I've written about the show Jersey Shore before. J likes this show a lot. My opinion? While watching this show, I can actually feel my brain cells dying.
So now there actually is a spin-off of Jersey Shore called the Paulie D Project. (The show is so successful, there is a spin-off. Good grief.) One of the characters from Jersey Shore, Paulie D, who has hair that defies gravity, is featured.
I was watching an episode today with J. The basic routine is that the group (here, a group of men) a) elaborately gets ready to go out b) goes out to a club c) gets drunk, dances, and meets women d) some of the women come home with the men, and they have sex. The end.
So in this episode, Paulie D. becomes enamored with a woman during step c), and one of his pals notices that she has a ring on her finger. (Paulie does not notice this because he is both drunk and aroused.) Paulie brings her home, and gets ready to go to bed with her. Suddenly, she admits that she's married. So Paulie "does the right thing" and ushers her out of the house.
This is what now passes for ethical behavior. Not sleeping with a strange woman who you just met, because she is married.
I'm feeling my brain cells dying again...

The problem is, this is not how most people eat.
My family attended an event last night, and I made an image representing the meal we had. I call it The Unhealthy Plate. Here it is:
So. Where does this leave us?
Well...there is the ideal. And there is reality. And that's the problem, I think.
