*sigh* There's something very annoying about the fact that every time I go into an Ikea, I end up wanting to buy all sorts of things which are very cool but which I really don't need. This is particularly true of all organization-related items, most of the kitchenware, and random house-decorating stuff.

I know exactly why it is-- it's part of the whole fantasy of Better Living Through Stuff. Like if I just get the _right_ stuff, all of the clutter in my vicinity will just vanish, and be replaced by perfect organization (and sparkles and rainbows). The recycling will dispose of itself; the paper will stop multiplying exponentially every time I turn around; the living room will stop being the place where clutter goes to die....

It's the concept of having a completely clean slate-- like moving into a new apartment/house and having to go and buy everything. Or at least mostly everything; clothes and books would be there, but everything else would be finding new stuff rather than having bits and pieces of old stuff uneasily coralled in cupboards, etc. I think this happens to practically everybody, really.

Of course, my brain wants to turn it into a story.* But that's just me.

*It keeps trying to generate first lines.

It's ok; didn't need those braincells anyway...

Looking for help tracking down that time you spent on brain-sucking internet sites? Clearly you need somebody who fights crime!!

Also, if you are looking for yet another fabulous way to spend several hours possibly days some time, check out these sites:
