 Hosted by  

A toast (roast) to Alex Cavanaugh (the Ninja Captain)!

Alex, I think what we are all saying is, we appreciate you.
I know that you always ensure your followers 
are never forgotten and I have found that you 
always try to help wherever you can. 
Although I still do not know how you do it!
I am glad I stumbled upon your site 
and feel privileged to  
have gotten to know you a little. 
 Here’s my answers to the four questions:

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

Honestly, this is such a well guarded secret, I really have no idea. I am sure Alex's features show his kindness and compassion for others. I am not saying that he must be homely then, I bet he is one hell of a spunk!

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

I would like to see Brad Pitt play Alex in a documentary as he is great to look at.

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

Alex reminds me of a teacher from school, who is always there to lend a hand and give guidance to his followers.

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


Landing the Cosbolt as easily as his creator took on the title of Ninja Captain, Byron slid open the cockpit and climbed out, stretched and headed towards his quarters.

Passing through the dining hall he found some new recruits playing an old fashioned instrument from Earth.  Byron wondered if the guttural up-beat tempo was what they had intended to play on the guitar. If so it certainly was a far cry from the light and sound experience of the Fesellan. 

The letters I W S G and Cavanaugh flashed on his computer screen and Byron wondered what they stood for. He tried to delve deeper but the station alarms sounded, he was being called back to his Cosbolt. Would this war with the Vindicarn ever cease?

For Bonus Points:
In +/- 40 words, leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh - thanking her for sharing J

Thank Ms. Cavanaugh, for allowing Alex to spend so much of his time on his blog giving helpful hints and support to all of us out here trying to find our way. We are all very grateful for your patience and understanding.

Oh I'd be fine with Brad Pitt, too! Enjoyed your answers Carolyn. (:

Great entry, Carolyn. I enjoyed your flash fiction!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thank you, Carolyn! Brad Pitt is much better to look at than me. And so glad I found YOU in this blogging community. You rock!

Melissa said...

Alex amazes me. I don't know how he does it all, but I'm glad he does. ;)

Tonja Drecker said...

:) I almost took Brad Pitt but decided otherwise... but that definitely be a good pick!

Laura Eno said...

I wonder if Byron will ever discover what the letters stand for? ;)

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

Envisioning Alex as Brad Pitt! Amazing stuff. I'm so appreciative of the fact that I know who he is so I can get the full force of the blog fest :)

Jay Noel said...

A teacher? What a compliment, Ms. Brown. He's going to love that one for sure.

Unknown said...

Brilliant piece! And I love how you wrote the flash piece using the Ninja's world.

Morgan said...

Ohhhh... this was perfect! A lovely tribute! And I agree with the spunk! LOL

cleemckenzie said...

I forgot to thank Mrs. Cavanaugh in my post! You did a great job with this roast.

Nancy Thompson said...

Mmm, yeah, Brad Pitt as Alex. Good choice!

Suzanne Furness said...

Nice tribute to the Ninja :)

Mark Koopmans said...

Hey C.M.,

I like your idea of Alex being a teacher - that makes perfect sense and is a perfect fit :)

Thanks for doing AlexFest - this is crazy busy, but fun heading to all the different sites :)

Unknown said...

Nancy - Well even if Alex doesn't look like Brad Pitt, he has that persona!

Suzanne - Thanks!

Mark - Yes, I am sure you are busy! But I bet you are enjoying yourself.

Unknown said...

Jay - Of course he is a teacher. He has always given me little pointers and helpful hints as I broadened my knowledge about blogging.

Melissa - Thanks Melissa!

Morgan - Thank you, glad you think so.

Cleem - You could always post the comment to Mrs Cavanaugh in Alex's comment box.

Unknown said...

Elise -

Michelle - Glad you liked the Brad Pitt choice.

Alex - So you don't look like Brad Pitt?

Melissa - Me too, Melissa!

T. - There you go Alex, others think of you as a Brad Pitt type too! Thanks T.

Laura - I do not know Laura.

Micheal - I can just see you know. A full belly laugh reading each entry!

Huntress said...

Whoa! Brad Pitt. Hell yay!! He could play Einstein and I'd watch him.

Christine Rains said...

Love that flash piece! Byron would figure it out eventually. I said Alex reminds me of a teacher too. He has that type of patient manner. :)

Unknown said...

Huntress - Yes, I would agree.

Christine - Thanks and yes I do think of Alex as a teacher.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

That's why I pick Hugh Jackman - that's who I would want to look at.

Gwen Gardner said...

Brad Pitt! I love it. Eye candy can be very important when you're watching something for two hours:)

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

You're the first Brad Pitt. I was so sure others would pick him. Thats why I didn't. Haha. Excellent!

Kimberly Gabriel said...

Ah, yes...Brad. He's so beautiful. ;) Loved your FF piece!

Gossip_Grl said...

Great posting in this blogfest. Definitely enjoyed reading your flash fiction. I think the ending leads up to his next book The CassaStorm! I guess we'll have to wait for his book to find out if the war with the Vidicarn is over!

Tina said...

Nice tribute! I like how you inserted the guitar into his novel. Haven't seen anyone do that yet...

Tina @ Life is Good

Unknown said...

Thanks for the giveaway - I guess my Christmas wish would be for some cash.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

It would be fun and interesting to have Byron join the IWSG. Great job with this post.

Empty Nest Insider said...

I agree that Alex is constantly teaching us life lessons. I would've been thrilled to have Alex or Brad Pitt as my teacher, as long as I didn't have to report to them in gym class! Julie
