awesomeness: Japanese First Lady Edition
From a profile of Miyuki Hatoyama (wife of new Japanese PM Yukio Hatoyama) in Time by Glen Levy:
Miyuki, an inspirational speaker and former actress, is literally out of this world. She has recently written a book in which she revealed that her soul has traveled via UFO to Venus — a planet she described as “an extremely beautiful place” and “very green.” She also confessed to eating the sun (“Like this: yum, yum, yum. It gives me enormous energy”) and hanging out with Tom Cruise (in a previous life, when Cruise was apparently Japanese).
My only critique of Levy is what’s with this “apparently Japanese” former life of Tom Cruise—uh, hello he wasn’t Japanese, he was a white man living in Japan who became a samurai warrior, there’s even documentary evidence: remember this?
