Character Interview with Rachel Angeletti from 'Touching Death'

We’re thrilled to be talking to Rachel Angeletti from Becky Johnson’s, Touching Death.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Rachel.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

I’m twenty-eight and a curator at the Chicago Museum of Anthropology and Archeology.

Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?

My hair. It’s thick, black, and curly.

What would I love the most about you?

I’m a great friend. I’m loyal and always there for the people I love. I also have great fashion sense!

What would I hate the most about you?

I have horrible taste in men. I mean really, deplorable taste in men.

Where do you go when you are angry?

The light hall in the museum. It’s quiet and the lights and colors make the real world seem far, far away.

What makes you laugh out loud?

Samuel Cartwell, but don’t tell him that. He’ll never let me forget it.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

Not much. Maybe a jar of pickles.

What is your most treasured possession? 

The St. John of the Cross medallion that my Nonna gave me. It may not be worth much, but it means everything to me.

What is your greatest fear?

Having everyone find out just how much of an idea I was over Robert.

What is the trait you most not like about yourself?

I can be a little snobbish. I really like nice clothes.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

She did a pretty good job. Maybe sometimes she was a little too honest.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

No drama. No death. No unexpected visions. I don’t think it’s too much to ask.

What are three must haves when shopping at the grocery store?

Money? Isn’t that sad. I don’t get much choice in what I eat right now.

I’m opening up your cabinet.  What foods do I see?

Cup of noodles and cereal.

If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?

My nose a little smaller and my height a little taller.

Are you a loner or do you prefer to surround yourself with friends?

I’ve become a bit of a loner, but I used to love to be surrounded my friends. I guess that’s what happens when you lose everything.

Who is your best friend?

Kat. She is amazing.

Do you have children?

No, much to my mama’s dismay.

What is your favorite weather?

Warm! It gets way too cold in Chicago.

What’s your idea of a perfect meal?

Oh man, I to love eating at fine restaurants. Now I’m happy if my meal is warm. That’s what happens when you are in debt up to your eyebrows.

Someone is secretly in love with you.  Who is it and how do you feel about that?

It’s probably Derek Shanks. Creepy.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I’ve always wanted to be exactly what I am. I love my job.

What is your most treasured possession?

My St. John of the Cross medallion. It grounds me.

Do you like to cook? 

If so, what is your favorite thing to cook? Not really. Don’t tell my mother.

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

Punch Robert, and maybe key his car. I know it’s a little violent, but trust me, he deserves it.
