Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist carousel horseThe 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...

Pick-up line at the co-op: commenting on a woman's seeds.

Because what woman wouldn't want to tag along on a "strip club adventure."

She hit him -- and now he's hitting on her.

This is actually... generous and helpful.

"[T]ell me how i told you to fill your crack..."

Things you learn on Craigslist: there are nudist swim parties. (Heated pool. Obviously.)

"Calling all ticklers of the capital region..."

That sounds... awkward.

We kind of hope they can work out the math on this.

Little known fact: dogs post in missed connections.

People paying other people's tolls seems to happen fairly often. Hey, there are nice people out there.

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.
