Two Signs that Puzzled Me

Walking on Elgin Street today, I glanced into the Standard. Their chalkboard said "Hockey, Sushi, Quarts... What more could you want?"

Even though watching hockey bores me, nothing leapt to mind.

But, it looks like they erased something between "Hockey" and "Sushi".

Could it be there is something more you could want that they ran out of?


On Gladstone, I passed this car with a bumper sticker directing us to support organic farmers. Do you think there might be a more effective way to promote the people who grow food without using synthetic fertilisers, pesticides and growth regulators than by placing stickers on gasoline-powered vehicles?

Amanda, I would have had the same reaction. I bought a book from Jennifer Whiteford once before I formally met her, but I was too shy to say, "hey, I'm one of the people who comments on your blog."
