Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist 1953 DesotoThe 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...

The situation sounds like a Death Cab song.

"I kinda wanted to walk up to you And buy you a cheeseburger Because I thought you might be like a good witch or something."

Not sure why what she looked like should have stopped her from touching his bald head.

Important question at the Ruck: "Are you related to the guy who asked me not to eat his dog? "

His kickboxing workout makes her sweat.

If he's a "murse," does that make her a "wurse"?

Attraction can happen anywhere -- even the landfill.

From Brooklyn, now in Malta, looking for someone to teach her how to drive.

Is it possible she broke up with him so she wouldn't have to go to the Nickelback concert?

"Sorry but I'm not telling people I found a wedding date on Craigslist." Where's the demand, there's supply.

"Our family found a ferret in our driveway tonight." Just a usual night in Altamont.

A happy Craigslist story.
