1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Whoa there! You don't want to get all in "over your head" with consumer debt. Think about this.

    Maybe one of the best brands will have a budget line of toasters, sort of like Mani with suits. That way I could get a toaster and also maintain my strong financial position in today's marketplace of today.

    When toasters are involved, you need quality..

    There is only one kind of transaction I do on Craigslist of which is not buying appliances.

    That kind of transaction has mostly moved to backpage. I have bought many appliances from craigslist and have been satisfied every time.

    People on backpage are "cray cray in the membrane."

    That's because you don't need your appliances for making martinis.

    Was that broken-down dishwasher one of your satisfactory CL purchases?

    I wrote a novella it is called "Against the Grain." Here's a synopsis: There is a guy in the village (Mitch) who of a sudden starts growing wheat on his face instead of whiskers. The villagers recognize what is happening and they try to take advantage of the situation to get a lifetime supply of wheat (Mitch's lifetime that is). The villagers tied Mitch down to the ground and "tilled" his face by striking it with garden tools they had in their sheds. This caused Mitch to be in a lot of pain to where he yelled out "Stop it!"

    The moral of the story is that we need to be careful about the metaphors we use because they might become true.

    I tried to buy a transmission from someone on Craigslist but the use of slang led to quite a misunderstanding.

    "the Evans Scholars program, which covers tuition and housing for former golf caddies."

    Are former golf caddies that disadvantaged of a lot that they need their own scholarship program?
