I wish there was an IKEA near me. As it is, I'd have to buy two tanks of gas to get to one and back.

Is there something special going on at Ikea today? I have one near me, but haven't heard anything.

Maybe I will go since maybe it won't be so busy during the game.

Well DUH, R4

HaHa, OK R5. Since OP mentioned Ikea in the title, I thought there might be some extra promotions or something special going on over there, other than just that it might not be so busy.

He's as gay as IKEA on Superbowl Sunday.

by Anonymousreply 702/03/2013

If you're new here, R4, you might not have seen the popular saying "gayer than IKEA on Superbowl Sunday."

So, here we are, on Superbowl Sunday . . .

Oh my. (hides head) It's true, I hadn't heard that saying.

Avoiding facebook. I hate all the straight women posting about football. It's ridiculous and sad that they think they have to embrace such a boring sport just to spend some time with their lazy husbands.

by Anonymousreply 1002/03/2013

Ok, I can even go further than R4, doesn anyone know what time this thing starts PST? I actually live in SF, and I need to go to the supermarket, but I don't want to get caught in the beer and chips stampede down there.

I'm cooking a slow-roasted pork shoulder w/ my famous potato salad and greens. Good, comfort food dinner. I haven't a clue what is good to drink with it.

It officially starts at 3:30 p.m. Pacific, R11 with something called a "kickoff time".

The Superbowl is the only time we will use the DVR to fast forward TO the commercials.

Is Ikea really very gay on Superbowl Sunday? If it is I may just have to go!

Watching the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet!

by Anonymousreply 1702/03/2013

Well, I would go to Ikea, but the weather is crappy and I don't want to drive on snow-covered roads.

So, I'm enjoying some wine and will watch some DVDs.

I bought a floor lamp, but then a breaker blew in my house and of Course my electrician is all up and at 'em at the superbowl

You don't know how to reset the circuit on a circuit breaker, R19? You're a gay stereotype, aren't you?

If you go to the IKEA in LA, you'll just be tripping over clueless Asians and humungous Mexican families

by Anonymousreply 2102/03/2013

Not going to IKEA, that's for sure. Been there once. Once was enough.

Staying home and watching the game (SF native here) for the reality TV theater of it all and the commercials, and eating home-made quacamole with chips. Then later, for dinner, Shrimp Louis, made the old timey San Francisco way with iceburg lettuce, boiled eggs, a ton of shrimp, with Ken's Steakhouse 1,000 Island dressing (the best bottled 1,000 Island ever, and sourdough bread and butter).

Does anyone know where Ken's Steakhouse it? I think it may be on the East Coast.

It's in Framingham, MA

R21, that is so accurate.

Puppy bowl is very cute this year

Thank you R23. I shall make a pilgrimage some day.

Mommie Dearest is about to start on Sundance, and at 11:00 p.m. Eastern My Fair Lady is on TCM. Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide is about to start on History 2.

I went downtown to stroll and shop, and every restaurant and bar that was open on a sunday had the game blaring so loud you could hear it on the street. I was walking along the street, and keeping up on the game between stores.

by Anonymousreply 3002/03/2013

R12, please share your famous potato salad recipe? Pretty please?

by Anonymousreply 3102/03/2013

IKEA will be opening soon. I will be having some lingonberry jam on Skal and Skorpor Kardemumma at their cafeteria carefully positioning myself so as to be able to overlook Smaland to compare the relative merits of the playing children.

No you weren't. The game hasn't started yet.

Watch the Kitten Bowl!

I'm watching the Kitten Bowl. Fuck the Puppy Bowl.

by Anonymousreply 3502/02/2014

R10, sometimes it's the straight women who are more into football than their husbands. An example of that is my brother. He doesn't like sports and has never understood football, but his wife is throwing a party to celebrate their daughters' first Super Bowl (she is way too young to even understand) and have a reason for her frau friends to come over. She began posting about this many days ago.

She isn't even a fan of either team. Ugh.

While I get your point, there is actually no IKEA "in LA." There are four in the metro area, and one in San Diego, but none in LA itself.

Going to see the Oscar nominated Live Action Shorts at the local arthouse cinema.

Why is it that when my partner and I visit the IKEA in Portland, Oregon, we are often the only Caucasian, English-speaking people?

by Anonymousreply 3902/02/2014

Why does my television guide show three different episodes of the Puppy Bowl, each two hours long? They are named "First & Goal", "Going for 2" and "Third & Long". Are they really three different episodes?
