eh, park slope is okay, if you need to compromise. oh, and 8th street and 7th avenue in the slope is the only place my car has ever been broken into in my 12 years of parking all over the city.

Anyone else think that the living room in that photo is really not all that small?

I don't think I have room in my head for this AND Jersey Shore.

I got a flat rectangular, carpeted movers dolly and it has made craigslist so much easier.

One the one hand, I agree with hejira. This stinks. I have to pay market and I make less than half of what they make. On the other hand, there are much worse inequities all over this city and I'm not sure it's worth getting worked up over this.

The Ikea Jerker is more a knock-off of the Drafting Table designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller.

When I was apartment hunting I went to an open house that had thousands and thousands of vinyl toys EVERYWHERE. They were in the vanity, on the vanity, on the range hood, on the window sills, on the toilet bowl, everywhere. AND, when the broker opened the closets (and when I opened the kitchen cabinets), there were bins and bins filled with them.

Anyway, put them everywhere I guess is where I'm going with this.

Yeah, I'm with plain jane. We just elected some smug, subversive Middle Eastern who's plotting with a terrorist state university professor to roll back this hunter-gatherer free for all society we've all been prospering from. Before we know it, Obama is going to decide who hunts and who gathers, and then where to hunt and gather, and when.

Seriously?? You're ignorant. 56,416,755 Americans (that we know of) are ignorant.

The Room and Board Parsons Table is a good choice. Lots of size and top options and it's extremely sturdy with that steel frame. Wish I had the cash.

Ikea increased my quality of life immensely when I was in school and poor (not that I'm rolling in it now). If you ask me, Ikea is one of the best design companies out there because it makes good design available to the masses while being ecologically sensitive.

This doesn't have anything to do with your question, but I just found three chips on the edges of my marble table. I just had to tell someone.

I know it's probably just because I didn't have mine properly adjusted, but I went from an aluminum group management chair to an aeron and then back to the AG. It was okay but it was too big and heavy, and just didn't really fit (I had the B, and I'm a B sized person).

When she went to Chicago, she went to Pizzaria Uno. When she went to London, she went to Gordon Ramsay's restaurant for fish and chips. What? The cleavage makes up for it though, it's mesmerizing.
