Where's Waldo Angela?

Sir D and I were sitting in our living room watching the 9:00 news a few nights ago, minding our own business, when who should pop up on my television screen?

My very own sister.

Because I am terribly eloquent and have an innate talent for stating the obvious, I said to Sir D, “Hay! There’s my sister!”

It’s weird to be closely related to such talent. She’s also the Fireman in the Barney: Let’s go to the Firehouse video if you want to check it out.

This is not the first time that has happened either. I saw her on the TV in a gas station in the middle of nowhere South Texas on vacation once. I just stood there staring at the TV. They guy behind the counter said “um, can I help you?”

I looked at him and said “that is my sister” he smiled warily and took my money and handed me my coke zero.

My sister and I look nothing alike, and well, I think he thought I was nuts.
It’s like being related to Waldo of ‘Where’s Waldo’ fame. You never know where she’ll pop up.

It’s funny that we’re sisters and yet so different. She likes acting and being on stage. Me? I think I’d rather chew my arm off.

I’ll stick to my writing thankyouverymuch. And I’ll only do it if no one is watching.

I know that feeling- my brother is an actor and he pops up all over the place. I don't have the courage to do what he does!

Oh contrare my friend. I do say, you and your sister in fact DO like a whole lot alike. Yep yep yep! Both beautiful, and obviously both very talented.

I think you look alot like your sister, at least from you blog page! What is she going to be in? How neat to have a famous sister....

You are all very sweet. I think in the blog photos we do look a bit alike, but not so much IRL.

She is tall and slender and I'm…tall. :o)

I got the big bones, thankyouverymuch DNA. She also has a darker completion, sorta perpetually tan, though in the photo she is paler than usual.

She's not quite famous yet, just in commercials and a Barney episode. She's also in lots of print ads. She just sort of pops up now and then on TV or in my newspaper or magazine.

She is at Blockbuster though. She is in a video-release Zombie movie I could not bring myself to watch, as I'm a scary movie whip!
