We're getting a second one in Philadelphia this summer. I'll be able to get my fix any time I want.

I live in Norway, so you can imagine the influence of Ikea on my life. My computer table, chair, bookshelf and glass I am drinking out of are all from Ikea. Don't know about Ikea in the states, but here it is the best place to get decent quality, cheap stuff.

How often do you address your furniture by name, Moe? That's the key question.

I'm in Ikea right now, posting from one of those plastic display computers.

I went to Ikea for the first time last month. I bought bookcases. It reminded me of Dante's Inferno, only (a) less poetry (b) more screaming children (c) meatballs.

I want more bookcases, but I do not want to repeat the Ikea experience.

It reminded me of Dante's Inferno

Right down to the 'Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here' sign, huh?

Right over the entrance: "Lasciate ogni speranza ch'entrate", in Swedish.

Over the exit:

"Superbia, invidia ed avarizia sono
Le tre faville che hanno i cori accesi."

(Three sparks--pride, envy, and avarice--have been kindled in all hearts.)

Over the exit:

"Superbia, invidia ed avarizia sono
Le tre faville che hanno i cori accesi."

And 'Thank-you for shopping at IKEA'.

Which circle are the beds in?

Two.

Ok, now this is funny.

Ikea provides BILLY bookshelves for those who haven't discovered the joy of custom built-in shelving and woodwork or the limitations an Encyclopaedia Britannica set place upon their 66 pound per shelf limit. Don't worry Moe, it's a phase...you'll grow out of it. Soon you'll be a connossieur of fine woods and the compressed enviro-friendly chip boards will be out of your life for good. You'll run your hands over a finely crafted shelf made of Yellow Birch and waves of ecstasy will be your reward.
