Q: What is a Shimeji?
A: Shimeji (しめじ) is a little desktop buddy that roams your screen. The original site actually calls it "the world's most useless mascot", which will probably give you a idea of it's purpose. It is a cute, but also useless program. Not to be confused with the mushroom, which you can find here.
Q: Is a Shimeji available for Mac users?
A: No, not yet, sorry. Yes!
Q: What does a Shimeji do?
A: They sit randomly, walk and crawl about your monitor, and sometimes double themselves with or without your permission. Sometimes if you minimize a window, your Shimeji may try to take it away.
Q: What does the Shimeji Menu say?
A: It says this, in order:
"Add one" - Click this and one more Shimeji will appear. The more times you click it, the more Shimejis you get.
"Come here!" - All of the Shimeji will run over to your mouse

didn't want her
why are you so nice to me
she asked when i talked down the angry giants,
and i said aloud, i said to her

I am on the verge of tears. Why is this so hard? I think furiously, twirling the cylinder of Chapstick around in my fingers. I shut my eyes tight and try again.
I reach out to set the Chapstick on the nightstand beside my bed, but seconds after I release the tube I have to grab it again. Wrong, the brain wasps tell me, you have to get it just right.
I briefly consider hurling the thing across the room, but I know that I’ll just have to get out of bed to pick it up again. I am trapped in my own compulsions.
I know it’s stupid, and that’s part of what’s bothering me so much. Why can’t I just p
