IKEA food plus Bourne Ultimatum

I don't know why I always think this is a good idea, but everytime I go to IKEA, I end up in their cafeteria/restaurant coveting their delicious array of Swedish and American food. They have such amazing offerings like shrimp salad for $3.99 and Veggie Lasagne with side for $3.99. And then there are the side offerings of delicious heart attacks such as curly fries, mac n' cheese, and grilled cheese. Well needless to say, after ordering curly fries on my last visit, and being allowed to sample the mac n' cheese, I have been eagerly awaiting my next trip to Sweden in America hit that cheesiness up! And yesterday I did! World, I will conquer you afterall!

Ok, so I order this mac n' cheese, and being in a hurry, I ask for it to go so I may walk around IKEA eating their food. And instead of walking and 'taking care of business' in the store like I planned, I instead, end up munching a couple bites of food in three separate living rooms, actually enjoying their display livingrooms as if they were my own, feet up, food out, and leaning back like a cholo. Sure my elbows weren't up, but they were moving from side to side.

Now IKEA food is pretty all right for being in a furniture store and costing pennies on the dollar (do they import the food from child laborers in China?), but man, eating that much mac n' cheese with nothing else almost killed me. And that, my friends, was how I spent my Thursday afternoon.

Now to the evening portion of the program, cause you know that's when I let loose and get crazy! That's right! Movie time! I saw the Bourne Ultimatum and was honestly soooo impressed! It was really loud in the theater, to fully submerse you into the chase scenes - and there were aplenty! This is the third in the spy trilogy which began with Bourne Identity and continued with Bourne Supremacy. And may I just say, the Bourne Ultimatum totally doesn't disappoint when it comes to action and excitement! This movie was pretty hot. From chase scenes on foot to car, the action was non-stop and really fun. When previously Jason Bourne was asking, 'Who am I', and the second one 'Who killed my girlfriend and who wants to kill me', the third is more revealing. Jason Bourne comes home to discover who he is, and how he got to be the way he is now. The story delivers, but the action is totally where it is at for this movie goer. The film had fun plot twists, amazing superhuman action, and awesome stunts. This one is totally worth the $15 at the movie theater.
