I Heart Craig And His Lists

Craigslist in Salt Lake City was pretty much a wasteland of weirdos looking to meet up. That's because one of the news stations there has a classifieds section on their site that puts Craigslist to shame.

But in Pennsylvania Craigslist is awesome. Not only do we live near Penn State where college kids are constantly getting rid of stuff, but hundred year old farmhouses abound, meaning when grandma kicks off her grandkids sell her shit on Craigslist.

I've scored some really cool stuff lately, but my favorite is this retro chair that I got for $15. FIFTEEN BUCKS! I got it for our office but it ended up looking so good in our house I think I'm gonna leave it there. Conversely, I wish I could rip out that shitty baseboard heating but I've grown attached to being warm when the snow flies.

By the way! New post up on MamaPop about Mz. Oprah. Are you still a fan?
