The Valley Of Malls
God bless Indian summer. It was an amazingly beautiful day out – warm, sunny, not a cloud in the sky. And I spent it in a mall. Well, only part of the afternoon, but a few hours, anyway. I haven’t been in a mall in I don’t know how long, and it was pretty amusing to be reminded of why I avoid them whenever possible. I had to go today on account of it being the best place to deal with the long list of horribly mundane items I needed to get. Twine, tissue, contact lens solution… Pretty exciting. I failed to acquire a phone book but I did get some kitchen stuff – for the first time ever, I am the owner of both a set of matching dishes and cutlery (though the cutlery doesn’t match the dishes, I didn’t have that much foresight). By the end, I was pretty damn glad to get out of there. Note to self – do all Christmas shopping online this year. Gads.
I’ve been in a bit of a panic lately about my well of songs for the MP3 of the week drying up. I’ve raided my CD and MP3 collections for material and think I will have enough interesting selections to get through the rest of the year, at least, but into 2004 things might get iffy. We shall see.
Former Jedi Master Liam Neeson thinks the Star Wars films have “kind of got silly now, haven’t they?” I’m glad someone involved is willing to say it.
The Leafs season opener is on right now, and they’re already down 3-0 in the second period. Good to see some things never change.
