can you tell how ecstatic i was to be moving out of my old apartment and into a new place? i mean, when emily and i went to ikea to furnish my room (the same emily of Krapfen fame), i was giddily skipping through the store. i think we spent a total of 3 hours there. for a person who has never been to ikea in the states (oklahoma really needs to get on that), this place is like paradise to me.
equally paradise-ical? the ikea food section. ikea has a food section AND a restaurant. we spent a significant amount of time in both. and then discovered a self-serve milkshake dispenser. or perhaps i should say a self-serve ''milkshake'' dispenser (i've still yet to try a milkshake in europe that does in fact taste like a true, american milkshake...did you know milkshakes originated in chicago? just another reason for me to go there one day). sadly, we threw these so-called shakes away after a few drinks... which is shocking in itself because i never throw food away.
oh, and the thing i'm throwing up in the air is a mattress. a rolled-up, super light, wrapped in plastic, throw-able mattress. what will they think of next!?
