Let's Meme!

Posted: Friday, May 16, 2008 by Travis Cody in

My new friend Kimmie tagged me for a little meme at the beginning of the month, and this is a good day for a little meme!

Kimmie says to post the rules, so here they are:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post,the player then tags 5 or more people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answers.

Okey-fine. Rules posted...check!

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Let's see, that would be 16 May 1998. My memory isn't very good. I know I was living in Southern California. I was managing a small data networking company. And I was getting my financing in place so I could complete my college degree.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?

Choose a game for game night
Find out if we need to bring beer/soda
Stop by home and feed Mr Tucker
Empty the dishwasher
Check the Manic Monday word

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Cheese & Crackers
Peanut Butter sammich
Chex Mix

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

I would buy me one of these!

I would buy a penthouse suite at the Fairmont in San Francisco and spend every October there.

I would donate sums to youth sports programs, Muscular Distrophy Association, and cancer research.

And I would do pretty much anything else I wanted.

5. Three of my bad habits:

I use the front of my shirt as a napkin
I collect too much stuff
I swear at bad drivers

6. Five places I have lived:

Northern California
Southern California
Central California
Southwestern Washington
Puget Sound Washington

7. Jobs I've had:

Domino's Pizza delivery driver
Accounts Payable clerk
Inventory clerk
Accounts Receivable accountant
Operations & Logistics

Thanks for the tag Kimmie! I break the rules and don't tag, but feel free to steal it if you like it!

So we're off to our friends' place tonight to play some games and have fun. Then I'm taking my Lady shopping for her birthday tomorrow. Well, her birthday was yesterday but we're shopping tomorrow. Ya follow?

  1. Travis says:

    Katherine: Only October because that's the best weather. And I guess the swearing is a bad habit if you get caught!

    Bee: Yes Ma'am!

    Ivanhoe: Thanks! We're trying to do this once a month with friends.

    Drilleraa: Cool!

    Marsha: I did see that!

    Charles: Thank you Sir.

    Akelamalu: We shall see. She hasn't even decided where we're shopping yet!

    TJ: Hi there! And I hope all is well with you too!

    V: Tonight it's LOTR Monopoly and possibly LOTR Trivia.

    Teach: I'll say...it's good!

    Meri: I predict we will have a good time!

    Bud: Thanks!

    Jennifer: Gotta make sure that Mr Kitty is covered.

  1. Dana says:

    Ooh, ooh, ooh! Sounds like loads of fun and I'll consider myself tagged and do it tomorrow!

    Cake, eh? Never would have guessed it...:P

  1. TopChamp says:

    Happy Birthday Pam!

    I googled Chex Mix - saw a picture and thought 'it looks like cereal'. I then clicked the link - and found it IS sort of cereal.. rather savoury snacks made by a cereal manufacturer.


    Weirdly I can't imagine you swearing.

    What game did you choose? Is the picture the one?

  1. Jeff B says:

    You're right about the wheather being near perfect in October in San Francisco. This meme is on my to do list as well. Nice to catch up with you again.

  1. Happy Happy Birthday to Pam! Standing singing......

  1. Janna says:

    You were a pizza dude? Really?
    I have even more respect for you now.
    No, really.
    I hear that can be a rough, thankless job where you meet a lot of jerks.
    Kudos to you.

    And I just KNEW that cake would have to be on your list of favorites. :)

  1. Kimmie says:

    Hey Travis!
    Great Answers...I loved it also that you included your kitty on your "To Do" list. But I AM the Crazy Cat Lady! ;-)

    I hope you had fun with game night!

    "HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAM!" May all your Wish's Come True!


  1. Turnbaby says:

    I hope you are having a lovely weekend with your lady fair. This is a cool meme and I'm sure i'll steal it at some point.

  1. Travis says:

    Dana: It was fun!

    TC: That was one of the games, and we also had a table for Lord of the Rings Trivia.

    Jeff: Good to see you out and about!

    Janna: I really was. And there were quite a few jerks, but I made some big time tips too.

    Kimmie: We had a great time with game night!

    Turn: It was a fantastic day!

  1. Cake? G, I'm shocked.

  1. Me I'd opt for a couple of clasic cars.a '65 'stang,a 65 Galaxy 500 ltd,a chevy nomad.

  1. Jamie says:


    We have way too much in common ... a love of the Dodgers, the T Bird Convertible, swearing at bad drivers (for heaven's sake you are in California ... !##$$$$% Learn to DRIVE!) and the Fairmont Hotel. Those were great answers.

    If you play Clue on game night I want an invitation.

  1. Roger says:

    Hahaha what Katherine said!

  1. Julie says:

    I had known most of this stuff but you know me and my affliction with CRS! Good meme Travis!

  1. Good meme, I might have to steal it for tomorrow!

  1. Leigh says:

    intersting answers. I am going to do this on my blog this week.
    Cant wait to see DWTS tonight. Fabian and Marlee will be back tomorrow night. I watched them rehearse (video on my blog)thaey look great. Marleee wants to prove herself -she can do the mambo!

  1. Travis says:

    Misty: Who knew? LOL!

    Mike: Muscle cars rock too!

    Jamie: Thanks for the idea about Clue...I think I'll make a note for next time.

    Roger: LOL!

    Julie: Every so often I need to remind you!

    Starr: I'll turn my back and count to 10 while you make off with the meme.

    Leigh: Sometimes the show dances are disappointing...I hope the freestyles this season are good!
