About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, Snap.com commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets, TheOnion.com, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. I was the same way in London: 1) hey, I’m in London, so I’m taking pictures of EVERYTHING, because they’re pictures I took when I was in London!, and 2) I also ended up giving quite a bit of my money to the musicians. Though I didn’t see that many of them; they were mostly in the Tube stations.

    Again, thank you so much for sharing these memories with us.

    • Exactly!

      Since I probably will never get back to France anytime soon, I want to be able to recall every second of my time there.

      PS. You’re very welcome for sharing. I’ve got about 800 more to go, though, so you might not be thanking me by the time I’m all through. 😉

  9. I giggled like mad at the … er … soft focus interior snaps. But still, that photo of the rose window was really good. I’d forgotten how impressive Notre Dame is. It’s really amazing.

        Diplomatic … that’s me!

        ::laughs::

        It really looks as if you had a wonderful time; I really have to get UberGeek over there. It’ll probably be after we go to New Zealand though.

      • Husband and I, other than our honeymoon, have been nowhere.

        I had resigned myself to not being able to travel until we retired.

        Sometimes I like being proved wrong.

      • I’m so glad you were able to take this trip. Travel is eye-opening to so many things. I do with we all could manage it. That there was some sort of global ‘year abroad’ for seniors in high school — or a general world community service project that we all took part in that year after school is out.

        Okay, I realize I’m a bit idealistic here — actually I think I’m going to use this idea for something! I have no idea what, but something.

        I really love talking to you!

        ::smooch::

        Do you read The Onion?

        ~Angela

        PS. I’d read anything you’ve written. Even if it was on a cocktail napkin.

        PPS. I love (and miss) talking to you too. We should remedy that.

      • I do read The Onion on occasion — it makes me laugh each and every time! Such clever writing.

        I hadn’t been thinking about the pubs in Europe — but that too could be fun and maturing (and a little eye-opening.)

        I think I’m going to smooch you silly for that wonderful P.S. And we definitely have to remedy the second one!
