Swedish Meatballs

Cue "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Richard Strauss.  Picture an African savannah.  A group of primates (homo habilis) wakes up to the sunrise.  Suddenly, they notice before them, standing tall and silent... the monolith.  They are fascinated by the monolith.  Around this time Homo habilis began to use the first stone tools.  They were our ancestors.

Step forward 2 million years to a grassy plain on a windswept Atlantic Archipelago, (ok, it's just Finglas, stick with me.)  Tool-using man has evolved from whapping each other with bones to constructing flat-pack furniture with a hex key.  Today my other half and I visited the giant blue monolith that is Ikea.

Touch the monolith

oh look, they have a Rocky Horror department!

we love these color-changing night lights.  Spooka!

OMG we shouldn't have ordered the large.  There were a lot of Swedish Meatballs.

Dragon.  It's what's for dinner.

This was pretty trippy...

This was too.  Whoa... far out man!

Behold, aisle five in all its glory
