#AnglophileApril #AnotherOneBitesTheDust

A book on the “Pirate 🏴‍☠️ TBR” about a cursed girl, magically forced to live life as 100 dogs before turning back into a person, only then can she retrieve her treasure!

Mdargusch What an interesting storyline- pirates and teens and fantasy. 7mo
emilyhaldi Wowza!!!😱 7mo
Reviewsbylola That sounds horrible—to live as a dog. 😬 7mo
CrowCAH @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola I agree such an interesting storyline. 7mo

"We all knew what Vern meant right away. At the beginning of the school year, Vern had buried a quart jar of pennies underneath his house. He drew a treasure map so he could find them again. A week later, his mom cleaned out his room & threw away the map. Vern had been trying to find those pennies for nine months. Nine months, man. You didn't know whether to laugh or cry."
Stand by Me

Another favorite show of mine to bite the dust ⬇️

Suet624 Hmmm.. I‘ve never read Stand by Me. Maybe I should. 7mo
Mdargusch I agree @Suet624 - I feel like I should have read that by now. 7mo

Cinfhen Have u read it??? I‘ve been curious about this title!!?? 7mo
Mdargusch I think there is more minutiae about Victorian life than details about the murder @Cinfhen so it depends on which part you would be interested in. 7mo
Cinfhen Hmmm, that‘s good to know @Mdargusch not sure how interested I am in Victorian Life as opposed to reading about an epidemic ( which sounds more fascinating to me) 7mo
emilyhaldi I haven‘t read it yet... someday!!! @Cinfhen (edited) 7mo
Reviewsbylola I couldn‘t get into this one. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 6mo

Kahiki Supper Club: A Polynesian Paradise in Columbus | David Meyers, Elise Meyers Walker, Jeff Chenault, Doug Motz
post image

If you‘re from Columbus, you‘ll remember the Kahiki Supper Club. It was a restaurant like no other. We always went for birthdays and would cook our own meatballs over mini fires and order the smoking drinks. It was torn down over 15 years ago to build a Walgreens and I‘m still not over it. 😭

#anotheronebitesthedust #anglophileapril

AlaMich It sounds like it was a lot of fun, like a tiki theme. 7mo
ravenlee Kahiki was my homecoming dinner sophomore year of high school. Also, when I was about 10 and moving to Columbus, random girl in my dance class told me about this place she couldn‘t remember by name but it has fish on the walls and everybody goes there - years later we figured out it was Kahiki. 7mo
cherinium It was such a landmark, it was terrible to see it razed. 7mo

rretzler I loved Kahiki and still miss it too! There is a new tiki restaurant in Powell that I‘ve been meaning to try, but I‘m sure it will not be able to compare with Kahiki! 7mo
Mdargusch I love that there are kahiki fans on Litsy!!! @ravenlee @cherinium @rretzler 7mo
rretzler @Mdargusch @ravenlee @cherinium @Reviewsbylola It makes me wonder how many Littens are in the Columbus area. I live in Dublin, but have been in Columbus since 1981 - originally from Wintersville, OH, a small town in eastern OH near the Ohio River. 7mo
ravenlee @rretzler I‘m not in Columbus anymore. I left Ohio 15 years ago and have been back just a handful of times since, but we lived in Gahanna from ‘91-mid ‘00s and my dad still has family scattered around town. I think there‘s been an Ohio Litten meet-up - @Chelleo did you set that up? 7mo
Chelleo @ravenlee @rretzler Yes, I did and we have another #OhioLitsyMeetup scheduled for this coming Saturday at the #OhioanaBookFestival We‘re meeting in the Cafe of the Columbus Metropolitan Library at 9:30am. 7mo
ravenlee Thanks, @Chelleo - that sounds like fun. Hope you all have a great time! 7mo
cherinium @rretzler I am also not in Columbus anymore. I grew up in Franklin (near Dayton), went to college in Findlay (spending my summers in Columbus), then moved to Columbus. I stayed in Columbus until my husband took a job in St. Louis in 2012. I miss it tremendously. 7mo
emilyhaldi So tragic 😭 7mo

“Your pillow alone may be home to 40 million bed mites. (To them your head is just one large oily bon-bon). Indeed, if your pillow is six years old - which is apparently about the average age for a pillow - it has been estimated that one-tenth of its weight will be made up of sloughed skin, living mites, dead mites and mite dung.”

Reviewsbylola That is horrifying. 😱 7mo
Reviewsbylola Also, two of my pillows are probably 20 years old. 😆 I‘ve never been able to find pillows like the ones @mdargusch had. They could be 100% bed mites and their dung and I still wouldn‘t let them go. 😆😆 (edited) 7mo
Reagan-reads Ewwwwww ☹️ 7mo
Cinfhen Oh God! I don‘t think I wanted to know that 😳😳😳 7mo

*Just a few of the powerful and/or famous men who fell like dominoes with the advent of the #metoo movement. It seemed like every day, “another one bit the dust.”
