angry reader of the week: michelle woo

Hey everybody! It's time to meet the Angry Reader of the Week, spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I've been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week's Angry Reader is writer/blogger Michelle Woo.

Who are you?
I am Michelle Woo. I'm a pretty big deal (to my mom and dad).

What are you?
A writer, blogger, internet looker-ater, pho slurper, word maker-uper. I'm also awesome at Dance Central, even though I dance sorta like Phoebe in Friends in real life.

Where are you?
Los Angeles, Orange County, or most likely, sitting on the 405 Freeway. Though right now specifically? On my couch watching Adam on Man v. Food eat pork-covered pork, and filling out this questionnaire.

Online, I am here and here and once I figure out how to use the darn thing, here.

Where are you from?
Torrance, Calif. It was home to lots of Asians who wanted to be Hawaiian and pimped out their cars with hibiscus-patterned seat covers and shell necklaces.

What do you do?
I'm a writer for OC Weekly in Orange County. I write cover stories for the newspaper and daily blog posts for ocweekly.com. I also run the life and style blog, Woo!

Before that, I was the editor of KoreAm, where my responsibilities included getting naked at Korean spas, and interviewing cool folks like John Cho, Dia Frampton (pre-The Voice), and that beauty of a man, Daniel Henney
(he kissed me on the cheek, y'all).

On the side, I am the CEO of Leisure in the home I share with my husband and his homebrewing kit. There, my job consists of pretending to be an HGTV star, light chores and amusing myself with things like yawning sloths.

What are you all about?
Living colorfully. Doing more. Trying to find joy in the little things. In the end, aren't the little things the only things?

What makes you angry?
Traffic lights. People who are fake. People who put two spaces between sentences. Advice on "how to balance it all." The deliciousness of carbs and the sad fact that stomachs are not in boobs. Facebook envy. Pho that's more than $6. Anything that gets in my way.
