I probably wouldn't have left the house on Sunday if it weren't for two things: checking out the rally to save the M8 bus, which I take every day, and the need for tiles.
The rally was quite lively and well attended. Reverend Billy had an old fashioned bullhorn that looked like a cone shaped piece of white cardboard, and the community organizer had a real bullhorn but didn't over use it. The east side M8 bus riders walked to Astor Place from 9th & A, while the west side M8 bus riders walked there from 6th Ave. The meetup was pretty fun, filling the middle of the street.
The 2nd errand, going to Bella Tile was not productive, as I was unable to get the attention of the lone saleswoman. And, I discovered later in the day that the Home Depot on 23rd Street does not, like all other Home Depots of the world, carry single tiles. Minimum order: 1 carton. I need about 10 tiles total. More tile shopping is in my future.
