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. …scundered…

    Just as an FYI: I’ve been religiously stalking your blog for the past few weeks and not leaving comments (a felony I often chastise in my own readership) because I’ve been busy. Andrew and I, for a fact, have been talking about your pregnancy, the hilarity of your posts, and keep mentioning to others that “we have a friend who will be having a baby in…[look at wrist watch – which neither of us wear]…SOON!!”

    So it’s time to come out from under the cloak of silent blog admiration and celebrate with you by Posting a New Comment. Angela, you look amazing for just having popped out a 7 pound son and the picture of you two is absolutely breathtaking. You’re my hero.

    Lots and lots of love from The Big Smoke,

      Also: pleeeeeese don’t tell me that your delivery (12:48 pm) was actually ELEVEN HOURS after your contractions began (1:49 am). Please.

      Please.

        The whole labour, from water breaking (5pm – Sunday) to delivery (12:48pm – Monday) was actually 19 1/2 hours). Only 6 hours of that was active, though, and there was only 1/2 hour of pushing.

      • I felt that way with my second one, and it was extraordinary.

        I hope you’re getting some rest and your little guy is growing and sleeping and doing all the things newbies do.
