today i wrestled free from my laptop and paintbrushes to indulge in a half-day excursion to our local shepherd o swedish' style .
sorry, gwen but i' couldn't keep it from you any longer. i had no choice. it was on my way home from a craigslist coup and my steering wheel twisted and turned its way to their front door no matter the ferocity of my fight.
why, on each visit, am i startled at the price of their high-style, minimalist products? do they have a hidden magnet at the entrance that zaps my memory of prices previously seen at earlier visits?
$29.99. really? R E A L L Y?
$89.99 for the pendant designed by the hot guy. c'mon. do we really believe that marcus arvonen looks like THAT? whatever. it's only $89.99...i'm not gonna sweat it. just give me the light.
no, i want two if you're gonna keep me from spilling the arvonen beans. yes, bulbs, too.
$1.50 paid in change from the car console.
my ikea afternoon: priceless.
