Other Ten Percent 9/3/12

Sep 03 2012

We went to Ikea today. We’re still missing several pieces of furniture we need. We had to return once to grab some extra chairs and it took 15 phone call attempts before we got a good enough signal to convey 8 words of information to each other. The line to get back to the freeway half a mile away took us almost 30 minutes. I’m exhausted from dealing with a bunch of bullshit screws in our new table and there’s a huge crack in my fingernail from where I somehow slammed my right index finger into the trunk of my parent’s car. All in all it was the single most successful trip to Ikea I think I’ve ever been on. Internet access is still wonky here till Wednesday so I’m composing this on a wi-fi hotspot. As a result I apologize if I’m just sort of vague about what some of these are in my descriptions. I don’t really have the bandwidth to load them back up and check.
