Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist blue-eyed goatThe 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...

"Can we be friends when we're whales?"

You can't flirt in here -- this is the War Room!

"You were a female with a mohawk." Well, the could be anyone.

He's hoping the guy has a scratch that needs to be itched. Again.

She was a hottie at the bar -- the Genius Bar.

He's hoping she'll improvise their story with him.

He was buying Oreos at the 1:30 in morning. Dude.

Her "really cute" feet are also very tan, presumably.

He would have been upset that she rear-ended his car -- but she was hot.

Craigslist is not the appropriate venue to tell him you're pregnant.

Craigslist should really consider a "we saw each other on dates with other people" category.

How we sort ourselves: "I do not own any North Face or UnderArmour gear, and I don't see Dave @ SPAC summer after summer."

Yeah, that's thing, making out would nullify the platonic part.

He wants to trade honey-do for lunch and baked goods.

Ladies, she wants to move to California with you.

i'm buying a house and i didn't want to get a lawnmower...i'm thinking i might have to buy the goats to keep my lawn groomed.

@colleen, that'd be super cute if you got tiny goats, a whole herd of them!

I've been lobbying for this for our itty bitty lot for years, but the spouse approval factor keeps hampering things...

@gina--i plan on just telling the City of Troy that they are mistaken when they tell me i cannot have livestock; these are "kids" not livestock. i see the goats in lieu of mowing the lawn as a win-win for everyone.
