Thursday 13 - 100th Post

Posted: Thursday, February 08, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Well gang, today is my 100th post. YAY ME!!

In honor of this milestone occasion, my 13 today is a little different. I met many of you over on the American Idol boards, specifically on the Taylor Hicks board. We had great times and lots of fun.

And we celebrated milestone posts. We celebrated with post parties and silliness. We did some goofy stuff y'all.

For my 13 today, I present 13 of my favorite ways to celebrate a milestone post. Don't worry if you have no idea what any of this means. It's all about the silly!!

1. **tosses confetti and walnuts**

2. **tosses flaming walnuts while juggling mittened kittens** Oh, the mittens are so I don't get scratched.

3. **does a hop jig, a soul twitch, and a left leg swing with extra thigh action while juggling leprechauns and singing in the rain** Regrettably, sometimes a kitten gets dropped. That's normally no big deal, 'cause kitties land on their feet. But, see, the mittens make kitty feet very slippery. Thus the move to leprechauns.

4. **hops in the T-bird, screeches donuts in the driveway of the Original Soul Patrol place, breaks out in random song**

5. **takes a quick running start, does a round off into successive back hand springs, followed by a punch front into a full twisting triple back somersault in pike position, sticks the landing without stepping out of bounds, vaults forward into a hand stand** Whew!!

6. **plants feet, takes firm grasp of one wrist and one ankle, gets a good three spin wind-up, and tosses Gary Coleman with enough force to launch him into orbit** Now you have to be careful with this particular celebration. Most of the time we fail to heave Mr Coleman with sufficient trajectory and force to actually achieve stable orbit. On those occasions we have special ships at sea to track his orbital decay on highly sophisticated radar. Unfortunately, the radar has glitches and we inevitably lose track of Mr Coleman's re-entry. Once, he actually crashed down in the OSP backyard and nearly killed the pool boy!!

7. **see above, only substitute Webster** This diminutive star has a much higher success rate in achieving stable orbit. Unfortunately, we tend to forget he's up there.

8. No milestone celebration is complete without an open bar. I'm a Gentleman Jack man myself, but we have a wide variety of spirits to satisfy the most diverse pallets. For our Canadian Soul Patrollers, we have plenty of watered down American, I've got that one mixed up. We have all the best Canadian brews for our friends from north of the border. Yeah - that's what I meant to say. Oh yeah, for those non-drinkers we provide bottomless pitchers of ice cold milk and sweet tea - 2 of our man Taylor's favorite drinks.

9. We've had celebrations disrupted many times when someone forgot to shut the barn door and lock up the corral. The cow gets a little crazy, llamas chase the ducks from thread to thread, while the twins Madness and Mayhem wreak havoc. And then the Damm Duck breaks the thread and we all end up in banned camp.

10. Water balloons!! I almost forgot water balloons!! And whipped cream drawings of Onions and Ears and Tatas oh my!!!

11. A favored spectacle during any milestone post celebration is the appearance of thread hoppers and the occasional flasher. Sometimes all it takes is a little of this - (.)(.) - and you don't need a reason to celebrate. Stare at 'em long enough - you'll figure out what they are.

12. The party really gets hopping when the TK's show up. TK stands for Thread Killers, but it's not what you think. See, sometimes our board would be invaded by the dreaded trolls whose mission was to ruin all the fun and get people all ripped up and mad at each other. TK's started off as a thread for peeps who thought they were death to any thread they joined. Turns out, they are just about the sweetest group. They feel so bad about killing threads, that they just can't seem to let anyone be the last to post!! And when those dreadful trolls appear, TK's zoom into the thread and hi-jack it so fast, the troll has no choice but to begone!! And then the party is back on baby!!

13. OK my sweet SP gals - you read all the way through. You've been so patient. Here's my favorite way to celebrate a milestone post. Ready?? Oh, fellas - you may just want to skip this part.

**puts on leather jacket, whips out harmonica, tilts head, batts eyelashes, wails Taylor-style on Tobbaco Road, bends knees, shakes tail with sexy mambo hip swivels, leather jacket flapping about the onion, numerous left leg swings with extra hip and thigh action, finishing with a fast and furious Taylor-go-round that makes me so dizzy I fall on the floor for one last fuzzy belly shot**


There you have it. My 13 favorite ways to celebrate a milestone post. And for those of you with absolutely no idea what I meant by that stuff, watch the video.

And in the interest of equal time...

Have a happy Thursday y'all!!

    Congrats on the 100th post. Great post, even if I'm scratching my head a bit over parts of it, but I'm smiling. I like number 11, at least the part i understand. :)

  1. Travis says:

    Mags: Thanks for stopping by! All that stuff is from wacky AI days.

    Julie: Hell, I was there and sometimes I still don't understand it!

    Turn: Why do you think I did it darlin? Heehee!!

    Ann: Oh no you didn't. Oh you did. Dangit! It's the French talk. **sigh** THUMP!

  1. Travis says:

    John: That's the flirt in me, represented in writing on the AI boards.

  1. Meribah says:

    Ooooo, the sweet memories that brought back! Just for that, here's a treat from the puppy! **Gets into a little French maid outfit, shakes her tail and swings around the pole in a sexy way (or as sexy as a puppy wearing five bras and a French maid's costume can), bats eyelashes** LOL

  1. Travis says:

    Meri: Woooooooooooooooo!! **keeps a pervy eye on the pole dancin' puppy**

  1. Anndi says:

    Did I hear a manly thunder?


    Je t'aime tellement plus que mes valises...

    Looks like you've been told about Thumping LOL

  1. Travis says:

    Ann: Stop it!! Now you're just doing it to be ornery!! And yes, Mr V reminded me that men don't THUD, they THUMP!!

    **reaches over and yanks on the pigtails**

  1. JAM says:

    Hey, the Gary Coleman / Nathaniel Lewis throw sounds fun. Though it's probably easier to get Mr. Lewis (Webster) into orbit, he's still a bit smaller than Mr. Coleman.

    Congrats on your 100th post.

  1. Travis says:

    Jam: We did find this to be so. Thanks for stopping by and finding the funny!

  1. Dana says:







    Great, thanks Trav, you just killed me.

  1. That was quite a list! I loved #11. Surely nobody had a hard time figuring that one out! :)
    Heh heh...

  1. Gail says:

    congrats on 100, dearie...

    don't forget to *boing*


  1. TopChamp says:

    Does he really drink milk? It's bad for singers so I've heard...

  1. Maryfly says:

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! *tosses confetti and assorted chocolates"

    oh the memories.....*tacklehugs*!

  1. Janna says:

    Sounds like you burned about 1000 calories there with all the juggling and acrobatics... go have a piece of cake!!!
    Oh, and the Leprechaun-rights activist groups would like a word with you.

  1. Sanni says:

    YAY! Happy 100th - and such a funny TT! I really enjoyed everything, but my fave is #13 =)
