Gawker Gold Star Motel

I am super psyched to announce I have made it into the Gold Star Motel. Who knew the ramifications of having cancer and being odd could lead to such glory?

Only in America

From an article on a woman who has managed to NATURALLY conceive triplets TWICE

"Holy smokes. Do you know what the odds of that are?" said Dr. Glen E. Hofmann, medical director of the Bethesda Center for Reproductive Health and Fertility."

Gotta love that medical lingo!

Take a few good looks and then scroll down

It's a feather duster!

I know- should someone say something?

Today in Awesome Kawaii photographic news

Fashion week is coming up- I'm so excited I can hardly stop hitting "refresh" on While I won't be attend any shows this round (so sad) here is the invite for Betsey Johnson's show:
I am a major Betsey fan. I've worn her dresses my whole life- most of which look a whole lot like her prom dress! If she was 17 in 1958 that would make her...66. Not bad. Sounds a lot worse then it really is. She still looks amazing and does her signature cartwheel after each runway show. How many 66 year olds can cartwheel?
One of the MANY MANY reasons I love Betsey stems from an incident when I was 17 years old. I was working in a vintage clothing shop where Betsey and the owner were good friends. She would come in frequently wearing amazing shoes (she called them her "fuck me" shoes) they were 4 inches high and covered in glitter.
I now own like 6 pairs of those shoes.
But I digress.
So Betsey came in and was talking with my boss when this famous billionaire and his trophy wife walk in. His wife was trying to haggle over the price of a $500 dress- which granted was probably over priced- but damn if everyone didn't know the woman probably used $10,000 bills as Kleenex- so there was no way my boss was going to go down a cent.
So the guy and his wife leave and Betsey goes "I wonder why rich people are so cheap?"
And I say "Well that's how they got so rich"
And she said I was very wise! Hot damn!
I have more stories about Betsey and that job but I'll hold off for now.

I love this writer- his site is easily the funniest thing I have ever seen. And his blog is right up there too! This week he is set up at the MN state fair grounds. For your hilarity here are some funny quotes from today:

  • "I’m off to the Miracle of Birth house. But if I’m expected to pitch in – say, apply pressure to the back of a horse who’s in labor, forget it. Because the horse ends up yelling that you’re doing it wrong and you’re not helping, and you should just go fetch the nurse and go have a cup of coffee or something. Been there."

  • "Stopped by the Butterfly House, but did not go in. It’s ten bucks, and I’m not a seven-year-old girl. Apparently butterflies land on you. Lots of butterflies. One is cute, but the prospect of 47 butterflies covering my face, proboscises unrolling in search of nectar, does not appeal. I would pay ten dollars to have them removed, though."

  • "Outside the Butterfly House there’s a small stand celebrating next year’s 150th anniversary of Statehood. You can get a free copy of the original Constitution, which appears to be mostly illegible – as far as I can tell, it thanks Almighty Cod for our freedoms. Attractive pins with the 150th logo can be had for free, so naturally you have one. People would accept a bag full of rats if they were free."

And it's a tie!

My first attempt at a poll resulted in a tie for Hello Kitty and Pandapple (I suspect a similar thing happened in the US 2000 presidential election). I shudder in horror thinking about the loooooooooooong weekend ahead of me. I'm going to the...Hamptons...sigh... 10 hours out- 48 hours feeling like an emotional roller coaster- and then 20 barftastic hours back.


I'm doing it- and not going to awesome Atlantic city- because of fear of my mother's retribution. See folks- this is what happens when you can't cut the cord and still need financial help at 25! In Bose, Idaho, where the potatoes grow big, and the cost of living is $5 a day this would not be an issue.

Not to self: move to Bose.

So our new poll will be about where you would like to be, if you could be ANYWHERE this weekend.

Dmitriy Salita

Maybe it's because I have a thing for boxers, or Jews, or guys from Russia- or all the above- but why did no one tell me about Dmitriy Salita?! This hunky Jew is heading for the lightweight title! Any man whose personal quote is "If anyone wants a whupping from me, they got to wait until after sundown" is hot.
You can check him out here:

What the $^%$???

Every now and then I have to pull away from kawaii and Japan and turn the subject of my beloved blog towards subjects closer in proximity and heart. Last week a horrific tragedy occurred here in America- in Middle America to be exact. In Minneapolis, Minnesota a bridge collapsed killing a still unknown amount of people. But leave it to Americans (or rather Red neck Americans) to keep up the good fight for hate! Yes we hate Iraq, and Korea, and Minneapolis too!

Apparently some insane preacher (the unhonorable Fred Phelps) believes " that God made the bridge fall because he hates America, and especially Minnesota, because of its tolerance of homosexuality"..."[his]church called for protests at the funerals and outlined its feelings about the relationship between God's plan and the sins of Minneapolis and Minnesota, which it calls the "land of the Sodomite damned."

Now let me tell you a little something about Minnesota for those readers who may not know the geographical location of this poor little city. It is in the center of Homo Hating, Republican loving, church crazed Middle America. Who is this preacher kidding? "Land of the Sodomite damned?" What time and place is he confusing Minneapolis for? New York City Circa 1973???! In protest I think NY gays should fly out to Minneapolis and force the "good rev" in a fabulous frock.... preferably something with feathers.

To Help with the voting

Check it out! You can now vote on my page! (For like the 2 of you who acknowledge it). Look to your top right and you will see a voting option for the cutest Kawaii Sanrio character! Here are pictures of the underdogs (I didn't include Hello Kitty because if you're here you should know darn well what she looks like)

OK, OK....

I would be amiss if I didn't mention that is was announced today all "Thai police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring "Hello Kitty," the Japanese icon of cute, as a mark of shame". Apparently Hello Kitty's kawaiiness is intended to shame these macho men into feeling like little girls. Hello it's 1864 calling! They'd like their sexist rhetoric back! Whatever your views on the Freudian aspect of this, one has to wonder if the power house Sanrio will be suing for negative publicity any time soon...

And the world keeps right on turning...

My boss is "no longer with the company"

This New Yorker Cartoon is basically what happened. (Without the instant new hire)

“How soon can you start?”


John Maynard Berkeley, Calif. submitted this winning caption

Random awesome stuff to enjoy!

Yes the world is full of crazy messed up crap my friends. Not all of it is cute and from Japan! No, no! Quite a bit of it is from America (most of it in fact). This week is insane weirdness I've found on the net.....

Yea I know it's small. For a better shot go here (

It's Mickey Mouse trying to commit suicide. I sh*t you not.

OK.... So maybe this puppy is from Japan. But isn't this just like a sign from God that Kawaii and all things lovable are Japanse? Is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen? I hope they breed this dog until his genetics run rampent. I will pay top yen for a heart puppy! (PS this wasn't some weird doggy experiment, just a natural acident which makes it 110% more amazing.

My next piece of horrible weirdness comes from an American based website (which I love). They're using an article (probably from Reuters) which covers the false David Beckem walking around L.A. and :gasp: messing with peoples heads! Someone actually said this folks:

"Officials realized the calls were a hoax after Department of Children and Family Services staffers grilled the caller.
"It just smacked of bogusity," department spokeswoman Louise Grasmehr said."

Yep. Only in America could a government official use the grammer of a 9th grade cheerleader.

GOOOOO America!
