I don't know how long ago this nodeshell was created, but for some reason I got the idea into my head to fill it. This took me longer than I had expected - a couple of days, in fact. But the result is hopefully amusing if not terribly accurate - I welcome any corrections and additions. It should be noted that Sanrio probably does not use any of these phrases when marketing Hello Kitty products around the world.
