CUTE PLASTIC CRAP

There is just over a year until our IKEA opens in Denver. I know this because there’s a new blog devoted to its creation. Daddy needs a new sofa, so scurry.


In just over 70 weeks I will no longer have to plan my vacations to only cities that have IKEA. I’ll be free to walk over during lunch to be a bear in the big blue box. Cute plastic crap? Why, yes. Thank you, very much.

Speaking of far off lands, I have a work trip to beautiful downtown Norfolk, Virginia for the remainder of the week. It’s one of those travel and eat with all of your bosses type of trip that makes you be on your best behavior, wear dress shirts, and not cruise the sailors in the airport. However, the first thing I did when the travel department sent my flight Itinerary was to change my seat assignment. Four hours in a middle seat? No thank you. While I’m in luxurious Navy town of Portsmouth, I will try to snap pictures of any hot seamen I see.

The one in Minneapolis opened a few years ago. I try to avoid going there because I suddenly need everything once I step inside.

The devil comes to Denver!

Melbourne's IKEA is a dangerous place. I can get lost in there for days, checking out storage systems, lounges, kitchen solutions, and then the majority of my time playing with all the crap aimed at kids.

Enjoy your remaining 70 weeks of freedom. Once IKEA opens your sould will simply evaporate.

I'm going to miss you when that happens.
