After yesterday's 'isn't life in Moscow wonderful' experience, today brought me down to earth with a bump. And as so often is the case, Ikea is indirectly to blame, but the disconnect between men and women is the real culprit.

A man, that's who.

And if you're at all interested in 'Frasier', Anthony Head, and Lempsip I recommend you check out this post where she convinces me, for one, that the only way to deal with a heavy cold is to retreat to the sofa...
