I’ve been taking plenty of pictures lately, but I haven’t been very happy with them. Nevertheless, I thought I should post something new this weekend, so I went out yesterday and snapped pictures of random things for a while. As you can see, I didn’t come up with much.
I don’t even like this store, so I’m not sure why I’m giving them free advertising in this space. Every time I need a little something (a stick of butter or some eggs, for instance), I try going to “The Common’s Market.” About 80% of the time I leave disappointed. They never seem to have exactly what I’m looking for. I even have better luck at the Sunoco! In any case, I thought it was pretty typical of the cluttered storefronts of downtown Ithaca, so I snapped a picture.
When writing the second sentence of the previous paragraph, I also noticed what is probably a gramatical error in the name of the store. Presumably, since the store is located near The Ithaca Commons, they mean “The Commons’ Market” or perhaps “The Commons’s Market” (depending on which grammer book you believe). I suppose it’s possible that they mean “The Common’s Market” as in “the common person’s market,” but I doubt it.
On the plus side, I am happy to note the upward progress of the dissertation graph. I am also thinking of starting a weblog. I’ve been somewhat opposed to the idea in the past, but I have been finding good stuff on the web and am inclined to share.
