National Wormhole Day Blogfest!

Hosted by Stephen Tremp, Laura Eno, LG Smith.
 
What would you do or where would you go if you could traverse a wormhole through space or time just once? One safe round trip passage. In 100 words more or less, what you would do if you had a two-way ticket to traverse a wormhole?

Where would I go? Back thirty years so I could practice with guitar master Joe Satriani and be really good now? (Rock star might be too much.) Back two thousand years and meet Jesus? (Naw, I’ll see him in fifty years or so.) Maybe forward? I know - teleportation! I’ll go forward and bring back a teleporter. Then I can teleport my butt anywhere. Travel the world. Travel the universe. Go to the Pegasus Galaxy and help John Sheppard's team. Avoid the commute to work. I’m sold! The Ninja Captain is now free to move about the galaxy…

Anyone want to go for a ride?

Catch some good news? What’s your favorite animated film quote? Know any of the trivia? And if you could jump in that wormhole, where would you go?

Annalisa Crawford said...

Are you trying to tell me the Ninja Captain doesn't already have the gift of teleportation? Next you'll be telling me the tooth fairy isn't real! :-)

Suzanne Furness said...

DL's idea sounds great, I'll have to head over there. Love the scarf, having to dig out the warm clothes once more as the unseasonal weather freezes the UK again!

L.G. Keltner said...

Going forward to find a teleporter is sneaky but brilliant! I like it! As if you didn't already move quickly and stealthily enough!

Elsie said...

My favorite animated movie quote, if a Pixar movie can count, is from Toy Story, "Are you mocking me?" Love it!!!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

I'd ride with you Alex! Sheena ready to board Ninja Captain.

That scarf is just too cute. I mean ahem, manly. Can't wait to see the little guy in it. Will check out Angela's giveaway and I's probably just bust reality if I went through a wormhole and check out the greek myths myself.

Mark Koopmans said...

Ha, I love it :)

Mini-Alex is going to need his own Blog :)

I'd transport back to '38 and tell Chamberlain that the piece of paper meant no peace - and get back on the plane, ya plonker.

Anne said...

There's only one place I'd go and that's back. Back to the moment of Cromwells birth, where I'd drown the bugger before his first cry.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I'd definitely travel forward. No women's rights in the past so I wouldn't go there.

T. Drecker said...

That scarf is adorable! As for the teleporter - now I'm jealous. I hadn't thought of bringing things through the wormhole. :) I tend to be one step behind.

randi lee said...

Teleporting ahead to bring back a teleporter? Hah! Love it!

As for animated quotes... "You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious."

--Donkey in Shrek

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Love the scarf!

Ahh...getting the teleporter. Good idea!

Richard Hughes said...

A cute scarf for junior.

I've thought for a few minutes about where I'd like to go, but nothing seems more interesting than seeing the Battle of Gettysburg.

Adriana Dascalu said...

you went for John Sheppard, I went for Doctor Who. there's never enough adventure but a teleporter or the tardis should solve our constant need of adrenaline and adventure!

Patsy said...

Not sure I want to go through a wormhole - I'm happy and busy enough in the here and now.

Gail said...

A wonderful holiday to celebrate. I don't think I could chose one time or place to visit. Is hole hopping an acceptable term?

kmckendry said...

I love the scarf for Mini-Alex!

#5 is Within Temptation (Yay! I finally got one!)

That's a great idea to grab a teleporter, do you think you could bring more than one back?

Rusty Webb said...

I'd probably stand in the mouth of the wormhole and wonder what it would do to me if the thing collapsed.

And mt mind went blurry after I saw pantera on the list. They're all that matters anyway.

Sandra Almazan said...

Great scarf!

I think maybe I should travel back in time and sign up for the Wormhole Day Blogfest! How could I miss that? It looks like I could still post tomorrow, so I think I will.

Stephen Tremp said...

A teleporter...xthats smart. Like asking a geniee for unlimited wishes. Nicely done!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Annalisa, I hope you're not crushed!

LG, need more stealth...

Elsie, good choice!

Sheena, let's go. And yes, manly scarf.

