The Mighty Alex

I am the Mighty Alex

I’m crazy but I’m fun!

I am the Mighty Alex

And I’m the only One!

I am the Mighty Alex

I do not drive a car!

Just walking is a challenge

So I do not get far!

I am the Mighty Alex

I wave at those I’ve never met!

I love to talk to strangers

Advice on danger I don’t get!

I am the Mighty Alex

I don’t know where I’ve been!

I am the Mighty Alex

I hope I wasn’t seen!

I am the Mighty Alex

I dance I sing I bark!

I am the Mighty Alex

Come frolic in the park!

I am the Mighty Alex

My sisters are so neat!

I am the Mighty Alex

I like to kiss their feet!

I am the Mighty Alex

My hair’s coloured like a fox!

I think I might surprise you

When I jump out of my box!

I am the Mighty Alex

My boyfriend’s name was Matt!

Although I liked to kiss him

I also kiss my rat!

I am the Mighty Alex

And when I feed my fish,

I spread the fish flakes nicely

Upon a silver dish!

I am the Mighty Alex

I believe that I can fly!

I can’t remember my last flight

But that won’t make me cry!

I am the Mighty Alex

My sister’s name is Cat!

Cos I want to live some more

I wouldn’t call her fat!

I am the Mighty Alex

When happy I wag my tail!

But when I get upset

I tend to fall & flail!

I am the Mighty Alex

With IT I am friends

But every time I drop them

The friendship quickly ends.

I am the Mighty Alex

Chocolate is my favourite snack

Despite what all my sisters say

My head still has no crack!

I am the Mighty Alex

I think coffee keeps me sane,

At least not quite so crazy

It stimulates my brain!

I am the Mighty Alex

Shed for me no tears!

I really have a brilliant mind

I haven’t used in 7 years!

I am the Mighty Alex

I want to study bugs,

They’ll help me catch the criminals

& put away the thugs!

I am the Mighty Alex

Shout “Hip hip Hooray”

I am the Mighty Alex

I’m off to save the day!

I am the Mighty Alex

I have not been through a hedge!

I look pretty every mornin’

But grunge gives me an edge!

I am the Mighty Alex

I will not wear a dress!

I won’t look like a girl

Cos girls just can’t play chess!

I am the Mighty Alex

I can not feel the cold!

And if I can understand you

I might do as I’m told!

I am the Mighty Alex

I love to play with dogs!

We wave from the front window

When I’m not wearing togs!

I am the Mighty Alex

My head’s amongst the trees!

Before I ignore your answer

I try to add a “Please”!

I am the Mighty Alex

I come from outer space!

I know I might seem scary

But I won’t bite off your face!

I am the Mighty Alex

And friends call me a loon!

I’m not allowed to drive a car

So I can’t be a hoon!

I am the Mighty Alex

I’m not ignoring you!

The voices in my head are loud

And they are fighting too.

I am the Mighty Alex

And I am not a freak!

I may have been, some years ago

When I was at my peak!

I am the Mighty Alex

I used to go to school

But teachers are so fussy

When students faint or drool!

I am the Mighty Alex

& I am great to know!

Anywhere you want to take me

I will want to go!

I am the Mighty Alex

My glasses are so cool,

I am the Mighty Alex

I’m blind without this tool!

I am the Mighty Alex

I communicate through a screen,

On NDS, computer or TVs

I am seriously keen!

I am the Mighty Alex

I may not be an elf,

Skylander, pirate, assassin

But at least I am myself!

I am the Mighty Alex

To be Garfield I aspire!

Lasagne, sleep & eating ferns

Are all things I admire!

I am the Mighty Alex

I plan to start a Quest!

I am the Mighty Alex

But I must have my rest!

I am the Mighty Alex

My pets include 4 cats!

Just like me my felines

Are bossed about by rats!

I am the Mighty Alex

Webs are my biggest fear!

I really like the spiders,

Not the gossamer from their rear!

I am the Mighty Alex

Now don’t go in my room!

Without a team to find you

It might end up your tomb!

I am the Mighty Alex

So stay out of my way!

If I accidently fall on you

You’ll make my parents pay!

I am the Mighty Alex

My sisters are so mean!

Tash & Tab are bossy

& Catherine is their queen!

I am the Mighty Alex

My 2 dogs are so daft!

If the 3 of us put out to sea

We’d all fall off the raft!

I am the Mighty Alex

I drink a lot of coke!

People love to laugh at me

I love to tell a joke!

I am the Mighty Alex

I like the colour green!

I sit out in the garden

On weeding I am keen!

 

I am the Mighty Alex

My favourite colour’s red!

I collect rocks & stones

An’ store them in my head!

 

I am the Mighty Alex

My other fav is yellow!

I am the Mighty Alex

& I’m a mellow fellow!

I am the Mighty Alex

& I am far from stupid!

My boyfriend was  imperfect

Cos I was kicked by Cupid!

I am the Mighty Alex

To nature I am drawn!

So I don’t know how to feel

‘Bout artificial lawn!

I am the Mighty Alex

& I can spin a tale!

I f it’s secretly ‘bout my sister

Just watch out for the whale!

I am the Mighty Alex

So come and join the fun

I am the Mighty Alex

And now my song is done.

