Dear Craigslist:

dear craigslist:

this weekend marks my 6th anniversary of living in portland, and once again i availed myself of your services to great success. so...just a note to let you know how much you've helped me over the past 6 years. over time, i have you to thank for:
  • a lightly-used dresser
  • a washer & dryer for our then-new house when we had practically NO cash to spare but really really needed to do our laundry
  • a short stint living in a fabulous house in NW portland with a bedroom-balcony great view of the sunrise over the Fremont bridge, my own gorgeous bathroom with beautiful restored clawfoot tub, and forest park at my back for a mere $350/month. although i eventually got booted out of the house for reasons that remain unclear, it was an awesome 6 months of living experience
  • our puppy, lucy
  • getting rid of a dining room table & chairs, boxspring, old dishes, and countless other items we didn't want to keep when we moved
  • most recently, the most fabulous practically-new red Dirt Devil vacuum that kicks ass on our dirty hardwood floors (see puppy, above) for a mere $60
  • guitar lessons
  • and many, many more things
So thank you CL, for your many blessings. Life just wouldn't be the same without you.
