Just gimme gimme gimme gimme/ Fried chicken

I just got back from a conference in Lexington, Kentucky. If my culinary experience in Lexington is any indication¹, Kentucky is not known for fried chicken or bourbon or anything like that, but Indian food (which I ate twice in the 48 hours or so I was there) and pretzels (which I ate three times). Next year's conference is in Cincinnati, and I have volunteered my advice/help to our local arrangements committee, including the suggestion that our mid-afternoon snack break should involve a make-your-own Cincinnati chili bar and/or Graeter's ice cream. YOU'RE WELCOME, fellow conference attendees. (I am also going...

Let us all take our pennyfarthing bicycles to the aero-port!

I am equidistant from the Cincinnati and Dayton airports, but I usually prefer flying out of Dayton.

Here in Cincinnati

I went to see The Ragbirds at Stanley's Pub in Cincinnati last night. They were very good. Everyone should buy their CDs and should go see them live. They are fun to watch. They all play about 8 million instruments each and seem to have a lot of fun doing it. At one point, I'm pretty sure Jeff was playing the bass guitar with a fork. My only beef would be that, although I saw online that things got started at 9, the opening act didn't even get started until after 10, so The Ragbirds didn't go on until 11:30,...

Sausage convention!

Things that I learned at/about Cincinnati's Oktoberfest: Cincinnati (or Zinzinnati)'s Oktoberfest claims to be the second biggest in the world!Life is more fun with a chicken on your head.There is more to Oktoberfest than just beer and sausage (but not much more)German margaritas taste just like regular ones (they were also selling real German style Cajun crawfish etouffée!)There is not much actual walking to do at Oktoberfest - more milling around and pushing through crowds.If you drive around in circles enough in Cincinnati, you will eventually find your way out Things that A learned at Cincinnati's Oktoberfest: Srah is a...

I think that I shall never see an Ikea løveli as a tree

Ikea is stalking me. First one opens up miles from my home town, and now one's opening up miles from my current home. I picture myself as a sort of Johnny Äppleseed, leaving a trail of Ikeas wherever I pause long enough. I wonder if I could put that on my resume. I have yet to see one for myself, though!...

Wherein I don't see the pageant and pomp and parade

Me at 11pm last night: Boy, I can't wait to go to Cincinnati for the Fourth of July fireworks on the Ohio River. I suppose I should soon go about finding where I should go for these fireworks, and at what time they will begin on the Fourth. It will certainly be nice to have a way to celebrate Independence Day, since everything will be closed and almost everyone I know has fled the state and I don't own a grill or a copy of 1776. Yessirree, I am looking forward to this. Fireworks on the Ohio River will be...

Joey and Janis' Day of Fun!

Apete and I had a Real Authentic Cincinnati Weekend last weekend. Or at least a Real Authentic Cincinnati Saturday. First, we went to the Cincinnati Zoo. I hadn't been to the zoo yet and it was very exciting and nice. I've been to the Detroit and Toledo zoos a million times over, but it was nice to see new animals that I've never seen before, like the Takin and the Sumatran Rhinoceros. There's so much to learn about animals! Zoos sometimes make me sad, because the animals are caged up in middle America and being hooted at by humans instead...

Who... dey?

I went shopping on Sunday, as I am wont to do but don't want to do¹. At 4pm, every television in the mall turned to the Bengals game. I don't just mean that they turned to the game in electronics stores or in bar/grills within the malls. I mean that when I was taking a break from the Hell That Is Holiday Shopping (and Gaucho Pants) by playing I'm Going To Buy This For You/Shopping For a Dress For a Wedding I Already Went To in the formalwear section in Dillards, the TVs in that section that usually show music...
