Fun Times @ EEEKea

Ikea, that is.*

Is the cafeteria that good? I’m used to waiting in Soviet breadlines for most things around here, but should it really extend to the g-damn mediocre Ikea cafeteria? Observe:


Even the guys in the poster on the wall seem to be impatiently waiting to get some hummus flavored Jello. Jeez.

One good thing I gotta mention about Ikea in Israel tho:


At least I can get drunk and furnish my apartment for what should be cheaper furniture as I remember it being in N. America but is just expensive cheap crap.

*Language police disclaimer: yes I know that it’s probably pronounced EEkea in Sweden and in Israel it’s pronounced more correct than in America blah blah blah. It’s just funny to hear it called EEkea, okay?

    The reason for branding it here as EEkea is the same reason for which the Kia car is pronounced Kaya – because the way they’re meant to be pronounced – Keeya – is Vomit. Good luck selling that to a nation of cynics.

    Actually, it’s pronounced ee-KAY-ah in Sweden. It’s Ingmar Kamprad (owner/founder) Elmtaryd Agunnaryd (two villages in Småland, Sweden, where it all started).

    Heh. Couldn’t resist. I enjoy your website though, I’m Dutch and came to live in Israel by way of six years in Sweden, so I can identify with many things you’re writing.

    Difference between you and me being that I haven’t learnt a damn word of Hebrew yet. I guess I’m more of an expat here. Which is a shame, because it only took me 3 months to learn Swedish.
