More random Hello Kitty emails that found their way to me recently:
Or did MELLY send it to me? She has my PIN number.
Thank You, HKH, Jeanne, Monterey Bay, California
By the look on her face, that cat still hasn’t forgiven you…
I think your stupid website should be shut down because:
1. Hello kitty hell is a bad website and hello kitty is a good character and is used for good things!
2. Hello Kitty is a character from the company Sanrio, which was copyrighted infringement!
3. I am a Hello Kitty fanatic too! Your website makes Hello Kitty and I feel like dirt!
4. If Japan heard about this, they would sue and arrest you!
5. And Hello Kitty is NOT an evil feline! I’m maddened by the mean things you say about Hello Kitty!
I’m terribly pissed off by this bad website of yours. You are out of your mind to make an evil website! And you are saying it ain’t going to happen, Well it BETTER happen right this instant.
Whoa, somebody didn’t get her Hello Kitty coffee this morning
Hello there. I just wanted to ask you a question on a Hello kitty bag I got for my friend. It said that it contained harmful chemicals and it can cause cancer. Is this true? Or was that put there by accident? — Marwa
No, that tag is not accurate. Hello Kitty can cause things much, much worse than cancer…
Hello Mr. HKH
I simply want to offer my deepest sympathy for your plight. Though I realise that Hello Kitty likely doesn’t take up such a great amount of your life as it seems on the blog (since the entries tend to favor the HKatastrophes), I still sympathise and want to let you know that HK has not taken root everywhere. Up in distant Denmark, for example, the menace has not taken root.
Oh, and take heart! For when you do wind up on the couch, bring a book about some terribly manly subject (or something with zombies) to act as a polar opposite!
Best of luck
PS: The contents of your blog has severely undermined my already faltering faith in humanity…
Peter, run for cover. Now that you mentioned this glaring oversight about Denmark, you know that Sanrio and the evil feline will be all over it…
Could you compile all of Darlene’s crazy comments into one blog? I think it’d make for a good laugh, she’s always so repetitive. What a loon. — KimAnh
and not just once…
How about a “best” of Darlene’s comments collection… (for days when the well of kawai runs a little low…) Keep up the good snark… — Jeff
Why, oh why, would I ever want to encourage her in any way, shape or form?
I was born in 1979, 3 years after Hello Kitty was created. My first memory of Hello Kittie was getting a red pencil box with her on it from my dad. This was a pretty epic present and at the time, Hello Kitty was actually quite hard to find.
I am now 30 years old and still consider myself a fan of Hello Kitty, but I can list everything I own in one sentence. I have a set of chopsticks given to me by a friend who went to Japan, a small Hello Kitty plush where she is dressed as a bee, which I got for High School graduation, 1 hello Kitty pencil and a set of hair clips. Not everyone who likes Hello Kitty is a rabid, scary fan.
To me, Hello Kitty is one of the bright spots in a very unhappy childhood and I don’t feel the need to collect every crazy item that exists. I am happy with the few things I have because they all have a special memory attached to them.
Now on to the meanest prank I ever played. I made a mixed CD for a friend with a lot of rock songs. Metallica and the like. And then, between two really hard rocking songs I snuck an mp3 of the Hello Kitty theme song and didn’t bother writing that out on the CD cover. The first time she listened to the CD she had the sound up really loud and was scared to death by the song. The best part is, she is in no way a fan of “the big headed cat.”
Anyhow, I appreciate the overall message of your blog. Too much is too much. Just wanted you to know there are some sane people who can like Hello Kitty with out needing to get the Charles Manson forehead tattoo… Yeesh. — Jen
Obviously you do not preach what say you appreciate in that too much is too much – Hello Kitty in the middle of Metallica is just downright mean…
