CassaFire Tour Day Five, Ninja News, Trivia, and Random Stuff!

This is the party that never ends from the Ninja who never sleeps!

No really, I like my sleep. I may sleep until noon on Saturday…

Today’s awesome stop - Michael Offutt!

I found Michael’s blog last year through the Pay it Forward Blogfest. (See, blogfests do pay off!) Michael is also a science fiction writer and his first book comes out soon. I’m also kicking off Michael’s blog tour for Slipstream in May. So hopefully the A to Z Challenge doesn’t wear everyone out, because you won’t want to miss it!

Don’t forget that everyone who comments here on my blog over the next two weeks will be entered to win this cool prize package from my publisher. So be sure to comment every single day!
Ninja News

Thanks to everyone who visited Elana Johnson yesterday for my interview. She is just awesome.

Weird things have been happening since the changes with Google and Blogger took effect – anyone else notice?

A Daft Scot Lass posted a list of things that indicate you are addicted to blogging at her SITE. It’s hilarious – you need to read it!

Apple has a BIG announcement coming next Wednesday! It better be the release date of the iPad 3!

Jessica Therrien’s book Oppression came out as well on Tuesday. So yes, we are both responsible for the Internet meltdown that day. Congratulations, Jessica!

Lynnette Labelle has a list of commonly misused words for writers.

Random Ninja Fact

Since my Ninja facts have been silly all week, thought I’d give you a serious one. The most poignant thing I’ve learned as a Christian (relationship not religion – big difference) besides the fact I am loved and forgiven is that to truly love God, one must also love God’s people. Believe it or not, that used to be one of my struggles. (And if you drive really slow in front of me, I still struggle!)

Trivia answers from yesterday:

1 – Where is Australia’s Northern Territory capital? Darwin
2 – Where does the Detroit River end? Lake Erie
3 – What city holds Mary Queen of Scots’ throne? Edinburgh
4 – Where does the Hope Diamond rest? Washington, DC

Trivia Time – Movie Quotes!

All right, let’s try movies again. Name the movie…

1 – “Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?”

2 – “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

3 – “Charging a man with murder in this place was like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.”

4 – “Son, your ego’s writing checks your body can’t cash.”

5 – “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”

Anyone else experiencing weird blogging things? Excited about the iPad 3? Get yesterday’s trivia right? Know any of today’s questions? Come on! A couple are really easy…

Now – go visit Michael Offiutt!


The Angry Lurker said...

1.Raiders of the Lost Ark.
2.Ferris Beullers Day Off.
3.Apocalypse Now.
4.Top Gun.
5.Cool Hand Luke.

Ciara said...

I had blogging issues all week. Strange things while visiting people and my sidebar wouldn't load correctly. Your image was there, but not showing. :( I'm headed over to Michael's blog. He's such a supportive guy. I can't wait for his debut novel to be released.

Old Kitty said...

It's good to love and show love to all! Yes - even to the person walking at glacial pace infront of me as they text and not look where they are going. Yes - you, I love you too! Or the woman not picking up their dog's doo-doo. I love your dog more!


Erm... pass on the trivia quiz questions but they all sound so familiar...

Take care

Tonja said...

I saw all the movies but only knew the first one.

Brinda said...

That snakes line is one of my favorites! I'll visit you at Michael's.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Lurker, you're good!

Ciara, everyone has had problems it seems.

Kitty, that's what I'm talking about!

Bryan Russell said...

I think that last movie line is also used in Independence Day...

And that cover for Oppression is pretty slick.

Laura Pauling said...

Okay, so what weird things? That reminds me, I keep forgetting to take down the GFC badge on my sidebar. Kind of looking forward to it actually. :)

S.A. Larsenッ said...

So glad your party is still going strong!! Have a fabulous weekend. You deserve it.

Huntress said...

Ditto what Lurker said. Yes. I. Cheated. *hangs head*

Great words on Christians and their faith. I agree about the slow drivers and would add yelling at the TV during this season of politics.

