Ugh, I recently went to the Galleria mall recently after a long time. I'm not a big fan of this mall or the horrible traffic in the immediate area but my son loves the Lego store. To my horror they covered the glass elevator in the main part of the mall with ads so you can't see out of the elevator. How tacky!

That is all.

I love everything about the Galleria. It's beautiful. I'll take the Galleria over any mall in the Houston area.

Darn that gratuitous advertising. I would have replied sooner but I just spilled my coca-cola all over my Dell keyboard and then of course it dripped down the leg of my Levi's to the tops of my white Nike shoes. Took a lot of Shout to get out the stain and then a double-wash with Tide. By the time I changed into my Fossil jeans, this post was late getting posted.

In all seriousness, I don't like ads either but there is so much visual assault with ads everywhere you go, that I guess I am able to just ignore it or see through it, so to speak. I can now walk right by some ad and when someone asks did you see....... my answer is usually no.
