The original blog, You Suck at Craigslist, started because a woman with a great sense of humor looked for furniture for her new pad, using Craigslist. The absurd things she found she sent to her friends with witty comments. The friends encouraged her to start a blog, and the rest was history. Until that tragic day a year agot when the Llama-nun and the Ostrimu decided to retire on the huge amount of money they made from book and movie deals. (This last part needs a citation.)
One special part of YSaC, much like we have here, was the community of commentators who supplied even more stunning wit and repartee. Many of them stand out in memory, Lola, Grampdaddy, Eclectic Mama, Taco Magic. I am honored that Cap’nMac and Ralph, One Moving Violation, and a few others, choose to drop in here when time allows.
However, long before the demise of the original blog, a commentator known as Colleen of MA posted that she had pruchased a mattress from a Craigslist ad. It had a strange smell, so it resided out on her balcony until it aired out.
And that was the last we ever heard from her. (Cue spooky music!)
