Ois guade winsch i dia zum Gbuadsdog!

Check back here throughout the day, as I post my favorite Angelika memories to honor her Birthday! And leave comments with your own memories (or, if you don't know her, just wish her a happy day)!

  • learning valuable lessons from Gilmore Girls: sleep makes us pretty, men who serve you coffee are beautiful creatures, fishing is a skill best learned in a wadding pool, and DON'T SLEEP WITH CHRIS!!!
  • Nashville roadtrip: Loretta Lynn's restaurant; Bucksnort truckstop; George Jones at the Ryman; discussing birthing over bagels (as if we knew what we were talking about); driving home to the sounds of Meredith reading aloud from For Women Only...
  • Memphis roadtrip: posing with Elvis; the one-and-only Nickel Creek; playing in the rainstorm on Beale Street (the cops who laughed at us, the guy who fell off his stool); trying to find our hotel in the rainstorm while soaked to the bone; fixing our toilet with a paperclip like MacGyver; Stinky and Nemo at the zoo; Bethany running from the lion while we fell on the ground laughing - never look a lion in the eye!; driving home (after a stop at Cracker Barrell) under a tornado warning (which Angelika loved)
  • Dallas roadtrip: Old 97's ten year anniversary in Deep Ellum (beauty defined); our lovely motel with the whataburger bag in the dresser and nothing but porn shops, strip clubs and liquor stores for miles - settling on Denny's for dinner; shopping at World Market; Before Sunset at the Angelika Film Center (how appropriate) with paninis and chardonnay
  • A room full of girls and the Book of John... will this Bible study ever end?! (apparently, the answer was "no.")
  • Young Adults outing to the Electric Cowboy. That's all I can say.
  • Knitting/Beading/Whatever-You-Like Crafting party
  • Pimp-Your-Blog party (circa 2004) - who knew learning html could be so much fun?!
  • Angelika's brown-and-black-everything-coordinates-with-each-other-add-a-splash-of-color-euro-styling-wardrobe... yet she still needed advice as to what to wear on a date!
  • speaking of dates... (blind dates, stalker dates, is-this-a-dates...)
  • Canoe Queens: the only canoe brave enough to accept mardi-gras beads from the margarita-drinking, watergun shooting, ya-ya ladies; crazy enough not to pull off in a lightning storm; angelina...
  • Sunday sweet-potatoe casserole at Dixie Cafe (vegetable heaven!)
  • dancing to the extended musical scenes on the Bride & Prejudice DVD
  • speaking of Bride & Prejudice, enjoying anything Jane Austen related (especially Bridget Jones and the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice)!
  • stay tuned for more...

I still fight bitterness over the wonderful way in which you saw Before Sunset...
