Things I did on Monday night that were quite satisfying

Posted: Tuesday, September 18, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Made all my normal blog rounds.

Checked the links over at MM HQ and visited all the Manic Monday posts of everyone who signed in at Mo's.

Watched the boring MNF game with no sound. Tony Kornheiser irritates me.

Talked to my mom on the phone. Mr Bailey and Mr Newby are quite pleased to be home. They travelled well in the new motor home.

Checked in on Dancing With The Stars. There are just six days left until the show debuts on Monday Sept 24. The men dance first on Monday, with the ladies following on Tuesday. Here are the pairs:

Helio Castroneves (champion Indy Car driver) is paired with Julianne Hough
Mark Cuban (owner Dallas Mavericks) is paired with Kym Johnson
Cameron Mathison (All My Children) is paired with Edyta Sliwinska
Floyd Mayweather (champion boxer) is paired with Karina Smirnoff
Wayne Newton (yes, that Wayne Newton) is paired with Cheryl Burke
Albert Reed (model) is paired with Anna Trebunskaya
Melanie Brown (Spice Girls, Rent) is paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Sabrina Bryan (The Cheetah Girls) is paired with Mark Ballas
Jennie Garth (Beverly Hills 90210) is paired with Derek Hough
Josie Maran (The Aviator, Van Helsing) is paired with Alec Mazo
Marie Osmond (yes, that Marie Osmond) is paired with Jonathan Roberts
Jane Seymour (Dr Quinn Medicine Woman) is paired with Tony Dovolani

Prepared a light snack of cheese and sliced salami, fresh fruit, chunks of sourdough bread, and a bottle of Robert Mondavi merlot for my lady.


  1. I've only ever watched the last few weeks of Dancing With The Stars....maybe I'll watch this from the beginning....

    do you have any faves in that lineup?

  1. Janna says:

    How nice!
    Cheese and fruit and bread and wine... how thoughtful!
    Seriously, if you ever clone yourself, I'd like to buy a copy.

  1. I second Janna's request!
    Seriously, thanks for leaving all of the sweet notes even while I was out of commission! You mananged to leave some cheer in my headache haze. Thanks to your mom and dad for raising such a good man...

    First, sounds like you had an enjoyable and productive night. Second, that is QUITE the lineup for dancing with the stars.
    and third, WOW, really?

  1. Oh is it time for that dancing show again. Yep, it's September isn't it.

    Yeah, what Janna said. Okay, I'm having a bite of two and a glass of Merlot. Thanks Travis. You are a doll, and I know your lady know that. :)

    Awww Trav, you're such a sweetie. You already know that I'm one of the first in line when we clone you.

    I'm looking forward to this season, as I think Mark Cuban will be absolutely hilarious.

    Thanks for visiting the secretz.

    Travis, I am a "lurker" reader of your blog. I don't have time to comment (six kids and a blog of my own), but I truly love all the cool things you do over here. In that spirit, I have given you an award on my blog today, called The Best Kept Secret Award. You may pass it on to others if you choose. The code and instructions are in the post below. Enjoy!

  1. Awwww...that was sweet of you.
    You two are so cute.

    TC: YAY for your new dancing show!

    Bee: Sadly, there was no CAKE.

    Shelby: We enjoyed it.

    Teach: It was my pleasure.

    Turn: Ya never know...Cuban may be an ass, but he might also be able to dance. Heehee - we can try to pursuade Miss Bee with CAKE.

    Dix: Yup she is!

    Matt: Ya never know.
