As reported in the Globe and Mail, “Nearly four years after Joel Allen first decided to build a sleek, wooden tree house hidden away on Crown land in a forest near Whistler, the carpenter is taking it down. Within the next week, Mr. Allen will list the dismantled parts of the tree house, called the HemLoft, on Craigslist – the very site where he acquired most of his supplies.

Granted some of us are a little out of shape, but we’re limbering up, tracking down our running shoes, and pounding carbs.

We hope to see some of you along the way (probably from the rear).

From the Bay to Breakers press release:

(April 1, 2013) Bay to Breakers, one of the world’s largest and longest running footraces, today announced San Francisco based craigslist as presenting sponsor. This partnership brings together two Bay Area classics – San Francisco born and bred craigslist, now the world’s leading classified ad service, and Bay to Breakers, the legendary 102-year-old San Francisco running race

“We’re tickled pink to sponsor Bay to Breakers,” said craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster. “A fellow San Francisco institution, this storied footrace celebrates the unique character of our colorful city, drawing fans and participants from around the world.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Bay to Breakers to partner with one of the world’s most visited websites and another San Francisco original, craigslist,” said Bay to Breakers Race Director Angela Fang. “We are thrilled to add them as presenting sponsor. As the event moves into its second century, we can’t imagine a better addition to the Bay to Breakers community.”

As reported in New York Magazine:

Dave and Mike had a problem: The bros (in every sense of the word) have been told that they must bring dates to their cousin’s upcoming wedding in order to prevent them from “harassing” the bride’s friends all night.

Asked how their family is going to react to the stunt, one brother [said]: “Out of boredom I tried to convince my dad at Christmas that I’d gone gay now because the lifestyle just suits me better. He was very confused and extremely unamused. I’d imagine he’ll have the same response to this once we just keep repeating, ‘We’ve gone viral, pop.'”

Pig-owning lesbian masseuse seeks roommate

January 30, 2013 by

As reported in Time Out Chicago, check out the pigs in these digs:

Franklin, the oldest, will bully you—they are herd animals and while I am ultimately alpha, he feels the need to climb the hierarchy. If you live here, logically you are in his herd, therefore he will challenge you every so often to establish who is where in the hierarchy. He can also be very sweet and cuddle with you on the couch while you watch your favorite show.

October 18, 2012 by

In a throwback to the roaring 20s, Maneesh Sethi recruited a slapper off CL to give him a hand in staying on task, and saw his productivity quadrupule.

Said Sethi, “How could I leverage Craigslist to improve my efficiency. To me, the answer was obvious: I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face everytime I used Facebook.”

For a mere $8/hr, can you afford not join him in this arms race?