And I get Shopping Cart Rage when people block the aisle at the store.

Sangu Mandanna said...

Yay for the tour! And I wish I could sleep till noon...

And the first quote is Raiders of the Lost Ark! I'd know Indiana Jones anywhere. Though I may well have gotten the actual movie wrong. I just know he said it :-)

PR said...

1: Snakes on a Plane (best movie ever!)
2: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
3: Apocalypse Now
4:Hmm I can hear the guy saying it but can't picture the movie.
5: It's the start of a Gun's and Rose's song, that's all I know :P

PR said...

No wait 1 is wrong lol I take it back, dammit it's Indiana Jones

Anonymous said...

Excellent selections, Alex!!

1. Raiders of the Lost Ark
2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
3. Apocalypse Now
4. I swear I almost typed Days of Thunder instead of the actual movie, which is Top Gun.
5. Cool Hand Luke

Again, great choices!!!

I'm excited for the iPad3, but I'm always excited about new tech.

Lastly, I'm linking over to you today; just going to hijack a CassaFire image first.

Jeremy [Retro] said...

the great retro-zombie knows all, alex you must slowdown... or you will explode like the deathstar, but not the original deathstar... no like the digitally enhanced deathstar in the second release with new footage.... oh yeah, the trivia... nailed it like the deathstar to alderaan.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Bryan, I think you're right!

Huntress, forgot about shopping cart rage!

Sangu, you got it!

Anna, you got two of them. But I see you caught yourself and got three!

Joshua, that made me laugh! And I'm always excited about tech toys. Linking to me today? Wow, thank you!!!

Jeremy, thanks for the laugh!

Christine Danek said...

You're party rocks. Love the movie quotes I could only get three though. Ferris Bueller is one of my favs.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Dang. Angry Lurker got the answers first. Ah well. I almost missed four anyway. I'm so excited about the A-Z challenge!

Luanne G. Smith said...

I think I actually knew most of those movie lines this time. Score!

And you deserve to sleep until noon tomorrow. Take a day off and enjoy your weekend.


Enjoying a great party this week Alex. Thanks.


Rusty Carl said...

What the Lurker said. I've heard complaints about bloggers changes and notice everyone is mobile friendly now, but ive not paid any closer attention.

Jai Joshi said...


I find it hard to love God's people when they drive slow in front of me too!

That first quote is Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. And I KNOW the last one but I can't remember the name. It's gonna bug me all day now.


Matthew MacNish said...

I can never decide which part of your posts to comment on, so I think I'll just slink off to Michael's blog ...

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Knew I had Edinburgh right.

And loving God, His people, ourselves - it's all entwined.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Yes, Blogger has been bizarre lately. Although that's really normal for Blogger....

Cindy said...

I know what you mean about blogger. For a minute there, I thought coming here was going to lock up my computer because it took forever to load.

The only quote I really knew was the first one. #5 was familiar, even though I never saw that movie. I'm so not good at this.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Christine, it's a classic.

Maurice, he really got the jump on them today!

LG, you know I'll be here online for some of it.

Rusty, yesterday's traffic just really dropped, which was weird.

Jai, we both need lasers on our cars then! And you are correct.

Cindy, sorry! Might be due to the fact by sidebars are a little full...

Bossy Betty said...

Great to catch up with you, Alex! Yes, please do get some sleep!

Rick Daley said...

Is the failure to communicate line also in Full Metal Jacket? For some reason adding "Private Pyle" to the end of that sounds right to me...

Rek Sesh said...

I give up on your movie bros may have a better shot at it.
Sorry missed yest...was tied up. That blog addiction thing will be true for me...I blogged more during my break last month than in Jan. :)
Will slip into Micheal's stream now and give the bonnie lass a shake up.

Marta Szemik said...

