I assumed that I wouldn’t have to deal with Hello Kitty Xmas Hell until next month, but as you can already tell from this blog, Hello Kitty Hell usually is not accommodating when it comes delaying anything Hellish. I went out to lunch with a friend this afternoon and when I came back, I found this attached to my computer:
Now, I make my living on the computer and having to use a Hello Kitty mouse and mouse pad would take Hello Kitty Hell to unimaginable levels.
me: ummm, what is that?!?
wife: Your Xmas present.
me: It isn’t Xmas yet…
wife: I couldn’t wait. They are soooo cute!
me: (please, please, let this be a dream – pinching myself to know that it is reality) Maybe we should put it away until Xmas (hopefully pleading under breath)
wife: Oh no. This is a special gift.
me: I feel bad. I didn’t get you anything. I think it is better to put it away until I get you something (not realising the trap I’d just snapped all around me)
wife: But you did! I got a matching pair for me from you!
So I sit, with Hello Kitty mouse glowing pink at me with Hello Kitty mouse pad underneath mocking me in her cuteness wondering what on earth can happen to make Hello Kitty Hell any worse…

What could be worse? She could get you a really expensive, but crappy, HK computer with all the themes HK.
That would be worse.
Do you have children? That could take the whole HK thing to new levels – or depths…
You have to remind me that it will get worse, don’t you? 😉
and the reaosn you don’t just take it off your computer and put back the original mouse would be?
and the reason you donâ€™t just take it off your computer and put back the original mouse would be?
I’m assuming that you aren’t married and definitely not married to someone who is a Hello Kitty fanatic. Basically it would entail explaining why that gift was no longer being used and those consequences wouldn’t be pretty…
nope…not married. but i do know that compromise is part of keeping a healthy relationship healthy….but what i don’t get is why not just tell her you don’t like hello kitty and let that be the end of it.
i’m sure there is stuff that you like that she does not, and she has told you that she does not like it.
i love hello kitty!! i’ve got the toaster, the towels, and found this website looking for hello kitty clothes. but i see now how i could torchure my boyfriend. he once told me of “Goodbye kitty”, saying that hello kitty is just an image out of touch with reality, a corporate money maker, but even being aware of that i still love hello kitty, & us women appreciate not being judged for it.
Haha I didn’t know wives to be Hello Kitty fanatics. I thought it was only the teens…
How old is your wife, by the way? (If you don’t mind me asking…) Hey, if she knew about this site, wouldn’t she be really upset…?
Haha I like the site, good luck with it!
I have put on my space, some crazy pics of stuff that I have seen on the internet of hk, the best would have to be the hk shower caps, and shower head
Jeffrey, I feel your pain. Probably not to your extremes, but my girlfriend collects My Little Ponies, so I kinda have an idea of what you’re going through.
One thing that I learned about women is that they don’t always get things for functionality; they usually get things because they’re “cute”.
Good luck, my friend.
I just found your blog (one of my friends tipped me off). I really hate to say this but Holy Crap!! Maybe the next time she gives you some stupid HK gift you should take out that stupid sleeping bag and make HER sleep on the couch for a week and while she’s sleeping pile all the crappy HK gifts she’s given you on top of her. Why in G-d’s name anyone would think that a man would want HK stuff is beyond me. This is so gross it makes me want to vomit.
On the plus side, the love for your wife must be incredible if you can put up with something you hate so much just to be with her.
I think Hello Kitty is cute, but it can certainly go over-board. I think it looks best when it’s on some hot goth-chicks back-pack, though…LOL!
You know, on second thought…I take that back. You’re just whipped…
Wow. Does she really think that this gift is for YOU? That’s very sad.
You really love your wife lol
she has good taste X3!!!
i won’t say whether i like kitty or not because that’s not the point of my comment; what i am wondering is why this has become such a big deal to you that you have pages and pages of kitty pictures and stories. i like reading them because you are funny, your smart remarks and comments are funny. but why is it so spine shivering to have a kitty mouse and keyboard? i don’t even look at my mouse or keyboard, just don’t let it bother you.
Have you ever thought of tripping up in front of her and smashing your fist down on it while you are attempting to catch yourself with your other hand, but you’re keeping your head from hitting the computer/computer table/work area? The mouse will take all the blow, especially if you can land on your chair after the mouse has been attacked.
I remember my first mousepad was of Mickey Mouse and I absolutely hated it. I’m so sorry for you.
Be sure to know when the mouse will crash and be prepared to get one new as soon as possible.
I’m a girl. I like gadgets-provided they have a use- and I don’t go crazy over cute (except kids).
Please tell me you ‘spilled’ an entire mug of coffee over this little gem at the first possible opportunity.
That mousemat…I have one like that, it came free with Hello Kitty magazine in the UK
I’m honestly asking you this, I’m not trying to bash your wife or anything, but does she do this to you on purpose?
