In case there weren't enough harrowing experiences to be encountered on, say, one's bike or Cerrillos Road or both, the Santa Fe Place mall now features a hurricane simulator with
78 mph winds, more fun than a Glenn Beck Christmas Pageant**. After waiting 45 minutes for someone to step into the booth, the Eyedropper gave up and took this photo of the empty simulator. I would have tested it out myself, but was at the mall so, naturally, was dressed to the nines and didn't want my pretty brushed hair to get mussed up. I was also too busy eating free samples and didn't have the $2 entry fee.
**Dear patrons of UA DeVargas, no one likes Glenn Beck. However, the Eyedropper would like you to withhold your booing during his Christmas Pageant commercial so I can figure out what the hell it is. All I can tell is that he's on stage crying with Christmas themed stuff around and says something about a Christmas sweater.
Update: A quick Google search reveals that Beck's "A Christmas Sweater," essentially "a performance version of the book Beck wrote about his own life
," opened to "less than stellar reviews." No shit.
