Store running low!

Filing cabinet? Brick oven?

We were talking about an IKEA trip ... IKEA, My old nemesis. I got a new chair today and this thing is AWESOOOOME. We held off on the filing cabinet after all! But we did grab an IKEA lunch, which was ... uh ... okay. The best vegetarian option was Chocolate Cream Cake, which isn't really a vegetable or a fruit but hey, you do what you gotta do.

Our third installment in the Rest in Pieces series - here's the dresser, and here's the car. An unfortunate hour of my life - have a nasty scrape on my thumb to show for it. I think I'm done with IKEA shelves! They're built flimsy so they'll collapse on American consumers - Sweden, I'm onto your plan! Your slow, deliberate plan.

like $200 worth of tinkertoys

Going to IKEA is a little like going to grown-up Disneyland, but I have a set amount of time I can spend there before getting fried out. I have the same problem at malls, and encountered the same thing at Honest Ed's, a huge discount store in Toronto (you might recognize it from Scott Pilgrim - and while we're talking about SP, there's no exaggeration about that crazy ass moose clock - it's a horror). I have trouble filtering - basically I get mallsick. Anyway!

Shanty-town dresser

Yuko's old dresser was a good, solid piece of IKEA furniture, one of the more expensive ones. The problem was in the old drawer rail system IKEA used (they've since discontinued it) and The House that Yuko lived in while she was in Rochester. Spacklehouse is a story for another time, but in any event the place was a great deal for the rent the landlord charged, even though it was falling apart at the seams.
 
Unfortunately everything sagged, including the staircase steps and Yuko's bedroom floor.