Got the first two movies. BTW, have you seen Matthew Broderick' new Honda commercial (ok, not so new-it's been out for about a month now). Most brilliant marketing I've seen in a while.
Ok, heading to Michael's now...

Leovi said...

It welcomes the book Jessica Therrien, Oppression

Anonymous said...

I have heard about people having blogger problems all week. I wasn't really affected by it until today. Blogger wouldn't let me sign in!

Karen Baldwin said...

Get a good rest this weekend, you deserve it. I'm heading over to Michael's now.

Budd said...

I can now post on blogs that I couldn't for whatever reason before. so, I, for one, am enjoying the blogger changes.

1. Raiders of the lost ark. That was actually referenced at work yesterday. I mentioned that they were all ball pythons and corn snakes though.
5. Cool Hand Luke. I challenge you to a boiled egg eating contest.

M.J. Fifield said...

I DO know the answers to some of today's trivia questions. #1 is Snakes on a Plane!

No, just kidding.

1. Raiders of the Lost Ark

2.Ferris Bueller's Day Off

4. Top Gun

5. Cool Hand Luke

Enjoy sleeping until noon tomorrow. I dare say you've earned it.

Rachna Chhabria said...

Hi Alex, Congrats. So far I have been hopping over to all the blogs hosting CassFire. I finally reached your doorstep. Whew. How did you manage such a hectic blog tour. a few days I will be in touch with you regarding a guest post for my blog (that is if you are okay with it.)

Christopher Hudson said...

How about this movie line: "He's an employee I had to let go ..."

Mina Burrows said...

Are you getting a iPad 3? I just got 2 and had no desire to wait for a 3. I am interested to hear the announcement.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Betty, I will!

Rick, I'm sure it's been used in many movies. The one I selected is the oldest.

Shake him, Rek!

Marta, I dug that commercial! Took me right back to the 80's.

Jeremy, what browser do you use? Once I switched to Firefox I stopped having problems.

Budd, can't do the boiled egg contest. Glad you're commenting again!

MJ, you got four!

Rachna, thanks - I'd be honored!

Christopher - Jackie Brown!

Mina, oh yeah! I'm getting one.

Karen Lange said...

Thanks for the info, links, and revelation. I promise not to drive slow in front of you unless of course, the speed limit is slow. :P

Here's my attempts at the movie quotes -

1) The first Indiana Jones movie?

2) Ferris Bueller's Day Off

3) Can't place it

$) I just saw this and can't remember the name! Rats.

5) I know this. I really do. I know I'll remember these all later today.

Heading over to Michael's place. Happy weekend!

Karen Jones Gowen said...

Seriously Alex? You sleep?

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Oh Em Gee! I fell so flattered for you to have dedicated a shout out to wee me!

Thanx Alex, You ROCK!

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Oh Em Gee! I fell so flattered for you to have dedicated a shout out to wee me!

Thanx Alex, You ROCK!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Karen, I do like the way you guess!

Karen G... no.

Lass, you are welcome!

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

Eeep. My last name is spelled Offutt. No "i" in there.

But that's okay. No one spells my last name right. I sure hope my publisher does when the artwork gets done. That would be disappointing if my last name was all messed up.

Cherie Reich said...

I love that line from Indiana Jones (#1 of trivia). *grins*

Ah, the days to sleep to noon. I wonder what it would be like to go back there.

Empty Nest Insider said...

I actually knew some of the answers this time! Thanks Alex!

Belle said...

Alex, I've tried to buy your book for my Sony ereader but can't seem to find out where to do that. Barns and Noble don't have it in Nook (I'm not really sure I can use Nook) and Amazon only has it in Kindle. Maybe you know what I can do? Thanks.

Shallee said...

Just wanted to say congrats on your book release! Looking forward to reading it, and wish you the best of luck.

And my movie quote knowledge is woefully inadequate on this trivia...I only know #1, Indiana Jones. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Crap! Sorry, I'll fix it Michael. And yes, wrong on your book would SUCK.

