CheersFest 2013: Arlee "Lee" Bird!



I'm delighted to participate in the 2nd Annual CheersFest. Last year we roasted The Ninja Captain, and this year my wonderful friend
Arlee “Lee” Bird

has been chosen as the honoree. A very deserving guy, not just because he's the Godfather of the April Blogging from A-Z Challenge (you have heard of that, right?) but because he's an all-around class act. Cheers to you, my friend. This next part has word limits...egads, I'm going to epically fail...

  1. Why did Lee come up with the A-Z Challenge? Arlee started the Challenge to celebrate his birthday.
  2. If someone dreams about being a juggler, what does it mean? Google says: If you successfully juggle alone, or for no particular reason, this may reflect the desire or feeling that you actually are controlling numerous facets of your life.
  3. Is a post by Mr. Bird worth two in the bush? A post by Mr. Bird is worth WAY more than two in the bush. He writes with insight and to stir up conversation. Boy, does he succeed!
  4. Who could play Lee in a documentary? (Living or dead.) I pick a live person...I say Sean Connery. I've never heard Lee talk, maybe he has a Scottish accent ;-)

In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts: Bird, Juggles, Challenge, Brown Jacket, Tossing

Flaming Turkey Wings!

The man in the brown jacket found it a challenge to juggle those flaming turkey wings. Tossing them into the air for a fourth try, he was finally successful. So if you see a man who juggles parts of a bird, you know who it must be...

For Bonus Points: (like I could resist...)
·         
In +/- 40 words, can you come up with a caption for Lee’s Facebook picture?  

If juggling was easy, everyone would be doing it. It's not, so I'm cool.

Happy CheersFest my friend!  I hope this day makes you feel as special and appreciated as you truly are.
~Tina

P.S For more "cheering", hit this link for the list of participants.  Someone is bound to have a better caption than mine...

Flaming turkey wings! I like it.
There have been some funny posts today. Think Lee is enjoying it.
I know I'm enjoying it because this year it's not ME!

Sean Connery has such a sexy voice.

M. J. Joachim said...

Yes, Lee is definitely cool, and a class act all around, as you say, Tina!

Flaming turkey wings - Turkey flambe!

Why just the wings? I think it should be flaming turkeys. Like bowling balls.

JoJo said...

Love it! Happy Arlee Bird Day!

Flaming Turkey Wings, YIKES! The second vote for Sean that I've seen so far. Good choice.

Kimberly said...

Flaming turkey wings is cool! I love the Sean Connery pick!

sydneyaaliyah.com said...

Someone else picked Sean and I though the same thing. Connery is Scottish. Oops, I said British. haha

Brian Miller said...

ha. juggling flaming turkey wings....smiles....nice...i can not juggle....

Jo said...

Hm, Sean Connery eh? I would certainly watch that movie. I wonder if Sean can juggle.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Lee's posts are ever thought provoking. Flaming turkey wings? Good luck juggling that for real. Sean Connery has multiple picks. So does surprisingly my pick Alan Rickman. Nice post for Lee, I'm so glad you, myself and others came out this year for Cheerfest 2.0.

Morgan said...

Hahaha! I said Sean Connery too! LOL. Who knows what Lee sounds like! And Tina, LOVED all of this. Way fun. The FF was brilliant and loved your answers. Thanks so much for participating---I hope Lee feels loved!

Arlee Bird said...

Sorry, no Scottish accent, and I'll take my martinis any way I can get 'em--shaken, stirred, out of a can, whatever.

Guess I'm stuck with that brown jacket image.

Thanks for the sweet and fun post, dear valuable A to Z Co-host.

Tossing It Out

Hey Tina,

Oh yeah, first the ninja dude, then the guy obsessed with the alphabet! :) Hmmmm....no conspiracy theories from me.....

A worthy roast to the worthiest of roasted Bird. Juggling flaming turkey wings. I like that. Once again, I wont mention what "Tossing" means in Britain. No way.

I like you caption, Tina. Juggling isn't easy, just like juggling more than one blog, isn't easy.

A very nice post to Lee. And what's with this A to Z Challenge? Please, make it STOP!

Nice one Tina and all the best to Lee.

Being from England originally Gary, I know exactly what it means LOL

Hi Tina - love the flaming turkey wings and I think Lee would do that .. then the juggling alone - well everything would always be up in the air ...

Lee's done a great job bringing bloggers together - where we all have the opportunity to meet up and find new inspiration around the net ..

Everyone's had some fun roasting Lee ... cheers Hilary
