Random wibblings of an insane science fiction fan
I'm afraid I won't be able to feed your cats, as I don't likely live anywhere near you. Kidding aside, I avoid malls at this time of the year--it's a pain having to find a parking space, avoid getting into a wreck, and dealing with the crowds once you enter the mall. I much prefer just buying whatever I need on-line.
This is generally my policy, too, and if I have to go, I try to go during a weekday, but I managed to miss every opportunity I had for that. Alas, however, I have to buy shoes, and the shoe store I want to visit is in the mall. And I have such weird-shaped feet that buying them online is completely out of the question, as I generally have to try on about 20 pairs before I find one that fits.I just hope my feet appreciate this.