Cherie, I hope to find out.

Julie, anytime.

Hey Belle! It should be available from those soon.

Shallee, thank you! Hope you enjoy it.

kjmckendry said...

I only know:
1. Indiana Jones--I love that line!!
4. Top Gun
I might be the only person who never saw Ferris Bueller!

I'm excited for iPad 3! :)

Johanna Garth said...

I believe that you barely sleep! Love your random ninja fact today. My advice is to NEVER visit Portland because your biggest challenge will be made even bigger. *sssslllooowwwwddddrrriiiivvveerrs*

N. R. Williams said...

Hi Alex
Another stellar day. Indiana Jones is looking for something, I think it's the Arch of the Covenant. I am using #4 with my children who think my money is free.

It is difficult to love others, both Christians and unbelievers, I know. But when they pull out in front of me, I need a chill pill. Good thing Jesus is All to His believers. Seriously though, it was good to read what you said.

I see you at the other blog.

Jessica Therrien said...

Thanks so much for the mention, Alex! Congrats on a successful day/week of internet domination.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

I only recognize Raiders of the lost ARc. But Lurker gave me the rest.
Off to read your Elana interview.

Andrew Leon said...

yes! Why do they feel the need to fix things that aren't broken? Because, now, they are broken! I don't even have the option of telling you anymore that I'm choosing to not subscribe to comments because it isn't an option anymore! SO annoying!

And I wish I could say that I'd check bac later to see your response to this, but the truth is I probably just won't remember to do it. :(

Leigh Covington said...

I'll be stopping by Michael's today! Can't wait!

Unknown said...

Yea, mine's gone a bit nuts and now my blogger profile has become my Google+ profile. Not sure what's going on.

Carol Kilgore said...

I haven't noticed anything different about Blogger. Hope that doesn't mean I'm in for a double whammy.

Happy Weekend!

MISH said...

Alex , your party is TOP SHELF!
I'm having problems too... technical ones... oh well, that's more-or-less normal for me. LOL!

Nancy Thompson said...

I love Michael and his Pat It Forward blogfest was fantastic. Great interview, Alex. I missed yesterday's post. I'll go check out Elana's next.

And I totally agree on your Ninja fact. (Look behind you, that's me on your tail!)

1. the 1st Indiana Jones flick
2. Ferris Bueller
3. no idea
4. I've heard this one
5. this one too. total mind fart.

Party on, Alex! Have a relaxing weekend.

Tara Tyler said...

top gun
cool and luke

4/5 aint bad and i loved your interview w/ michael!

Christine Rains said...

Sleep, ninja. You deserve it. Have a great weekend!

I have Contagion to watch tomorrow. Everyone's been saying it's good.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Sleep before you burn out, Alex. A brain-dead Ninja is no fun! Congrats on the rising sales of CASSAFIRE! I am rooting for you to do even better! Roland

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kmc, you need to watch it!

Johanna, crossing it off my list now...

Thank you, Nancy! I just spoke how I feel.

Terry, cheating...

Andrew, that's all right - I forget to do it as well.

Carol, hope you're good to go.

Nancy, that's two. And Matthew and I were the ones who hosted the Pay it Forward blogfest.

Tara, four!

Patsy said...

Ooooh, I think I know a trivia answer - the snakes thing is Indiana Jones!

Emily R. King said...

I knew the first line! It was Indiana Jones. And I swear, I know two or three more, but I can't remember.

I'm off to Michaels!

ediFanoB said...

I really, really appreciate your endurance. I'm sure you will need some days off after the end of the blog tour.

Anyway I will visit every blog stop and leave a comment.

You did a great job with the organisation of the tour and the accompanying post on your blog.

It is definitely a remarkable event (the blog tour).


Laura said...

have a good lie-in Alex! you deserve it :)

DL Hammons said...

Yes...I have noticed something buggy about Google and Blogger this week! Grrrrr!!

