8-14-11 Sunday (She Sells Sea Shells On Craigslist)

Jim started his day by looking through more Craigslist ads for more bargains.  I must say, Craigslist is pretty amusing.  Now, I don’t mean to offend but here’s some of the more humorous ads he spotted:

CorellAbove: Click to bigafy.  This ad is funny on 2 levels.  #1, we have this set in the motor home because a- we got it for free from Jim’s mom; b-it’s light weight; c-they stack nicely and take up little space.  #2, it’s hideous but the ad boasts how you get service for 20 and is a steal if you entertain. 

FiestaAbove: Click to bigafy.  WHITE Fiesta dinnerware screams “what’s the point?”

SeashellAbove: Click to bigafy.  Sorry, unless you’re elderly, there’s nothing cute about this outdate (mauve and teal) hideous lamps.  If you own something similar, to each their own I guess.  Feel free to make fun of me, I’m a big boy.

ShaverAbove: Click to bigafy.  Ewwwww.  A used razor.  AND it has a problem.

Late morning, Billy and Mike came over for brunch.  Sausage, waffles and mimosas.  Yum.  We all took a ride over to the new house.  I didn’t take any photos since nothing had changed since my last set of photos.  After the house tour, we “introduced” Mike and Billy to the world of Ikea.  We didn’t buy anything except cinnamon rolls and drinks.  We spent forever there.

Later we met them for dinner at a Mexican restaurant, Fiesta Maya.  Good food, good company.

On the way home, Jim and I stopped off at Food Lion.  This particular store was a Bloom which was owned by the same people who own Food Lion.  They converted all the Bloom stores in the area to Food Lion.  Ugh.  I wonder how many times I can say Bloom and Food Lion?  Anyway, Bloom was a cool store that I could walk around, scan stuff, bag it while I shopped, and pay for it all at once and leave (I blogged about it here).  Food Lion’s tend to be nasty icky stores.  The point of my story was to tell you about some items in the store that we found amusing.

2011-08-14 004Above: Unfortunately the label didn’t photograph well but it’s a Rubbermaid featuring an easy find lid.  If you can’t find the lid for this thing, it’s just plain lost.

2011-08-14 003Above: Ping Pong Balls, mayo, ketchup.  One of these things is not like the other.

Well, now that I’ve just about made a post that criticizes everything…


  1. Hmm...that used razor is in my neck of the woods. Maybe we should consider moving.

    On that last one, the answer is ketchup, right? 'Cause it's red...see?

  2. One of these things is not like the other...

    Ketchup! LOLOLOLOL

  3. Craigslist is always a great place to go for cheap entertainment. How do you find the MSRP for used dinnerware? Is there a Kelly Blue Book for it?

    Thanks for the good laughs.

  4. I love the "click to bigafy" feature on your post! I'm a huge fan of word invention. Except when corporate morons do it. But you totally rock it. :)
