The week's wind down: restaurant hopping, Doomsday Preppers, and Pinterest

(Tempura Asparagus from The Cazbah and Tempura Broccoli from Nantucket Seafood Grill)
Restaurant hopping is my new favorite thing.  In downtown Greenville one night this week I hit The Cazbah, Nose Dive, and Nantucket Seafood Grill with a foodie-friend.  Fried veggies were the theme of the night (by accident) and we drank our way through some great wine.  Big thank you to the Chef at Nose Dive for letting me order the fry trio, even though it wasn't on the menu any longer. Three kinds of fries, sweet potato and then two regular fries with two different flavors of salt (lime and ?), with a sides of ketchup and truffle mayo (this was super yum).  This is what happened before I snapped a picture. We demolished them!

It's the end of the world as we know it.
Have you seen Doomsday Preppers on the National Geographic Channel?  These people stockpile food, supplies, and occasionally weapons in preparation for the end times and have elaborately mapped out escape plans in case the power grid goes down, a the poles shift, or some other grand catastrophe strikes and the world goes nuts.  Experts rate the effectiveness of their plans to see if they would actually have a chance of survival. Okay, so I agree that something big is very likely in our lifetime... why not?  And some preparation is a good thing, but really? Please watch this show just once.  I guarantee it will be party conversation soon.  (I rescued you from boredom.  You are welcome.)

Pinterest is not Facebook.
A little rant: About four months ago, I found out about Pinterest and was immediately obsessed.  A delay, then the world finds out about Pinterest and floods it with really boring stuff.  People, stop doing that! No one is going to repin pics of your family accept, well, your family or closest friends and if other people are doing it, well, they may be someone you might want to be worried about. Also, pinning new material every now and then instead of repinning pins is a nice gesture.  It's like contributing to the potluck instead of coming to the party and mooching. Keep in mind it's supposed to be a creative idea board, not a personal photo album featuring Bubba the cat.  Also, please refrain from posting anything related to the bodily functions of humans or animals.  That's just gross. The end.
