Thanks to Hertz, I have temporary wheels, and so I will be in Columbus and then Kentucky and then Columbus again starting later this evening and ending sometime on Sunday. This will be my first vacation since I took my current job (and my only non-migraine-related PTO usage).
Unfortunately, Outland is not open (so no goth-industrial components to the trip), although I might instead make it to gallery hop.
Maybe I'm living in the past in the sense that visiting another city is the best shot I have at having an enjoyable weekend, even long after most people I know have left town, but that thought should not spoil it.Places to visit:
- Town Addiction - I used to have weekly philosophy gatherings there. That was awesome - we may not have ever focused on a particular philosopher or any readings, but we generally picked a topic and talked in depth about our ideas and other ideas we'd like to toss out there. They had good patries too.
- Indian Oven - Amazing Indian Restaurant
- Micro Centre - A real computer store, much better than CompUSA.
- Park of Roses
- Bento go-go - Beloved 24-hour teashop Insomnia used to be there, but the replacement, a nice place to grab (and possibly eat) Bento is handy
- Victoria's Midnight Cafe - When there's no local poetry ruining the experience, it's a grand place to hang out
- Shaare Punjab - different kind of Indian food
- Places I used to live - maybe
- That fantastic salad place which has a name I don't recall
- Macaroni Grill - maybe if there's nothing else to do
I hope the SSA Conference is not terribly boring. I regret not heading there on a weekday so I could hang out on the Oval and see if any of the old preachers I used to debate are still there (I hear they have new ones). I'd particularly like to say hi to Brother Tom and Brother Jed.
- As part of a project at work, I had to learn the Google Maps js API. It's a bit clumsy for what I'm doing, but it's still kinda neat.
- Ordered a new digital camera (Powershot G10) to replace my old one (Powershot G1).
