Two weeks ago I was interviewed by Saumeh and Marty of the Small Gift Big Story podcast. The pos cast is about us fans of Sanrio and Hello Kitty and our love and stories. I am very honored to be interview them and gave them free run of my blogs for pictures of the cons I took Hello Kitty and Chococat . The podcast is now up on soundcoud and Itunes.
The sound suffers because I use my phone and I talk to fast. I discuss my motivation and love of Hello Kitty influenced by both my time in Japan and my involvement in the Furry Fandom. I hope I represented the fandom well.
I Suspect Portland is a whistle stop on the way to Seattle for the opening of Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty at the Experience Music Project . I picked up a mug and macarons later, I shared, in the spirit of Hello Kitty with friends at the mall furmeet.

Hello Kitty’s Subercute Friendship Festival is touring North America until end of this mounts. There were five sessions available , I selected the 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
