IKEA

On Wednesday there was a press conference to announce that IKEA is coming to Denver. I have not had an IKEA near me since I left Dallas. Just take a minute and try to imagine living in a city without an IKEA, it boggles the mind. About six months ago Fuzzy and I were looking for bedroom furniture. We hated everything we saw in showrooms here in Denver so we ended up ordering our new set from the IKEA store in Utah. At a pretty price to ship it here. The news that my IKEA is on its way means that this back water jerk town is growing up. Yippy!
They plan on breaking ground in a year’s time. Okay, so I still have a freaking long time to wait, but look out, I’ll be the first in line for some meatballs.

Oh no. I'm losing a lot of respect for you very quicly Stevie, first the iPhone nonsense and now ick-ea (do you like what I did there, clever, I know!). Surely Denver has at least one groovy furniture store, I mean it's a big city (I know it's not huge but I live in Australia, you have state with bigger poulations than our entire nation) or maybe it's not groovy you're after, maybe it's just cheap, infuriating to assemble rubbish from an obvious source that required much queing, elbowing and pram dodging to acquire in the first place. I get it now, ya freakin' sicko! (kisses) Ha ha ha.

Stevie, being a fellow Denverite, I concur with your Ikea worship. I too love the inexpensive, difficult to assemble furniture! True friends support you!!!

I get lost everytime I go to Ikea, both getting there, once I'm at the store, and on the way home! If only they weren't so cheap!!!!!! Oh yeah and it's the ONLY time I travel to the burbs on purpose!
