Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Back to School Shopping
Note to self:

Self: Don't ever just "run out to IKEA", the weekend before every major college and university on the East Coast is gearing up for fall semester.


They had a special 'display room' totally outfitted to accommodate 2 people in less than 600 square feet of space. No room for clothes, studying, or storage, but the bathroom was nice.

In addition to every family with hormonal teens looking for a bargain and trying to outfit 600 square feet of living space, there were a trio of frat boys in the sofa area. Now, these guys had already had a few, and the 'lead guy' (AKA most drunk), kept bouncing on the display sofas and reminding his compadre's that their goal was "durability and stain resistance". Oh - Ick.

I rounded out the day with the less than 30 day old BMW getting a starburst crack in the windscreen from an errant pebble.

    Dudette! I totally know what you're saying -- I ran out to IKEA Wednesday for a new TV stand and it took FOREVER. I was like, "C'mon, why the eff are so many people here at noon on a weekday?"

    PS - sorry about your windshield. I recommend installing a machine gun "anti pebble" tracking & engagement system.

    600 square feet?! Jesus, dorms have gotten huge. you could cram 5 students in that much space.

    eebmore: The 562 square foot demo was an apartment - not a dorm room. Kitchen, bath, living, bedroom. "Cozy".

    My house probably has 600 square feet excluding the basement and I have plenty of room, 2 prisoners in a cell live in 40 square feet. No wonder colleg costs $30K/year.
