Five Things...

Posted: Saturday, February 10, 2007 by Travis Cody in

...about me I haven't posted before, courtesy of Desert Songbird.

1. I love cake. Just about any kind of cake. In fact, I'm a freak about cake. My current favorite is Boston Cream Cake from Safeway.

2. I completed my college degree in Business Administration in 2000, from University of Phoenix.

3. Like a lot of kids, I collected baseball cards. Luckily, I've been able to keep them with me. So they haven't been thrown out or given away or sold or destroyed in a flooding disaster. My collection includes rookie cards of Thurman Munson, Reggie Jackson, Rickey Henderson, and Randy Johnson - to name just a few. The collection has been valued at $5,000.

4. I detest listening to Dick Vitale call a college basketball game.

5. It is completely unnecessary to twist my arm or bribe me in anyway to go to the theater, or the ballet, or an art museum, or a poetry reading, or any other cultural event.

Although I am required to tag five others for this meme, I will refrain. But if you have five things about yourself that you haven't previously posted, then feel free to play along.

    Er, about #5...


  1. tiggerprr says:

    I love cake too! Most people are pie people I find, and while I do like pie, particularly pecan pie, cake is what make the taste buds happy!

    Re: #5, is it unnecessary because you go willingly, or because no matter what's offered you won't go? LOL

    Oh how I wish I could find some veiled innuendo to comment about here, you gave me nothin'! :P

    Flourless chocolate cake
    Red Velvet cake with cream cheese icing
    Italian Cream cake
    molten chocolate cake


  1. See, I KNEW I liked you! I'm a cake person too! I like pie, but CAKE is a definite sinful temptation for me.

    $5,000, huh? Hmmm......

    Yeah, with Tiggerprr on this: do you not object because you'll go willingly or because we shouldn't bother - there's no in hell you'd ever attend a cultural event?

  1. JAM says:

    I'm a cake guy myself. I like certain kinds of pie, but many pies gross me out.

    My favorite cake is a yellow cake with peaunut butter icing that my Mom and Wife make for me on my birthdays. It's like soft peanut butter fudge with cake. It's wonderful.

    I don't collect cards of any type, I'm not much of a sport fan, but I do try to buy Hotwheels every few years when they re-issue versions they had in the late sixties and early seventies when I was a kid.

  1. Travis says:

    Dana: Here's your re-stuffed thudmat darlin.

    Tiggerprr: Pie will do, but cake is the best!

    Turn: OH MY THUMP!!

    Songbird: Cake rocks!!

    Jam: Now that cake sounds like something I need to try. I collected hotwheels as a kid, but I lost a lot of them at parks and stuff.

    And as for #5 - I will go willingly, I will propose it as an evening out, I will buy the tickets - I LIKE that stuff.

    Hmmmm interesting little tidbits Travis. Got any more?

  1. Anndi says:

    Love my cake loving, art museum going sweet as anything big bro.

    Watch out.. Vinny's gonna want that Thurman Munson...

  1. Travis says:

    Julie: There may be, but I ain't tellin'. At least not on this meme.

    Ann: Make sure you pass Vinny a napkin for the drool.

  1. Oh, yeah - I'm with you on the Dick Vitale thing too. As a matter of fact, he bugs me as much as listening to Joe Theismann call an NFL game - yuck.

  1. Sanni says:

    Great one. I was tagged by Desert Songbird, too. I thought about tagging you with this MEME but I remembered you were caught in the same trap with me. So I just came over to read your answers. =)

    And thanks for the link - I did the same!

    I'm with Turnbaby; flourless chocolate torte is AMAZING. So is molten chocolate cake. Whoa. Yum.