Mark, don't encourage Mini-Alex like that!

Randi Lee, his whole monologue there was great.

Richard, from a distance I assume?

Gail, it's a funny one!

Kathy, you got one! And I'm willing to share.

Rusty, knew you'd get that one.

Sandra, it's open for two days - go for it!

Scribbles From Jenn said...

The Ninja Captain rocks again... a teleporter??? Genius!

My favorite animated movie quote changes based on my station in life. Since I'm in the middle of revisions, it's Dory's 'Just keep swimming' line from Finding Nemo. I'm repeating it daily.

Yvonne at Poetry from the Heart said...

Some very good topics here Alex. Still can't get the answers to the trivial.....perhaps one day.

Yvonne.

Laura Pauling said...

Love that line from Rango. Hilarious. :)

Laura Eno said...

I want a teleporter!!!!

L.G. Smith said...

Wow, mini Alex is getting his own doll clothes? Ha!

And you sneak! Going forward in time to get a teleporter is like wishing for three more wishes. Oh, but wouldn't that be cool to go back in time and learn guitar from some famous musician in their prime? I'd go for that.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Ah I don't know any of those five! I need to brush up on my album trivia. As far s my favorite animated movie quote: Does The Grinch count? "Christmas means just a little bit more".

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I'm impressed that someone could make a scarf that tiny. It's adorable. Mini-Alex is set for CA winters now (if that's all he wears). Come on, over!

xoRobyn

Brinda said...

Mini-Alex is getting pretty darn famous!

J. A. Bennett said...

I want to teleport too! That sounds awesome!

Old Kitty said...

"Your mother can't be with you anymore" Bambi.

Sniff, sob, bawl eyes out! Sniff!

:-(

take care
x

C.M.Brown said...

I just joined the Blog Blitz set up by DL Hammond, sounds like a great idea!

Your choices are good ones for the National Wormhole Blog Hop! Now who would have thought you would choose to find a teleportation device?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephen, I was planning ahead.

Jenn, good one!

LG, with a teleporter, I could go back and learn from the masters. And Mini-Alex is an action figure. I'll just ignore the doll comment.

Optimistic, good choice.

Kitty, so sad!

Heather M. Gardner said...

ALEX!

Computer Animated Film Quote.

From Madagascar 2:
Alex to Monkey: Slow down! You're gonna kill us! There's got to be another way! Pass it on!
[the monkey chain relays the message up to the plane]
Monkey to Marty: Don't slow down. Kill us. It's the only way. Basset Hound!

Trivia:
1. Nope
2. Soundgarden
3. Nope
4. Megadeath?
5. Nope

Maybe if you had mixed in some Metallica I would have rocked this.

Ninja Alex is on the loose!

Heather

Isis Rushdan said...

I could see that teleporter getting you into all sorts of trouble, especially if the wrong people found out you had one.

Jo said...

I'd certainly travel with you Alex. I didn't join the bloghop because I would have said back to see who really built Stonehenge and how. What else could I say. Certainly not 100 words

Love the scarf, will keep him warm.

Don't know your music.

JO ON FOOD, MY TRAVELS AND A SCENT OF CHOCOLATE

Angela Brown said...

Thanks so much for mentioning the giveaway, Alex. YAY!!!

I had to laugh at that animated quote. A number of hilarious phrases from Timon and Pumba of The Lion King are flopping about in my head. Just a matter of trying to peg one down lol!

If I could go anywhere in a wormhole? Oh dear...that could be just a tad too dangerous for the world.

S. L. Hennessy said...

Guitar practice with Joe Satriani sounds pretty awesome.

Shell Flower said...

I was thinking you might have a teleporter already, too. I guess the clones just make it seem like you are everywhere at once already. Rango was such a cute movie, love the quote. I can't wait to see mini Alex sporting his stylin' scarf!

LD Masterson said...

Love the mini scarf.

Maybe I'd go into the future so I could come back and warn my grandkids to avoid potential disasters.

Robyn Campbell said...

