iGoogle is very kawaii

"The Japanese have a word for their unique form of cute culture dominated by Miffy, Hello Kitty and those big-eyed school girl ninja warrior anime characters. The word is kawaii. It not only means "cute" or "cuteness," but it also points to a fetishized sort of consumerism, a desirability that's tough to describe.

IGoogle is very kawaii."

I prefer minimal and fast to load, but, I just have to play with this. I am part of the 70% that have not used iGoogle themes so far.
