Two 24 oz. cans of Mountain Dew. Gotta have that sugar high.
Diet Dr. Pepper, some candy that I shouldn't have.
And got a belated birthday gift---the new Mumford & Sons album. Happy dance!!
Inception on Blu-ray.
A case of diet coke and lemon seltzer water, peanut butter chocolate bar, three hardcover Marvel graphic novels, and a DVD.
Some buffet lunch a little earlier this afternoon.
New Star Trek novel day! I bought ST: Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship
Season pass for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Season 14 (iTunes Store)
Went to Ikea today, I seriously needed some light in my flat!
Got two sets of these Dioder and one set of these (but after having put them up I now know that I'll need one more of those as well)
And while there I picked up a few other odds and ends...
Some groceries for the coming weekend along with a few collectibles.
That's so easy to do in Ikea!
Says the woman who is sitting in an Ikea chair, at her Ikea computer table, next to her Ikea printer table, surrounded by Ikea Billy bookcases. The only thing not Ikea in my study is my antique desk. Well, the only furniture.
Thank you for reminding me that I bought a floor lamp there a while ago, and it's still sitting in its box...
^ Did you assemble all that Ikea stuff yourself? You really are a genius.
^Ah but, assembling the stuff yourself is the fun part! -it's usually just like Lego for adults
My desk (that doubles as a dining table), chair and desk lamp, two cupboards and two sets of lamps -just in this room- are also from that shop
But the odds and ends of today are: a cheese-grater ("Strålande"), a stainless steel travel-mug, a stainless steel 'basket' (I'm gong to hang on the wall so my hand-soap doesn't need to stand on a surface) and a stainless steel dish-rack.
Oh, and a set of bed-linen.
If we'd gone in a bigger car* I would've picked up lots more (big flower pots at off-season prices ), a small table/cupboard/shelves-combo for my very cramped 'hall', some colourful bed-side rugs...
* Today I noticed (for the first time) that you can borrow bikes with trailers! -what a perfect way to bring home the loot!
I did, indeed. Assembling it is what makes it fun. And, more importantly, affordable.
Rental bikes with trailers? That is so coo!. I can't imagine them trying that in the US.
Yeah well, I live about 5 Km away so for me (and most people in town) it is cool
Assuming one can speak Swede-glish...
^I would imagine that Swede-glish is much more common in your part of the country than mine.
Actually, we tend more towards German-glish...but my own experience can best be described thus: "Lady, I only speak two languages, English and bad English!" - Bruce Willis in The Fifth Element
Me, I am very bad at following assembly directions. If I am given the manual to build, say, an Ikea desk, I'd probably end up with a bird house...
