Convenience, Alas, Is Dead.

I drove past my usual movie theater at about 10:00 tonight, and it was dark. No lights, no cars. It is closed. This is the theater that in three years (sadly and ironically, to the exact day) I have never known to be sold out, even on opening night — which is probably why it is closed. Now the closest theater is the one that has been sold out three of the only four times I have tried to see a movie there (mainly because it seats less than half as many people at a time), which means that on occasion I may be forced to drive as far as the Valley View Mall. This is a travesty whose magnitude varies in direct proportion to your particular degree of inertia (not an insignificant consideration in my case).

Apparently it was sold, and will be replaced with a shopping center/apartment complex. I had been noticing a distinct, nay, even severe shortage of shopping centers and apartment complexes here in Dallas, so to hear that we are getting not one but both of these rarest of facilities is doubly thrilling.

Quit side-stepping the issue! The time portal..I still need access. But maybe just to freeze time, hmmm?
