That's right, Brad and I (let's be honest-- it's all me) are planning an Ikea pilgrimage next week.  I'd like to say he's as excited as me, but shopping doesn't really get Brad fired up.  He's going based on the promise that we'll stop and pick up a couple cases of Yuengling, which unfortunately, isn't sold in the Indianapolis area.  Yes, I bribe … [Read more...]
