Clever marketing

I was shopping at Ikea and had an overwhelming desire to buy a little chest of drawers. So I did. Brandon's had seen better days and it seemed like a good time to replace it. When I got home, I wondered if subliminal messaging was involved in my decision. Check out the name:


What's next? A table called Jakob?
Hmmmm...all of sudden I feel like I need a new table.

If it is a Kullen, it will last forever!

does it shimmer in the sun? it is hard and (slightly) cold, right?

The Ikea names crack me up. I know they're Swedish and all, but some of them are just so funny. Flort...Ektorp...Sniglar...Kramfors. But with a name like Kullen it should be very durable AND good looking.

You are so funny Andrea, I never would have noticed that! I do LOVE Ikea...I just found out this summer that they have some very yummy cheap sweet rolls.

Toni and Shelley--I love you guys. You crack me up.

Grandpa--Please read the Twilight series and then re-read this post. :)

Are the drawers white, cold, and indestructible?

p.s. I know Andrew is done blogging, but he should do a New Moon review guest post on your blog if he's ever bored. (-:

Amy--When we were walking out of the theater, I asked in my nicest voice, "Will you write a personal New Moon blog post for me?"

His response: "I can't. I wasn't even taking notes!"

So I guess not. Bummer.
