Well, I took advantage of our car situation by making a long-procrastinated trip to IKEA in Brooklyn. I've been wanting to find a cheap sofa table to use as a replacement keyboard cabinet for the one that my Dad lost while he was storing it for me in college. He claims he never had it, which is a convenient story for him and inconvenient for me, since it means I was on my own as far as replacing it. You see, this is similar to how my keyboard is supposed to look:
Only, because the replacement stand is $250, ever since we moved into the city it's been sitting on our livingroom floor getting dusty, which doesn't exactly make for a conducive environment for practicing or playing along while I sing.
So we headed out to IKEA and found the perfect sofa table for $89, the Markor sofa table, threw some green boxes for storage and flair on the bottom and voila:
A pretty good substitute, no? Please excuse the crappy iPhone picture.
I could end this post on that note and sound all "responsible and well-adjusted newlywed" and such, but that isn't really the reason I set out to write this post. In fact, the real reason is that I wanted to share this chuckle-inducing display from the kids' section at IKEA:
Some guy had apparently spent some time collecting half a dozen stuffed animals in order of size and putting them into this rather uncouth position. I'm not gonna lie, though, I laughed. And that, my friends, is why I am not your typical "responsible and well-adjusted newlywed." Oh well. At least I'm not boring.
