Javlar!

You know, before I lived in this stinking hole of a city, one of the mandatory destinations was IKEA. Even with full knowledge that the products are pretty yet cheap, I would wander the labyrinthine showroom and dream of all the items I will one day purchase [the latest is a wall-mounted Bertby glass door cabinet. You know, for mini-figures].

When you have to return to IKEA three times in a week because you've been screwed on the wrong size or wrong colour item, that thrill quickly fades. It is a hurt not even 50-cent hot dogs can soothe. Couple that with spending an hour trying to matte and frame some artwork tonight, only to discover cat hair had embedded itself inside the glass and there can be no doubt: The Swedes are trying to kill me.

What's shaking out there?

If you haven't been reading the talented Mr. Schnurr, [and really, why haven't you?], he doesn't disappoint again tonight, with some sobering analysis of the costs the east-end arena project is racking up.
