Saturday, September 20

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal. He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind; he was willin' to make a deal.

We should have been going out tonight.
Seeing a movie and having something to eat was mentioned....
But no.
We've had the very lives sucked out of us, courtesy of a four hour visit to Ikea.
Four . Fucking . Hours .
If I were ever offered the choice of either facing Diablo Himself, or taking a trip to Ikea....I'd be willing to take my chances.

Thank fuck I've got something to smoke tonight.

umm, is four hours in IKEA a lot?

did you get to spend some time in the ball pit as well?

bedshaped said...

It is when you just go in to order a kitchen.
No ball pit unfortunately. I think we were ever so slightly over the 'you can play in here if you're smaller than this' line.

Beth said...

hmmm, the trouble with IKEA is there's no such thing as 'just'. We made it in & out in 'just' under an hour once though - that's our record!

I do believe that Ikea is some sort of dry run for Purgatory.

Never and again are the only words I have for such japes. If they won't deliver it, I won't buy it.

(This also has something to do with being brought up on a rock where the speed limit is 40mph. To visit the perilous, money-sapping Purgatory involves the added torture - for me and unwilling passengers - of a 2 hour motorway drive complete with more swearing than has ever heard before and sweaty hand-wringing before an evening crumpled and mumbling over a bottle of JD. Sounds as if you had an easy time of it?)

beth,
Under an hour, you say? Sounds like the gauntlet has been well and truly laid down.

spiralskies,
Add one fly on the wall documentary crew for your trips to Ikea and that's some seriously addictive viewing.

ikea can be magical... try shrooming next time

bedshaped said...

orangefrute88,
Are you suggesting a trip to Ikea under some kind of 'influence'?!?!
Ooh, nooooo. I don't think I could handle that!

Jaggy said...

Ikea is the lair of the devil himself. Do as I do. Never go. Ever.

bedshaped said...

jaggy,
I'd like to say that I was tricked into going, but in fairness, I wasn't. I'm my own worst enemy, sometimes.
Still....a lesson learned.

Apparently in some cultures a trip to Ikea is considered a treat! I myself was subjected to one such treat only the other week.

We barely made it back for last orders. I was not best pleased.

Although I did keep the spending down to a minimum, for which a bronze medal at the very least is in order I feel.

Duck said...

along with a few commas after reading back my last sentence.

bedshaped said...

duck,

Some cultures consider it a treat, huh? Oh well, each to their own, I guess.
While we were there, a guy came up to the service counter that we were sat at, asking for directions to get out of the place. His facial expression was that of pain, anguish and desperation!

Oh, and don't worry about being grammatically correct on here. I don't.