I'd love to go back and follow Jesus. Oh man. Then come back to this time with all kinds of proof so I could reach the masses before it was too late for them! Then I'd take another trip back to when I was a kid in Florida. My mom and dad and brother would still be alive and I would give them one last kiss and hug. (Of course some day I'll be able to do that, but I would love to do it now.)

Blog Blitz sounds really great!

Hope the music is good for you, my friend! :-)

Jemi Fraser said...

The Pegasus Galaxy is a great choice! I'm doing my wormhole post tomorrow :)

Julie Luek said...

You're right, we'll meet up with Jesus soon enough. But I wouldn't mind having a chat with Peter or Thomas. I can relate to their doubts even in the presence of holiness.

David P. King said...

A mini-scarf for mini-Alex? Epic win! :)

Summer Ross said...

I adore Rango, Alex! That's a great line from the movie too. LOL

Nicki Elson said...

You're so smart! Going forward and bringing something back. Oh, how I long for a teleporter.

Damyanti said...

I thought you already had one ? How else do you keep zipping from blog to blog at the speed of light? ;)

Love that mini-scarf, shall wait for the mini-Alex-photoshoot!

Tina said...

Totally dig the mini scarf for mini-Alex. Dang though, I missed the 100 words or less thing. My wormhole post is regular length. I wonder if they'll still let me take my trip...sigh. I really picked a good place.
Don't know any of those songs.

Can I go for a ride with you? Does the Ninja Captain have Byron's special ability? Being cryptic, wouldn't want to spoil that awesome reveal for those who haven't read CassaStar. People: if you haven't read it, get your butt to Amazon and buy it! And CassaStorm. Then you'll be all set for CassaFire in September. I don't usually boss people around (well, yes, I do all the time...) in someone else's comments...but you gotta read these books!

Michael Offutt, S.F.A. said...

My favorite animated quote is from Syndrome (The Incredibles):

"If everyone is super, then no one is."

I think it explains everything about why the U.S. is the way it is today.

M. J. Joachim said...

No cars, traffic and trouble finding parking spaces - I'm definitely up for your idea, Alex!

jaybird said...

Loving the scarf!

We have a lot of favorite animated quotes but "Megamind" is a movie that seems to get quoted a whole lot over here at the Bird's Nest.

Charles Gramlich said...

2 is soundgarden, I believe, and 3 is definitely Pantera

mshatch said...

I love the idea of traveling via wormholes - assuming they're stable of course! I'm afraid I don't know any of the album titles :(

As for an animated quote: "No capes!"
(The Incredibles)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Heather, next time!

Angela, you're welcome.

She'll, clones help.

Robyn, even with proof they won't believe,

Jemi, you got it!

Thanks, Tina! I don't have Byron's ability though.

Charles, correct!

Cherie Reich said...

The scarf looks awesome! What a great quote from Rango!

Julie Flanders said...

Love the mini-scarf, how fun is that?

Also love the idea of being able to avoid the commute to work. LOL that's almost the best thing about the teleporter! :D

Jeremy [Retro] said...

as great of a post this is and always is... i got stuck on the wormhole thought... i would like to jump back into my old self maybe 30 years with my current memories... and take a left instead of the right...

Arlee Bird said...

Those music album titles just tell me how out of touch with music I've been in the past couple decades. I'm still mostly listening to older stuff.

Hart Johnson said...

Ha! That's like wishing for more wishes, isn't it? teehee.

Matthew MacNish said...

I can't believe I only know two of those albums.

M.J. Fifield said...

I don't know any of those albums. I'm so much better at movie trivia than music trivia.

And I love that quote from Rango.

Melissa said...

Right now, if I could jump through a wormhole, I would go someplace the common cold does not exist. Ugh.

Cindy said...

I'd go to some tropical paradise type planet for a vacation.

Cindy said...

Jay Noel said...

I don't know, I think it would be really cool to meet Jesus.

And that scarf is awesome!!!

D.G. Hudson said...

The teleporter is a great idea, and then you could jam with whichever guitar master you want.

Picture this: suddenly a new face pops up on album covers from the past, and we're hearing about the great Rockin' Alex. It would only cause a minor tremble in the space-time continuum. Hopefully you'd still blog. . .

ilima said...

