Japan from the inside out

Yum yum the sun

SOME STORIES require no comment. They speak for themselves. Here’s one from the Times of London about Hatoyama Miyuki, the wife of Japan’s next prime minister, Hatoyama Yukio.

“While my body was sleeping, I think my spirit flew on a triangular-shaped UFO to Venus,” she said.


…she spoke of her past-life friendship with Tom Cruise and her ambition to make a film with him. “He was Japanese in his past life, and we were together so when I see him, I will say, ‘Hi. It’s been a long time . . .’, and he will immediately understand,” she said.

And then:

…she described how, as part of her health regimen, she “eats the sun” every morning for breakfast. She closed her eyes and mimed the act of removing bite-sized pieces from Earth’s star. “Yum, yum, yum!” she said, placing the imaginary solar morsels in her mouth. “I get energy from it. My husband also does this.”

Her husband, too? That explains a lot.

Well, his nickname is The Man From Outer Space, isn’t it? Now doesn’t it sound as if that’s a match made in the heavens?

Mrs. Hatoyama seems like she might be fun. I’m serious. Really, wouldn’t you rather be married to her than someone like Hillary Clinton or Eleanor Roosevelt? Can you imagine Michelle Obama breaking her fast every morning by nibbling on Old Sol?

Wait–and this is after I said some articles require no comment. Somebody stop me!

Hey, wouldn’t it be wild if this man were appointed to the Cabinet a second time?

Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    These link to completely different blogs, all by WordPress.

    O: Not always. They often link to my posts. In addition, I’ve had people visit the site because my posts show up through the same function on WordPress blogs.

    I disabled that once, but put it back, figuring that it was harmless. If enough people dislike it, I can disable it again.
