Realized the other day I somehow missed the ferry (get it??) on soundtracking my Ikea adventures with the appropriate Pavement song.

Lesson here: Always assume there is a Pavement song to go with whatever you are writing. This is good, seeing as my upcoming topics of concern include AT&T and the unseen power of the picket fence.

Ikea is practically its own sovereign Swedish colony on the banks of the Gowanus Bay. So it only makes sense that the store has its own intricate system of transit involving everything save for aircraft (so far, at least). But which mode of transport is the best for you? And by that, of course, we mean: which one is the cheapest? Herein then we lay out the specific costs of all the different ways to transport your Ektorp or Aspelund back to your apartment so you can choose smartly, and not fall into the fjord of poor decisions.
READ THE REST. It smells like Lingonberry pancakes.
