Stopping by the local Duane Reade, I saw a sign (advertising candy) that read something like "It's almost Easter time." [I misremembered- see below.] It's at moments like that that I feel like the author of the book "Eats Shoots and Leaves," on proper punctuation, who stood in front of a sign advertising the movie "Two Weeks Notice" with a giant apostrophe held in place. I need to get a "negative apostrophe" sign.

Last night, in another Duane Read, getting some personal stuff, I saw that the M&M's at the counter had an odd colored bag. Yup, they're selling grey (gray?) M&M's. Some sort of "where did the colors go?" promotion. Gotta love Madison Ave.

Edited to correct: I misquoted the sign. It was more like, "Easter is on it's way."
