Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Hello, I'm Ingvar
It's a running gag at the Lilli family. Some months ago we read some feature about the IKEA founder, Ingvar Whatwashisname, who sometimes likes to show up at some IKEA market, noone realizes it's the big Boss and he introduces himself with "Hello, I'm Ingvar" (in whatever language he speaks).
Imagine the shock and horror of the poor IKEA employee, who just had a bad night, is lovesick and the hair is just plain ugly today? Well, according to media coverage, Ingvar has beaten Bill Gates in being rich.
I don't mind, Ingvar has become a bit richer this week by our money, too, since we're IKEA addicts and since we're moving right now and we needed a new kitchen, there was no other possibility to get it than IKEA, of course.
And by that - if you have the choice between IKEA Godorf (near Cologne) and IKEA Duesseldorf, just make the good choice and go to Duesseldorf. It's bigger, nicer and more friendly. Even when it's in the "forbidden city", it's worth a trip.
