Craig and his wonderful list

Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

"If you would like to stop living in that box and move into my apartment I think we can work on your biting problem together."

"You were like an angel in a room full of grief..."

"If you remember me tell me what color my glow was." (You'd probably remember a glowing person, right?)

Yes, what would come of a conversation about e-cigarettes.

Pretty sure the spelling of her name isn't the factor keeping them from connecting, but at least he's covering his bases.

From the Annals of Possibly Less-Than-Good Ideas: hitting on the woman who goes to the gym with the enormous, muscled boyfriend.

"I never want you to wear baggy sweatpants, but if you did id definitely get more working out done."

Her complete lack of direction resulted in his tongue being tied.

Racino pickup line: "if you are free would not mind feeding your machine for a while."

The rare server-for-customer missed connection.

Wonk seeks lady wonk.

You'd notice Murphy if you saw him in Lansingburgh.

With 220+ bottles, that tree is worth at least $11. Someone will be all over that bad boy.

I thought CL prohibited the sale of animals on the site?

I grew up in the Utica area and moved out here in 1998. It really is funny how different the cultures are less than 100 miles away. It's more laid back in the Utica/Syracuse area, and the culture is much more "country" whereas Albany and a lot of the are around it is much more fast paced and has more of a NYC influence. Both are nice places to live, but definitely different vibes.

The best place to get a fresh-cut Christmas tree?
