NorthPark Center is the biggest hoo-hah in Dallas for high-end shopping.

In this post: Not going out, not staying awake, not watching the Cowboys game.

We almost went someplace today until I changed my mind at the last minute. For the last couple of days Sam and I had tossed around a few ideas about an outing to snooty NorthPark Center in Dallas — I haven’t been to a mall in years! — with lunch at P.F. Chang’s near the south entrance. This could have worked out beautifully if I hadn’t accidentally slept until 11:30, thereby destroying any feasible opportunity to find a parking spot and get seated in the restaurant in advance of the Southern Baptist after-church horde. In other words, I really screwed us up.

NorthPark Center is the biggest hoo-hah in Dallas for high-end shopping, featuring mighty impressive retail establishments like Michael Kors, Barney’s New York, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Coach, Tiffany and Orange Julius. They even have an Apple Store. And millions of loaded well-dressed Texans with credit cards. AND VALET PARKING. Holy crap, right?

In other news, aside from sleeping late this morning and not going anywhere due to crappy timing, overcast weather and no motivation, I also took another epic afternoon nap. This time I slept through King Solomon’s Mines (1950) starring Stewart Granger, Deborah Kerr and Richard Carlson because I didn’t want to not stay awake for the Cowboys/Lions game. (If you actually understand that sentence you have my deepest respect.)
Now it’s time to finish the laundry, consider dinner and watch a couple of cheesy 1950s science fiction movies with Sam. Thank you for reading this. Seriously.
