tuna fingers: Having lived in Denver for an aeon and now El Paso, I've never set foot in an Ikea.I guess I could go in one while on vacation. But nah.
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: So, somebody went to the food section of Ikea...and...bought...food?wow.
Rev. Skarekroe: Never been to Ikea - is it worth it just for some lunch?
The Angry Hand of God: Rev. Skarekroe: Never been to Ikea - is it worth it just for some lunch?I don't mind going there with my girlfriend when we don't have much money. The one near me has a fairly decent eatery upstairs, then close to the registers downstairs there is the hotdog/cinnamon roll place. For $2 you can get 2 hotdogs, a bag of chips, and a soda. 50 cent hotdogs are awesome. One of these days I am going to achieve my life goal of eating $5 worth.I sound fat, and poor.
Um Yeah: I am addicted to the ABBA Kalles Caviar.It is creamed fish eggs that comes in a toothpaste tube./cool story bro
Close2TheEdge: Cue the "IKEA furniture is crap" elitists in 3...2...1
realmolo: Close2TheEdge: Cue the "IKEA furniture is crap" elitists in 3...2...1Well, it *is* crap. Is it functional? Yeah. Is it attractive? Some of it. Is it well-made? Hell no. It's basically prettier Wal-Mart furniture. And that would be fine, if it was REALLY CHEAP. But it's not.
Pocket Ninja: Sometimes, when you endeavor to write an article such as this one, you hatch upon an idea that seems so quirky, so innovative and clever and fun, that you worry during the composition that you might be playing it too safe. You have, of course, the natural comic's understanding of the power of brevity, a keen comprehension of the importance of getting in, making the joke, and getting out before the real laughter has even started. You know that to belabor a point can lose your audience, leave them cold, leave them staring at you with a cold and sullen silence.And yet, you worry. What, after all, of the writer who cuts himself too short? Who, out of fear of a fickle audience tuning out, self-edits to the point of losing the meat and heft that the piece actually requires? What if this is the time that, in cutting your word count by half, did you lose the very soul of what you intended to say? What if this is the time that you clipped away so much of the edge that the heart of the matter was lost? Did you cut too close to the quick?Oh, the struggles. The questions? Is this the time? Is this the time that you've gone not too long, but too short? Is this the time that you've denied yourself the space you truly need to express your idea? Is this the time that you've allowed your own fear to control your creative energy?The only thing you have to fear is fear itself. And you shall not fear. This time, you shall not fear. This time, you shall write, and you shall let the words fall where they may. This time, you will not doubt. This time, you will express the full breadth of your wit. You will compose, and you will draft, and you will add and watch the words grow upon the screen and this time you shall sit back and this time you shall post and this time you shall enjoy the full measure of your merit. Which is to realize, alas, that this was not the time.
radioman_: We drove Ikea put of our town before it was even built, so I've never been in one. The city was going to use eminent domain to take people's homes for the Ikea. The people can win if we fight hard enough.
FrancoFile: Um Yeah: I am addicted to the ABBA Kalles Caviar.It is creamed fish eggs that comes in a toothpaste tube./cool story broI'll take a chance on that.
Amberwind: Um Yeah: I am addicted to the ABBA Kalles Caviar.It is creamed fish eggs that comes in a toothpaste tube./cool story broI've never quite trusted that stuff. I usually buy the $4 jar of herring roe on the shelf next to those tubes./I like the way the eggs pop in my mouth.
ErinPac: They have a grocery section? Not just a cafeteria? Seems an odd place to buy groceries...
cr0sh: had watched something on Discovery channel (or TLC?), back when we had television
