Some Comic Relief..The Best of Craigslist tag..

Ok..I need to do something other than 'politics'. Once and while, even for this poli sci major, politics gets on my nerve big time. So I need to do/read/write something completely different. This morning, inspiration struck and I thought, what the hey, I can start my own 'tagging'..

I know some intense political bloggers who are veritable citizen journalists/activists and who keep theirs' and our flames of political passion glowing. In the light of the last tense weeks of our neverending election (so it seems).. I think they and I need a 'wee' break.

So darlings..this is the deal. Post at least one of your favourite 'best of craigslist'. There are some great ones out there and we're all in need of a good laugh. Seriously, WE are! I'll post one of my favourites, then tag a few people (what the hey, make up your own number just don't go past the 8 or 10 mark) who you think need a little 'time off'..a little belly laugh, a little health boost as it were. And as the tagging goes, tag back to whom tagged whom. You know the drill.

Here is one of my faves and after that, check to see if I am trying to give you a 'day off'..

Simon Ellinas: Caricaturist and cartoonist blog

Nemesis required. 6-month project with possibilty to extend

I've been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I'm 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing. I feel like I'm old before my time. I need to inject some excitement into my daily routine through my arm before its too late. I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I'm willing to pay $350 up front for you services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when Im running to catch the BART and occasionaly whisper in my ear, "Ahha, we meet again". That kind of thing. Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me. You need to have an evil streak and be blessed with innate guile and cunning. You should also be adept at inconsicuous pursuit. Evil laugh preferred. Send me a photo and a brief explanation why you would be a good nemesis.

British accent preferred.

OK lovelies (imagine the British accent, whichever one at that), your turn;

Christopher. Talk about intense! Does he ever get a foot rub or neck massage?? Those neck muscles are intense dude..your turn to POST!!

Robster. Robbie or RJ to some but hey, we go back a few years and in blogosphere time, that counts at least multiplied by... Robster has his latino passion for all things politics and sports. One hell of a combination, I can only imagine what the tv has to endure when he watches a game..ehem (blink blink)..Robbie...darlin' muchacho..por favor..gimme somethin' good. I know you can appreciate some good humour when you read it and of course, no censorship allowed!!

Jim! The intensity seems to be all with the men I think. No worries, some women to follow. Jim Jim Jim.. the end is nigh and still he exorts us by telling us to all schtick together and hope for the best. Sigh, seeing the end of times is heavy duty stuff and nothing alleviates the burden of Jim the Atlas by getting him to post a little comedy so Jim...take a load of your feet, unburden your heart and your mind.. give us something good! (the best of craigslist to me is for the most part pre-tty funny).. POST!

Utah Savage. Her name says it all...yikes. But with a bipolar disorder that most of us are not burdened with, her fortunate outlet, among other things, is her blog. She's an amazing writer but still, her latest post being 'Poo Pie'...hmmm, me thinks she's in dire need for some 'best of craigslist'! Com'on Utah S...I'm expecting something hilarious and raunchy out of that stack! You're IT!

Enigma..she's my personal red phone nurse on call but really, everyone's caretaker with sage advice of all kinds, personal, emotional, health wise and all around, probably the female arch type of the first true Atlas. I mean really, did the first man really carry the weight of the world on his shoulders? That, my friends, was probably a woman and a mother to boot because those mommy genes realize that there's nothing to be gotten with war and everything to be gained by sharing what the world has and keeping the peace between us all. (Palinotologists excepted). So dear Enigma mine..stop the countdown for just a minute and post something that makes you laugh. No holds barred and as I said before, NO (SELF)CENSORSHIP!!

Helenwheels..this LA self-described hippie chick must be channeling MAD TV "Bullshit" and even though she's got plenty of reasons like the rest of us to be appalled, dismayed, pissed off etc at the mainstream media..who's going to keep you sane through all of this?? Yes, THANK YOU.. ME! Time for a little 'pottymouth' break missy of the craigslist variety. Come on. I know you can do it. (the pottier the better, go wild)

That's it! Kindly link back to me and do let me know if you participated. It's all in good fun and hell, after 8yrs plus being condensed in these last alive..we need it. All! Have fun.

OK Ingrid! I'm in! How sweet of you to create a diversion of hilarity for us. I for one can't resist "the humor" and this is a great excuse for me to read through the most recent craigslist best of's since I haven't for way too long.

And you just know it will be a potty mouthed one.

I absolutely love the "nemessis wanted" ad. Pure genius.

Thanks much! Yeah, I do loves me some politics. Especially, this year!

Eight years of Bush/Cheney really lite a fire under me.

You are too funny! I spend all my time trying to get the truth out but I have nothing weighing on me. This is just our life no big deal! Now hold on! I tell everyone I know nothing about computers or anything on them so this might make you laugh! What is Craigs List?

Yeah, I'm wondering where to channel my OCD-like fixation on politics to after the election's over. Actually, though, the next election will undoubtedly start right away with how election cycles are any more.

And then there may be the revolution to contend with...

Oh honey, I have never looked at Craig's List. I know it's some kind of place to find a place to rent or someone to do a handyman thing, but I'm not sure now is the time for me to acquaint myself with Craig's List, since I am onto the muckity muckraking and cataloguing the instances of McCain/Palin poo pie flinging to see what sticks. Make fun of me if you must, but I'm obsessed.

Dusty and I are starting a new writer's secret site, only this time with no murderous requirements and boys can join too. Once Dusty got her hands on me I got very busy. And two weeks left on this race seems like moments. I have outside work that really needs doing and I must make myself stop this blog reading and blog writing to do my chores. But now I've been cross posted on The Siren's Chronicles. I can't keep up. it's hell being old and crazy. You try it.

Hi Ingrid~ Thought I'd swing by your blog & visit. We could use some laughter, it's been a rough election year.

Helen dear, thx for passing it along and being a good sport. I don't tend to do 'tag' type stuff but I felt that we needed humour.. it's like watching a soap (which i never do but I used to watch the British 'coronation street').. there's only so much 'drama' I can handle brain just needs a reprieve.. I'm really wired for humour and I haven't had much of an outlet for that lately..well, try ever since I moved to this country sorry to say.. (am more of an anglophile bri-ish style [g])

Franster, thx for stopping by. We do share some blogs but somehow never venture into each others' many blogs so little time. I've even neglected Enigma's of late, I get into times like that..I have a bleep load of blogs on my blog roll except they're in my favourites list and not on a proper blogroll.. one of these days..
but yes, we so need humour..I cannot even stand the 'humour' of the daily show etc. when they make fun of Palin...I absolutely cannot stand her and like the likes of Coulter and Malkin..they're better left to be ignored and not acknowledged.. their vileness is too much ..

back to humour..Utah cannot muster the tag for the time being.. Fran...are you up for one? Let me know I'd love to see what you'd pick..
