Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist fossil rockThe 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...

On manscaping: "I asked my barber if he would help me out and he looked at me like I had two heads!"

"It's platonic. Which if that means what I think it means it means I don't care what you look like. But be hot. Or at least just pretend like your hot. I'll never know."

"[Y]ou have awesome blue eyes and super nice hair... And an exceptional cough...."

"If you are interested in having someone take care of your flowing mane, contact me."

Oh, burn.

Lost at a zoo party? Understandable.

Probably best not asked on Craigslist: "How much is your safety worth?"

Maybe the first (and last) lost calculator item.

And this is sweet (really): "I hugged you goodbye under the light in the corner of the basketball court and then you pulled me out of the light and you kissed me, wich effectivly put me beside myself for weeks after that."

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
