I think this task should get more points, as they might not say much with just a dinner, they get on your ass quick when they notice a camera.

I wonder about that too. There are no IKEA's in Alaska, may I do it at a similar place?

I'm thinking that no other store is exactly like IKEA, but that a completion of this task at any type of store would be pretty worthy. So you should just go for it.

For your listening pleasure ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thrilling. We hit two different stores to make up for the fact that neither of them were real IKEA. We don't have any of those in Alaska. So, we substituted for other IKEAs.
