The journey of a thousand miles begins with...the perfect pair of shoes.

Wii Fit is a judgmental b@st@rd.

Do you own a Wii Fit? We do,and let me tell you, he's a judgmental bastard. I hopped on this morning and was welcomed by "Hello {MIHH}. It's been a while since I've seen you." Yes, I know that. I know I've been lazy. Don't talk down to me. It then weighed me and I step on to hear it go "Oh!" like I weigh a ton. How rude. The little green person rotates and my Mii pops up with my weight and suddenly my Mii gets fatter and turns to look at her behind. The Wii reads "Oh my, you've gained a little weight since last time." It's like having a brutally honest gay friend only he doesn't come with margaritas or offer to do my hair but makes me feel bad instead of telling me that while I may have gained weight I still look fabulous in my heels. Boo Wii Fit! Boo!
Yes, I know I NEED to know this, but I don't need it coming from a board. Why don't they just program it to say something like "Wow! You butt must look really big in your jeans." I'm sure the people at Nintendo think it's great to poke fun at us fat ass Americans but really, the comments from the balance board want to make me run for the fridge, not work out. Way to go, Nintendo. Way to go. Oh, and it doesn't just take pot shots at me. It let me know that it hadn't seem Mr.HH is a while either.

I refuse to by a Fit until I'm in better shape... with those kind of comments Nintendo should start selling low-self esteem self help downloads and anti-depressant accessories for your Wii.

You are not kidding about this. It's just rude and surly, I tell ya!

That's hilarious!! Another reason why I should not get a Wii. Comments like that make me want to eat more brownies. ;)

Oh yes, I got the same treatment! People crack up when I tell them about it, now I know someone that has had the same experience!

I agree. I despise the thing. At least the kids like it - skinny little things that they are!

Ha, mine did the same to me after i didn't use it for a couple of months! Cheeky bugger.

That's hilarious, you're too funny! I don't have a wii fit (thank goodness). :)

Am I ready for our h.s. year? Not totally, I'm waiting on our curriculum and trying to decide on a few things. I also need to do some lesson planning/scheduling.
Just ordering new books gets me all excited though. We're also taking a quick trip to Salt Lake City, Utah in a few weeks so there goes my July.

Sounds like you've got some sweet travels ahead...I'm totally jealous. Keep in touch. :)
