Kit kats again, plus other secondhand tidbits

There are many interesting things in the world today, few of which involved me, so I'll tell you about them instead.

"The annoying thing is that most "Jewish wedding" books assume that their reader knows nothing about either Judaism or organizing events. (Honestly, it's sort of like a small academic conference, only without grant support. And we have to make all the participants wear vaguely coordinating outfits.)" (Read on Baraita)

You will recall a while back that I wondered about unusual Kit kat flavors of the world, particularly the British Christmas Pudding Kit kats. The BBC reports that the bars are selling like hotcakes in Japan, where some consider them good luck tokens. "The name of the chocolate bar resembles a Japanese expression - "kitto katsu" - used by students to wish each other luck before exams. The phrase has been translated roughly as: "I hope you will win."" (via Food Section Appetizers/fs_appetizers)
