Cheers to Alex!

There are so many good things about this bloggy-verse and Alex J Cavanaugh is one of them. I've backed off on joining in blogfests lately because life is more than a little chaotic, but I couldn't resist this one. :)

Most of you know Alex, so I won't go into lengthy explanations, but if you haven't met him, pop on over. Now (as per usual) I'm not planning on following the rules, but I will answer the first 3 questions :).

What does Alex look like?
Well, Alex is one of my favourite people, so he MUST look like one of my favourite characters, so he must look like Aragorn from LotR :)

Who could play Alex in a documentary?
Hmm, I don't think Aragorn plays the guitar... so, let's go with the guitarist from Rush - Alex Lifeson :)

Who does Alex remind me of?
Little bit of good ole Saint Nick - he's always spreading good will and cheer.

A big thank you to Alex for all the time he spends on his bloggy friends. You've got a wonderful heart, Alex. Enjoy your blogfest! :)

If you'd like to check out the other entries in the blogfest - check out this link to Stephen Tremp's site - he's one of the evil geniuses behind this! :)

  3. Jemi, you are awesome! Aragorn? And Lifeson from Rush? (He'd have to drop some weight first of course. A lot.) Perfect! I accept those descriptions.
    Thanks so much for your kind words. I don't care if you broke the rules!

  23. Alex Lifeson. Makes perfect sense. And I wouldn;t call myself a genius. Just a guy who drinks too much coffee and wine and likes to write.