      1. alright my loves– i had no idea what it costs (or how many chaos-inducing stops/connections would be involved) but purely based on costs from aus to *new* england usa, im guessing that if at some point we decide to make this happen, that the flight is probably in the $4-$500 usd range. depending on how much renewing my passport will cost? i would probably (dont want to jinx it) be able to purchase that ticket. especially if it were a one-way (they dont always cost less though.) thats economy and if it were $800 it would be closer to impossible. i dont want to say impossible because i think it would be lovely to make it happen at some point… but im satisfied as far as a ballpark figure goes, that at least the ticket is in the realm of possibility, for now.

        if i can get my bloody passport renewed, that thing is good for 10 years. the rest of it will all take miracles. its good to leave room in life for miracles– i wouldnt have made it this far without a few. no worries, it takes a *minimum* of 3 months to get a passport renewed here. it takes longer to get a woman to agree over the internet to marry you over the internet. if only everything were as quick or easy as getting her mum to like you. oh, if only! love to you and yours.

      2. just to be clear, i only found prices for aus TO us. (round trip those.) its a fun fact that round trip tickets are sometimes cheaper than one-way (supply and demand, you know) but naturally im looking for us TO aus. they could be twice as much, but god forbid.

  2. “it takes longer to get a woman to agree over the internet to marry you over the internet. ”

    or rather: “it takes longer to get a woman to agree over the internet to marry you.”

    the good news is i will save a few dollars on my editor, who i have just sacked.

    if you do take up planning a ceremony mum, (not to presume a thing) i think a home ceremony would be the most appropriate. it could be outside even (alex would probably prefer it) but i think at least one part towards the completion should be inside the house. a thought– like many people with our condition i dont always think about things from the start to the finish– i work backwards, and a lot of people who have had greater successes than i do it too.

    1. I read what you meant not what you said. Part of me wants to say don’t sack your editor but why not keep the money. I will not plan your wedding without you. I will plan about a dozen & let you two pick. I’m not a monster; no matter what my family say. But I think Alex will probably want to copy the part in ours where Gavin swore on a sword (replica).
      Talk to you soon.

      1. it would be an honour, and i say that with the utmost sincerity.

        on a less serious (and less sincere) note, i do believe i was a knight in armour in another life. i certainly hope it was good for something, because in this life i can still feel my clothes chafing!

      2. saint george: “a damsel in distress! dont worry dear, i will rescue you at once!:

        alex: “its ok, i was just teaching him how to blow smoke rings.”

        saint george: “no, no! thats a ferocious beast! he will tie you to a post, and…”

        alex: “how is he going to do that? he doesnt have that much dexterity in the first place, do you boy?” *petting dragon; dragon snorts affectionately*

        saint george: “but im here to slay him and take you back to safety.”

        alex: “dont do that! if you slay huplol, i will be terribly sad!”

        saint george: “huplol?”

        [ dragon.namegeneratorfun.com … “He hisses like a cat and prefers small prey. This one is independent and aloof.” <- that was the first thing it generated, but i was sold on "independent and aloof" 😀 ]

        alex: "…and why is he going to tie me to a post, anyway?"

        saint george: "so i can rescue you?"

        alex: "sounds rigged. anyway, you can pet him if you want. id put the sword down first, though."

        saint george: *pets the dragon, is obviously getting too old for this business*

  3. It’s a way off but when the time comes we can help with costs; not a worry. This morning Alex said awesome & Gavin couldn’t believe you’d written it (I sang it, sorry). You are making major points!

    1. tell gav i confess that i completely plagiarised the meter. also the “alex” it refers to is a real person– i think youre legally obliged to change the name in such works, but i just couldnt do that this time.

    that should just load in the browser. it is perhaps more likely to load on a computer than a phone, it might work either way. also note that running the program that produces that video is better than the video itself; the video capture program isnt the best (or the settings werent optimized,) and the original is faster and smoother looking, at least.

      1. sigh. another thing i could take care of for you. a friend of mine is a *very* skilled microsoft technician– normally i dont use “skilled,” “technician” and “microsoft” all at once (which is a testament to how good he really and truly is.) im not on his level– but if its software, i could probably sort it out for you. do you know which malware it is/was yet?

      2. About 1 in every 5 (was one in two but we found security had been turned off) an ad loads it is either one of two betting sites (easy to close) or a really evil warning about malware with a phone number to call (that my father in law fell for a few months ago) that can only be gotten rid of by Control, Alt Delete and restarting everything. If I can turn it off before it loads I don’t have to restart but… It’s just sending my anxiety sky high! Gavin is going to work on it but when we got the new computer my external drive just stopped working containing all the stuff I had just emergency dumped from Sebastian so it wouldn’t be lost. He’s spent the last two days recovering the data on that, he’s going to look at this problem when he’s finished down loading and backing up my computer life. I hate hackers they are destroying my life as is stupid computer glitchie things.
        I am going to play a game to calm down now.

      3. terrible. i hope sir gavin can slay it soon, and you manage to enjoy your day nonetheless. i also have to figure out if i should obtain a real pen (seriously, i dont have one but i used to) or if i should just write to you in fine-tipped marker. im leaning towards that. but then what colour to use? i think brown is the most formal. (i had a black one, no telling where its gone to.)

        dont worry, its not the kind that goes through half a ream of paper and spreads until each line is 3/4 of an inch wide. i could type it and laser print, but our communication is already digital enough as it is.

      4. i was just sending alex a copy of my version of “the mighty alex” and explaning why i always call mr. #### “sir gavin.” (its in reference to the sword part of the ceremony.) if we do marry i will always call him that (or as long as i get away with it.) all in good fun anyway.

        anyway, i had just sent it and (i dont know when i got the notification) but i watch a few people there, including a group called pixelgiri.

        the reason i was sending a copy of the mighty alex (2) is the original said that catherine was their queen (tash and tab.) but that i still think alex is queen.

        and i clicked on the watch notification, which was there to tell me these two new images from pixelgiri were online: (i think this is one of the most remarkable coincidences of my entire life, and i hope its meaningful.)
