Everything but the kitchen sink...

Because I am not about to take out our kitchen sink! Home repairs are not my specialty.

But as I cruise the world of blogs, I’ve noted some really cool things happening as of late…

Rogue at The Roads of Autumn Dusk was recently listed on the Horror Blogger Alliance He has an awesome site, so check it out.

Nebular’s site CineMarvellous just celebrated one year AND won the Top Movie Review Blog 2010 award!! Go check it out HERE

Powdered Toast Man at Just the Cheese decided to take my Movie Dirty Dozen one step further and posted an Actress and an Actor Dirty Dozen. His actor list is close to mine, but I need to come up with my own actress post!

Geof at Enter the Man-Cave is posting his very first book review on Monday!! So please show him some manly support.

My review of Fever Dreams by Preston and Child appeared this month in Prinkipria. If you’ve not seen this online fantasy/science fiction magazine, you need to check it out!

Yvonne at Welcome to my World of Poetry gave me a special Friday the 13th Award! Thanks again, Yvonne. For those who don’t know Yvonne, she posts poetry every single day, and while I am not a poetry person, there is something about the way she brings her words together that is really amazing.

I pass this special award to:
Clarissa at Listen to the voices – she posts the best writing tips ever!
Nicole at One Significant Moment at a Time – she’s really cool!
Carol at Under the Tiki Hut – her Friday’s Top Ten posts are great!

RaShelle at a No. 2 Pencil Stat!
gave me the Creative Writer award – thanks, RaShelle! I’ve received it previously, so won’t bore you with facts & fluff.

Other than that, still playing Starcraft II and working on a sequel to my book. I have special guest on Tuesday you won’t want to miss. And some movie reviews are coming, too!

And snark! It was suggested that Simon at Constant Revision should have a nickname, and I think Snarktopus fits him very well.

Clarissa Draper said...

Oh, that is so cool. I don't have that award! Thank you. I will mention your blog when I post about it. I want to check out some the blogs you mentioned.

Thanks again.

Lots of busy things going on. Thanks for the great links to check out. BTW, enjoyed your review of FEVER DREAM. That was my first reading of anything by Preston and Child and I love the characters.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

At last I could read this, I saw it last evening but it would not publish.
Thought you were busy doing plumbing from the title,

Thanks for the mention really I just write about my life in general and throw it all together,

I am toying on the idea of a second book as I have more than enough new poems for one......just thinking,One of my followers bought one on Amazon and it got me thinking which in my case is a dangerous thing to do,

Enjoy your Sunday.
Yvonne,

DEZMOND said...

wait a minute, why do you need a star when you already have a cassastar??? Just kiddin' ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Well deserved, Clarissa!

Sorry, Yvonne. When I prepared this post yesterday, I thought I entered 15 as the date, but the 5 didn't make it and went temporarily live as an August 1 post. Pulled it as soon as I'd realized what happened!

Dezz, because I like to travel to all the stars!

Journaling Woman said...

Nice awards. Congrats to all.

Very interesting blogger notes.

Nebular said...

Thank you so much for the mention, Alex! :) You made my day ;)

arlee bird said...

I will have to check out all of these sites. Yesterday I had investigated "Rogue Evolent" and found that he actually has more than one blog with current posts and they are all quite creative.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

What a cool award! Thank you so much for thinking of me when passing it on. And I can't wait to check out Yvonne's blog -- writing daily poetry is a mind-blowing talent, in my book.

Hope your Friday the 13th was awesome!

Thanks for all these links :) Have a great Sunday!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nebular, you are welcome!

Nicole, it's well deserved.

WritingNut said...

Thanks for all the great links! I'm off to visit, I've been out of the blogosphere for a little while.

Michele Emrath said...

Congrats on the award to you and the next recipients...And thanks for catching us up on the week in happenings.

Stay away from the sink.

Jeffrey Beesler said...

I agree with you, both on that I too have a distinct lack in the home repair field, and that Simon may very well be the internet's first Snarktopus. I can just see him merchandising the brand of Snarktopus, too...

Charles Gramlich said...

snarktopus is catchy for sure.

Nf1andprek-whisper said...

congrats on the star... and thanks for some fun links to look at... so who took apart the kitchen sink??? a plummer???

Talli Roland said...

Congrats on the award! Lots of cool stuff going on in and around the blogosphere.

Jemi Fraser said...

Thanks for the links and congrats!

I was away most of the week without Internet, so this is great :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Michele, not touching the sink!

Jeffrey, maybe we need to help him with merchadising.

Jemi, that is just awful!

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks for the award, Alex. I'm off to check these new links.

aspiring_x said...

making 'dirty dozen" lists sounds so fun!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Thanks for all the links!

Simon C. Larter said...

I feel as though with a nickname like Snarktopus, I should go all Doc
Ock and create some additional appendages with which I can surf additional blogs. I'll need more computers, more monitors, and probably a well-equipped evil laboratory. Is Dr. Horrible still using his? I'd like to borrow it if he's not.

rogue evolent said...

I echo Nebular in thanking you very much Alex, for the nice mention!!! Being mentioned by you in the blogosphere (isn't that the former Governor of Illinois?) is like when a young comic finally got the call to do Carson's TONIGHT SHOW!!! "Arrival!" Mucho Gracias Mi Amigo

Helen Ginger said...

I shall try to be back on Tuesday. (for the second time in 2 months my computer has crashed. It's in the shop.) I want to find out what you have going on.

Amity said...

You're not meant to do repairs Alex, maybe, but to be a starwars hero... :)

I am curious with your book, how could I avail one, maybe my kids would love it! Me, too! later on!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Simon, that conjures up some great visuals!

Rogue, you are the professional and I bow to your achievements.

Amity, just two months away!!!

Powdered Toast Man said...

You better get crackin on your actor and actress dirty dozen. I'm anxiously waiting.

Stephen Tremp said...

I see a few new sites. I'll check them out this morning. Always up to meeting new people in Blogdom.

Theresa Milstein said...

Good to hear so many good things going on. Congratulations on your awards.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Oh, so tempting to follow all those links instead of keeping my nose to the grindstone. Maybe if I just leave the tab open and take a break once in a while...

Patricia

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Do it, Patricia - you know you want to!

Holly Ruggiero, Southpaw said...

This is the kind of meal I love. Lots of fun treats and great company.

Peggy Frezon said...

Congrats on the awards!

Cheeseboy said...

You are always such a fine gentleman to promote other blogs.

Palindrome said...

Congrats on the awards! Thanks for the links to blogs I've not seen yet. I like the idea of the actor/actresses dirty dozen.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

So many wonderful blogs, so little time…sigh. I’ll do my best to visit as many of these interesting sounding blogs as I can. I’m glad you didn’t include the kitchen sink!)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cheeseboy, I'm spreading the love.

Jane, I take out the kitchen sink, it's NOT going back in!

Grammy said...

Hello, again, Alex...How very nice of you to have read my posts and kept up with me over the past few weeks. Thank you so very much for your support. Hoping to get back to full readership soon.
You are a true friend.
