Blogfests!!

January 1, 2011 – Eye Candy Blogfest
Post a favorite picture, any picture you want (ummm...PG-13 please) as long as it's something that makes you smile or say 'ahhhh' every time you see it.
Hosted by Vicki at Rambles and Randomness
And I've a great picture for this one! (No, it's not Kate!)

January 3, 2011 – Show me Yours Blogfest.
The point of this blogfest is to share an excerpt of your NaNoWriMo novel. It can be any scene but try to keep it at 500 words so we can all get around to as many blogs as possible.

So, who’s buying me the Bugatti this year? Anyone?

I can't afford the bugatti, Alex, but you'll be pleased to note that a copy of CassaStar has made it into the Kitsap Regional Library system, per my request. I'm going to be reading it and will definitely post a review at World of the Scribe when I am done.

Merry Christmas, Alex!

Jamie Gibbs (Mithril Wisdom) said...

I want that Cthulu plushie!! Have you seen the cute plushies that have been made to represent illnesses and viruses? They're oddly adorable :P

I'm looking forward to the Show me yours blogfest, it'll be good to see everyone's entries :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey Jeffrey - thanks! Hope you enjoy it.

Jamie, there's matching Cthulhu slippers, too.

TS Hendrik said...

The plushie is really cool. I'd also like the last three, but I think I'm just a little short of that kind of cash. haha

Saumya said...

I. Want. The. Ice. Cube. Tray.

HAHA, and I love the "Show Me Yours" picture.

Old Kitty said...

Alien Queen!! Big replica of the Alien Queen please!!! Thank you. I've been good alllll year, saintly even, character beyond question - so good I've sprouted wings and a halo. I deserve the Alien Queen!

:-) Take care
x

Holly Ruggiero said...

I like the plushie. My neighbors might complain if I put the alien queen by my front door - but I'd put a Santa hat on her.

Pat Tillett said...

If I spend 1.5 million on a car, it better be "the" fastest!
I would really like that alien statue, but I'm sure it would drive me cats insand!
Alex, thanks for checking up one me!

DEZMOND said...

the real question is ARE YOU REALLY BUYING ME THAT SAMSUNG? You know you should, you know you could ...

Haleine said...

You're right. I really do want that television. Watching football would be so awesome on that thing.

Cheeseboy said...

Blog fest doesn't seem nearly as exciting as say a rock fest, but it is so much more rockin'.

Those ice cubes would be perfect for when I have my spy friends over. Great idea!

Chuck said...

Alex, I have a nice 1/32 scale Bugatti picked out for you! Now you just send that TV along to me, will ya?

Candyland said...

Ooohh great links! Thanks Alex!

Summer Ross said...

The blogfests look entertaining I put them up with all the others on my sidebar.

Great gift ideas...lol I like the tv, that's my wish. :)

mshatch said...

I want the first four but I'd prefer a Cayman S - and I'll be signing up for the eye candy blogfest. Thanks!

Colene Murphy said...

You got the car if I can have the alien and the TV. Fair right?!

j.m. neeb said...

I want the alien queen and then I'm going to host the best Halloween party ever... year-round!!

Once I fulfill my "five-year plan" (of winning the lottery), I'll spring for that Bugatti for you.

Jai Joshi said...

That Cthulhu plushie took the biscuit for me. I love that idea.

Jai

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Saumya, I think I need to get the ice cube tray.

Kitty, will Charlie want his own as well?

Holly, now that would be festive.

Pat, it is the fastest "street legal" car in existance.

Dezz, I know I would, but...

Haleine, it's really cool on my 50", but I want bigger!

Cheeseboy, just don't reveal that they're made of ice.

Chuck, 1/32 scale TV as well, sir?

Colene, that is more than fair!

jm - deal!

Mason Canyon said...

Lot of neat gifts, but the ice tray is one I'd love to have. LOL

Thoughts in Progress

Teresa aka JW said...

my eyes are on the Bugatti and the bullet ice cube trays. What does that say about me? hmm

The Happy Whisk said...

Six grand for a television? Yow.

Stephen Tremp said...

Try a trip through a wormhole ... similar to a Bugatti. Once I complete that particle accelerator in my garage I'll send one your way.

Ellen aka Ella said...

oooh, what a dream to own a car like that, must have the bullet ice cube tray...
Funny, my husband and I raced home tonight, he thinks I cheat cause I won~ He would be right ;-D I like to speed~ Back roads in NC, are the back bones of Nascar's training!

What is the fastest car?

Clarissa Draper said...

Okay, please don't hate me but I'm a freak fan of Top Gear and when James May drives the Bugatti, it sends shivers up my spine. I'll have one of those please!

Marguerite said...

Cool gift ideas and great linkage! Would love the ice trays and the t.v., but since I don't like to drive fast, think I'll pass on the car! And if I'm ever a billionaire, I'll buy it for you!

M Pax said...

A new TV would be very nice. Going to replace the dvd with a blue ray first. :)

I saw these ice straws some place. Almost as neat as the bullets.

Jennifer Hillier said...

That ice cube tray looks kinda cool!

$1.5 million for a Bugatti? Heck, I'll take two!

Ted Cross said...

I wish more people would advertise when there are blogfests. There have been a number of them that I only heard about because I saw people posting entries, but they were ones I would have liked to join.

Missed Periods said...

I guess there's room for one more Bugatti in my garage.

Nebular said...

