The Wooden Spoon

I took this past Friday off work to 1) sleep in and recover after the midnight showing of Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire, and to also start in on some of my yule-time shopping. I went on my first outing to the Scandinavian store the Wooden Spoon. I rarely drive out into or through Dallas, and I was reminded why on the trip... I nearly got into a number of accidents, I just adore Dallas drivers (please note I was being SARCASTIC)... who don't bother to signal, who cut you off when there's half a car link between you and the car in front of or behind on, and who cross lanes without bothering to look, and think that even if there's only a foot between you and the next car you should still go 60+ mph. Irregardless of the traffic resembling a parking lot, more so than a freely flowing road.

I enjoyed the store, they had the most adorable little wooden fluffy viking statuettes, and no I didn't get any. I did pick up some jewelry for moi, and some things I've already mailed off to their intended recipients. The people there are very friendly and helpful, but as I was sick and getting over a sinus infection, I really had no desire to be engaged in conversation. Especially with a bull frog sounding better than I did.

According to map quest it should only take 45 minutes to get there, but traffic meant an hour there, and nearly 2 hours to get home as even though I was heading home around 3pm on Friday from the store in Plano... traffic had already noticeably built-up.
