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!!