Suze said...

Al, I got your book, today! I read the first chapter in my car as I was in the pick up line for my daughter. :) :)

I like your random ninja fact. I'd probably raise your ire on the road since I drive like an old lady. Ha!

Have a great weekend -- and thanks to your publishers for the book, bookmarkers and postcards!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thank you, Roland!

Patsy, that's right.

Emily, you'll remember on Monday.

Thanks, Edi. Your stop was still the best.

DL, good it's not just me!

Suze, I couldn't be mad at you for driving slow. And so glad you got my book!!

Jocelyn Rish said...

I was stopping by as part of my rounds to say thanks to all the kind folks hosting the A to Z challenge (thanks!), and I discover you're the same Alex who took over the blogging world this week along with Jessica (I was one of her launch hosts and kept seeing your book everywhere - congrats!) And I am REALLY looking forward to the ipad 3 release. I haven't succumbed to the e-reader craze yet, so this will be my first foray into the brave new world.

Kela McClelland said...

Here are my answers:
2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (One of my absolute favorite movies )
4. Top Gun
5. Major Payne (I scrolled through and saw people said a different movie, but I don't know that movie.)
Anyway, those are the movies I remember those lines from

Off to Michael's blog now

One more thing-you should so sleep until noon tomorrow. Even the most awesome ninja needs a little rest :)

M Pax said...

I only know the first one, Raiders of the lost ark.

Yes, on weird blogger. My page just won't load right.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey, Jocelyn! Thanks for stopping by and so glad you're participating in the challenge. And you will DIG the iPad - trust me!!!

Kela, you got two, and yes, I will sleep.

Mary, I'm sorry!

D.G. Hudson said...

Take naps, Alex. Twenty minutes is supposed to be restorative.

Movie Q's - I knew #1 and #5, but didn't remember that #5 was used in Independence Day until I read Bryan's comment. Was it in the surgical scene?

Party on, author.

mshatch said...

1. Indiana Jones
2. Ferris Beuler
3. Blade Runner?
4. unk.
4. Shoot. I know this one. I do! It's ...Cool Hand Luke?

fun :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I did get one of the questions from yesterday right and I know the first movie quote today. Amazing.
I hadn't noticed anything extra weird on blogger today but I've noticed other people talking about it.

Jemi Fraser said...

Woohoo! I finally know an answer ... I think. It IS Raiders of the Lost Ark... isn't it??? :)

Cat Lavoie said...

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of my favorite movies so I recognized the quote right away... but *hangs head in shame* I didn't get any of the others. Guess I need to watch more movies! ;) Congrats on the blog tour Alex!

Lydia Kang said...

You really are on fire with this tour!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

DG, not sure!

MsHatch, you got three.

Jemi - yes!!

Thanks, Cat.

Lydia, just hope I don't get burned.

Sommer Leigh said...

I've had computer problems all week so I'm glad to finally be able to come congratulate you on an awesome blog tour so far! I can't wait to read CassaFire!

Chuck said...

I think I know four of them:

1. Indiana Jones (one of the movies)
2. ??
3. Apocalypse Now
4. Top Gun
5. Cool Hand Luke

Got CassaFire in the mail today, all autographed and was a long day at work today so I am only 60 pages in but tomorrow I'll be at it full bore! So far so great!!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Man, I wish I could get some sleep like that. Those were the days!

Love that quote from Indiana Jones, BTW. :)

Unknown said...

Alex, you must be getting so tired! I feel for you! I believe you have Aced this book launch! Congratulations once again! said...

I was going to guess Snakes on a Plane (as did Anna did) for number one. It just makes sense.

Sorry I've been so slow to drop by this week, Alex. I'd like to blame blogger, so I will.


Pat Tillett said...

Hey there! No triva answers for me. I was too busy reading CassaFire! I'm a happy reader right now!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Gotta love Indy's issue with snakes. lol

I'll try not to dry slow in front of you. ;)

I'm off to Michael's.

