    Is this blog sponsored by IKEA?

    Today's the day that the New Haven IKEA opens. You'd think with all the recent comments about IKEA here, they'd be paying me for the updates. As I type this they're handing out free Poang chairs to some lucky (crazy) folks that camped out overnight at the store's front doors.

    Yes, you read that correctly: They camped out overnight. Driving home from work yesterday around 5:30pm, the front sidewalk was littered with tents and sleeping bags. That must have been a fun night, what with the torrential downpours and all.

    This morning, when I drove by around 8:00am, the soggy tents were being packed up and TV news crews were preparing for the grand opening. All this, while others stayed at home catching some zzz's and avoiding the big rush.

    Mind if I make myself comfortable?
