Strychnine or Cyanide ?

my mum says
you can walk around
the Trafford Centre
all day, if you like, for free –
there’s hundreds of shops,
it’s nice & warm
once you get inside
(well, a bit too warm, actually)
and it’s beautiful,
with real marble-effect Egyptian columns
and starbucks and music and stuff
& thousands of people
milling around
and shopping.
it’s a grand day out, I’m told,
if you’re so inclined.

I bet I loathe it more than you, times a million. No back answers, no barleymows ;p

If it can't be bought online, in peace and quiet, I don't buy it. Exception being the lovely little greengrocers near where I work. Apart from at crimbo when nasty rough old ladies snatch carrots out of your hands like there's a bloody carrot drought. Grrrr.

Real marble-effect Egyptian columns! Its true. and a real night sky effect ceiling and real fake moroccan walls and a real fake new orleans street and a real fake china town. Its great! I could live there.
