Countdown Meme

Posted: Sunday, December 14, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Oh my word! Mimi, the Queen of Memes herself, tagged me for this Countdown meme thingy.

It's really really really really long!

But it's Mimi, and she has a dungeon, and she's liable to be really really really really skeery when she throws me into the dungeon for not doing this meme.

See what I mean? Very skeery!

The meme comes from...uhm...lots of other peeps. You can go to Mimi's to find the history. There are no rules. YAY! Here we go.

Name 10 things you wish you could say to 10 different people right now:

1. Dear Washington State drivers: PLEASE GO when the light turns green and give that little pedal under your right foot enough pressure to accelerate to the posted speed. And please don't coast to a stop at the next traffic light or stop sign or other event that requires the halting of your vehicular motion, hoping to save a few pennies of fuel. Just get to the dang line and stop until the light changes color.

2. To my former co-workers at my former company that no longer exists: I miss y'all!

3. Dear Mr Tucker: I'm very sorry I forgot to look down before I moved in the kitchen and stepped on you the other day. Please forgive me.

What? He is so a people!

4. Dear Safeway/Pepsi Co associate: Please remember to stock the dang Diet Pepsi 12 packs of 12oz plastic bottles.

5. Dear Mr Blagojevich: Please do the right thing and resign.

6. Dear Mr Al Davis: Please do the right thing and retire.

7. Dear Pam: I love you!

What? Yeah I say it all the time, but that doesn't mean I can't wish to say it right now!

8. Dear...uhm...anybody: Who has CAKE?????

9. To my stepdad: Thank you.

10. To my cousin, who is a Marine: You are my hero.

Tell 9 things about yourself:

1. I'm afraid of spiders.

What? It doesn't say to tell new things!

2. I love history, specifically military history.

3. The only regret I have in my life is not getting to serve in the Marine Corps.

4. I think it is extremely likely that there is life on other planets in the universe.

5. I don't know how to swim.

6. I like it when my teams win, but I have learned how to be gracious in defeat.

7. I like Fritos Scoops dipped in cream cheese.

8. I have been to 14 states - California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Indiana, New York, Georgia, Hawaii, Ohio.

9. I have been to 4 other countries - Canada, Republic of Singapore, Sri Lanka, Republic of Korea.

Name 8 ways to win your heart...uhm...I guess that means my heart:

1. Give me CAKE!

2. Thump me on the back of the head. Well, you'd have to be Pam for that one to work.

3. Don't fuss at me when I want to watch sports. If you give me a chance, I'll be happy to do stuff you like too. Pam and I understand this about each other. And she likes sports as much as I do, while I like a lot of the things she likes too.

4. Take charge sometimes. I'm a big boy and I can handle it.

5. Be straight with me and don't play the "if you don't know I'm not telling you" game.

6. Teach me stuff you know that I don't.

7. Don't laugh at me when I'm afraid of the spider.

8. Tell me the things you like, the things you don't like, the things you desire, the dreams you have, your fondest wishes. And then listen to mine.

Name 7 things that cross your mind a lot:

1. Pam.

2. CAKE!

3. Did I lock the front door?

4. Did I lock the car?

5. I wish I had a 1956 Tbird.

6. I should call my mom.

7. Be careful how you take a step. If you have joint pain, you'll understand this very well.

Name 6 things you do before you go to bed:

1. Turn off the laptop.

2. 100 sit ups and 100 push ups.

3. Brush teeth.

4. Make sure all the doors and windows are locked.

5. Ask Mr Tucker if he's ready for sleepies.

What? Don't you talk like that to your kitty?

6. Kiss Pam.

Whew! I'm glad there's no 5 things or 4 things or 3 things or 2 things.

The 1 thing I'm NOT doing is tagging. And you can't make me...even with threats of Mimi's skeery dungeon.


  1. TopChamp says:

    Cool... So Pam doesn't laugh when you're scared of spiders? Really?

