the cutest thing ever. Of course you'd turn it into poetry. haha. LOVE this.

And the Justin Beiber thing cracked me up.You're awesome.
Shell Flower said…
Nooo, not the Biebs. I'm voting for Bond, Alex Bond. Your song is genius, as well.. My fave line: So, this is our Captain
a really great guy
He rocks his electric guitar
Is he cloned or has elves...(everyone sighs)

I like the elves idea a LOT.
Laura Eno said…
Awesome! You had me laughing about your planet having ISP problems and moving to another galaxy and I didn't quit til the end of the roast. :D
Huntress said…

I started to sing the new words you wrote but broke it off half way through when my laughing interfered.

Emily R. King said…
I love your lyrics. Very creative!
Ellie Garratt said…
Wow. I'll never listen to that song again in the same way. I loved, loved, loved it! Alex is the best.
Donna K. Weaver said…
This awesome. Bond and Bieber. What a combination!
Lynda R Young said…
I love the poem! And those cookies look scrumptious.
This was absolutely wonderful! I loved your description of Alex, if that is even his real name. Outstanding song too Ella! Julie
I love it all, Ella. Yes, we are from the same galaxy with our Alexfest contributions. But I like your song better. =) Your definition of OCD works nicely for me, too.

Wow, I am really touched Ella! Thank you. I'll take the Daniel Craig comparison.
You have been such a special friend for so many years. Thank you for being YOU!
Arlee Bird said…
Great song, Ella Elf. Hope Santa Alex makes it too my house with some cookies and Hot Tamales. Like I really need them.

This was simply fabulous, Ella! I'm sorry I missed the blogfest. But yours was super great!
Great song! Can Alex play that on his guitar?
Christine Rains said…
Great song! Another Alex and Bond comparison. Hmm, makes me wonder what his true identity is.

Great poem! It had me smiling the whole way through.

Catchy song! Great take on the Alexfest.
Rose Munevar said…
Very creative with the song! Daniel Craig is some serious eye candy :) I think Alex is on to something by not posting his picture- almost everyone seems to think he's good looking and he never had to say a thing!
Carrie Burtt said…