I want all those gifts, or atleast the Bugatti :)

Eye Candy Blogfest? Wow, this is a great idea. I'm in.

Enid Wilson said...

The Bugatti is mine! Failing that, I don't mind you beaming me the alien queen.

Fire and Cross

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Teresa, you have a super-spy mentality!

Thanks, Stephen!

Ella, there's a lot of back roads in NC!

Clarissa, I dig that show!!!

Thank you, Marguerite.

Well Ted, hope I gave you enough warning with these two.

Hart Johnson said...

I just Squeeeeeeeed at that cuddly little Cthulu!!! He's so CUTE! (in that evil, take over the mountain kind of way) and the ice bullets... EXCELLENT! I've always thought a nice pointy icicle was a perfect murder weapon, but you can't use them from across the room!

Michelle Gregory said...

looks like you had fun rounding up those pictures of xmas gifts. wild. maybe i'll do the eye candy blogfest. gotta love Adrian Paul.

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

The TV would be awseome, but funds dictate I want that cute Cthulhu plushie. ;)

Carol Kilgore said...

If only I had a spare two million laying around .....

Helen Ginger said...

I can see uses for the bullet ice tray. Fictional uses!

Kelley said...

I REALLY love those AK ice cubes!! I think I am going to get those for my husband.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Three guesses what I wiould like for Christmas but the outcome is very remote.

Loved the post,

Yvonne.

Charles Gramlich said...

I have a plush Chtulhu, so if you're giving gifts I'll take the Bugati.

Arlee Bird said...

When I was working for Morris Costume Company (based in Charlotte) we sold those Alien Queen figures. Those things are huge. They probably would not fit in most peoples' homes. I believe Michael Jackson bought one from us. Okay, I guess he had room at Neverland.

Tossing It Out

Bryan Russell (Ink) said...

If someone buys you the Bugatti, could I, um, borrow it for awhile?

Falen (Sarah Ahiers) said...

ooh, i didn't know about the eye candy blogfest - i'm all over that!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hart, you could fling them across the room if you were part ninja!

Lindsay, the plushie is a hit!

Charles - duly noted!

Lee, that's wild!

Bryan, I'll give you a ride...

Chris Phillips said...

Dude! I want the ice tray! i live how they are curved like a banana clip too!

Glynis said...

Couldn't decide, so wrapped them all and sent them to you on a Cypriot Donkey...if you don't get them, the donkey went the wrong way! ;0

Powdered Toast Man said...

I always wondered what my drink was missing; bullet shaped ice cubes!!

I might join in on the picture blogfest, not sure yet.

Sorry I haven't been around in awhile.

Nicki Elson said...

Very interesting Christmas you're going to have there in the Cavanaugh household. The Lovecraft critter has to be my favorite.

Lynda Young said...

aw..I love the plush toy...so cute! And reducing Cthulhu down to a stuffed toy kinda amuses me.

Budd said...

love the ice tray, but $19? They Eye candy blogfest grabbed my attention, that could be interesting.

Aleta said...

If I could buy you one, I'd buy me one too... we're both out of luck :(

Cool ice cube tray. Lol.

N. R. Williams said...

Oh dear...fast cars. Well, in your dreams I fear, sweet Alex.
Nancy

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glynis, stupid donkey!

Powdered, good to hear from you!

Nicki, I think everyone likes him.

Lynda, that is kind of ironic isn't it?

Nancy, and in my Need For Speed game!

Abby Minard said...

I'm trying to decide where to put the life size alien queen you'll get me. I'm thinking the living room.

RaShelle said...

Alex - My hubs already has a 65 inch tv. The bullet ice cube tray is pretty funny. And, the Alien queen is awesome. Do you have her already??? My hubs (okay, me) would love the car. Too bad I don't have 1.5 mil. Eeep, that's just crazy!!! And, truthfully, even if I did, I wouldn't spend it on a car. I have my priorities, but it's gorgeous!!!

Vicki Rocho said...

I can spring for a BUG (and no, not the VW variety, I was thinking of the 6 legged variety)...but then you DID go out of your way to mention the blogfest, so I'll put in a good worth for you with Santa.

BryStearns said...

Ha! Those are some brilliant gift ideas Alex! I wish that I didn't have all my Christmas presents yet or else my family would get some of the best gifts ever! Thanks Alex, and I look forward to reading some of your Nanowrimo.

Mary Vaughn said...

Alex, who are you kidding? Kate may be in disguise but you'll enter her anyway. lol

Lydia K said...

I liked the movie Aliens, but a $25K statue? Really?

Wow.

REALLY?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

RaShelle, your hubs has good taste in TVs then! Mine's only fifty inch. Guess I need to step it up a bit.

Thank you, Vicki!

Mary, tune in January 1 - I just might surprise you!

Lydia - really!!!

Susan Fields said...

I must have that ice cube tray - love it!

Simon Kewin said...

Love the Cthulhu Plushie - somehow it doesn't look so scary as a soft toy ...

Stephanie M. Lorée said...

My local gaming store had a plush Cthulhu dice bag on display last time I was in. I nearly purchased it, but $20 or so was a lot for a dice bag...

I know, yes, I'm that kind of nerd.

Tara said...

Ha! Hubby would love that ice cube tray.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephanie, you sound like my wife - go ahead and be that kind of nerd!

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

I totally know someone who would want the bullet ice cubes. :)

Patricia Stoltey said...

That Bugatti is awesome, but I'm getting a Kindle...
