Today in a thrift shop I spotted a book called, The History of Prostitution. I was about to pick it up when I noticed that the cover was smeared with a sticky-looking white substance. Instantly flashing back to my conversation this morning with [livejournal.com profile] canandagirl over "venereal disease" vs. "sexually transmitted disease," I fled the store like a vice cop was after me.

On a less disgusting note, black sesame Pocky is now in stores. It is the best thing ever, unless you hate black sesame. COincidentally, the LA Times has an article on the booming popularity of desserts that use black sesame as a flavoring. Why can't I find any of those desserts? I also tried Montblanc (chestnut pastry) Pocky, but it was too sweet for my taste. Generally the "decorer" line, with two layers of icing, is too sweet for me.

In case you were wondering, This is Pocky. It's addictive. There are also many savory flavors, such as salad, tomato, fried, cheese and potato, and Hokkaido butter, which are not listed on that website.

I am sure everyone has seen this already who is interested, as it was all over my friendslist when the latest chapter of Saiyuki reload came out in Japan in "Zero Sum," but here it is, just in case you are interested and haven't seen it, or enjoy drawings of beautiful, not-quite-human men in general, and don't mind a mild sort-of spoiler for the face of Youkai Hakkai, oh my God. Hakkai is the guy in my icon. He has another form, whose face has been revealed for the first time after fifteen volumes of foreplay suspense. Amazingly, it is not a let-down.

[livejournal.com profile] campfuckudie is seriously addictive, and I advise everyone to stay away unless they want to be sucked in for hours and hours. This goes double for all Saiyuki fans, as the ikkou are all there and their players are all really good, especially the one playing Hakkai.
