Used properly, Facebook is fun. While it has become popular to blame all of society's ills on social networking, I blame people. People who are going to screw up are going to do so regardless of the available technology. There were people screwing up with smoke signals back in the day, and that just progressed through written notes, telephones, telegraphs, faxes, email, and Twitter, and MySpace. No matter how people communicate, some of them are going to screw up. So I don't blame Facebook.
Monday I got to work on peeling and deveining two pounds of very fresh shrimp. Took me an hour, but it was so worth it. I made my shrimp scampi as usual, except first I brined the shrimp (for all of twenty minutes) and stirred a couple of tablespoons each of regular basil pesto and sundried tomato pesto (both from Classico) into the butter-olive oil-garlic sauce. According to Rob, it is the best scampi he has ever eaten. Whoa. Talk about rich ... it's a good thing neither of us has a gall bladder any longer, or that scampi would have done us in (but we would have been smiling all the way to the emergency room.)
