this is sam taken at 'lori's diner' when we were in san francisco in 2004.
she is four years my junior but to everyone who knows us we are twins separated by four years. she once went for a job interview where i was working at the time and later the manager told me he was quite freaked by the interview~he said it was as if i were sitting opposite him right down to speech and mannerisms as well as looks.
many a time one or other of us have been stopped by people thinking they were talking to the other and many times i have had people ask me if i am 'sam's sister?'
we cant see the physical likeness ourselves but cant deny the odd...i don't know what to call it, psychic connection~swampy and now we call it our 'spookiness'~we are called the 'spooky sisters'!
it mainly stems from finishing each others sentances, saying the same thing at the same time at the most random moments, texting each other at the same time at random times, picking up the mobile to check it just as a text message comes in...actually it has just happened, i have facebook open in another screen and clicked it open for no reason just as she came online and sent me a message. its almost like we have some kind of internal hot line that makes us know when the other is messaging. needless to say we are close!
last year we started a tradition of having our own little yearly adventures away, starting with a trip to see Take That on their tour, staying overnight in a hotel, then this year we had our wimbledon trip and as some of you know we planned nexts years mini cruise as our adventure.
well, she has had a hard few weeks recently which ended with her ending her relationship with her boyfriend~her decision so she is actually fine which is good.
they were due to go to las vegas in january but of course cancelled so she decided we needed another 'spooky' trip~the end result being we have decided to go to new york for a week~well she aske dif i would go and i said yes~can you imagine saying no to something like that??!!!
so mid january we are off to new york~a destination we have never been to so it is very exciting!
