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.

      • All good thoughts, of course. With my recent busier real life I haven’t been around as much as I used to be, and I was missing your effervescence. I’m utterly thrilled to think that your life has been filled with such joy.

        Naked!Snape? Hmmmmm. You might be happy then to know that I’m working on a HG/SS one-shot in which Snape and Hermione are an established couple . . . they work together and they have a very healthy relationship. I suspect that means naked!Snape time.

        ::grins::

      • So why busier? New job?

        As for Neked!Snape, I can’t wait to read your little one-shot. It’s probably the only thing out there with the ability to console me over the fact that I won’t have chocolate for the next 9~ish months.

      • I’m so sorry about the chocolate withdrawal . . . but perhaps you’ll have other compensations during your first few months.

        Saltines, anyone?

        I had wretched morning sickness the first four months of my first pregnancy. I ended up keeping melba toast by my side of the bed and I’d crunch on them first thing in the morning. It seemed to help, but I was nauseous all the time. Don’t let them kid you about the morning part of morning sickness.

        I also was like a zombie for the first three months — I could sleep at the drop of a pin. I think I snored through every movie UberGeek and I went to. The lights would go off and I’d be out, drooling on his shoulder!

  1. Congratulations! (pretend that’s sparkling cider in the glass) That’s going to be the coziest baby in the country, isn’t it? Can’t wait to see the knitting projects for the little one!

    • Thanks!

      And you’ll get to hear tonnes. I’ve locked the journal, so I’ll not have to worry about real lifers reading all about my recent knocked-up-ed-ness.

    • I’ve been such a bad, bad blogger.

      Heh.

      When I made ‘blog more’ one of my New Year’s Resolutions, I had no idea I’d get this extra subject matter.

      ~A

    • When are you due again?

      You and your little belly are so cute. Me? I already look 6 months pregnant. Heh.

      I’m quite early. Blood tests show ’round 4 weeks. Not pregnant enough to tell anyone, but pregnant enough to start feeling it. Blech.

      ~A

      • I start my 24th week tomorrow, I’m due 25 May.

        Good luck with morning sickness, my only advice is when you get sick of ginger, switch to peppermint. And even though it’s bad for you, a little cola does a lot to help settle a stomach, too (like when you’re sick of ginger and peppermint teas).

        My belly is getting HUGE. I need to post another picture. I’ve already put on 20 pounds and loads of people keep telling me you’re not supposed to put on much more. Bah!

        My other advice is take everyone else’s advice with a grain of salt.

        And congratulations and best of luck again!

    • Twelve? Holy crap. Must be something in the water.

      It’s still very much a secret to anyone I know in ‘real life’, so please to be buttoning up, Buttercup.

      PS. How did your Holland Landing gig go? Or did you get caught in the white outs too?
