Since things are starting to look up for the family, I thought I would write a happy post. Sure I pretty much just put everything out there for the world to read on a daily basis- or do I? How much do you truly know about Texas Banter? Here are 15 things you would have never guessed:

1. I know every song by R&B group Jagged Edge by heart and love them to death. Name a song and I’ll give you the CD and track number.

2. I can only drink Dr Pepper or generic Dr Pepper. I refuse to drink any other soda unless its Sprite and I have the flu.

3. I used to be blonde for 8 years before a tragic breakup made me dye it.

4. I live for Subway and their tuna footlongs.

5. Football fanatic!

6. I started using computers when I was 15 but can’t build my own- go figure!

7. I am only 2 minutes older than Twin and take great pride in being the “big sister”.

8. I know a little Scottish Gaelic, German, and Spanish.

9. I like all kinds of music but mostly R&B and heavy metal (with country and other genres thrown in for good measure.)

10. I LOVE horror movies- I prefer those over action or suspense.

11. My cat, Smokie, has my nickname from high school as her name.

12. I share a birthday (Dec. 12th) with Frank Sinatra and Connie Francis.

13. I live for Spring and those hair-raising storms!

14. I try to read 2 books a week.

15. Bill Paxton and Tom Hanks are my favorite actors while Renee Zellwegger is my favorite actress.

Well now you know more about me- any questions?

If you can’t tell, I am extremely happy.

If I’m correct, the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl was the last college Bowl of the season. It was against the Ohio State University Buckeyes and the University of Texas Longhorns. Now, I didn’t watch the whole thing because I was switching between the movie “Hook” (with Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman) and “You’ve Got Mail” (no need to say who is in this!) so I kept turning it over to the game to see the score. Everytime I did, OSU was still ahead. So at the 4th quarter, I turned it to the game since “Family Guy” wasn’t on yet and I wanted to see UT beat the snot out of OSU.

Well, the 4th quarter was interestly to say the least! OSU got a couple of penalties, UT got one. The score was 21 to 17 with OSU leading. UT makes the snap and is taken down at the 1st down mark, and even though it had already been reviewed, OSU wanted to review it again. UT ended up keeping their first down. With less than 40 seconds on the clock, Colt McCoy throws the ball to Krosby and he drives it in for a touchdown!! They make the extra point and it’s OSU’s ball. UT wouldn’t even let them get a 1st down. 5 seconds left….
