Yes, we know! It's been a painfully long time since we've updated The Alexander Home Page. But don't despair! Eventually we'll update this page one final time, allowing you to share Alex's experiences on three additional vacations. And we also plan to offer you a peek into our mailbag. So hang in there, dear reader. We haven't forgotten you!

In the meantime, we'd like to announce a brand new exciting web page that's being spun off from The Alexander Home Page. It features Alex's sister Lindsey. We expect Lindsey's home page to grow from its modest beginnings to one day rival the grand scope of The Alexander Home Page. So visit The Lindsey Home Page today, and get in on the ground floor! You'll be glad you did.

Alexander's New Home
Alex's new house Alex inside his new house
In April 2000, Alex will be moving to a new home. No, he's not leaving His Internet address will remain the same. The home we're referring to will be of the brick and mortar variety. Above left, the house as it looked on January 21, 2000. At right, Alex and his mother examine the view from Alex's new bedroom.

An optical illusion? What is this strange creature that appears to be half boy and half grandfather? Does such a beast really exist? For the story behind this odd photo, just continue scrolling down this page.
Photo Highlights
with Drew Barrymore with Bill Clinton atop the grassy knoll
In his travels, Alex has visited Radio City Music Hall with Drew Barrymore, left, met with President Clinton in the White House, center, and explored the site of the Kennedy assassination in Dallas, right.

Alexander was born on October 18, 1996, somewhere east of the Mississippi River. He has achieved a small measure of fame within his family, and at the workplaces of his parents. He lives with his parents, his dog, and his cat.

Among other things, Alexander enjoys:

  • Masking tape.
  • Vending machines.
  • Playgrounds.
  • Old Maid, Candy Land, and "Not to Spill the Beans."
  • Going to the lake, and pretending to fish.
  • Telling people that red is his favorite color.
  • Getting packages in the mail.
  • Orchestrating the bizarre lives of Jim and Helen.
  • The Iron Giant
  • Wild Berry Pop-Tarts, frozen waffles, and "pretend pancakes" (Thomas' "Toast R Cakes")
  • Going to the mall. He likes Walden Books, the Disney Store, the Warner Brothers Store, the pet store, and Learning Express.
  • Spotting pictures of the Eiffel Tower.
  • The Simpsons.
  • The Joker, Batman, and Superman. And Commissioner Gordon.
  • Playing with his train table.
  • Hash browns, Chicken McNuggets, and french fries from McDonald's.
  • Chicken and noodles from Boston Market. (Let's hope they don't go out of business!)
  • Disney movies on videotape.
  • Going to the beach with his grandparents.
  • Chicken bones.

On the other hand, there are a few things that Alex does not like:

  • Haircuts.
  • Time outs.
  • Taking a bath, especially when his hair gets wet.
  • Those slimy wet earthworms that like to die on asphalt whenever it rains.

An optical illusion? No, the photo above wasn't of some mythical two-headed fiend. It's simply Alex and his grandfather clowning around in an oversized sweatshirt. We fooled you, didn't we?
