Thinking of a friend who is in Japan right now. A very long time ago this girl’s email address was hellokittywaffles. Don’t ask me why…we are weird people. As a matter of fact, when the earthquake hit Japan she was not shopping for Hello Kitty items but visiting a shrine. Because the trains, buses and highways were closed and cell service was down, she walked the three hours back to the hotel by her lonesome. So I dedicate this post to her, even though her sarcastic self wrote this in an email: “i am writing you from a crack in the middle of the earth…”
Japan doesn’t really have a Hello Kitty Museum (plenty of shops though). But there is a Sanrio Theme Park in Tama New Town, Tokyo, Japan. It includes an entertainment hall, boat rides, “the time machine of dreams”, plenty of restaurants, factories and plants as well as not one but three theaters. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always envisioned that one day I would see a live show featuring talking Hello Kitty heads. (sarcasm)
Anyway, enough with the bullshit sarcasm…I really hope everything is okay in Japan. An event like this shows humans are not in charge, the planet is.