Sarah Tokeley said...

A day late and a dollar short as usual, but I finally got to your interview with Michael. He's one of my favourite people in the blog world :-)

Shannon Lawrence said...

I hope you really do sleep in tomorrow (today?) A.M.!

1. Indiana Jones (there's an amusing play on this in Mystery 2, where he says "Why did it have to be lizards? Why couldn't it have been snakes?" or something like that.

2. Bueller, Bueller, Bueller

3 & 5 sound so familiar to me that I know I'm going to smack myself in the forehead when you post the answers. I also figure I'll sit bolt upright in bed at some point tonight, with the answers having popped into my head. Yeah, that's why I'm an insomniac.

4. Top Gun

Unknown said...

I'll remember not to drive slow in front of you. :)


Raiders of the Lost Ark
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Apocalypse Now (?)
Top Gun
Cool Hand Luke

Weird blogging things...someone named Andi leaving "That's great" on all my posts.

Unknown said...

I love your random ninja fact! Whenever I'm driving behind a taxi (a South African minibus taxi. The ones that terrorize the roads) I remember the pastor from our church reminding us that we're supposed to love taxi-drivers too!
Yeah. It's tough!

mooderino said...

So the Hope diamond is in Washington? I feel a caper coming on.


Unknown said...

Alex, I'm in awe! The Ninja Captain is showing us all how an endless blog party is done :)

All the best for your book!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Sommer, thanks - really sorry you've had issues.

Chuck, you got the four! Awesome you got the book and wow, already sixty pages in? Glad you're enjoying it.

Stephanie, well it's 8:30 am on Saturday, so guess I don't get that kind of sleep anymore either.

CM, thanks.

Robyn, that's all right. We'll blame Blogger.

Pat, that's awesome - glad you're enjoying it!

Shannon, you got three. And if you remember, come back!

Melissa, you rock the trivia, and that is odd.

Rachel, you can relate!!!

Thanks, Damy.

And thank you everyone.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Love your Ninja fact for today! Thanks for sharing!

Trivia Questions -
1. Indiana Jones
2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
3, 4, and 5 - ? Except I know I should know number 5. Time to scroll up the comments and see if anyone else knew it.

Cate Masters said...

Hope you got some sleep, Alex! :)
Ha, that Indy line about snakes always makes me chuckle. Until I see one in my yard!
Great lines. I can hear the actor for #5 but can't remember the movie.

Leovi said...

Yes, very interesting blog of Michael Offutt.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Tyrean, you got three of them!

Cate, I'm not crazy about snakes either.

Tonja Drecker said...

I just found out about your book (and blog) and can't wait to get my hands on it.
Congratulations and good luck with it!

Paul Joseph said...

Congratulations on the book launch, Alex! I hope you slept until noon today.

Unknown said...

*Huge sigh* Will you ever forgive me, Alex??? I dedicated my weekly post to you, CassaFire (and Jessica, too!). Congrats, big cyber hugs, and I wanted to let you know I'm sorry to have missed the party! All my best, Candy

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Candy, like Alex said in your blog, you recovering from spinal surgery is more important than blogging!!

Alex, you rest this weekend. You have pushed yourself beyond even Ninja limits!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Your friendship made my blogging special, Roland

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

T Drecker, thank you!!

Paul, thanks, and no, I was up before nine.

Candy, I saw that and I really appreciate it! I'm sure Jessica does as well. Thank you so much.

Roland, rested some, but still going. And thank you for your kind words.

RaveAir said...

I'm not really excited about the iPad3, because I'm a happy owner of iPad2 and can't see any good reason why I had to buy a 'better' device. Can the provide much more entertainment than iPad3.

And if I have some spare money I would buy an android tablet. Unfortunatelly there're to many restrictions in the Apple devices. :(

Film trivias always good. It's shame, but I was sure only the first one. Maybe next time...

Leslie S. Rose said...

