IKEA, My Love

:note: Queens of the Stone Age – “First It Giveth”

I have a confession to make: I am obsessed with IKEA. I visit their website on a near-daily basis and dream about all the glorious things I could buy if they would only make more of their products available online. I lament the fact that the nearest store is 200 miles away in Seattle. I have just put in my request for a mail-order catalogue. Somebody stop me.

I know some of you have been dying for pictures of the apartment now that we have all our stuff in it, and I now have those pictures for you! I apologize for the quality – I suppose I could have turned on more lights and they wouldn’t have been as crap, but I didn’t feel like it. I tried to compensate for the poor lighting in Photoshop, but they still look a bit funky. They’re behind the “read more” link to save on loading time for my index page.

Here’s the living room with our couch and plastic container acting as a coffee table since we don’t have one:

Here’s the aforementioned messy floor near my computer. Help, please.

Here’s the rest of the living room with all our CDs and guitars and stuff on the bookshelf.

    looks good. Looks like you have a lot of space to move into as the months go on.

    By the way, I think I saw you in the batroom and AI yesterday, but that isnt the easiest place for introductions, and you were chatting :)

    Anywho, hope everything is going well

    My entire house looks like a friggin’ IKEA showroom – everything is from IKEA. I think you and my mother would get along very nicely…

    I heart ikea as well there’s just nothing better and we finally have one down in Atlanta. When I was living in Seattle I would always see people from Oregon in the Ikea and I’d get jealous- all they had to do was to show their Oregon id and they didn’t have to pay any tax on their purchases. I’m a junkie about buying organizing stuff since I have so much junk, IKEA is pure bliss for that.

    Nicole, I thought that was you! I wasn’t sure so I didn’t say anything (and like you said, I was sorta talking at the time) but if I see you again I’ll totally say hi.

    Man, I forgot you could do that ID thing – too bad I still haven’t gotten an Oregon ID. I still have my Idaho driver’s license. Lame.