    Nice to see Mr T in there x

  1. We're almost alike. I like my fritos scoops with COTTAGE cheese!


    What a coinkydink!

  1. Jamie says:

    You are definitely the most perfect you in the universe ... fun info.

    Of course I ask Mittens if the head bumps mean snuggle time.

  1. How can you like cake AND frito scoops? They're not even from the same galaxy.

    I can barely swim.

  1. Travis says:

    TC: She's very sensitive that way.

    Lois: Fritos are great dunkers!

    Jamie: I love some head bumps!

    Charles: Well, the key is not to try and eat them at the same time!

  1. Akelamalu says:

    I enjoyed learning more about you. :)

  1. Very well done. I've not done this one. Mimi's going to throw me in her dungeon and throw away the key. Wait...she gave me a get out of the dungeon pass. Woo Hoo!

    I can't swim either.

    Have a great Sunday. :)

  1. Cats are totally people, don't let them tell you otherwise!

  1. I just re-read what I wrote.
    Grammar....where is my grammar...I broke at least 3 rules (don't look)
    I'm not fixin' it now.
    Oh heck. I'll fix it.
    Hold on....

  1. Mimi's comment Take II: (yeah I know you comment followers already saw my boo-boos.....sigh)

    The forgiveness speech to Mr. Tucker completely cracked me up.
    (so is my son and Baby Boy)
    I like cream cheese on anything. I'll try Fritos next time.

    I hate the "if you don't know I'm not telling you" game too. What a waste of relationship energy.

    And I am not skeery!!
    Did I mention there are spiders in the dungeon....? And Pam won't be there to protect ya!
    Just sayin...

  1. Dianne says:

    rumor has it that if you give a spider some cake they'll leave you alone

    I love Mr. Tucker

  1. Matt-Man says:

    Ha. I don't mind spiders but if I see a bug that has more than a dozen legs I get gooey. And not in a good way. Cheers Travis!!

  1. jennifer says:

    Pam is my hero if she doesn't laugh about the spider thing. And I can say that since I have had my own personal hellacious spider experience.

    And there was a lot of PAM in here. I love it! Seeing people in love makes me REALLY happy! *Smiles* for you both!

  1. Cheesy says:

    YES!! You should ALWAYS call your Mommers!

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    Wonderful stuff about you, Trav :o) I'm with you on the spiders thing. Yikes! You won't hear me laughing.
    I talk to my dog like you talk to Mr. Tucker ;o)

  1. Linda says:

    If you think that Mimi is skeery than you obviously didn't see the fruitcake she had planned for meme-dodgers that will be spending the holidays in the dungeon! Now that stuff is really skeery!

    Perhaps Mr. Tucker can help you out with those spiders, I hear they make great cat play-toys!

  1. Travis says:

    Akelamalu: Then I am pleased to oblige.

    Sandee: Wooooooo for passes!

    Starr: Indeed!

    Mimi: You are so silly...except when you threaten me with spiders. **shiver**

    Dianne: I will NEVER share my CAKE with any spiders!

    Matt: More than a dozen legs??? That's just wrong.

    Jennifer: She gets me. And Mr Tucker likes her.

    Cheesy: And I do!

    Ivanhoe: I read once that the more you talk to your pets, the more intelligent they become.

    Linda: That's a good theory, but the problem is that Mr Tucker is as afraid of spiders as I am! He shows them to me then hides!

  1. Julie says:

    I love how you share your little seekrits.

    Funny or serious...they just all make up the wonderful you.

  1. Your answers are so adorable. Hmmm... I might be borrowing this if I have the time :)

  1. Pam gets to thunk you on the back of the head, huh? Good woman. *grin*

  1. Hope says:

    May have to do this one...I wonder what the upkeep on a dungeon is???

  1. Travis says:

    Julie: Not all my seekrits though!

    Terra: It was fun.

    Songbird: She does and she is!

    Hope: I think the costs can be offset by the evil fun of tossing people down there.

  1. Dana says:

    So, you like cake?

  1. lots of insight into travis!
