soooo..God is awesome :)
soooo I explained to my neighbor about my fiance’s situation and she looked on craigslist.com (because I wasnt smart enough to look there). There was ONE house that was in the area they needed. 2 bedrooms: one for c. and t. and one for j. They alow pets. Its about the same price as their current living quarters, but more livable since Psycho mommy doesnt own it :) One glitch tho… when they called the owner, he alredy had a couple coming to look at it :/
Fortunately the other couple didnt like it so my fiance and his sister just finished signing the rental agreement :) mve in day is TOMORROW!!!!
moral of the day: GOD IS AWESOME!!! :) :) :)
Posting Expired (A poem about CraigsList.com)
Two females in their thirties
The guy known as Stan
Heather and Becca
Sean and Mike
Tom, Nez, Zac, Chris and Samia
The gay guy who worked as a designer
The “straight gal attorney”
The papasan chair fine diner
Females of various twenty something ages
The ones simply known as “the ladies”
Marie who liked to drink whiskey straight
Two sets of musicians
None of you replied.
And I never got to see beyond the text of the sunny room in the 3 bedroom flat
The amazing room overlooking Dolores park …
The two level Victorian Flat in Soma with the cat
The lack of reply from the Gorgeous Sunny Room with Garden View made me depressed
and eight others descriptions I’ve successfully repressed
The house with five spaces
Never let me see those four other faces
“Easy going guy” was too easy going to reply
The hard working professional was far too hard working to get back to me.
There was the lady who was looking for someone to talk about the day whilst sharing a bottle of wine and host the occasional dinner party
There were people that needed urgently saving
Yet urgent seems to have meant within ten minutes of them posting the ad
There were ones who were looking to create a quiet, peaceful, clean home
Yet that “One male and two females” didn’t want me to complete them
Lucy and Kev
I mailed them twice
K and E
I mailed them thrice
Kathy awarded me “the most creative response” so I gave her my number to meet
My follow up obviously lacked the required spark
I got no reply so I was obviously wide off the mark
Vesela did the same
Never heard from her again
Ami and Kayla
Lindsey, Molly, Sonya and Braden
Were all looking for another girl
So my penis let me down
All these e-mails and only few bothered to reply at all
Becky, Todd, Dean were only interested in a short term let
James for some reason I forgot to return his call
Laura said I sounded great fun…
..yet Laura tragically had already found someone
Jessica was the first with whom I got to second base
I got to meet her 2 other roommates who’s names I forget (but at least I saw a face)
We didn’t have much in common and they didn’t seem fun
They didn’t call back
But no harm done
I had my first open house where I thought Alice from France and I got along
We spoke the most yet she never called back
I was obviously wrong
(I blame Tiffany the blonde)
I didn’t bother responding to the ad requesting “friends with benefits”
To say the one who specified a “God fearing individual” sounded fun would be a lie
Yet I felt the “420 friendly must be kink aware” guy was intriguing enough to try
He had an awesome roof with spectacular views where we shared a goodbye bong
but sadly the location and the heavy stench of weed
made me feel the place were wrong
Ligia was Mexican, tidy, laid back and cool
Yet she was thirty years older
and upon entering made me take of my shoes
Elena had an open house as she was moving out to live with some poor sod
There I could not get myself heard over an Asian American who kept saying ‘oh my god’
Daniel was weird in that he kept staring at me in a way that made me wander which way he might sway
I’m pretty sure that they went for the hot persian girl
So pretty sure he’s not gay
They were quite far out of the city
So I’m over it okay?
I liked the idea of living with the two Spanish dudes who worked in the valley
There was something nice about the idea of living in L’Auberge Espagnole
and I could imagine us getting quite ‘pally’
Yet under pressure they couldn’t make a decision
I just hope that we can still go for drinks
On their nice roof and out in the Mission
Yug bless him he kindly replied
Yet after a Google Street View and a success
I changed my mind
As I’ve got a place now
It’s “my posting” that has expired
Broke? Go Craigslisting!
OK, folks, here it is. If you’ve been sleeping on the “free stuff” section on craigslist.com - WAKE UP!!!! Money is tight these days and that’s exactly why craigslist should be your favorite place to shop. You wouldn’t believe the things you can get for FREE - but you have to be quick!
Here are a few tips to get the most out of free craigslisting:
1. Download the craigslist app for your smartphone. Setup an alert for items that you are shopping for in the free section so you will be the first to know when they come available.
2. Get a truck or a friend with a truck. If you are looking for larger items, it’s always best if you have a truck at your disposal. If you don’t have a truck or a friend with a truck, Home Depot and Lowe’s are great for short term rentals to pick up items. Also, there are several people on craigslist that will pick up and deliver your items for a nominal fee. Do a search for them.
3. Shop for friends. Keep your homies in mind when you are shopping the free section on craigslist. Maybe you don’t need a particular item, but your friend does. You could make their day. Plus, it’s FREE!
I have gotten quite a few items for free off craigslist to include several gallons of paint, 2 full size chairs for the den, and more. Heck, I’m on craigslist right now browsing the free section to see what I can come up on. Emails to owners sent!!
“Missed Connection - Taco Bell Girl - South County To the cutest girl I've ever met- I call you a girl but you're not. I worked with you for a short time, and you pride yourself for having an 84 year old womans soul. If circumstances were different I would have asked you out on a date the moment I met you. You're beautiful and you are possibly the coolest most awesome person I have ever met. I don't see you often and I haven't for awhile, but when I do I always try to set you up with one of my friends. Don't ask me why, I guess it's so I can keep you somewhat in my life, and maybe live vicariously through a friend... I know its weird but it's the only explanation I have. You put me in an odd situation, in that the one regret I have is not being able to say this to your face. I've moved on to greater things just like I know you'll do soon enough. I don't believe that there is one singular person for everyone. We are limited to proximity and time. I understand this and am still faced with regret for what might have been, and I know that whatever guy you decide upon had better be worthy of you. ”—
Oh my goodness! I am 84% certain that this is about me! Excitement. I love Craigslist Missed Connections!!! :)
My Emailed Response:
Perhaps I’m presumptuous in assuming that this is me, but I don’t think there are very many girls that refer to themselves as eighty-four-year-old women out there (let alone at South County Taco Bells). If I’m correct in this, you should know that I am more than elated to have a Missed Connection written about me. You know how much I love Craigslist and all other forms of online creepiness.
And so I must submit my guess…
Mr. Green in the billiards room with the wrench!?
No? Well, damn. I really thought I had something there.
*scrunches face and hopes that she’s right ‘cause if not this is going to be really, really awkward*
