Mr. Spring has one set that verbalizes "It's Thursday, time to take out the trash."

That is what your alarms will say when y'all get old.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Hi, Debbie Downer here again:

In all seriousness...the people I'm talking about don't wait for an invite or permission to bypass the garage. They bring their own engraved invites...from Sig Sauer, Glock, Smith & Wesson, etc. You know, 'cuz it's their "right." Happens all.the.time. here in the Bay Area--2 - 3 weeks ago was the latest, in fact.

I deal with CL all the time as both a seller and a buyer--we always have people at us for being "paranoid." Whatever, because they're also the first to criticize those who walk into traps set by robbers and worse.

Obvi it's your choice, so I won't say another word on the matter. I'm just relieved that it didn't go awry.

Heck, I get paranoid just going to Target worrying I'll get attacked, but that's a whole other story. What is weird to me is that people would doubt you for being paranoid. How can anyone sell something on CL and NOT be paranoid. If I were single I would never, ever be able to do it. We've gone to buy something before and the woman just had her door open letting people come and go and I was totally freaked out. How does that possibly feel safe?!?

We've sold so much on Craig's List here and in CT and while we do try to be extremely careful, nobody can guarantee what will happen. I guess it's a risk one takes when they're trying to sell their excess, which we always are in preparation for the next move (seems to be a never ending process). I'm not 100% comfortable with people even seeing into our garage, but some things just can't be transported for a meeting elsewhere. We've let our neighbors know when we have someone coming so not only are they keeping an eye out, while Mr. Spring is dealing with the person I'm inside nearby where I can hear with my phone in hand in case I need to call someone. I still know even then things can happen, but I'd say 99% of the interactions we've had with folks have been great. The 1% that weren't were only because the people were either super nosy (look, lady..it's none of your business why we live in CT and have FL tags, but go ahead and keep suggesting that you'll report us LOL) or just really awkward. I'm always very vague in details about our schedule when setting up a meeting time and things like that.

Even the guy who overstayed yesterday was extremely nice and I think Mr. Spring actually enjoyed his conversation with him that covered everything from music to serving in the military. And one guy who bought some fishing tackle stuff even gave him the name of a place to go fishing and one guy who bought a tent was really grateful for all the information on how to set up/take down the tent and care for it. Hopefully the situation will never arise where Mr. Spring has to bring his own engraved invitation into the situation, but if he does we're as prepared as we can be.

And being a seasoned seller if you have any tips feel free to share them! I'm always looking for ways to avoid the cray-cray.

We always put in the ad that we will only meet inside the lobby of the police station or in a busy public place--like Starbucks inside Safeway. We also always put a code in the ad that any responding parties must put in the subject line of their responses--this avoids spammers and people who are not really serious or smart enough to follow directions. I'm really vague about schedules, too, and I always let Mr. HC make any phone calls. Another option is Ebay with local pickup only...but I don't have as much success selling things locally that way. I've sold a wide variety of items on CL from hair products to a washer/dryer set to a $25,000 vehicle.

We're close to some really sketchy areas (like East Oakland) over here, and there are a lot of sketchy people in this part of the Bay, so I'm pretty suspicious of everyone. LOL, I'm very alert in parking lots as well...I've watched enough crime shows about women being abducted in broad daylight from busy parking lots. I'm glad you guys are prepared...I've been considering getting my own "engraved invitation" recently.

I had terrible chicken pox when I was in kindergarten. I had them all over my face and eyelids - I even still have a scar under my chin from a big one.

They say that you get them worse if you are prone to eczema and stuff, which I am.

I am the dermatitis queen. I get contact dermatitis all the time, most often on my forearms if they sweat against a table when I'm wearing short sleeves. I've been getting rashes on the inside of my elbows all winter, I think from irritation from sweat while running. I get patches of dyshidrotic eczema on my fingers and feet (thankfully, MUCH less than I used to get), which are completely noncontagious but make me look diseased and are hell to get rid of.

If there is a rash out there, it seems like my body finds a way to get it.

