Craigslist + Crazy People = Much Hilarity

At work, we having a running "game" as to who can find the craziest FREE stuff on craigslist. If you've never checked out the free section, I strongly encourage you to do so. And after you do once, you won't be able to stop yourself from doing it every day.

The best one that we've found before today [and there have been MANY], has definitely been the lady giving away the dry cheese packets out of the box macaroni n cheese. You see, her mother uses the macaroni out of the boxes to make her macaroni salad and they have a bunch of cheese packets left over from all this macaroni salad her mother makes for church, pot lucks, and whatnot, so she figured someone should be able to get use of the leftover cheese - I mean, some people like extra cheese in the mac n cheese, right?! Totally logical. And then it seems some people just have too much time on their hands to post random crap for free on craigslist.

Well today, a girl at work found this little gem:

"Always & Stayfree maxi-pads and panty liners NEW in packages:
I have one unopened package of 36 ct. Always ultra thin regular with flexi wings,
One package of 12 ct Always clean (have attached wipes with each pad) overnight ultra thin with wings.
Two packages for 34ct Always dri-liners for sizes 14+ (really they are the size of a maxi-pad as apposed to a regular panti-liner, but very thin.
I also have two packages of Stayfree dry max Clean (pad + wipe) 12ct.
I have reached that point in my life where I no longer need these products buy don't really want to return them to the store.
So you would be getting 5 packages totaling 128 pads for $10.
I meet at the Starbucks near 127th and Antioch, OP, KS 66213
If you see it here, I have it. I ALWAYS promptly delete sold items."

It just gets better as you read on, but there's a few of my favorite details I want to point out:
1. I love the detail description of every item, because if I was desperate enough to buy pads from someone I would definitely care what types they were.
2. "I've reached that point in my life where I no longer need these products..." Hmmm...awkward. She obviously means menopause, but you could change it to any hilarious situation you like. I like to imagine she [he] had a sex change operation and no longer has a period. You go boy! Which completely explains whey HE wouldn't want to return them to the store - guys don't do that sort of thing you know...
3. Would you even be ABLE to return this sort of thing to the store - who DOES that??! And what store would accept them back, oh yeah, WalMart.
4. Listing what a deal this is "You get 5 packages of 128 for the low, low bargain price of $10" - this is a BRILLIANT marketing scheme, I totally want to buy these just because WHAT A DEAL!
5. I think its even better that she's charging $10 for these rather than giving them away for free.
6. Meeting at Starbucks...can't you just picture this deal going down in a Starbucks??

I. Love. Craigslist.

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.


Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight...
Ok...um...that worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …
