Hello. My name is Angela. I am 49 years young and have been an Internet junkie since 1992. In addition, I have worked in Information Technology for almost 30 years. Some folks might know me online as:
- Havening: phoxxy
- Fark.com: phoxxy
- World of Warcraft: Preghiera/Upsidaisy/Magellica/Häagendaz/Mudblood
- Guild Wars 2: Morsmordre
- Final Fantasy XIV: Asa Meshi’mae
- Other: Ramblgyrl, Geekgyrl, IndyGeekGyrl
As you can tell, I’m a video game hobbyist. I’m also a savage baker and cook, both of which I enjoy immensely. I love to read anything, and I’m a sponge with a damn near-photographic memory. I can regurgitate useless facts with equal annoyance and amazement to others, have impeccable attention to detail, and often that see the extraneous in a way that is unnerving. As my husband posits, it seems to go hand-in-hand with my clinical OCD. In short, I have a long memory along with being quirky and geeky.
Lastly, if you can’t handle me at my political activism, you don’t deserve me at my shitposting.
About the Site
I launched my first blog in 1998 on mystifre.net. While I retain the rights to mystfire.net, my Ramblings of a Gyrl blog found a home at ramblgyrl.com in the late 2000s. During my divorce a few years ago, I had stepped away from blogging yet returned last year, creating geekgyrl.net in the process. Admittedly, I am not as involved as previous, but due to recent changes in my employment (thanks, Covid!), I intend to add more content.
This site operates on WordPress, and I use Adobe Photoshop and Gimp for graphics as well as Notepad++ for editing code.
The contents of this website in no way reflect the views of my current employer and host, Liquid Web.
