My name is Angela and I love movies (mostly horror, comedy, horror-comedy (for some variety), action, and martial-arts), video games (but only the inappropriate ones kids can't play), music (all kinds, but mostly rock and punk pop), learning new recipes for food that tastes like crack (I get most of my crack recipes from NYT Cooking, The Kitchn, Damn Delicious, and various cook (crack) books), reading, learning about everything my greedy mind can find (it's true, for fun I learn about the weirdest things, like which animals can laugh and play jokes on each other and humans, how religions differ (Wikipedia is fun, if a bit iffy on their credibility, but if you fall into that black hole, you may never leave), and how those transfer-of-poop surgeries work (okay, so they aren't called transfer-of-poop surgeries, but I do know how they work now, so if I'm ever on Jeopardy! and they ask about them, I'll be a winnah, you hear me, a winnnnnah!), forensics, and helping others. 


This website is named after this weird dog I know, Tristan.  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/Blue Heeler mix and he's very smart, but very talkative.  Most days he lays out on his cot like a two-dollar hooker on a crack binge, grumbling about his "hard" life.  Whatever.  Like a very wise lady once said, "Ain't nobody got time for that".
