|3am: You're a Fat Slob and No One Loves You|

In what was supposed to be my own sort of Super Size Me stunt, I did Yourself! Fitness for almost thirty days before being asked to knock it off by my downstairs neighbors (you can read all about it in this month's Computer Games Magazine). That was about a month or so ago. So today, since I didn't feel like going to the gym, I booted up the game and was greeted by Maya, the virtual trainer.
"Hey, you've been missing your workout sessions lately," she said at the title screen. 'Lately' was her shorthand way of saying 'the entire last month'. "I know your schedule keeps you busy, but just remember: if you don't make time for yourself, who will?"
I'm not sure what that means, but it sure got me thinking. Not even Seaman was so ruthlessly effective at reminding me of the futility and loneliness of human existence. Thanks, Maya.
