Thanks, Awards, Star Wars, and a Response!

Thanks to everyone who’s voted over at The Movie 411! I’m nominated for Best Sci-Fi Blog of 2010 – and really stunned I’m one of the front runners. Plus buddies Dezz, Nebular, and RaShelle are nominated as well. Voting ends December 14th.

And Clarissa at Listen to the Voices just posted her review of CassaStar! Thank you so much, Clarissa.

Still moving along with my NaNo project. Should hit 50,000 words next weekend.

Those of you who asked all the interesting questions – stay tuned next week for answers!

Elizabeth Mueller gave me the Grasshopper award! Thank you, Elizabeth. (She’s one of my Fantastic Friday Writers buddies.)

Passing this on to Jeffrey Beesler at World of the Scribe

Ella gave me the You Deserve a Star Today award! I’ve received this award previously, so I’ll just thank Ella for her generosity!

Just caught this the other day - the third installment of the Family Guy Star Wars trilogy comes out next month! Here's the trailer for "It's a Trap!"



And over the past few days, many of the ladies here in the blogging world have graced us with photos of the male persuasion. So, in response, I think it’s time for another post featuring some sexy ladies! My male blogger friends – enjoy some Kate and Olivia!

Kate Beckinsale

Olivia Wilde

Kate Winslett

Congratulations on the awards and I'm gonna have to get my husband to become and 'official' follower of your blog. You've posted nearly all of his favorite ladies!

Ms. Munn hasn't been on atos lately....? Is she doing her own thing somewhere?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Words Crafter, your husband has good taste!
Olivia has been doing some acting, so she's not been on Attack of the Show much over the past year. Guess she got popular!

Jemi Fraser said...

My hubby rarely, if ever, touches a computer - he might start visiting soon! :)

Congrats on the awards :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Congratulations on the awards!

Jamie Gibbs (Mithril Wisdom) said...

Big Lols at the new Fmaily Guy Star Wars movie. Good call on the lady pics too, we'll show them girl bloggers, hehe.
Congrats on the awards too!

Chris Phillips said...

Way to fight for blog eye candy equality. Keep fighting the good fight.

Jules said...

Congrats on the awards. Thought of you yesterday when I read, light sabers are now reality. :)

Matthew Rush said...

Ah ... lovely.

Ahem, sorry. I tried to vote for you and Dezmond but I couldn't get it to work last week. I'll try again today.

Matthew Rush said...

It worked this time! W00T! You, RaShelle and Dez are all in some close races.

DEZMOND said...

that miss Munn really knows how to entice her male fans - not only that she's lovely but she also dressed herself as Princess Leia which is the favourite fantasy of every male geek and nerd.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Jemi, and hope your husband gets to view the lovely ladies.

Jamie and Chris, I shall keep fighting for male bloggers everywhere!

Jules, it's the weapon of choice!

Thanks, Matthew!

Dezz, that's why I chose that particular photo!

Congrats on your awards!

What was that sound? Oh, it's the sound of all the Star Wars geeks out there that just passed out from seeing Olivia Munn.

Oh well. They'll recover.

Eventually.

:)

Charles Gramlich said...

Cool about all the nominations and awards. You're doing very well these days!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Lydia, they'll recover quickly, if only to take another gander at Oliva!

Your posts are always so packed with good news! I feel like you should include the words "But Wait! There's More!" somewhere.

Clarissa, thanks again so much!

Betty, but wait! If you act now...

You're welcome, Jeffrey.

LTM, the men I saw posted this weekend definitely lacked tops!

Oh man, that Family Guy Star Wars is going to be soooo great. Can't wait to see it!

Talli Roland said...

Congrats on the award and a big WOOOO that you're out in front! Can't wait to read your answers. Are you going to be partially of fully clothed for that?

Hart Johnson said...

I voted for you! (RaShelle sent me over this morning)--congrats on the nomination and awards, and well done on the NaNo progress! I should be to the word count by the weekend, but will have to go to the end of the month to finish the story, I think.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Colene, thanks, and I can't believe it!

Bryan, the trailer had me rolling!

Talli, I'm leaning toward 'mostly.'

Thanks, Hart! I'll need to write a lot more than 50,000 to finish mine, but I should hit that number this weekend.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Congrats on the awards! And Family Guy is so rude. But funny!

Summer Ross said...

Hmm, that last pic are making me wish I still had my Leia suit. Can't remember what I did with it.

Congrats on the awards and on being nominated for best sci-fi blog of 2010! That's totally fabulous.

Congratulations on NaNo and your awards. Now I’m off to vote and check out Clarissa’s blog.

Holly Ruggiero said...

Congrats.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

DL, I'm howling with you!

Simon, you are welcome! Hated to take such drastic measures. Okay, who am I kidding? I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Thanks, Jane!

And thank you everyone! Wow, I feel overwhelmed.

Cheeseboy said...

Thank you for Kate and Olivia.

Sangu said...

I can see the male bloggers are thrilled with this post, Alex! For my part, Kate Winslet is one of my favourite actresses so I was happy to see her :-) Olivia Wilde, on the another hand, just annoys me on House.

Vicki Rocho said...

sounds like you're having a great month with the awards and Nano progress. Congrats!

The eye candy doesn't do much for me, but it's only fair since there seems to be a lot more beefcake around the blogosphere.

Dempsey Sanders said...

Oh Kate Beckingsale is such a sexy women, she would be my favourite in the photos you uploaded. Great news and progress on Nano and the blog awards

Ellie said...

Congrats on the awards and your nano word count!

Budd said...

thanks for the kates and olivias. I needed that.

Regina said...

I think your awards are great and am so happy to hear that you are making your word count for NaNo. That is fantastic.

I don't object to the pictures posted. They are some of the most lovely women in Hollywood.

Stephen Tremp said...

Always looking forward to anything Family Guy. I left an award for you on my blog today.

N. R. Williams said...

I read Clarissa's post and can I say, way to go, Alex. The trailer was funny. The ladies, well, were is that blanket or sheet or a hoodie to cover them with.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cheeseboy, you are welcome!

Sangu, you should be safe now - since Olivia's acting career has taken off, I doubt she'll return to House.

Vicki, yes there is!

Dempsey, thanks! Kate's my girl! In my dreams anyway.

Budd, you are welcome.

Thanks, Regina. I only selected decent photos as well.

Thanks, Stepehn!

Thanks, Nancy. And at least they do have on clothes, which is more than I can say for most of the male images I saw this past weekend.

M Pax said...

I will go vote. Just got back. Should be back more regular now. :D Congrats on all your awards.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

I only get one tv channel, so never seen the Family Guy. But this trailer is hilarious!

Ellen aka Ella said...

Congrats on your awards; Happy you are out front, how exciting!

Laura Eno said...

Congrats on the awards and the great review!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, M Pax! Sorry, I've been absent a lot due to Nano.

Terry, isn't it great?

Ellen and Laura, thank you! I know, I can't believe I'm in the lead.

Susan Fields said...

Congrats on your awards and on your nomination!

The Old Silly said...

The chicks photos were worth the trip over here alone! ;)
