Dan and I sat down to watch some TV and while flipping through the channels he stopped at Man vs. Food.
Not exactly the perfect show for a girl who is trying to change lifestyles. But, when given the option between extreme eating and hillbillies trying to catch alligators, I chose the lesser of two evils.
