Really?? Excellent news!

My Twitter feed just spit out some tweets about a labor protest at the Walmart in Factoria (about 10 miles from where I sit).  Yawn, another protest at Walmart.

I love Walmart myself.  I totally get that I am regarded as a horrible, misguided, enemy of the people for this opinion but I don't care. I love Walmart.  Black Friday protest.  BFD.

But, wait, there's a Walmat in Factoria?????!!!!!!  Holy crap!  This is huge!!!  I love urban living but the downside is that we don't get cool stuff like Walmart or Red Lobster or Sonic or Popeye's.  We have to get on the highway and drive 30 minutes to get to any of those places and now... I'm finding out that they've put in a Walmart 15 minutes away???

The shopping center it's in has been abandoned and/or filled with crap for years.  The Target store that is there is not worth the trip on its own. The movie theater next door isn't either.  But combined with Walmart... hmmmm

There is also a really nice animal shelter right there.  I do not want another cat. I do not want another cat. I cannot go near the place because I do not want another cat.  But they also have the cutest dogs. I do not want a dog.  The last time I was there, I saw this couple carrying out an adorable dog in their arms and he had this look on his face of such "I just got ADOPTED!!!!" joy. The image is burned on my brain.

But anyway, the big news du jour is that finally I have a Walmart in spittin' distance!!  Yahoooo!!!!
