Malls and Excuses

To see what has happened to the only mall I could tolerate, take a look at another KC blog This is what is left, give or take. I loved that mall (unfortunately for the reasons it is now a big pile of rubble). It was smallers and easy to get in and out of, not overcrowded with hoards of teenagers and still had a good selection of everything except shoes. Now it is gone and I am very sad.

I haven't got a new book for you today but it has been a busy weekend. Friday, I had a job interview, work happy hour and date. Yesterday, I worked all day and had a friends birthday/going away party/band thing and date. I am going to try to crank out a book or two today in between mowing and trying to get a couple of bushes replaced.

This summer was hard on my garden and it didn't help that I didn't have time to baby stuff along.

My article finally came out, a year and a half later. I don't know if I will get used to the time lag for scholarly journals. Once I write something I want to see it right now.

I'm just glad to see they are actually doing something with the land. Kansas City is weird. There are abandoned malls all over the city. Ya know, in most cities, they renovate them and continue to use them. A mall is a huge investment to decorate once and then let get run down only to eventually abandon it.
