Mrs. Gekko and I made a pilgrimage to the yuppie Mecca today, IKEA.
IKEA is every liberal's dream consumption, buy lots of cheap crap made in China, India, Turkey, Vietnam without any of the guilt.
Of course, just like a liberal, the store is full of signs telling you how to shop, were to go, why you need to throw out your crap at the cafeteria, how to flush the toilet (Seriously. if you do a number one pull the handle up; number two, down).
But Gordon, it's the perfect place to purchase materials for a minimalist existence.
Is that right? Well, if you really want a minimalist existence, you'd by all of your house wares at the local Goodwill or thrift store. Nothing says minimal like recycling.
I'm still trying to figure out how it is that if you buy cheap crap at Walmart you are the anti Christ, but if you buy the same cheap crap from IKEA, you're a "minimalist".
