A while back my friend Alana told me how she was addicted to some game called Katamari and when I asked her why it was so fun the she said,
"Well, you play this prince… and you have this… thing… called a katamari. And you like… roll it around to pick up… stuff."
"Stuff? Like what kind of stuff?"
"Like… everything! Paper, cats, umbrellas, cars, whales, trees… stuff! And when you pick up stuff you get bigger so you can pick up bigger stuff!!"
And now a year later it has come by fortuitous chance that I've stumbled across a sequel to the game called We <3 Katamari. And yup, it's about picking stuff up and OMGTotally fun.
And although the game's been out for a while, for some reason I keep stumbling (yeah totally by accident) across Katamari related things. More specifically, Katamari related knitted things.
That's right. Knitting and Katamari do inhabit a shared Sphere of Awesomeness and dammit, I'm not ashamed to admit that this is now in my knitting queue. And this could be a cute gift for the right person.
But this is just taking things too far even for my geek sensibilities.
