Hi, I’m Misangela. You can find me pretty much anywhere on the intertubes. I’m not famous or anything, just prolific and long lived. My blog has been up since 1999, so it gets indexed regularly.
I live in Atlanta GA;
Decatur Tucker, specifically. I’ve been here since 1988. Prior to Tucker (July 2014), I lived in Decatur for about 25 years and I plan to move back there one day. I was raised in Knoxville TN. Um, yah, nothing more to say about that. :-/
My latest endeavor is getting a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. It’s taken me several years to work up the courage but I am finally sick enough of being fat to do it. My surgery is May 16, 2016, in Tijuana Mexico. There is a section of this blog now dedicated to all things bariatric, including recipes, supplement guides and general advice. I will also be vlogging on youtube here.
I used to be a Mac support tech, graphic designer and web designer. Well, I guess I’m still into graphics and web design, but just for a coupla clients. These days I am the wrangler of IndigoDragon Studios, Player One Arcade Services, Boneless Cat Designs and office manager/social media manager for a restaurant. I wrangle my husband Nick and his various projects. Nick is a pre-press graphic designer, IT manager and awesome vintage arcade refurber. My business card says ‘wrangler’ for a reason!
On my own time, I cook like crazy and I am working on a cookbook – now I’m thinking about doing a bariatric themed cookbook. I also fabricate jewelry – mostly earrings, but I recently began Precious Metal Clay, which is pure silver. You can find my NEW line of fine silver pendants (and other stuff) at Boneless Cat Designs over at my Etsy. Check it out!
I run social media for our projects as well as for a client. I actually run several Twitter accounts, three of which are ours: I am @misangela, Nick is @thinkweasel and there’s IndigoDragon Studios @IndigoDragonIDS. There are FB pages for IndigoDragon Studios and Think Weasel. There’s also Player One Arcade Services for our arcade game business @playeronearcade.
We’ve got zero human children (because they are vile and they smell) but have one all black (but for white whiskers) Shasti Kat. Cats are clean, well behaved and do not require college funds. We like it that way. I do wish they’d not bring their preymates in the house, tho. ;)
Anything else you want to know about me, you can learn by reading my posts. There is plenty of TMI for your schadenfreude needs. :-)
You can email me at misangela at telepath dot com if you like – especially if you have questions about vertical sleeve gastrectomy. Ask me ANYTHING!
