Problem is the meatballs only come with ambiguous picture-based assembly instructions that you'll never be able to follow because there won't be enough screws and there will be three parts you have no idea what to do with because they aren't even shown in in the instructions and you have no idea what they are.

I just went to an IKEA for the first time in six months, so I'm getting a kick...

CSB:
I've been wanting a new desk setup for some time, and working for home has really made it necessary, and I've been reading about horrible delivery times, so I figured I go in person. I don't know if "sad" is the right word, but it was a bit of anticlimactic.

20-minute line to get in, the restaurant is closed, and the number of all-masked shoppers inside is limited. There are signs asking you not to linger and know what you want to buy. I couldn't shake a feeling of not wanting to touch anything, but there were plenty of sanitizer dispensers. Otherwise, it was 'normal.'

Who is submitting these? A ball that is not made of meat is not a meatball. Fried plant is not fried chicken.

think the last time we were, was 2-3 years ago in South Philly - $mai_waifu needed a corner desk workin' from home. holy BALLS was that thing's double-flatpack a nightmare to fit in a Ford Escort sedan. think it's called a *taptaptap* ah, yes, MICKE. pain in the ass to assemble, came with more than a few spare parts, but it still works.

you know what 20-years-ago-not-vegetarian-me misses? Elizabeth, NJ. the IKEA there had like 3 hotdog stands around the checkout lines. 99c for a hotdog. buck-fitty for a jumbo-pup. slushies and soft-serve to boot.

/hours-long naps on the beds.
