i was in college before anyone non-parental or non-teacheriffical qualified as a role model.

i wrote up a description of the guy three times before i finally decided there was no way to do it in any kind of short quip kind of way appropriate for this thread.

so. yeah. some guy i knew when i was in college.

My cousin Nat. He's a junior in college, and some of my best memories are of exploring my grandparents' attic with him and finding old WWII helmets, a flashbulb camera, and a box full of love letters from two unknown relatives.

He's without a doubt one of the most intelligent and funny people I know, and has never had anything but the best advice.

That explains so much.

I never liked any-one enough to want to role model from them.

question of wednesday 19 december:

what's the last thing you bought at IKEA?

Stephi_B 12-19-2007 10:04 AM

Bedclothes - somewhen in the long ago, don't buy much at IKEA.

T.I.P. 12-19-2007 10:29 AM

drapes - to block out the vis--vis from my neighbors' apartment

trisherina 12-19-2007 10:42 AM

knight and dragon printed storage boxes and a bed tent for my son's room

Frieda 12-19-2007 12:19 PM

2 ornaments for my christmas tree (glass white birds with red printed pattern), 2 rolls of gift wrap and a box of gift labels shaped as a gnome

Neither do I -- and for, I think, the same reason: we know that 90% of the universe is made up of dark matter, and almost all of it is kept in warehouses at Ikea!

Frieda 12-19-2007 12:42 PM

i like to think of it as parallel universes-- every IKEA warehouse in the world has the same 50 rooms set up. i mean, what would happen if i sit down on an EKTORP in amsterdam and you do the exact same at the exact same time--it might open a wormhole or something :eek:

madasacutsnake 12-19-2007 05:15 PM

I don't do Ikea. No way.

lukkucairi 12-19-2007 05:41 PM

$144 worth of battery powered LED xmas light strings that were selling at $1.60 ea.

That's 85 sets :)

auntie aubrey 12-19-2007 10:15 PM

ikea is still a novelty to me so i shop there as often as i can stomach the idea of grappling with the crowds. it's such a bizarro shopping experience that i can't get enough of.

last weekend we bought a down pillow and a roll of gift wrap for this enormous present we bought for a 4 year old that demanded its own roll of wrap just to cover the damn thing.
