I don't know much about baseball. But I do know it's huge in Japan. And now, Japanese baseball is breaking barriors. Eri Yoshida is the first woman in the world to play alongside men in professional baseball. Granted she's 16, cute to a fault, and wears Catholic school girl outfits. But you have to love a country that gives women the right to play ball- and look kawaii doing it.

(Diamond) Ring! Ring!

For all you people who have no idea why I can't carry a phone without bling... clearly it has something to do with my Japanamania!

"Japan's Softbank Mobile said Friday that its eight limited-edition phones, each studded with 537 diamonds from Tiffany and Co, sold out in just three days.

The phone, designed by the luxury New York jeweller, went on sale for about 13-million yen each:

Oh Comme On.....

This year H&M is doing a collaborative line with Comme des Garcons- a Japanese fashion house- and you'd think I'd be wetting my pants with glee.

But no! With no extra money shopping isn't priority number one for me or a good chunk of the world wide economy. And, shocking as it may be, I've never been a huge fan of Comme des Garcons. If I HAD the $60 I would buy the jodphurs (I have been jonsing for some of those since my POLO days) but the rest of the collection is just UGLY. But that could just be me.

1,500 fans, waiting three days poured into the Ginza store today like they were throwing hundred dollar yen from the rafters. So if the Japanese kawaii girls like it, I may just have to think this over....

What do you think? To Comme des Garcons or not?

Kawaii looks

Here are some of the more "me" looks I found atTokyo Street Style. Sadly Japanese fashion doesn't appear to be as creative and free as it used to be. Is the era of Fruits over? Check out the cuuuuute pink hair cut too- might ask for this at my next styling appointment.

An Open Letter to Senator McCain

Dear Senator McCain,
I was an undecided voter. I wanted Hilary Clinton so badly I could taste it- the combination of experience and pro Israel was just what I wanted. When she lost the democratic nomination I decided I was going to vote for you. FOR YOU Senator McCain! Yes I knew you were pro-life but you were just so quiet about it I figured I could ignore it. Here I am, a 26 year old New Yorker talking about how I was going to vote McCain.

And then you lost my vote. You see I wanted a female in the office, this is true. But Palin is a pro-life nut job! She’s not a maverick! She’s an evangelical, hate mongering moron! And you sir, well God forbid something should happen to you…. And the world sees HER as America’s representative. Maybe if she’d been a little bit quieter about being pro-life. I wanted to like her, I really did. But I’m sorry, today I voted for Obama. And you have no one to blame for that except Palin.
