Full name: Angelyn Leilani Vickers
Hometown: Fayetteville, GA (currently living in Scranton)
Favorite Weekender feature: I like them all! There isn’t a single section I skip over.
Favorite bar/restaurant: Hooters. There isn’t a single item on that menu I won’t eat. Except maybe the shrimp. I’m allergic to shrimp.
What are you passionate about? Cooking. I can’t draw and I’m a terrible singer, so cooking is really the only way I can show my creativity.
Who do you admire? My mom. Between being a breast cancer survivor and the fact that she moved us all the way from Hawaii to Georgia on her own, she’s one tough cookie.
What’s something most people don’t know about you? My skin once turned orange when I was a kid due to the beta-carotene from all the carrots I used to eat. It was the only vegetable I liked at the time.
Are you a dog person or a cat person? I currently have two dogs and a cat. They’re like my kids – I love them all.
If you had to pick, would you want someone with beauty or brains? Brains. I really value the ability to hold an intelligent conversation.
My last meal would be … fried chicken, cheese grits, lima beans, and a good biscuit. Can you tell I’m from the south?
My theme song would be … ‘Killer Queen’ by Queen.
My best concert was … Muse. I’ve seen them several times but the best was in 2006 when they were still able to play at tiny venues like the Tabernacle in Atlanta. It was a beautiful, intimate performance.
For a good time I … only require three things: good music, good food, and good friends. Good booze would be nice too.
