Because I know you’re all, I’m new here, and so I need…ligonberry jam. The Ikea in East Palo Alto is the first and only one I’ve ever been to. Welcome to the modern world, right? I know. Visit, the First, was with a friend who had rented a U-Haul for moving purposes. At least then, maybe always, who knows,* if you spent more than $100 you could eat for free. I came to the conclusion that Ikea food is kind of gross, although I had previously heard otherwise. Of course, I didn’t try everything…and I certainly didn’t have any meatballs, so there is that. The choco cake my friend got was certainly not terrible. Consulting the map and looking up to find the shortcut between sections… not exactly wholly lacking in adventure. It was the weekend, and there quite a few families there.
Visit, the Second, was with a friend looking for curtains. And we got there by car, so, sorry to disappoint the hardcore public transporters among us. Anyway, I’ll tell you, although the froyo seems like a good idea, relatively speaking, I cannot recommend it.
On this visit I discovered the As-Is section. As always with these sorts of things, it is important to have a grasp on what constitutes a bargain. I was not expecting to buy anything, but found a pretty cool rolling fabric shelf thing, (and the price was right), that I can put clothes on and keep in my closet. Guys, my closet is the most organized part of my room. Too bad I can’t entertain people in there. Anyway, what a deal!

*The internet, I suspect. Yes. Have a go.
