I've only just joined and edging my way into the paleo lifestyle. However, this thread reminded me of something I heard at the gym the other day. There were three women in the changing room talking about the hour+ they had done in the gym within a class and then on the cross-trainers.
Me on the other hand, was pretty much 'done' from half an hour lifting heavy weights. I know which one I'd rather be doing

Okay so this isn't really a CW moment, just me being a snarky biotch and it turning out hilarious
Had a potluck at work, a vegetarian attended, brought hummus(of course). Looked at me with an evil eye when I busted out my sausage balls, and then proceeded to eat her hummus and not say a peep or smile for the rest of the party. So of course, I get on Facebook and bitch about it, saying "nothing brings down a party like a surly vegetarian"
My friends appreciate this, replying with silly things like how vegetarianism is murder and that carrots have feelings too.
Then, some girl i barely know posts this thing from PETA about how the meat industry is sick, and an article about how meat causes colon cancer.
Now usually I'm the type of person that will just take this in stride and not worry about it. But what she posted was actually pretty vulgar, showing pictures of dead , rotting cows and talking about how meat workers violate cows and pigs with broomsticks and rip out their hearts with their fists etc. etc.
So I found an abstract that disproved her "meat causes colon cancer" article and she just went off about how we're killing the planet with our terrible murdery habits and while i was thinking about what to post to disprove her ridiculousness......
My sister posts: Well I guess Maureen had it right in the first place.
Nothing ruins a good time like a surly vegetarian.
That shut her up.
Travelling with some family friends.
We had discussed getting some Cinnabons in the morning as we checked into the hotel, because there was a DRIVE-THRU Cinnabon place (I have never seen such a thing!). When we talked in the morning the lady very proudly told me, 'I don't need a Cinnabon. I was thinking about putting all that sugar into my system first thing, and figured I should get something healthy, first, to balance it. Then, by the time I finished my bowl of cereal, I didn't even want it.'
I refrained from checking the sugar content of the cereal.
(Oh, and I didn't have a Cinnabon, either. In case you were wondering: sausage patty, cheese, and greens.)
What CW thinks about paleo/primal...
I mentioned in passing to one of my coworkers that I try to eat mostly primal/paleo. A few days later we're both in the breakroom, and I say something like "what's for lunch? looks good!", he says "oh, not something you'd probably like, it's mostly veggies".
Why do people think paleo/primal = eat only meat?!
Mother in law last night told me 'that caveman diet' can give you diabetes you know...
I was pretty gobsmacked
