Magic 8

Posted: Saturday, June 30, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Meribah the Pole Dancing Puppy tagged me for this eight things meme. I'm supposed to post a bunch of rules but guess what? I'm not gonna!!


It's my blog and you can't make me! Nana nana boo boo!

OK. Now that the childishness is out of my system...hey! Stop laughing!

Anyway, according to the meme I'm supposed to come up with eight things to tell you about myself.

1. I really dislike spiders.

2. I don't know how to swim, and I'm a little afraid of large bodies of water. But the odd thing is that I do like to go boating.

3. I like to blog. I didn't realize that I would enjoy it so much when I started last November.

4. I don't mind shopping for furniture or fixtures, or other decorating things for my condo.

5. I like pasta and there have been times when I've eaten the same pasta day after day for weeks.

6. I've said this before, but I am a Taylor Hicks fan and a proud member of the Soul Patrol.

7. I've never painted before, but I'm looking forward to choosing colors and painting my condo.

8. I had a tough time after high school trying to figure out what to do and who to be. When I wasn't able to become a Marine or play football in college, I kind of drifted and didn't know what I should do. So I'm extremely proud to be able to say I am a college graduate now, after completing my degree in Business Administration in 2000.

I'm not tagging, but feel free to do this if you're in a sharing mood.

    take care and happy day :)

  1. Nice to learn new things about blogging friends. Afraid of water but will go out on a boat? Wow. Maybe you're not afraid of water?

    And the blogging. Ditto.
    Pasta. Ditto. (except eating it for weeks)
    Bud and I are doing similar things with rearranging and decorating. Except that I feel like I'm invading his male space at times.
    At least the UCONN posters are gone.
    Good luck with your condo.

  1. we have lots of spiders in podunk trav. lots and lots of them...

    smiles, bee

  1. I love this's cool to just learn random things about people.

    Good luck on the painting. It's not as easy as you think. We did some painting on our home when we purchased it two years ago! Next time I'll hire it done!!!

    A word of advice about painting: Don't try to pick colors based on those little postage stamp sized samples they give you. Buy a quart of a color you think you like and then paint a small area of your wall. It always looks different on the wall.

  1. My son is a pasta fiend. He would eat it three times a day every day if I let him. Funny, considering I was raised on rice!

    I'm still trying to figure out what I wanna be when I grow up. Three college degrees, and I'm still undecided. Still got my whole life in front of me, right?

  1. Pauline says:

    You have been shouted to, please drop by to see why.

    so you put your boat in the bath perhaps?

  1. Travis says:

    Shelby: Thanks! You too!

    Mimi: Oh I'm afraid of water - the boat has to be pretty big and safe. Just remember, he invited you to invade and you can compromise on stuff that will appeal to both of you. That's how Pam and I have done it in the new place.

    Bee: **shivers** Did I mention that I really don't like spiders?

    CWM: I hope painting goes well. The rooms aren't very big, so maybe it will be ok.

    Diesel: Thanks for the tip. The rooms are kinda small and we're thinking of darker colors - makes us a little nervous.

    Songbird: Right! I like what I'm doing now, but I can't quite see retiring from it in 20 years, ya know?

    Pauline: Thanks for the kind words! How'd you guess about the boat? Heehee!!

  1. Comedy + says:

    Loved your spunk here. You just ain't gonna follow the rules. Good for you. I think just about everyone on earth has done this meme too.

    I don't like spider either Tavis. Have a great day. :)

    nothing wrong with spiders, unless you live in Oz.
    I'm afraid of water and used to work on ships, I once took a scuba diving course to try and beat my fear - unsuccessful but spectacular.

    If you had painted before you wouldn't be looking forward to it!

  1. Meribah says:

    Hey! You didn't post the rules! Even I posted the rules! Well, okay, I whined a lot first, but I still did it! LOL
    I don't mind teeny tiny baby spiders, even the baby spider "clumps" are okay, but the big ones freak me out! **shivers** However, they DO make a satisfying "pop squish" sound when you stomp on 'em! :P
