    Magnificent stove … of mystery! – $75

    In today’s social climate, we’re bombarded with facts, figures, statistics and logic. Where, I ask you, is the mystery? The wonderment? The success of such films as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Harry Potter, and From Justin To Kelly says to me that we’re all just aching to bring a touch of enigma into our worlds.

    And friends, I can offer you just that.

    What we have here is one Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 electric range, which worked admirably well – until the day it didn’t. I, being the fairly poor cook that I am, thought the oven was just rejecting my offering of garlic Texas Toast – as well it should have. I have no business trying to prepare such a sumptuous feast. But the stove continued to give the cold shoulder to my far more gastronomically skilled boyfriend, and at that point I had to face the fact that our stove was permanently on strike.

    Here’s where the mystery comes in – is it the stove which is broken, or is it the electrical supply? Your guess is as good as mine. We’ll know for sure on Thursday when our new stove arrives – but wouldn’t you like to cash in on a possible steal ahead of time? Maybe stoves are easily fixed. I wouldn’t know. Our landlord has no interest in finding out, and, as we’re renting, I don’t care enough to put any energy or money into this problem. I am not, however, above trying to profit mildly from it. Clearly.

    So, bring the childlike innocence and wonder back into your life today! Buy this possibly broken stove! Maybe it’ll work like a charm. It’s fairly new (I believe the landlord said 4 years), and we didn’t use it much. And it’s clean! And I’ll clean it again before you buy it! Just … you know, get it out of my house.

    That rug is going to give me nightmares.

    The person who does the Apartment Therapy Scavenger posts sent me this earlier today, it’s pretty great:

    That rug is making me rethink my plan to turn the gerbils into glove cuffs when they go.

    This one is pretty great:

    Rent just went up and me and my girlfriend gotta get out of here. As every renter knows of the horrors and daunting tasks associated with moving, e.g. accumulating useful items that are never used, junk, makeshift furniture, yurts and so on I am inviting you to please take a look at my junk (not anatomically or erotically speaking). Below is a list of the items I wish to rid myself of. Some being free, none being over thirty dollars, and all would look fantastic in your home because it would no longer be in mine.

    this is something of an internet trend as of late inspired by a boing boingy person and others to embellish things for sale to make them more appealing, rather than the usual cookie cutter bullshit or just plain lack of information

    I think Craigslist would be more successful if it automatically added “HAUNTED” to the beginning of the title of every for-sale ad.

    Actually, I bet this would work for the personals, too.

    hahahhaah that works as like a mad lib even:

    HAUNTED White Honda/ HAUNTED Blonde Hair – m4w (Rte. 315 southbound)
    from craigslist | missed connections in columbus

    Couldn’t help but notice you as you were driving south on HAUNTED 315 this HAUNTED morning. It was about 8:45 a.m. around the HAUNTED Henderson Road intersection. You had your HAUNTED sunglasses on. I was the HAUNTED handsome guy in the HAUNTED black SUV passing you on my way into HAUNTED work. HAUNTED, I don’t think you noticed :-(.

    If you see this posting and are interested in making a new friend I’d love to hear from you!