That's a good idea about the code, but I have to admit it kind of tickles me when people do stupid stuff.

Like a guy has emailed me on two different days now asking the same questions about an item and guess what? All that info is IN THE AD. Or someone will email wanting to know exactly where we are in relation to them and I'm thinking Ok, so you used Craig's List, but you can't use Google to look up our town?? I love it!

Our pile is getting smaller, hoping two more items go this afternoon and we'll be even closer to a cleaner garage and no more afternoons dedicated to wondering if anyone will show up.

Thanks for the concern, it is appreciated.

I remember my chicken pox were horrible. I had them everywhere and they were all infected. I was in so much pain. I lived in oatmeal baths.

I also remember being in the hospital with pneumonia, having my tonsils out at 16, and my appendix out - but that was only 10 years ago.

Chicken pox oog me out bc theyre a total body, big ol' herpes outbreak. Cold sores are no big deal, and so comparitively I think genital herpes should equally not have its dirty stigma - but full body makes me go 'ew'. And then 'ouch'.

chicken pox just causes shingles (it's actual name has herpes in it!) which is body herpes.

Chicken pox is like the Herpes 1 and Shingles is Herpes type 2.


I wish they didn't have the bad stigma either, because all are equally bad. And herpes 2 can spread anywhere or is herpes 1 that can spread to your genitals? I forget but they're all equally lame. (I SHOULD KNOW I JUST COVERED THIS CHAPTER IN CLASS SHOWS HOW MUCH I PAY ATTENTION/CARE ABOUT DARK SIDED SCHOOL)


Btw, remember my class with all the whiney people crying about study guides...THEY MADE MY TEACHER QUIT. SHE QUIT BECAUSE SHE SAID THE CLASSROOM WAS TOXIC.

That made me sad, I tried to defend her when the chair of the department came in and said "In my major we don't get study guides...you guyse have it made" and everyone glared at me.

Whatever. they literally cried because the questions were hard, they were in the book, I may not have studied until thirty minutes before BUT I SAW THEM DIRECTLY IN THE BOOK. This one woman cursed the teacher out over it. They were like "she doesn't tell us what to study" I was like "NO TEACHER TELLS ANYONE WHAT TO STUDY WELCOME TO COLLEGE"
I don't remember having Chicken Pox but I did get Shingles in my mid-thirties. That was the single most painful thing I have ever experienced and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. A N Y O N E!

Aaaaand, like your guy, they asked me where I was located...uh, really? You sent me an offer, which I could have accepted, and you didn't even notice the item was local pickup only 7 hours away from where you live????? I should accept the offer then give you negative feedback just for being so careless...but I didn't.

I love (code: hate) those spammers who respond to CL ads, don't follow directions and send an email which simply reads: "Is it still available?" They got me the first couple of times.

I *think* it's that herpes type 1 can be spread to the genital area too - but I thought they were interchangeable, like 1 can go where 2 is, 2 can go where 1 is - like there is no actual 'genital herpes' other than it's just herpes on a specific area, and it can be virus 1 or 2.

Then I wonder, if it's in your system, because you've had chicken pox, or cold sores, is there any way to be SURE it can't spread to other areas and become reoccurring cold sores or genital sores?

I'm sorry. Herpes fascinates me. It's a virus that lays dormant, and occasionally comes out to reinfect specific target areas, and people (especially men) are sometimes asymptomatic, so people be spreading that stuff without even knowing it - and some studies believe there are instances where you can catch it from inanimate objects, and there can possibly be years between contact and the first outbreak so there's no true real way to tell where it came from, and they have no cure for it...I believe that eventually all of mankind will be infected with some type of herpes. Maybe that will be the ZA!


(I'm weirdly fascinated with STD's. I will look up pictures on the internet. It's sick. Boyfriend is not a fan of me doing this by the way.)

Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Reese Witherspoon all vacationed together in Mexico. I love the idea of them all as friends! Obviously I knew about Drew and Cameron, but Reese as a 3rd - I like that! Now if only I can get them to invite me. I would've loved to go to Mexico with you guys!
