1. You and your town: a marriage of love, convenience, or necessity?
Such a complicated question! I moved back to Columbus on purpose. I regret it. I regret it, not because I dislike Columbus, but because I could've gone ANYWHERE and I was chicken! I moved back to Columbus because my father offered up Bluejackets season tickets, which have since been sold. I stay in Columbus for family. I'd leave Columbus for love, though. If I didn't have love now, I'd possibly leave. Again, not because I dislike Columbus but for the adventure!
2. A mysterious benefactor gives you $75, with the condition that you must do nothing productive. Where in town do you go, and what do you do?
I have spent almost $75 on dinner and trivia for two at Damon's; you know, the place for ribs. I am not proud of that! I guess my idea of productive could be different from others. I'd take my $75 to North Market and just buy lunch and a couple cool things to cook with later. But is eating productive? I think so! Or I'd go to The Columbus Zoo.
3. You are your town’s tour guide, on a tight schedule. What is the one place you show visitors?
The Short North, North Market, and all the cute boutiques, making sure to stop at Jeni's Ice Cream.
4. The mysterious benefactor is back, this time with $500, three days off, and the condition that you must not leave the state. What’s your plan?
I don't think I'd even leave Columbus! I've always wanted to stay at The Loft hotel downtown, go to a show, get drunk in the Arena district, stumble back to the hotel, eat bruch at L'Antibes (only seen it in pictures and they looked GOOD!), Hockey Game, and eat at one of the nice places downtown or in the Short North.
5. You’re an Ohioan. What about that makes you proudest? The flip side of pride is shame; go there too if you want.
I love that no matter where you go, there is a fellow Ohioan there. And that Ohio is often the "hometown" of a character on tv or movie. We are just the most predictable plot detail.
Ohio bloggers...man up and answer the five questions too! And post your blog in the comments section if you do!
