A Look Back at 2011

Here, in the final hours of 2011, I’m taking a few minutes to reflect on how the past year diverted from my expectations. In many ways, it was the year from hell. A few stupid nutritional decisions on my part started an avalanche of medical nightmares that almost ended up with me losing my life. […]

Health Update

You all may have wondered where I have been for the past three months. Many of you had a vague notion that I was sick but weren’t quite aware of how sick I was. Truth of the matter is that I was so sick that they didn’t think I would make through alive. I had […]

A Brief Note From Mr. Columbus Foodie

Hello all. It’s me, Paul. Columbus Foodie’s husband. Becke’s been in the hospital for several weeks now, and likely won’t be out of the hospital for quite a while. She’s currently unable to update columbusfoodie.com, so this blog will remain in archive mode until Becke’s able to begin posting again. I might post some articles […]

I’m Back (Sorta)

Wow – that was a longer hiatus than I planned for. The truth of the matter is that I’ve been really, really sick. There was even a hospital stay in the midst of my time off.  It all started at the end of October/beginning of November when I went to San Francisco and found that […]

Admin: Cleaning Out the Cobwebs

At the end of the year, I’ve realized that I’ve done so much, and rarely posted about any of it. The end result? A “drafts” folder with well over 100 entries in it. I’m going to use January to get all caught up, so you get the information when it’s still fresh and useful. In […]

A Brief Introduction

Original Post Date: 8/20/2009 — I am Paul, aka Fat Bastard, your humble host.  I hope to inform and entertain you in my exploration of food — and my other interests — here in Columbus, OH. What are my other interests?  I’m a dark beer, ale, and stout aficionado.  I also enjoy riding my semi-recumbent […]

Admin Note: Columbus Foodie + 1

If you haven’t noticed, things around here have been rather quiet the past few months. Between almost nonstop travel and catching up with a bunch of much neglected administrative tasks, it has kept me from posting as often as I like. It’s just gotten to the point where in many ways, it was too much […]

Lots of Exciting Things in Store for November!

First off, an apology for not posting lately. It’s not for lack of drafts. When Bloglines announced they were discontinuing service,  what should have been easy (importing my subscriptions), turned into a nightmare. Since I subscribe to over 7,000 feeds, the file was too big to be imported, and I’ve had to resubscribe to them […]

March 2010 Roundup

Even though I broke my hiatus with a few posts over the past couple of weeks, the truth is I had put blogging on the back burner. I’m officially back from hiatus now, although my postings might be a little light over the next couple of months – I’m taking an anatomy class this quarter […]


Just going dark for a couple of weeks – I just really need to regroup and renew and rethink a few things, and need to take some time away from blogging do that. I’ll be back sometime soon, I hope. If you need to get in touch with me in the meantime, you can do […]