I'd wormhole my way to Pemberly and see if Mr. Darcy was home. Wait...what do you mean he's not real? Blasphemy!

Mark Means said...

Teleporter? Heck, I'm still waiting for jet packs!!

We were promised jet packs!! *shakes fist* :)

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Alex, did you hear about the golfer who fell into a sink hole? I wonder if he thought it was a black hole? Hmm.

Thanks for the Ninja news. Love the scarf. It'll come in handy if you come for a visit. It's snowing here. I know, yuck.

Nancy Thompson said...

It would be kind of cool to go forward & see if I enjoy any level of literary success. Or maybe go back & suggest to myself that start writing earlier. There are so many possibilities.

Donna K. Weaver said...

This has been such a fun blog hop to read. Some very different contributions.

roe2me said...

You're like the person who gets one wish before they're left on an abandoned island and you wish for a canoe to make your way home. A complete genius! A teleporter is a great thing to bring back.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex .. Deniz' mini Alex' scarf will be a delight to see - what fun.

I'd like to rise above and see how and why things happened .. so I'd have to go back - but I'd quite like to return to 2013 please! A turn in a teleporter sounds fun ...

Cheers Hilary

Johanna Garth said...

Mini-alex is going to be ab-fab :)

I love this wormhole blogfest. Part of me thinks that I'd like to go forward in time, learn as much as I could in two days and then come back and use that knowledge to help other people.

Terri Rochenski said...

I don't know any of those bands! *shame face*

My fav quote: 'Uncultured swine' hehehe

farawayeyes said...

Quote - "There's a snake in my boot" Woody from Toy Story, of course.

Absolutely no idea on those Rock Stars

I think I'll give in and join DL's Blog Blitz, he hasn't steered me wrong yet.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Julie, it is!

Jeremy, at left at Albuquerque?

Matthew, they were all big albums.

Jay, I get that teleporter, I can still meet Him.

DG, the blogging wouldn't change.

Joylene, funny!

Roe, thank you!

Faraway, good one.

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

Is that your final answer Alex? Make sure you don't change your mind too much and miss your round trip ride! :)

I do like your final answer. Just make sure you plant a little bit of yourself - you know, a strand of hair, a baby photo, or a set of your dentures - every place you visit.

Andrew Leon said...

How do you pick a favorite quote?
I have no idea.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Great idea about the teleporter! Glad you're planning on sticking around here for awhile as we would miss you too much. Very clever quote!

Julie

Lexie C. said...

Finding a teleporter somewhere in the future and bringing it back through the wormhole- fabulous idea!
I LOVE Rango- so many great quotes in that movie (plus it's just so dang cute!).

Melanie Schulz said...

Love the scarf, can't wait to see the picture of little Alex wearing it. As far as where to go if you could go anywhere, I couldn't even begin to pick.

Sherry Ellis said...

Mini-alex is like Flat Stanley. Maybe he should have his own series!

I'd go into the future. I'd be curious to see what the world will be like in a couple hundred years.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

You're like the guy who wishes for more wishes. Rule bender...I admire that.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Teleportation!!! - that's what I need from the future - that would be awesome!
I forgot the quote again . . . shucks. Hmm. One of my favorites . . . "Panda, we do not wash our pits in the Pool of Sacred Tears." Shifu speaking to Po in Kung Fu Panda.

~Sia McKye~ said...

I honestly haven't a clue where I'd go, Alex. Are there places or people I'd like to revisit? sure. Things in the universe I'd like to visit if I were able to do so safely? Absolutely. The wonders of the universe are phenomenal.

Okay, quotes...One that comes to mind is from Mulan--yes, I loved the film, lol! Mushu says, "I'm doomed and all 'cause Miss Man decides to take her little drag show on the road." The other one, from the same movie, Yao: "I'll get that arrow, pretty boy...AND I'll do it with my shirt on"

I'm getting interviewed by Tawny Weber on Romance Bandits tomorrow. Pretty cool. I don't get asked to do that very often. :-)

Sia McKye OVER COFFEE



Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nancy, I'll leave a clone behind.

