My tampon overfloweth

Happy New Year gentle readers! May your 2011 be filled with all that you desire. And welcome to anyone clicking over from the CNNGo article. I've been deep in hiding with a visit from my parents but I had to come out briefly when I received an email notifying me of this humble blog's inclusion in the CNNGo list (I am truly flattered). I also came out of hiding long enough to discover (shock, horror) that GEG has been categorized as a "tampon overflow" blog on a forum, which really tickles me pink. What does that mean anyway, do I talk about feminine hygiene products too much? Maybe it was my unhealthy obsession with the Sound Princess?! Either way, thank you, sweet readers, for your patronage in 2010- really, my tampon overfloweth, and I appreciate your support. I'm not sure how I made it onto the list but if you'd like to recommend a Japan blog that isn't on my (by no means comprehensive) list to the right, please do so in the comments and let's share the rub.

Hi Green- It was me who included you on the list, though I just told my editor that you wrote well, nothing about tampons!

I have enjoyed your blog and would appreciate if you would consider linking to my new social networking site www.japanuscreatives.com for international people interested in Japan.

Keep up the good work.

I found your blog via the CNNGo article and absolutely love it! Congrats, and I can't wait to hear about the family dinner. :)

LOL - my tampon overfloweth. No idea and not sure how fitting it is but congratulations anyway! Heres to a year of non overflowing tampons, good fortunes, merriness and loads of bubbles.

Hi! Happy New Year from Mexico! I cannot remember how I discovered your blog, but it is among the very few I follow periodically, if not the only one. Thank you for writing, your posts just make my day when I read them.

I dunno, perhaps it had something to do with having an "axe-grinding vagina"? Hang on, that doesn't sound right...

Green-Eyed Geisha said...

Thanks for the recs to those who posted some. I will check them out if I haven't already done so.

selena: wow, thanks! The tampon thing was unrelated, it came up on a thread about the article elsewhere.

Michi: Welcome! That post is in the works...

gaijinwife: Thank you. Sending wishes of health, sav and other goodness to you and yours!

Tako Hostil: Thank you and hope your 2011 is fantastic!

Jen B: that vagina thing does sound familiar...I think the word order is what makes it a little suspect/manga material!

i totally think GW shoulda been on that list, though....

1000 Things About Japan is a nice blog, I think. Congrats on making the list!

Green-Eyed Geisha said...

Thanks illahee! I will check out that blog. I am pretty bad at updating my lists but I have a lot on googlereader.

Blue Shoe: Thank you! I enjoy that blog and love the idea behind it. I haven't read it since she made an unfortunate comment about Asian male penis size, which debate drives me insane, but I will check back now that you've reminded me!
