Tight spot

The gentleman seems to be in a tight spot. He says he is worried about the fact that his friends are dying off from heart attacks. He also says his wife has knocked out his tooth and scarred his head with a vase, but he is staying with her for the sake of their five children and the fact that leaving and paying child support would be impossible. Despite his worries, he wants to enjoy the nice weather today and is expecting Georgia to beat Kentucky. He shook my hand as he left the bus stop and said that he will continue looking to God.

The Grill

"How do you feel to be the only one in here?"

"I'm going to make a wild guess that this is your hamburger."

So the early afternoon dining population of Athens has quickly shrunk on the eve of UGA's spring break. I've never been the only diner in The Grill.

College of Pharmacy mourns loss

Thanks to Athens World blogger Katherine for alerting us in her blog about a memorial and extended viewing for a deceased cockroach. She writes that the memorial and body have been left in place for over a week, and as of this morning they were still there, collecting quite a bit of dust. They are located in UGA's Robert C. Wilson Pharmacy Building. The deceased is identified as Senor Crocante -- I suppose he was found with a UGACard on him.

Chalk

Using three colors of chalk on the UGA campus, someone (or more than one) drew a railroad track from the Arch to the side of New College. It was interrupted by a tunnel for which the two ends were drawn with the word "tunnel" written in-between.
