So I drove up to IKEA today to get the desk I wanted that wasn’t available when I got the rest of my furniture a couple of weeks ago. First off, let me say you should never go to IKEA alone if you’re planning on buying anything. I had to get someone to watch my stuff twice while I backed my car up to the loading area. Anyway, I don’t know how I could ever live up there. For one, there’s just too many people. Secondly, the majority of them are really bad drivers. I had to go about 75 MPH consistently to keep up with the flow of traffic, and I was still practically getting run over by the cars behind me. Not a few, but literally the majority of the people on Interstate 95 were going at least 85 or 90 MPH. It was ridiculous. Got my stuff, though. The room’s almost complete. All I have left to do now is put up the wallpaper border I got and I’ll be finished! Pictures coming very, very soon.
Really liked this condensed, emoji-fied roundup of some of the most notable new laws going into effect today in the Commonwealth from @KarriPeifer and @nedoliver over at @axios #RVA.

So much truth it hurts. Not to mention it’s a rock in the rising stream that is inflation. Hell, even the Dollar Tree is $1.25 now. But the old standby Costco hot dog? Forever a buck fifty and I’m here for it.
While I realize this email was sent in error, it’s a fairly accurate look at the number of daily local stories that will be left if @LeeEntNews keeps laying off local journalists at the @RTDNEWS. It’s sad and pathetic.