Andrew, usually the first one that comes to mind.

Sherry, that would be funny if he did!

Elizabeth, my one rebellious streak...

Tyrean, good one!

Sia, and I am looking forward to reading your interview!

Christine Rains said...

Happy National Wormhole Day! I'd travel too. See all the wonders of the universe. Love Angela's idea of reviewer's appreciation.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

P.S. Now following you on Twitter!

Birgit said...

Love that movie quote. have no idea about any of the album titles. Great scarf and very sweet to send it to you. I would love to go back in time and see my grandparents when they were young and even my dad and mom(although she was in Germany and he was in Canada). Knowing me I would swat some bug and turn the world on its axis like Homer Simpson did:)

J.L. Campbell said...

Stopped in with Angela and will check out DL's group. Cool movie quote.

Leovi said...

Yes, DL Hammons of Cruising Altitude presents an interesting Blog Blitz

RaShelle Workman said...

"Just keep swimming." ~ Dory FINDING NEMO. Best quote ever.

Sandy Campbell said...

I like the teleportation!! That would be something...and why don't we have that now!! Enjoyed very much!

sandysanderellasmusings

Claire Hennessy said...

I'm sorry, but you must have some kind of teleporter/time travel thingy already otherwise how the hell do you manage the commenting and general blogging awesomeness?

Cute scarf. Look forward to the piccies of Mini-Alex.

Sangu Mandanna said...

I love that quote! And am totally failing on the album titles. *sigh*

nutschell said...

Smart move, Captain! Why didn't i think of that. Bringing back a teleporter would be sooo awesome!

klahanie said...

Aha, if I could go into a wormhole, I would wiggle around and eat dirt.

M Pax said...

Count me in on the teleporter rides! Sounds like a blast. Happy Wednesday :)

DL Hammons said...

Thank you for the shout out Alex! The BLITZ is up to 56 members and climbing quickly! :)

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Bravo! I think you've come up with the perfect wormhole solution.

(But if I were going to go back to play guitar with anyone, it would either be Hendrix or Segovia... or better yet, both! At the same time. Hey, it's my darned fantasy...)

Nigel Mitchell said...

I would use my wormhole to jump to the prehistoric era and see some dinosaurs.

Kym-n-Mark Todd said...

Of course, a teleporter! That's why you're the Ninja Captain.

And now we know what to ask for next Christmas.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Optimistic, thanks!

Birgit, don't do that!

RaShelle, almost used that one.

Claire, that's what the clones are for.

Gary - funny!

DL, that's awesome.

Susan, you play with whomever you like - it is your fantasy.

Kym-n-Mark, either that or clones.

Nickie said...

There's too many places to choose from from one wormhole trip! I'd be *that guy* that tears a hole in the fabric of space-time to try to squeeze out a second trip. Maybe I could grab a bite at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

The Happy Whisk said...

I'd go to the Old Country and visit my Hungarian grandmother's farm, back when she use to travel from village to village to sing. But I'd also want to bake with her and her mother.

Very cool about the mini Alex scarf. Looking forward to seeing a picture.

Cheers and boogie boogie.

LuAnn Braley said...

Teleportation huh? Well, when you get it working, let me know. I'd sure LOVE to zap those driving trips from Kentucky to Texas to visit the inlaws. Driving 16-20 hours with a spouse, 3 kids and multiple pets? Ewwww....

The Golden Eagle said...

A teleportation device would be awesome. Great choice!

Patricia Stoltey said...

I'd definitely book a wormhole experience if I could get to Australia and New Zealand without that terribly long flight.

lbdiamond said...

Hehehe. Love that quote from Rango!

National Wormhole Day? Cool!!!

Editors At Work said...

Thanks for posting about all the giveaways and links.

I would definitely go forward and see where I end up!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

That scarf is adorable!

I think I would go into the future, at least a thousand years.

And the second album is Soundgarden.

Poisoned Rose said...

Teleportation: definitely a winner for me. I agree. Traveling takes too much time; I can't wait for someone to invent a teleportation device already. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Whisk, that sounds cool.

