Why I love Facebook

November 11th, 2010

Because of things like this:

And because when I posted this:

IKEA! I’m going to a store called IKEA! And suddenly I’ve found, how beautiful a sound can be! IKEA! Say it loud and there’s music playing; say it soft and it’s almost like praying … I’ll never stop saying IKEA!

One of my friends responded with:

Shall I compare thee to IKEA?
Thou art closer than the nearest IKEA (Stoughton?) and yet,
IKEA is chock-full of compelling bargains with funny names.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
Apples to oranges will this comparison be.

    I take it you haven’t heard the song by Jonathan Coulton?

    Long ago in days of yore
    It all began with a god named Thor
    There were Vikings and boats
    And some plans for a furniture store…

    I’m still working on “Winterize” (to the tune of “Lobachevsky”), but although Winterize rhymes nicely with “evade your eyes” I can’t get it to make sense.
