A man is living in the Paramus, NJ, Ikea store for a week while his apartment is being fumigated. "Ikea managers agreed to shelter and feed him for a week - and let him film his daily escapades. He'll have breakfast in one of the store's two cafeterias in his white bathrobe every morning, he says, and pad around the store in the fuzzy slippers he got for Christmas until he gets dressed for the day."
