Universal Citywalk is truly the Speed Racer of hell malls. I used to bring the kids here when young, but there really would have to be something wrong with you to bring a date here. And of course, none of the restaurants offer wifi. The local Starbucks is closed for renovations, but none of the waiters who recommended that I go there for wifi even knew that.

But it’s cold and rainy outside and I need the warmth so I’m sitting in a wifi-free Chinese joint, morose and resentful.

Why am I subjecting myself? Paramount’s M:I4 all-media IMAX screening.
