It's a double team on the meme!

Posted: Friday, August 10, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Starrlight tagged me first, and then Morgen tagged me again for the Middle Name Meme.

Here's the rules:

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My middle name is Alexander.

Since I've been tagged twice, I'm going to try and come up with two facts per letter.

A - I'm an Aggressive driver. I make decisions quickly and move, and I don't have a lot of patience for drivers who make bad decisions on the road. I am also an Aries.

L - People often tell me how Lucky Pam is, and I usually respond that I'm the Lucky one. But I think we're both Lucky to have found each other, to have fallen in Love like we have, and to really need nothing but each other.

E - I Eat CAKE! I also enjoy Eggs in just about any style. Scrambled Eggs with cheese and mushrooms is my favorite.

X - X is a ridiculous letter to have in a name. Although, dear Julie did remind me that Pam and I are creating our own little Xanadu here at our condo.

A - Circus Animal cookies rock! I think that someday I would like to own a suit of Armor.

N - For purposes of this meme, my middle Name is too long! I like Neopolitan ice cream sammiches.

D - I keep a Dictionary nearby at all times. I enjoy watching Design shows on HGTV.

E - I suffer from insomnia, so I'm usually awake until very late and then wake up very Early in the morning. Emergency! was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid.

R - As you can see from my sidebar, I am a proud member of Raider Nation. And I have been given permission to tell you that Pam's middle name is Rene.

Dang! That was harder than I thought it was going to be. You'd think that after struggling with this most of the evening that I would follow my meme killer instincts and not tag.

HA! I'm tagging 9 of y'all!

Dana, Turnbaby, Coco, Gail, our new blog friend Ambre, another new friend Shelby, Gracie, Tiggerprr, and Alice.


  1. Ha, ha...Sarge beat ya to it! But I'm giving you semi-credit.
    You did a heckuva job with yours. I don't even have a middle name!

  1. Julie says:

    YAY! **jumps up and down clapping** DANA GOT TAGGED!!!

    Good job Mr. Travis! Seriously you did fine!

  1. Bond says:

    Excellent job with a long middle name and TWO facts for each....

    Yes, you have created a Xanadu and you are both lucky and neopolitan ice cream rocks

  1. Lizza says:

    We have three things in common: cake, eggs, and insomnia!

    Oh, and blogging, of course.

  1. Matt-Man says:

    Squad 51 this is Rampart Hospital, go ahead...Cheers Trav.

  1. Shelby says:

    how fun is this?!!

    ok - I'll play long too... but I don't have a middle name... gotta think of one... any suggestions?

    take care and happy FRIDAY - finany!!

  1. Mags says:

    I was double teamed too by Bond and Julie! And yay-I'm glad you've got a long name too-mine's 8 letters!

  1. the108 says:

    Jesus! You poor thing with the giant middle!

  1. Linda says:

    It might have been hard but you did a fantastic job - even with the "X" stuck in there! I would say you have outdone yourself and set the bar high for your tag-ees!

  1. Travis says:

    Gracie: No middle name eh? You get to make something up!

    Julie: I must learn not to stress over memes!

    V: Neopolitan ice cream seriously rocks.

    Lizza: Wooooooooooooooo!!

    Matt: Rampart, Squad 51 - stand by for vital signs...

    Shelby: Well, it's fun now because I finished it! And another NMI!

    Bee: Of course you may have CAKE!

    Mags: I suggest not trying to do two facts for the double tag!

    108: Well, when I'm not trying to do random facts about myself for each letter I kind of like the 4 syllables!

    Linda: And X wasn't even the most difficult letter!

  1. tiggerprr says:

    I'm all done with mine! :) And I'm celebrating my first anniversary today too! :)

  1. Neopolitan KICKS BUTT!!

  1. Skittles says:

    Wow.. I had enough trouble with three letters in my middle name! Good job. :)

  1. Diesel says:

    Way to pull Xanadu out of your a**. :)

  1. TopChamp says:

    I'm confused... You pulled Xanadu out of your arse?

    I am finding this difficult. Julie tagged me.

    Neopolitan icecream falls down for me in that I have to eat around the pink bit... and if I get any pink bit the white and brown are ruined. It's tricky.

    (p.s. still shattered and therefore talking s'.t. Sorry.)

  1. Travis says:

    Tiggerprr: I'll be by to celebrate both things with you soon!

    Starrlight: Damn straight it does!

    Skittles: It was tough!

    Diesel: Well, with a little assistance anyway.

    TC: LOL! The pink strawberry is my favorite part!

  1. well done....

    if you hate drivers who can't decide...NEVER come to a town that draws tourists. A couple years ago I made a sign I would flash which said, "GO HOME...don't come back til you learn how to drive."

  1. Turnbaby says:

    You rock sugar---awesome job with a long ass middle name and a really special one for me. Alexander would have been my name for a boy.

    Thanks for the tag---I am so glad my middle name is Anne


  1. Meribah says:

    Hmmm, I think I read that Aries folk tend to be aggressive.... Good job on the meme. It sucks when the name you have to use is too long, doesn't it? LOL

  1. An excellent job with a long name. My oldest nephew claims the middle name of Alexander; we've always called him Alex.
