Today's entry brought to you by the letter "J"

Maybe some of you who are into incense-burning knew about this a long time ago, but I had never heard of it before. While I was out grocery shopping today, I was catapulted into fangirl mode when I noticed the collection of assorted "Joss Sticks" on display near the register.

To top this off, however, I came home and Googled "Joss Sticks" to see how common they are. I came across this Guiness World Record article about the Worst Joss Stick Disaster when three giant joss sticks collapsed...at a Jedi temple.

What are the odds?

Also, prompted by finabair, I thought I'd post my event calendar for the rest of the year (as it stands at the moment).

1. 2005 World Expo July 17th (and possibly 18th), in Aichi Prefecture. I will be attending with melf42 and wednesday_10_00.

2. Comic Market 68 August 12-14 at Tokyo Big Sight with wednesday_10_00.
