Pineapple Fried Rice

We need to talk about Catfish.

Not the bottom feeder, the television show about people who meet on the internet but have no idea who they are *actually* communicating with so they call in MTV to crack the case. AKA give these fools an Emmy.

Who knew this stuff actually happened? I mean, I definitely found myself in a couple of weird chat rooms in the 8th grade, but these people carry on internet relationships with each other for yearrrsssssss.

I had heard of this show, but never watched an entire episode. Luckily, my father is a teenage boy so he’s super into it. He’s all, “Come over – I’m watching Catfish.” And I’m all, “K.” Just like that, I’m hooked. Surprisingly, I’m really skilled at guessing the outcomes of the episodes. Like, oh yeah his crazy ex definitely made some fake accounts and has been getting him to tell her all of his secrets for the last three years – duh. It’s like I can get into the minds of crazy girls or something – weird.

      FINALLY, someone mentions the addition of meat proteins. Way overdue and timely considering skinheads in Georgia don’t care for the vegetarian/vegan/whatever this is kind of nonsense. Keep the Georgian skinheads at bay, incorporate some meat into these dishes!!

    Fried rice and pineapple, now there’s a combo that wouldn’t have occurred to me.
    Yet I infinitely trust you when you say it was the bomb. I believe that wholeheartedly.
    AS for Catfish – I’m with you, I only found out what that was about a year ago. I stopped f**king with MTV YEEEEEEAAAARRRRRRRSSSSSSS ago 😀
