Deep Background...

After watching the Mavs finding new ways to lose basketball games today, I felt inspired to give my own personal brand of failure by writing a blog post.

I'm not sure if our local mall is indicative of others in Texas, but it has some aspects that I suspect are unique.

1. A huge granite slab displaying the Ten Commandments[flanked by Bath and Body Works on one side and Things Remembered on the other]

2. A used car lot in the parking lot [the previous tenant was a manufactured housing dealer]

3. "Live" "Music" [I place quotes around live because yes, the folks are alive and it is music, but...]

4. The local CBS Affiliate is housed in this mall. [I wish I had something quippy to add]

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not trashing 'my' mall. Far from it. Where else can I buy:

Vinyl stickers of Calvin peeing on various car company logos?
Highly realistic machine gun replicas that fire rubber BBs?
Pocket sized scales that are incredibly accurate and easily concealed?
My choice of Two [2!] Alltel stores?
Try the California Roll.
