My name is Angela and I love movies, video games, science, animals, the ocean, music, learning new recipes, reading, and learning about everything I can.


This website is named after this weirdo dog I know who goes by Tristan Bean.  Tristan Bean is mine and my husband's dog.  He also goes by Tristan McGee if he's feeling fancy.  He's a German Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog mix and he's very smart, but very talkative.
