Lunch lady syndrome

I don't know if this is old news in the U.S., but I was just watching Japanese TV and they were talking about a purse that uses blue tooth technology to tell you if you forgot your cell phone or keys when you left the room. Now if only I could find a purse to go with the latent-homosexual-tech-nerd within.

Odd discovery upon meeting a Japanese lunch-lady: While she was in many ways as hot as your typical Japanese girl, she had a lazy-eyelid and moustache like an American lunch-lady. I guess some stereotypes must be international, or occupation hazards. No Japanese sloppy joes for me though.
