Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist electric football gameThe 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...

"If the Mayans are right and the world is coming to an end on Friday....wouldnt you want to maximize the good times you can have before its all over??"

They made eye contact at the eye doctor.

"I love what we did with 1 boot on."

Fate brought them together in Troy, civic duty kept them apart.

"I know this is a snowballs chance, but hey its winter and i might have a better chance than i think..."

Diligent vacuuming got in the way.

He's trying to hit on someone who's about to jab him with a needle. Bold.

Perhaps the first All Good Bakers missed connection.

"I won't make you cry," she says to guys.

Craigslist, where trust issues fight to take physical form.

The problem is, on Craigslist at least, saying "I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised at the whole package. Trust me...lol" has all sorts of possible unfortunate meanings.

He wants to come over to your place to... play pinball.

The papers are apparently worth more than the computer. (Data almost always is, these days.)

Nice people exist!

I know some people get excited when they hear that some chain from outside the area is coming to the Capital Region, but I'm not one of them. Local businesses mean local dollars; the money stays here rather than going to a corporate headquarters far, far away. If Price Chopper is sold to an outside company - especially a company that answers to its stockholders more than its customers - that could have a huge impact.
