Fifteen minutes of fame

March 14, 2008

Journal, Lauren

Woo-hoo!!! I’m on ikeahacker! I found their site while searching for other people who liked to mess around with stuff, and submitted my little tiny sugar shaker. Now, after months of hoping – I’m on it! I couldn’t be happier!!

Such clever people

Now, to all you people who live near an IKEA, it is vital that you mail me stuff from IKEA so I can try for a second moment of fame. Better yet, send an airline ticket so I can go directly to the source, ok?

UPDATE: For Deborah and all the other doubters (I love you all):

It would be awkward to tip the whole fridge

    I’m still not exactly sure how your sugar shaker works. How do you get the sugar out?


  2. Curt Said on:

    Yes!!! I am the first to post!! Ah crap…I can’t think of anything else to write.


  3. Brad Said on:

    I’ll send you a self-addressed, stamped box. You can come via UPS. I certainly won’t use the USPS. They have it out for me.

    Between you & Lloyd your fame knows no bounds!

    When you two are strolling down the red carpet, I’ll be able to say, “Hey, I knew them when …”


  5. Lauren's dad Said on:

    A warning label to be sure the hole is at the top should be attached, to keep you from being sued by people whose sugar runs out on the floor and attacts ants. Right?


  6. Mark Said on:

    Could you do a search for a little rubber plug that would fit in the hole? That way you woudn’t necessarily have to worry about spilling the contents.


  7. Deborah Said on:

    I never doubted you, Lauren. Just had to see it in action. Thank you.


    • Lauren Said on:

      I know, Deborah, I know. Can you also tell them that I never spill my sugar? Never! (Well, except for that one horrible, horrible time. *Shudder*)

    Do I spy guitar/ukulele chords on your mug?!

    Minor, sharp… ha!
