Now, I don’t know about you guys, but the annual Christmas break has left me with more, erm, me. Good food and drink has had to go somewhere, and it seems to be inhabiting the region where my stomach used to be considerably flatter.

In an effort to combat this growing tide of lard, I recently purchased the Jean Claude Van Damme book on physical fitness. And so far, the exercises have been quite strenuous. Believe me, when it comes to losing excess weight, nothing beats having hungry dogs chase you because you happen to have meat wrapped around your ankles.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go enter myself into a bloodsport kumite in a seedy Taiwanese underground arena for phase two of my JCVD exercises.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
