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.

I'm glad to see people involved in community decisions. But at the same time, we can't just keep saying we want development "somewhere else" or "not in my backyard!". Having mini-suburbs in the city of Albany was feasible at one point in time, and now development is catching up. ...
