i'm not insane!

<<reverse < index > forward>>

So I was walking through the IKEA today, and Five for Fighting's "100 Years" was playing, which, for no particular reason, really, put me in an extraordinarily contemplative mood, and I began thinking about my five years out in the Midwest.

There is only one IKEA in the Chicagoland area, and it is perhaps the only IKEA in a 100 mile radius. Me and my roommate at the time used to make many futile forays there to hunt for furniture that we could afford. Which is stupid, if you stop to think about it. (Some of our best furniture ended up coming from the Salvation Army and from the dumpster outside our apartment.)

And so I had this weird thought (alluding to my diatribe about cookie-cutter chain stores) that, what if these stores were like portals to various location around the United States (and, I suppose, the entire world, even)? Like, let's say I enter the IKEA in Mission Valley (in San Diego) and go out an alternate exit. Given the nearly identical nature of many IKEAs throughout the nation, couldn't I end up somewhere else? Like Chicago (or more accurately, Schaumburg.)

Now before you say anything, look at the title of this entry.

Comment/Excerpt: I don't drop many comments, but after<a href="http://ktamqvy.com"> lonoikg</a> at through a few of the remarks here Marketing For Construction Professionals | Build Talk. I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like some of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead visitors? And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?|I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a article on a website or if I have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it's caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at. And after this post . I was moved enough to drop a leave a responsea response I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it just me or do a few of these responses come across like they are left by brain dead visitors?

But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome post title? I ain't saying your information is not good., but suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean Marketing For Construction Professionals | Build Talk is a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they write article titles to get people to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you've written. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

Comment/Excerpt: was actually very lgaciol. However, think about this, what if you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn't solid., however what if you added something that grabbed a person's attention? I mean Marketing For Construction Professionals | Build Talk is a little vanilla. You might look at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting. http://ajlybfdh.com [url=http://anyakie.com]anyakie[/url] [link=http://qemczju.com]qemczju[/link]

Comment/Excerpt: Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
