A jar of wishing Stars

In Asian culture they are given to loved ones, usually to grant the receiver a wish. I've tried making a few and by the time I filled half the jar, I gave up and lazily filled it with stuffing instead. If you're lucky enough to receive one, be thankful, their effort is a good beginning to whatever the heart desires.

Naming a star...
Want to permanently ink your name into the heavens? Think again. And more over, these "star registries" aren't even affiliated with the International Astronomical Union, the only legitimate authority. Even the Library of Congress doesn't want to be affiliated with any of these bogus companies.

The best bet is to go camping on a clear sunny weekend, and spend an evening camping outside looking up toward the stars with a cup of whatever makes you happy.
