ikea i love you.
and hate you.
i love you for everything you have.
i hate you for not being close to me. not even a little bit.
so, i wanted to order this chair off of ikea. the chair was $240.
do you know how much they wanted to charge me for shipping!
$260 freaking dollars. $260!!!!! um, that's more than the stupid chair.
unfortunately, if i'm going to pay $500 for a chair than i want a $500 chair. and for $500 i shouldn't have to assemble anything myself.
speaking of assembly, how much do ikea's stupid assembly directions suck? ever heard of words!!! nooooo .... they're all, "who needs words? these are international directions, for children who haven't started reading yet". i have yet to put together something from ikea without going through several drinks at the same time.
when charlie and i first moved in together, we bought these end tables (which i painted blue a year later and no i wasn't drunk when i picked the color). well we decided to have a "race" to see who could put the end table together first. while we were drinking beer. and we both ended putting the little doors on the end table backwards. maybe it's a good think i painted them ... there were nail holes around the edges.
i want this bedroom.
