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?


A week! December 5, 2008

It is official, I am getting old. Well, older. A week from today, I will be turning 24. Yep, my birthday is Decemeber 12th.

I intended for this to be funny, but nothing comes to mind. Atleast not yet.

For those who don’t know or haven’t read any of my previous blogs, I have a twin sister. Yes, we share the same birthday. I already know what I’m getting her for her birthday (just have to wait until the 11th to pick it up) and she already has my gift. She has given me hints but I still don’t get it. I couldn’t even begin to think of what it could be!

This might be a long one, so bear with me.

I look back at the year and I realize how much I’ve learned since December 12, 2007 and December 12, 2008. I didn’t realize I would learn so much in just a year. Yea, it’s really crazy. But I think I’ve grown a little more and matured a little more. Ok, so I’m still the child at heart at age 24. Aren’t we all, though?

What’s cool though is that I share my birthday with one of my favorite singers: Frank Sinatra! Unfortunately, I also share my birthday with someone who wants you to control the pet population and have your pets spayed or neutered. You are absolutely right! Bob Barker! I guess I can’t pick and choose who I want to celebrate my birthday alongside with.

I found a few links that might prove to be interesting on December 12th birthdays:
