Village of Commerce

I ventured out to Jackson Heights in Queens on Saturday, a land where suburban retail stores meet faux-tudor archictecture, creating a Village of Commerce--a magical land where one can find anything. Like this action figure from a KB Toy Store:

What's truly great about this figure is not just that the character's name is "The Meat," but that, like all of the other Rocky action figures, it has the name of the bout. Rocky vs. The Meat.

That's how I feel every day. I'm always vs. The Meat.

We popped into Patel Brothers, an Indian Grocery, to see if there were any spices I needed to add to my collection. I was tempted by this "authentic Indian dish."

Oh doughboy. Cuddly in any culture.
