    We made our first pilgrimage to IKEA today. Egad! The cars! The crowds! The lines! We wandered the massive complex for almost three hours, browsing all the home furnishings including the hoopty showrooms. For a mere fifty-one dollars we got a new bathmat, 2 potholders, a 10 pack of AA batteries, a 5'x6' fleece throw, 2 table lamps, a natural wood picture frame, a 4 pack of 100 watt light bulbs, a 2 pack of cutting boards, a shower caddy, a dish drying rack, and a wastebasket.

    Clearly a random assortment of odds 'n ends. We wanted to buy a couple living room end tables, but they were out. Luckily, we got a pair just as nice at the Christmas Tree Shop. So our living room, with its new little tables and lamps, functions more as a lounge than a place to curse the Red Sox.
