More Olympic homo-erotica

Don't blame Yahoo.com for this photo entirely- after all it only made it on the main page because it was emailed so many times.

It's a good thing they weren't for sale...

If you happen to love Japanese products (and also work as a wholesaler) I would recommend getting your rear down to Fellisimo Design House sometime in the next month. Rotating merchandise (not for individual sale to my sadness) focus on Kawaii, Home Design, Clothes, Cooking, and Electronics. You get to handle the products which are beyond cool. Here are some of my tops picks:
Like-It CO
If you live in a small space like many Japanese and New York residence do this fits-anywhere design company is INCREDIBLE! I am craving this Slim Tall Stocker Which would go great in my apartment.

Prairie Dog designs cute towels (you need a nice hot one before a good meal) in the shape of beautiful pastries. So Kawaii- to die

Shuwa Co has a signature Hello Kitty, 2ft tall in full kimono. Need I say more?

Mindwave has kawaii stickers and stationary. Something my pen pal Tim knows well!

Torune is cool because it makes food kawaii. You can press rice into the alphabet or make Hello Kitty Sandwiches. Yum

A little gay

Well at least Yahoo.com shows men can have offensive Olympic photos too.


Yes I am proud America took home the gold in Gymnastics- but is this really the right headline picture? CNN.COM thinks so.

Like I needed another reason

My friends and family (and to a large degree myself) can't comprehend how I have yet to go to Japan. Well here is an excellent reason to move to Japan! According to the Japanese Health ministry, Japanese women can expect to live until 86, a solid trend for the past 23 years. They attribute it to good diet, strong social ties, and tons of kawaii Hello kitty.

OK the kawaii products are more or less MY hypothesis...... But if you're surrounded by things that make you feel young maybe it effects your longevity. Who knows!
