Planning a room with Ikea site?
I do not know if there is, please reader, more than a Stiod, this will be a request!
You know the most famous Swedish girl, Ikea, has so cool solutions for a relatively low cost when it has to do with furnishing.
The company has, by the way quite helpful softwares to planning, but it does not always help! At least not to me, who has not the sharpest mind in the world. What if, this Ikea girls furnishing had its own model pieces. I don’t know if it would need to be Ikea who sold it, though there is some potential there. But it could fit also other chains such as Mio or whoever sells furniture worldwide. One could have a standard scale, like the model railways things, but a little bigger.
I know architects use some things, but to my knowing they use to make such things by themselves, or am I wrong? I heard of people who even uses Lego to do the work. Please, too much abstraction to me!
Imagine if you had it as ready to use models or even if you could build it home, with your children or your partner or … in a hobby-like afternoon? A-ma-zing!
So, if you know about something like this, please, comment, or if you don’t let’s hope some “mind behind the things” reads this post and hear our voices>
Stiod has been in Lund, Sweden, and now want to share a presentation that do has to do with our site.
It is about making the world better – by doing what Stiod does – share ideas, be they stupid or brilliant.

I woke up just some minutes ago and “ideed” (I fouled an idea). Have spent the last six months redecorating a newly bought flat. All the wall papers are bought, but I realized our built-in wardrobes lost any appeal they might have had.
With some decoupage techniques I’ve got, I want to glue newspapers on the doors and get them a bit lively. Googling around I found that there are some ready newspapers-patterned wall papers, they are quite mechanic with a little news repeating on an on.
My idea was thus, to start gathering in some way newspapers from all over the world, with local news from different countries, in different languages, and with advertisements in.
I want this news corner to be unique and meaningful. That would make my bedroom news collection/collage to have a personality, and some news that were selected and had some meaning to those who sent me them.
How to do that?
How to get those newspapers?
Social media, dear reader. That is how it has to be done. So, if you read this post so far, and are willing to send me a sheet of newspaper from your city-tow, I would be really thankful. I intend also to refund you with costs for sending it by snail-mail.
Please, e-mail me if you are willing to be part of my collection.

Lagerlöf, 1909 (credit: Wikipedia)
After four years I love the one who loves me, I don’t care about church boundaries and after one month without blogging, I feel like that:
“O God, when honor is dumb, and misjudgment speaks, give me back misjudgment! When happiness is dumb, but sorrow speaks, give me back sorrow!” (Selma Lagerlöf, *The fallen king*)
That means: a great suffer, who wants to hide their own sorrow is a better poet than those who have perfec welbeing, are happy with their status and so on. Am I so? I ask myself this very moment. Am I happy? Are all my desires fulfilled?
Come on, reader… Not at all! I do have tons of ideas and things to write about. I just did not want to be nagging (spell?) or whatever else. But Lagerlöf’s short story, and mostly its last paragraphf, makes believe that suffering is great. So, today’s stiod is a suffering faker. The week you do not know what to write about, cheer for the team which is next last in the (you favorite sport here) liga. Whish to have someone who won’t love you (it does not work with me, as I wish to have sex with Madonna or Hugh Grant, but I’m sure they would if they knew me).
To be a great writer, you have to be a faker. Do you remember my post about liars? This one is the opposite of its. You would create a liars routine (WordPress’ associate Plinky is an alternative, why to tell always the truth?). This will sure give you outstanding writing ideas.
Forget it that the best writers are the ones who dominate the litterature and language fields. No! Some writer said they are just as chamberlains: they know what to do, but will never be able to!.

Now, the authorities are going to force those who have been enemployed for the third time to study.
That is pretty intersting not for the teaching — I doubt
Ulack of knowlegde is the biggest problem in this spefific case. Many have already complained of the project defending it is punishment.
Supposing it is, I wonder when we will see a “punishment” school to be built for corrupt politians and many other shameless groups who won’t need the social insurance money…..

Definitely I won’t say how it can be done since I am not that creative etc etc. My last toilet book was “Publicidade para o público” (Publicity for the public). There a guy is teaching publicity techniques etc. But I am ok in knowing only the basics and that such things exist (I am good in many things, so, I’ll skip this extra skill ::laugh::)
The stiod, though can come to existence with the limitation of a sketch as many others I publish, by the way.
While I am enjoying the morning laziness and deciding if I will vacuum clean or read e-mails, I decided watching Sponge Bob for the time being. These commercial TV channels have a lot of commercials (I guess there comes the name of its). The commercial Ads I saw are much of chewing gums, chips, candies – and clothes, games and toys. I guess that is why I am not willing to eat an apple but would gladly take a glass of strawberry quick as soon as I get up the couch.
Long time I am not a kid – perhaps sadly, though I am ok on my thirties – and I was strongly suggested by the eating of some sugary cereal or Toddy.
But one thing you can observe there is no advertisement for fruits: Fruits and vegetables have brands as well, just as milk etc. And the brand makes the difference in quality, besides, there might have different benefits and appeals.
Why don’t these brands just make some (quick) ad and dispute or get over the market:
Apples “Small Jungle” – the most juicy you can find.
Ananas (usch) “Tupi Açu” – easy to sculpt your favorite shapes (and happy kids with plastic knives making sweet & acid figures while showing a strong attitude).
Travel through world eating “Interfruits” from far away lands to your fruit basket
I don’t mind you laughing of my lack creativity – but I’ve seen worst (check this). Thing is we complain of world problems, kids who don’t eat, but where are our farms, veggies importers? Why don’t they announce their products?
Ops, I guess I am going to look for some greenery for lunch.
Some years ago I would thank the gods if some place here in São Paulo had wireless connection so I would be able to type everywhere. That is not a big problem nowadays since I can have mobile internet almost where ever I go. This makes my text working rather flexible and I can write at any bar, cafe or bookstore. But not always do I remember charging completely the notebook or the mobile and there I go. Sometimes the battery just empties in a sudden. Out of batteries all the time I planned to surf out of home is gone.
That are many places that even offer wireless and that is really good and sometimes those networks are faster than my network provider. But that are places that won’t allow me using any electrical outlets that I find free on their walls. There was this mall with nice decoration etc. and I sat near the wall for a while. Mobile battery just abandoned me and I found this outlet smiling at me. I just plug it and this security guard comes censoring me: “Lady, you cannot use our contact!”
After a while feeling a robber and coming silently home (no battery, no music on the phone, no typing notes… no-thing!). In my quite way I went thinking of this post: Produce tables with inbuilt electrical outlets for clients charging their devices in restaurants, shopping malls etc.
I think that more than allowing us to charge our devices, the tables in this “public” places should offer on their tops some contacts so we can charge our devices while we are consuming, just as an extra service. I would prioritize more a place with this feature than a cheaper one. And that would make it much more convenient than paying a guard to stop me “stealing” their electrical stream.
