Cutting to the chase, how about a Runner-Up:

Roor, Hvy, Zong, Custom glass, Mini (San Diego)

Bong, anyone? A word for any law enforcement types: people smoke tobacco out of huge bongs all the time, don't worry 'bout it!

And the final Best 'o Craigslist ad for the month of October?

November '09 Adult Bus Pass - $50 (Kensington / Normal Heights)

Yup, get the jump on November with a soon-to-be-relevant Bus Pass. On this, my last blog post for the month of October, I'd like to take a quick look back and formulate a swift recapitulation of notable goings on for the month.

Such A Recapitulation, As Promised Not Ten Words Ago

  1. Made everybody mad at me somehow and then made them like me again through guile and charmingness.

  2. Managed to reference Sugar Ray, Pavement and Warren Zevon in blog titles, thereby paying homage (albeit weak) to some of the most important recording artists of the past fifty years. Next month: T-Rex and David Byrne! (Note: Reference to Bachman Turner Overdrive exempted as BTO is not of seminal importance in rock history)

  3. Mastered footnotes despite the blog server's merciless slaughtering of my HTML tags.1

  4. Planted seeds of list obsession in Readerblog Community.

  5. Broke into a third page of entries when observing the blog in its entirety.

  6. Became self-referential.

  7. Did my part to prove that craigslist is and will remain the single most important site on the whole Interwebs. Not Google, not Facebook, not myspace, eBay, Amazon, or Yahoo. Craigslist. If the most important function of the internet is communications, then craigslist is where that function is best exemplified. More things of real importance happen on craigslist in a single day than happen on other major internet hubs in a week.2

  8. Grew comfortable making wildly unsubstantiated claims.3

  9. Got to better know antigeekess, PistolPete, CuddleFish (nee Fish), SDaniels, Adam92102, nan, refriedgringo, et. al. that much better.

  10. Enjoyed virtual world company of same.


So, I guess that's it for October. It's been real, for sure. I'm certainly looking forward to November, and all the craigslist perusing, spelunking, surveying, scrying, spying, investigating, perceiving, discerning, analyzing, glancing, glaring, staring, gleaning, screening, and dreaming that the next month has to offer

Thanks again for reading--see you next month!

  1. Hint: it's a matter of cunning use of page break tags! Otherwise the numbers go all wonky and become non-referential.

  2. Wildly unsubstantiated claim.

  3. Provided they are a)highly rhetorical and/or b)justified as means to the end of Art

"N'erdowells." I thought this might be a five paragrapher on Roddy McDowell, and his failing screen career.


SDaniels Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:29 p.m.

"Became self-referential."

NEXT MONTH: Self-reflexive and performative. With working footnotes.


antigeekess Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:30 p.m.

"T-Rex? My! What a surprise! :)"

Heehee. ;)


SDaniels Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:32 p.m.

"Planted seeds of list obsession in Readerblog Community."

And list-obsession seeds were attempted to be planted in NHTBW, but did not take, apparently...

NEXT MONTH: Pike provides SD with a blog on Robert Smithson's list manias.


David Dodd Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:36 p.m.

Holy crap, you got a lot done in one month! Also, I am contemplating making myself a bong screensaver now. If I do, I shall offer it up on Craigslist with the obligatory footnote about it being only for use with tobacco products and certainly not with Windows 7.


CuddleFish Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:39 p.m.

I mean, how cool is it to have Pike to read on here??


antigeekess Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:41 p.m.

For you, Pikey:">T-Rex - Get It On

Or if you prefer live:">

Gotta love a dude who'll wear a t-shirt with his own face on it.

Surpassed only by Steve-O:">



CuddleFish Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:41 p.m.

Oh, and Pike, maybe you'll stop seeing so many enraging tramp costumes now. :P


SDaniels Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:46 p.m.

re: #6 and 9: Hahahahaahhhahaa!!! ! !!!!

Ok, under control now, but gawd, people you are funny. :)

Now: I need AG's frank and expert advice, unless anyone else has jurisdiction in this realm: Spurred on by GF's choking on a Snickers earlier, I followed suit and ate half a 100 Grand bar.

Now, does that mean that I consumed:

a). 50 grand? or b). 50 cents?

A valuable noprize to the cleverest response :)


SDaniels Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:50 p.m.

re: slip o' the key in #11: "CF" is being played by the part of "GF" this episode.


SDaniels Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:52 p.m.

c.) 500 calories.

AHHHHHHHH. That certainly sounds very clever. More like 175. You still get a noprize.


antigeekess Oct. 31, 2009 @ 11:57 p.m.

Possible screensavers for da gringo:

(The first one is in celebration of the season):">">">

Aaaand an instructional video, of course:">The Bong Guitar - Mike Edison's ChroniCaster

6,000,000 years of evolution, is it?


SDaniels Nov. 1, 2009 @ 1:30 a.m.

annnndd what did it cost SD to eat that 50 grand?!!! :(


CuddleFish Nov. 1, 2009 @ 1:42 a.m.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww Didn't sit right, hon? :(


SDaniels Nov. 1, 2009 @ 1:26 a.m.

I'm an idjit. Ate the rest of it! You just can't indulge in luscious caramel, krispies, and smooth milk chocolate when you're on a pea soup diet! Woooooe is me. Tell me a story!


SDaniels Nov. 1, 2009 @ 1:27 a.m.

Wow! Something bizarre just happened, Cuddle. My "woe is me 2" statement just turned up as #17, BEFORE my "woe is me 1." It is indeed a night of hauntings!


SDaniels Nov. 1, 2009 @ 1:28 a.m.

Wow, I'm entering the past, via Reader comment boxes. Yikes! Maybe now I can go back and NOT eat the 100 Grand...


CuddleFish Nov. 1, 2009 @ 3:01 a.m.

Well this is confusing, I read one of your adds, then there were more adds before that add -- what happened? Strange!


SDaniels Nov. 1, 2009 @ 3:03 a.m.

It's got to have something to do with the time change?


CuddleFish Nov. 1, 2009 @ 3:43 a.m.

That's what I thought too, time change. Earlier, I was having trouble posting that thread, even wrote to Support about it, then realized it may have been because of the time change. I think I first tried to post it sometime past midnight, as I recall.
