730 days of fun …… We Are TWO!

 

golden-anniv

On special occasion and also whenever I feel sick and physically down, I start to contemplate and “take stock” of things in my life. The past month was one of those periods for me. Trying to determine if what I keep myself busy with, is worth while? Lots of my time revolve around Alex, being here on the blog and roaming online, to see what is happening with other people that show interest in Alex. Question is, “Is that good or bad?” 😕

For me it is not just about Alex, but it is about what I get from it. From him personally I will most probably never get anything. Living on the other side of the world and with zero chance of ever meeting him, expecting anything like that would be a bit crazy. Maybe a dream, but with me being a realist above all, just a dream………

So what is then in it for me, to be part of social media, and also this blog? During the past 2 years, I have had endless hours of fun together with Paula, working on stories, studying pictures and everything we could find interesting around Alex. I could not even begin to express how much it enriched my life over the past 2 years. And above it all, I have made a dear friend. At this moment in time, Paula is my best friend! 🙂

 

Two and a half years ago, on my quest to find other Alex-fangirls that I can interact with, I discovered a bunch of wonderful ladies (Paula included) on a site called Sardonic. Unfortunately our funny and unusual time on there was short-lived and we all went our different ways. A few of us started our own projects – like AOLww, which me and Paula still follow and support. Fangirling is about having fun and enjoying the pretty and the talent of our “subject” and we like to support anyone who keeps the Alex-fun going.

 

Thank you to everybody who so generously like, share and retweet our posts.

Thank you to everybody who so regularly comment on our posts. You always make the fun so much better for us.

Thank you to the ladies who allowed us to share their personal Alex fangirl stories on here. Those post have all been a lot of fun!

Thank you to anybody who has ever helped us with any of our projects. And there I want to specifically thank my dear friend LuRxgirl for all the Steve-0 and Mick-0 fun during this past year. You are a great friend, close to my heart!!

I am hoping these words from Alex are true: “I don’t google myself. It’s awful. I’m sure you understand.”. Because  if he did google himself, Alex, might just be horrified at the idea that after 2 years, we are still around – studying him ‘intensely‘ . But while we are still having fun with him and his work, we will be here, looking at every mole, hole and bulge we can find. 😀

It warms my heart whenever I look around the Alex-world and see all of Paula’s pretty creations of Alex reposted.

Happy Two-year Anniversary to us!

And thank you all, for all the fun!!

  11. Happy Birthday! Wow has it only been 2 yrs?

    I’m not as into intensely studying his moles, holes and bulges (ok maybe the bulges) but I’ve always enjoyed the way our sites (and us) work together. Especially Paula, showing me how to make gifs!! We help each other out with videos, ideas and know how. We’re so busy keeping our own sites up that we don’t get to visit as much but behind the scenes we are there for each other. I think that says volumes. 🙂

    Here’s to many more years babes! May Alex have a long, prosperous career and may we be around to give his great fans a place to celebrate it!

      We also wish that we were closer together to each other to celebrate – being more tha 9000km apart and do a project together, does present the 2 of us with some difficulties sometimes, but mostly we just have fun if it as well. 🙂

        Is Sardonic the one who used to do HF-0 episode reviews? If so, I wonder why she stopped.

        Like

        • Yes, she used to do some funny reviews. She stopped because of some personal issues and when she got back, she just did not have the same passion for the show anymore.
          I also think all our comments made it a bit difficult for her. I really don’t know how I would handle 500 comments on one post. It is a bit much to read through and comment on.
          I would never recomment it to anybody to run a site on the own. It really becomes difficult to keep up when you are alone, I think.

Thank you so much for letting me play along! But most of all, I have found a true friend that I think the world of. I hope some day we will meet face to face. Hopefully in Hawaii. 🙂 ((((HUGS)))) and ❤ to you FOYeur!

    Congratulations to your anniversary! When I was infected by the Alex-Virus in March/April your site immediately became my favorite one. I appreciate the very good photo quality (and choice!) and the immense work you do in research and collecting (like the interview series this summer). But most of all I enjoy all that fan girling with a wink, never too serious, a lot of fun! I hope you will have this fun for a long time so we all out here can enjoy it. Thank you for your passionate work!!!
    P.S. It took me so long to read all the elder posts, it really surprised me that this stuff came together in only two years.

  26. In this crazy world, when I want to smile, laugh (kitties) or look at something pretty and preferably shirtless 😉 , this is where I click. I love your blog and the way you two run it. 🙂 I think I have been around here for about a year and only fell upon H50 and Alex during season 3. I was late to the party but better late then never.
    I am re-watching Moonlight, my new summer ritual and I am picking up on stuff I missed the 1st two times. I wish they would do a movie just to wrap up the loose ends. The more I watch Mick the more I love this character. It is a shame it ended after one season. Anyway….
    Congrats on two years, I look forward to many more!
