Yesterday Deanna and I trucked out to Coquitlame to visit the wonderful world of Ikea. I feel so dirty! I already had some Ikea furniture but they were all Stewie’s hand-me-downs. Until about a month ago I had never been to an Ikea since I was a child. When Kolja and I drove down to Seattle to pitch our comic to Wizards of the Coast, we had breakfast at the Ikea nearby. Yesterday we picked up a new bed for me and also wall-mounted shelves, which we spent last night putting together (partially, anyway). So now I can no longer say that I’ve never shopped at Ikea. I keep washing but the dirt doesn’t come off.
