Hello Kitty Converse High Tops

Since I was in high school, I’ve always enjoyed wearing Converse high tops. They were sort of my fashion statement while all the other students around me went for Nike or whatever other fashionable shoe was in at that moment. Of course, during that time they only had 2 colors – black and white. It wasn’t until I went to college that they started printing them in a variety of different colors and patterns. In fact, I still have a … Continue reading

Hello Kitty DVD Nightmare

Most men would be in heaven if they didn’t have to fight tooth and nail with their wife to get all the electronic gadgets they want. When you live in Hello Kitty Hell, however, things often get turned upside down. While I do like my gadgets, I pray that we don’t get any new ones these days. I think that the people at Sanrio have purposefully peeked into my Hello Kitty Hell and are having bets among one another whether … Continue reading

Hello Kitty Crop Circle

It didn’t take long for photos to begin showing up in my mailbox. In fact, there are a bunch in there and some I’m downright afraid that my wife will see so much so that I actually put a password on the file. There are just some things she should not see for my sanity… One of the submissions was of a 2004 Hello Kitty crop circle that was made as part of the 30th anniversary of Hello Kitty. While … Continue reading

Hello Kitty Hell Email

I’ve received a number of requests in the comment section of posts to reveal my email so that people can send me Hello Kitty photos. This represents a huge dilemma for me. I have no desire to see more Hello Kitty in my daily life than already exists and having my email fill up with Hello Kitty photos kind of seems like a whole new Hello Kitty Hell in itself. In addition, on the off chance that something is sent … Continue reading

Sanrio Fembot Loves Hello Kitty

A couple of people left links to a story about a new “fembot” produced by Kokoro (a Sanrio owned company) that has the robot wearing a I Love Hello Kitty shirt. Then the other day I received an email with a couple of links to videos of the fembot: Not too surprising, my reaction to this and my wife’s reaction weren’t quite the same: wife: “Even robots want the heart of Hello Kitty.” The only positive I can say is … Continue reading

Hello Kitty Boxers

See, things can get worse. I should have seen this coming, but part of living in Hello Kitty Hell is also living in denial that things will one day get better. It was bad enough when my wife was wearing Hello Kitty underwear, but now she wants me to wear it. Today I received a pair of Hello Kitty boxers: As you can see, not only are they Hello Kitty boxers, but Hello Kitty is in her famous “1974” original pose … Continue reading

No Fire In Hello Kitty Hell

I read over on engadget about a recall of a Hello Kitty that can spontaneously combust: Apparently the chemicals inside the plastic piece aren’t too stable and sometimes leak. This can make the toy start to flame. Of course, upon hearing this, I mentioned to my wife that Hello Kitty can be dangerous. Her answer? She brought out these: wife: “Hello Kitty will always be here to protect us” I realize all of you reading here are still trying to get … Continue reading
