ALEXFEST


Hey! Cheers Alex Cavanaugh and a special warm greeting to his amazing wife, who I am sure about now has ducked around a corner somewhere, even though she must be extremely proud of Alex, she is just as much of an enigma as her husband.Thanks Ms. Cav for sharing him with us! So…In case you peeps have not guessed by now this is the “Cheers to you Alex Cavanagh” a SUPER spaced out Blog party hosted by  Mark  Koopman,  Morgan Shamy, Stephen Tremp, and David Powers King! There are a lot of rules for winning prizes at this awesome party, so I will do my best to follow them, if you want to check them out for yourself then LOOK HERE. I am just here for the free food and drinks, however I do admire Alex the "Ninja" blogger…Why, you ask? Probably for the same reasons everyone does... he is a helpful and time giving blogger friend, blah blah, etc...etc...but seriously, he always knows the five "W's"and the one H so if I were to guess, Alex is much like our friend with a beard that has found a way to time travel.  Think about it, how does he get around to everyone? 

My guess is he looks just like Santa too…I would cast Santa as Alex in any future documentary but since he is always fully booked, I would have to go with John Petrucci.

  

Using no more than 100 words that must include Cavanaugh, Cosbolt, Ninja, IWSG, and Guitar; here is my Flash Fiction…

LET HIM EAT CAKE! (word count 97)

You could say I was surprised when Cavanaugh came into my café with his famous Cosbolt worn guitar slung over his shoulder and asked for a piece of my chocolate cake.
                
 He flashed me pearly whites from under his big beard and said, “A jug of milk to go would be nice.” Before I managed to get his autograph, he disappeared with the speed of a Ninja. The sound of his music hung in the air, and from the window I saw him fly away with “IWSG ON TOUR” written on the side of his magic sleigh.

I'd like a slice of cake and milk, too! Really fun to read. Alex as Santa, huh? And twice he's thought of that way. Santa may leave Alex a lump of coal in his stocking! LOL.