First time stopping by - shamefully overdue. I've enjoyed your comments around the blogosphere. CassaFire looks wonderful. Caught the trailer on C.Lee McKenzie's blog.

James Garcia Jr said...

Hey, Alex! You've been busy as always! *laughs* I see your posts as they hit my inbox, but just don't get enough time to visit as often as I would like.
The only quote out of that batch of film trivia you gave us was that I didn't know was the middle one. Apocalypse Now, was it? I knew the other four for sure.
I love your Ninja fact. I love how you point out that it is a relationship. So right!
Take care of yourself and much success with those books!


Debra Harris-Johnson said...

Great Party!!! I couldn't ever imagine you NOT loving everyone. You are so genuine and loving.

Anonymous said...

Alex, congratulations on CassaFire! I've recommended it to my nephew. I think he will love it.

Regarding Blogger issues, glad I'm not alone!

Tara Tyler said...

i forgot to ask, what is your christian relationship definition?
and i am a poor christian exanple in traffic =( slow drivers help me work on atience! *she says thru gritted teeth*

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

RaveAir, I'm just a tech junkie with cash to spare!

Leslie, thank you for visiting!

James, same here - just too many friends. And it is a relationship, one I'm blessed to have.

Debra, I've come a long way.

Liz, thank you! And no, things were weird this week, especially on Thursday.

Rick Watson said...

Alex, you are one busy dude. I write daily, but when I read your blog, I feel like a slacker :)

Gwen Gardner said...

I suck at movies - I didn't know any of those. Give me something on Harry Potter, though.......

Hope Roberson said...

Love movie trivia :) I knew #1,2,4:
Indiana Jones
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
? I see it's Apocalypse Now
Top Gun
I've heard it and probably quoted it without knowing it was Cool Hand Luke :)
Congrats on your book! I've requested my library carry a copy :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Life, you are definitely not a slacker!

Gwen, you'd probably beat me at that trivia.

Hope, thank you!! And you got them all.

Unknown said...

Love Michael's blog, pop in there often. Have been noticing blogger issues as well. Could not have the a-z challenge banner on the top because I could not share my blog on Facebook and having trouble sharing it on google+ as well. Even changed my format hoping that would help. Hopefully it will get straightened out soon.

Leovi said...

Yes, I think I'm addicted.

Ellie Garratt said...

Ferris Bueller! I love that film!

So thrilled your blog tour is rocking the blogosphere. I'm going through your posts backwards, starting with today. Crazy, I know.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Siv, I was able to share my post last week on Google+ with Jeremy's banner in place, so not sure.

Ellie, thank you for viewing them!

Rick said...

There are laws against sleeping until noon on Saturday, Alex! Now I'm off to visit Michael's blog. Thanks for the heads up.

dolorah said...

Oh boy, do I love your #4 quote. Was pretty sure #1 was Raiders of the Lost Arc, but the rest I didn't know where I'd heard them.

Slow drivers challenge me too :)

I haven't been very good at keeping up the blogging thing every day. Can't believe I missed Michael on Friday too. I loved his Slipstream book. Interesting concepts.

I doubt I'll comment on the posts I've missed here, but I will definitely go visit the host sites :)


dolorah said...

Oh yeah; blogger and google have played havoc with me. You know how distressing it is to click on your google reader, and it says you are not following any blogs? Should I use that as an excuse for blogging and comment lapses over the last couple weeks?


Allison said...

I only recognize the first one from Raiders of the Lost Ark! Good ol' Indiana Jones. And thanks for describing being a Christian as relationship, not religion; that's how I see it too.

Okay, I knew Raiders of the Lost Ark and Cool Hand Luke. I was scarred by the second movie. It horrified me people could treat other people that way! I like what you said about being a Christian and having trouble loving people. A common malady for all of us, I think. God is so much nicer than people. I think I love people now too, ( through lots of prayer) but it took awhile. :)
