Can you believe I've been doing these playlists/blogposts for seven-plus-months now? Or for that matter, that this blog has reached seven years of age?
To be honest, I thought both these things would fade out after awhile - as pandemic stretched onward, I didn't know exactly how to continue the blog, at least as it had been run previously. The playlist was something of a last-ditch experiment (the result of working from home and a paid Spotify subscription) to keep the blog going, and to be honest, I thought that wasn't going to hold my interest for long either.
Right now, things are moving along swimmingly - my Instagram feed basically has taken over the function of my blog in terms of exposing the latest and greatest eats and sights in the Columbus area, and beyond. And the playlists have been a great to not only discover some great music from all around the world, but also really exercise my creative bones in terms of conjuring up themes. So thus, the blog rolls on, maybe not the same in the same format, but still written with enthusiasm. As author C.S. Lewis once wrote, "Onward and upward!"

demonstrates, we're not the only creatures that love to eat
Now this week's theme struck me during a National Geographic show - up until now, we've focused on human-related experiences in terms of food and beverages. But as we all well know, we're not the only living beings on this planet, and what individual members of the various five kingdoms consider food is about as diverse as the number of members themselves.
So why not? What delicacies are on their plates? There might be one or two on this list that humans would at least consider, but for the most part, these things would fall under the "unfit for human consumption" label.
