Comedian is living in an Ikea store

I love IKEA so this article on CNN Caught my eye. I guess this is actually true. I've often thought it would be cool to live in one of those "furnished" bedroom setIt also reminds me of one of my favorite books, The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler in which two kids camp out in the Museum of Natural History.

PARAMUS, New Jersey (AP) -- When Mark Malkoff thought about where he could stay while his New York City apartment was being fumigated for cockroaches, he quickly ruled out friends' places (too small) and hotels (too expensive).

Instead, the comedian and filmmaker decided to move into an Ikea store in suburban New Jersey, where on Monday he unloaded two suitcases into a spacious bedroom at the store.

At night when the store is closed, he says he'll play laser tag with security guards and even plans to host a housewarming party.

"The fact that Ikea is letting me do this is mind-boggling," said Malkoff, lounging on a bed in his new room. "There's no way I'm going back. I love this way too much."
