    Born And Raised In Southeast Texas.....

    When I was little I had a VERY thick southern accent. I didn't know it until I was about 5 and my parents got a camcorder. I would watch home movies and say."I dun' soun' like that" took me until I was about 8 to accept that I really did sound like that. I spent a long time...

    I Don't...

    I just got off the phone with someone in California. He told me that I have an awesome southern accent. I am from Texas...not the deep south. I have family in South Carolina and Georgia...now they have southern accents!

    I definitely have a southern accent, and it drives me nuts. It sounds very uneducated. I try hard to cover it up, but when I'm angry, sleepy, or drunk, it is very strong.

    It's not surprising, since I spent the majority of my formative years there.

    I Got Some "Twang".

    My family and i come from Fort worth, Texas. North Texas represent! Anywho, my family and i can never hear it but others seem to catch it. Like people here in Virginia say they can hear it, I can never hear it myself! When i first talked to my love he said i have some "Twang" LOL...

    Born And Raised..

    ..I would kind of be worried if I didn't have a southern accent. I was born and raised in Texas. Although I can control it sometimes, when I get mad then it really come out. I find southern accents sexy;)
