Anime Body PillowSo the boyfirend and girlfriend pillows aren’t quite what you had in mind. How about the sexy anime babe body pillow?

Just imagine curling up in bed next to the cartoon girl of your dreams each night. This truly is a fan boy’s [or girl’s] dream come true. Get yours today at JBox.com

Here is an explanation as to what these pillow covers are in Japan from JList.com: Dakimakura are ‘hugging pillows’ or ‘hug pillows’ (sometimes referred to as a ‘love pillow’ or ‘Dutch wife’, although this may be referring to a more adult-type item) illustrated with anime characters or real-life film stars, and a distinctively otaku item. This is a high quality printed ‘hug pillow’ cover with a zipper, designed for a long body pillow available from many sources. While many fans hang their dakimakura covers on their walls or use them as curtains, customers who want to have the full-size hug pillow experience have several options. First, you can buy pillow stuffing material from any home center and stuff the pillow yourself. Also, pre-made body pillows may be available in stores near you . These pillows can also be found online … They recommend the Bodymate Body Pillow from Bed, Bath and Beyond

Girlfriend PillowToday on the Ellen show she was showing some interesting things from Japan. First she showed the boyfriend pillow and I thought boy that looks familiar. Then she showed the girlfriend pillow and I knew where I saw it. You can get these from Jlist.com.

Boyfriend Pillow They have a huge collection of pop culture items from Japan for Adults to Kids, just make sure you don’t get the two mixed up if you know what I mean.

The funniest thing about the pillows is Ellen tried out the boyfriend pillow but refused to go near the girlfriend pillow. Guess she did not want her audience getting any ideas about her 😉

I first heard of this during a commercial while my roomate was watching Golden Girls reruns one day. I don’t normally watch Lifetime but had to take a look into a series with Vampires and other occult themes on this “woman’s” channel. My Mom even called to tell me it was coming on [she knows how much I like my vamps].

 Here is the description right from Lifetime’s site for Blood Ties: “Get ready to take a thrilling ride through the mystical world of private investigator Vicki Nelson, who finds herself solving supernatural crimes after joining forces with the mysterious and sexy Henry, who claims to be a 450-year-old vampire! When sparks start to fly between the unlikely pair, Vicki’s torn between her new fanged friend and her former colleague and sometime lover, Mike.”

I am still on the fence with this one as with all pilots this one did not really rock my boat. But that does not mean the series will not be good. I just need a few more episodes to get into it.
