A plaza near Hard Rd.
While I REALLY wanted to make a trip to Athens while I was home, the trip became a pipe dream that went up in smoke due to my tooth and some old lady side swiping the hell out of Tobias Roediger’s car. However, we still got together and had a couple of hours of fun.
I drove my mom’s car to Columbus and enjoyed a lovely lunch at Aladdin’s and coffee at Tobias’ personal Starbucks. I gave him his gift (which I bought about a million years ago) and he and his friends are going to hopefully have a delightful time hosting their very own indie film festival with a Fantastical theme. Tobias gave me a great card and a fabulous and always needed giftcard to Starbucks! HURRAH!
When we were heading back to his house to watch the awesome short he and his crew recently screened, I saw that there was a sign for a bar called “Spoonz”. OMG. “Oh, yeah! I’ve meant to send you and Loren Mayo a photo of that.” EEEEERRRRRRRRRRRR, went the brakes as I pulled into the plaza to take the photo of the day.
If you have NO idea why the word “spoons” or “spoonz” is important, it is probably because you have yet to watch the short film called “The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon”. It may haunt you, but we all loved it back in the day when it was in the International Athens Film Festival. Since seeing it, we have all shared the short with our friends and many of them have enjoyed the fabulous and ridiculousness of the short.
I also got to see Patrick O’Hara and meet one of his roomies while I was down in Columbus. It was really fun to be in his college house. It also made me miss 41 Mill D+E. Overall - successful day of visiting!
