And I was all 'Oh poor Ikea president', who sounds like a principled if stubborn man. Except, except. I need a new Ikea knife. My old one fell into a black hole shortly after slitting open the bk1 package with the Ima Ichiko illo'd weird tales. Ikea has them on their website. **Ikea will not sell them from the website.** No no no madame you must come to our inconveniently located stores and with luck buy a whole bunch of other stuff. I understand the logic of this, but it makes no sense to *me* to pay $6 on the TTC to buy a $9 knife. Go the Russians, say I.
Now I'm wondering if I could indeed bike past Royal York Rd to the Etobicoke store, and back. Would have thought nothing of it a dozen years ago, so maybe.
