Some Things You Might Not Know....

I was reading a magazine today with a top 20 list of things people might not know about the featured actor/actress. It gave me an idea to post a few things that are random or unknown about me.....

1. I started writing stories around age 8. It was Fanfiction for the TV show, Homicide: Life On The Street. I haven't stopped since.

2. I almost constantly have music going, except when I'm sleeping.

3. I have to have it completely quiet to sleep.

4. I have to have it completely dark to sleep.

5. I have been on the set of two TV shows, Third Watch in New York and Friday Night Lights in Austin.

6. I have met a handful of actors, including an actor I have followed and admired since the early 1990's.... That one of course being Kyle Chandler. The others are Ethan Hawke, Josh Stewart, Bobby Cannavale, Skipp Sudduth, and Coby Bell. The last four were on the show Third Watch, not to mention most of the actors on FNL as well. I also know the Executive Producer of Third Watch. He is currently the producer of Criminal Minds. His name is Edward Allen Bernero.

7. I am an amateur storm chaser and want to keep it a hobby, rather than a job.

8. I have been to New York 4 times, Los Angeles once, and Chicago once. New York wins, hands down, but Chicago is a close second.

9. I will never live anywhere other than Texas.

10. I am a die hard Texas Rangers fan.

11. Baseball is the only pro sport I enjoy.

12. My favorite baseball player is Josh Hamilton.

13. My favorite collegiate team is the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

14. I have changed my major three times.

15. I have 7 piercings in my ears.

16. My first funeral was at the age of 23.

17. I am an adrenaline junkie. I will ride pretty much any roller coaster out there.

18. I feel guilty if I take too much leisurely time for myself.

19. My family comes first before ANYTHING...and I mean anything. I don't even take phone calls when I'm around my family.

20. I don't like talking on the phone.

Very cool! I enjoyed that list - it's fun learning more about you. I think storm chasing would be an incredible experience - so much to learn along with the thrill of course. Fun stuff :)

i couldn't/can't/won't ever get on a roller coaster, period! hate heights because it paralyzes me. then again, i love flying. go figure that one out:) won't climb a ladder over eight feet either. won't even get on a ferris wheel! the motion gets me. at one time i put a flying gixmo on my computer and became so dizzy that i had to remove it.

I think I knew most of that. :-) I'm not much of a roller coaster person, the height scares me more than the actual movement. It's that trip up the first hill that I hate. My fear of heights has grown as I became older.

Oh yeah, wanted to remind you to write today! I want to read something when I get home. lol :-)

Jemi - Yeah, storm chasing is always developing so there's always fun stuff to learn.

Alymbnenr - you're welcome for sharing. Do you have a blog? I click your profile link and there's not a link for it.... if so, I'd love to read it.

Bud - I'm scared of heights as well. I refuse to do any type of free falling ride...and ferris wheels...forget about it! Not sure what it is about roller coasters. I guess having the track there takes away some of that fear. I love to fly as well. Everyone makes fun of me because i can get on a big bad coaster but not an easy going ferris wheel.

Mary - The trip up the first hill is all part of the experience! LOL