LuAnn, that sounds awful.

Diane, you are correct.

Poisoned, as long as we all don't turn into the Fly.

Trisha F said...

I want to know how tiny that tiny little scarf is! hehe

Great idea for bringing back a teleporter! Lately I've really wanted one of those, like when I'm stuck in crowds after music festivals and so on.

Chuck said...

I think you would have been really great hanging with Joe S. and jammin'. He's amazing.

Number 2 is Soundgarden, 3 is PANTERA, and 4 I think is Megadeth.

Sure glad I managed to get by here today...I feel like I have missed so much on your site!

Robin said...

I like all of your ideas with the Teleporter. I think Forward might be hard to take in. We THINK we know what the future will look like but what if we are wrong? That could be very scary. I think I would rather go back and be here during the time that Jesus was alive. That would be Outstanding. Talk about having Blog Material. Woohoo. All those books in the Bible are translated. I would actually have the only NO NEED FOR TRANSLATION version of what Jesus actually said. It really doesn't get better that!!!

jamieayres.com said...

Love reading what everyone would do with a wormhole! I asked my students today and they had me cracking up!!

Rachna Chhabria said...

I thought that The Ninja Captain already had the gift of Teleportation (really disappointed). I will hitch a ride with you while you travel everywhere (atleast you will be assured of good company ;)

Melissa Bradley said...

Love that scarf! Deniz is so incredibly talented and Mini Alex is going to look like one sharp dressed ninja in that.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Great choices Alex!

You have been around to two different worlds already with me... REMEMBER? LOL.

I guess you should give other bloggers the chance for a ride with the Ninja captain. I had two FANTASTIC adventures with you!

Rachel Morgan said...

I don't remember that quote from Rango (I think I watched the movie in bits) but it's funny!

Jamie Gibbs said...

Favourite animated film quote? Dang, that's a tough one. I'd go for The Emperor's New Groove:

"Beware the Grooooooooove"

michelle said...

I've already signed up for the Blog Blitz! It's an awesome initiative!
I've also jumped into that wormhole...
Cute scarf!

Tara Tyler said...

did you figure out how it works?! i dont like the theories floating around this time period!

cute scarf! and the blog blitz is going to rock!

have an awesome thursday!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Trisha, we'll all soon find out.

Chuck, you are correct!

Robin, you'd have the original source material. And blog material - funny!

Jamie, clever to ask them.

Rachna, just clones.

Melissa, he will look sharp.

Michael, you should continue that series. Oh the places we could go...

Rachel, it's in the beginning, with the armadillo.

Jamie, funny line!

Tara, just like in my books, I have no idea how it works.

Elise Fallson said...

I'm sure Mini-Alex is rocking it in his new scarf! Too cute. (:

A Beer For The Shower said...

I'd go into the future where everyone is morbidly obese, connected to their cellphone 24/7, and shut off from one another completely, use it as a wake up call, then come home and enjoy life and the outdoors more. Oh, and sadly, I'd probably only have to go 50 years into the future to see this.

Bish Denham said...

I love the quote from Rango. Don't know any of the trivia (does that age me?) As for wormhole travel... Is there a time and place on earth without wars and murder? That's where I'd like to go. Oh yeah... I'd have to go back to Eden.

Al Diaz said...

Teleporter? I have been wanting one of those toys my whole life. Of course being a dragon, it wouldn't be so easy to travel everywhere but then probably I could find the store where invisibility cloaks are sold. Maybe across the streets from the Teleporter Radio Shack. Then we're all set!

E.J. Wesley said...

Deniz is good people! Mini-Alex is going to be styling. :-)

C. Lee McKenzie said...

Here's to Angela. She's on my blog today, as you know. Isn't she the happiest person you've met?

As to the wormhole . . . I'd go back and have some time with my grandmother. She had so much to share with me when I was young. I should have listened more carefully!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Bryan and Brandon, you might not have to go that far to find such a WALL-E world.

Bish, that's about the only place, unless you want to go to the future earth after Revelations.

Al, you would be invincible!

Lee, she's always happy and positive!

Ella said...

I wanna go help John Sheppard ;D lol

I love Mini Alex's scarf, soon he will need a swimming suit!

Yes, Ninja's need a lot of air space to kick around~

EvalinaMaria said...

I'll go for a ride with you! Before I do I have to go back in time to check my roots - am I part of an alien?

Evalina, This and that...

Susan Kane said...

I'll take the fast-forward ticket in the worm hole! I would like to see what my grandkids will be in their forties. All the angst and struggles of early years will be over, and they would be hopefully adults with perspective.

Cartoon quote: Spear and magic helmet!

Mark Noce said...

Very cool, love going through time to play guitar! Also, I cracked up on the Jesus joke (50 years from now indeed) :)

Carrie-Anne said...

I'd want to go into the future in the wormhole. As much as I'd love to change some past events, that would mean I'd no longer be able to write books featuring those events and their consequences! I'd like to see if we'll have space colonies and a terraformed Moon and Mars by the year 3000. It would also be interesting to see what happens to Planet Earth when the Sun becomes a Red Giant, though it would be really depressing if I found out the planet meets a fiery death and humanity doesn't escape into space.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ella, if Mini-Alex is like me, then the poor dude is white as a sheet under his Ninja clothes!

Mark, I'm counting on my life only being half over.

A thousand years is a big jump, Carrie-Anne.

Hildie McQueen said...

Not sure where I'd go in a wormhole, maybe to the wild west and spend the day at the Ponderosa Ranch! Or to 100 years into the future to see what I'm going to miss.

Monti said...

Travel the universe! I love the concept!

By the way I saw your Tweet last night about Google Reader. Would you care to address this is in your next post for those of us who aren't really sure what this means for our blogs? :) I have tried to research it and I am very confused lol.

Carrie Butler said...

Yes! This is an excellent way to use a wormhole. :D

DMS said...

I have always wanted to teleport- so I LOVE your idea. Think of all the time it would save. :)

Awesome Ninja News!

I'm such a history nerd, I'd want to travel like crazy. I think meeting Shakespeare would be on the top of my list. And I wish I could remember some animated movie quotes to tell you, but today I'm so tired my brain is like a sieve.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Yes, yes, John Shepherd. I so miss that show and the Pegasus galaxy.

Medeia Sharif said...

I wish teleportation happened now.

I joined the Blog Blitz.

My favorite animated movie quote, if a Pixar movie can count, is from Toy Story, "Are you mocking me?" Love it!!!

Bossy Betty said...

OK, I gotta say, I love that quote too!

This is a tough answer, since I'm maybe one of the few folks who just wouldn't leave this day and time if you paid me! If I HAD to time travel (the prospect makes me nervous!), I think I'd want to live a day in the 1950's, just for the contrast.

Cynthia said...

The idea of going back into time is so tempting...I know so much now I didn't know back then. But all the lessons I learned back then brought me to where I am today.

Though I only live a mile from work, it would still be nice to skip the commute. Please share your knowledge :)

Mina Burrows said...

Go Angela. I hope I'm not too late for that.

That scarf is so flipp'n cute!

Samantha May said...

2. Superunknown is Soundgarden

...that's all I've got :)

Also, you are a genius with the teleporter thing. I tip my invisible hat to you, Mr. Ninja.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Optimistic, mentioned it Friday and will do full update on Monday.

Jess, exactly!

Susan, one of the best shows ever.

Laurie, awesome!

Colby, if not for the teleporter, I wouldn't want to go forward and leave now either.

Lynn, I will!

Samantha, you got it! And thank you.

Deniz Bevan said...

Happy to do it! Thanks for the lovely comments all :-)

Slightly embarrassed that I could only name one of the bands... (It was Megadeth) Off to check out who the others were!

Deniz Bevan said...

No wait - I know the Soundgarden one too. The others, not so much...

Donna Hole said...

A teleporter would help me get to work on time :)

.......dhole

Jennifer Lane said...

Teleporter! Sounds way cool. Have fun exploring.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Deniz, got two!

Donna, a teleporter would keep me from wanting to kill other commuters on the way to work.
