High Fest ’09
Happy Sunday beautiful people! Saturday was absolutely ridiculous. Get ready for a glimpse of spring in Athens, Ohio.
I started my day like any good foodie–with a breakfast normal college students would wonder, “what the hell is that orange mess?”
Then I showered, decided what to wear, slathered my body with SPF 30, snacked on half a piece of raisin bran bread, called Muffin to find where to meet her, and set out for High Fest 2009.
Every house on High Street put on a huge party, thus creating an entire street-long fest. Houses get sponsors, bands and most importantly, kegs. Ewww keg beer is a no-go for this priss. The day started calmly. I was greeted by this sign at one of the first houses we visited:
This sign cracked me up! It’s not even a play on words or anything. The boys who masterminded that are just that brilliant. The fests are always full of fun-loving party-goers. Here is a view of a backyard filled with a beer pong table and thirsty college kids:
Jest Beatz, a friend of mine, is a very talented rapper. Check him out on myspace or youtube. Anyway, he performed and it definitely set the tone for the rest of the day. Muffin and I were pumped. Look at him in action:
Muffin and I stayed in that backyard for an hour or so, and then we headed to a different fest, Ark Fest. I was shocked to find that the crowd there was significantly larger:
I also spotted J.Beatz again and had a chance to chat for a while. Here is a pic of me and the man who shall become famous soon enough:
By the time Muffin and I got back to High Fest, complete debauchery had taken the streets. It wasn’t to the point where everyone was disgustingly stumbling yet, but it was getting there:
I spent a good chunk of time at the house next to Muffin’s. It was a mini high-school reunion over there, and I had a great time catching up with everyone! While I was chatting I spotted a cute German Shepherd that an old friend from high school got a couple days ago. He got the dog off Craigs List, and I was told the dog was trained and friendly. After putting my palm up for the dog to sniff, I proceeded to pet his ears and scratch behind them. I guess he didn’t like that at all. I got bit by the German Shepherd! It wasn’t that bad, though:
Eats were few and far between yesterday. I know that’s bad, but sometimes you just forget. Muffin and I went to Jimmy John’s–a first for me. I think it’s overpriced, but at least the ingredients are fresh (assumedly) and the french bread is bomb. I got the vegetarian with no cheese, no mayo and a side of Skinny Chips (which I split with Muffin):
We headed back to Muffin’s and took a nap. I needed it! The hot sun and all-day festivities can be draining. When I awoke, I looked out the bedroom window and spied this:
I know it’s not nice of me, but I kinda get a kick out of it when the beer tears start to roll in. I didn’t stay out late at all. MisterMan picked me up at 8ish, and I went back to my house, snacked, got into my PJs, and called it a night. I did have a fabulous fest-filled day.
I hope you enjoyed a look into the craziness that is Ohio University in the spring! Much love.
Ciao for now,
