Craig and his wonderful list

purple crocsThe 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...

This "pudgy, cool" crested canary needs a new home because he's stifling another canary.

This guy's looking for a friend for his lonely goldfish.

He says he's "not expecting anything other then some good old fashioned cuddleing!!"

But this guy wants to tickle you.

She's looking for a Metallica miracle -- maybe these people can help.

He would like to serve as a placeholder for you.

Here's your opportunity to be his rebound date.

How beautiful was she? "Even the old farts reading their newspapers put them down for a minute."

The "most beautiful girl I have ever seen in my life" rides the #12 bus.

This guy looked right past -- well, over -- her date.

And he would have gotten her number if it weren't for those meddling kids.

This guy seems to have a photographic memory for attractive mothers.

Dr. Seuss costume? Hot.

We're pretty sure that's part of her job.

Surprise of the week: purple Crocs don't totally kill your chances of meeting women.

I've stopped selling/buying things on CL because every time I read this, I become more and more afraid of who's out there. Although, "old farts" is a pretty accurate description of who reads the newspaper at Stewarts, so I can't fault that guy in particular.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
