The vegetarian thing was going well for over three months…until I went on a mini-vacation. I admit, I became a vegetarian for purely selfish reasons. Although reading the gruesome details about how a lot of our meat is raised and treated affected me, it was not the kick in the ass that turned me against eating it.
I’ve decided that eating meat every once in a while is not going to kill me. When Thanksgiving comes, I will probably eat turkey. I will definitely eat gravy. I am a bad vegetarian. Maybe I shouldn’t even label myself as one anymore. Ah, my quest to discover myself continues…
Sometimes this is what I eat after I go to the gym (i.e. When I’m too impatient to wait for the real food to get done cooking).
Jon Stewart has interviewed Bruce Springsteen for the cover story in the next issue of Rolling Stone, on newsstands March 16th. As host of The Daily Show, Stewart has talked to Springsteen publicly, but within the tight confines of brief segments. In this interview, the men get the space to speak at length about the Springsteen’s new album, Wrecking Ball, as well as their common ground as popular entertainers with a serious interest in politics.
“It’s not at all surreal,” Stewart says with heavy sarcasm, referring to his friendship with the legendary rocker. “It’s very hard to reconcile sitting and fishing in a little pond in New Jersey with a guy that you spent many years hitchhiking the New Jersey I-95 corridor to see in Philadelphia back in the day. The only band I think I’ve seen more than Bruce Springsteen is the Springsteen tribute band Backstreets. I try not to let him know how pathetic I truly am.”
Like a boss.
