I think the biggest advantage to holding out for a boyfriend that is a ninja, is that someday my man will be able to break coffee tables. The other day I thought "Hmm, I wonder what furniture looks like in other countries?" I thought for sure that you'd be able to buy a Chinese wedding bed in China or a French Provincial table in France. So I headed to craigslist & looked up different areas. I also found out that the word IKEA is the same in every language. IKEA has basically taken over the entire world & here is proof:
1. If you want a cute Ikea sofa in Beijin it's going to cost CNY200.
2. If you're decorating in Paris you can find an IKEA coffee table for 25 euros.
3. Ironically, in countries where you'd expect to find actual Swedish modern furniture like Sweden an Ikea futon will run you dkk250.
I've only ventured into an IKEA store once. Somewhere between the ektorps & the poangs I saw a woman who would look beautiful/normal/confident in any other circumstance. She was standing in the middle of the aisle openly weeping. Her fiancee/husband/boyfriend was trying to console her. The really disturbing part is that no one looked at her, or seemed to think it was out of the ordinary. She did not try to hide her tears. I can only guess this is because it occurs hourly at the store.
Yes, IKEA is cheap. Until you think about the fact that you are paying $700 for compressed sawdust. I envision my dream man walking into living rooms & karate chopping particle board coffee tables in half with one quick motion. A girl can only dream.
Also, they've finally posted a video featuring Tom Hanks' old lady glasses.
