Craig and his wonderful list

victrola recordThe good thing about Craigslist: it's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations. The bad thing about Craigslist: it's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations.

Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

Somewhat non-optimistic vegan who will never have a mohawk seeks other vegans to live with.

She says she's looking for her prince charming, but it sounds like "sugar daddy" might be a more accurate title.

This guy wants someone to kick him. He prefers if you can do it with some accuracy.

Do you have what it takes to be a "non-girlfriend?"

Is "you are so much cuter" than your dog what a woman wants to hear? Maybe it depends on the dog.

From the who-knew-that-was-hot file: clavicle piercings.

This listing sounds a little bit like a Jennifer Lopez movie.

For sale: CliftonPerk.com.

These are some seriously vintage vinyl records.

And you could make your block a little like NYC with this hotdog cart.

I like the way he tries to rationalize a pretty "common" kink. Body hardening. Good one.

"I am not a hippie vegan type of person, as I am drug free (straight edge, even), and could never stomach the kind of optimism it would take to be labeled "hippie." "

Great way to sell yourself as a potential roommate: let people know right off the bat that you're kinda miserable. I see what he's trying to do, but unfortunately he comes across as more of a grump than anything else.

My other fave? The girl looking for Prince Charming.

" Please be interesting and don't be gross, be original or don't bother."

And rich and old. Let's fix her up with Cary Grant's character in "Daddy Longlegs."

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
