        If I’ve said it once…I’ve said it, at least twice now: the internet is a RESOURCE. I keep thinking someone who would use said resource to sell something, might also have the ability to look up some information about that item. You know, like how much to ask for it, how many others are for sale…how to spell the name of the item. But I am shown again how much I overestimate the Craiglist user.

          And yet one must assume that at least some of these listings are effective in that someone actually responds to the add.
          And isn’t bothered by or aware of the spelling issues.

          *climbs on soapbox*

          As long as we (in the general sense) accept news anchors and talk show hosts and interviewers who butcher the language with “him and me” “me and my friend” “her and him” etc. the language will continue to fall apart.

    I’d love the Wall Clock, but I’m worried about what it might become after the Provisional period is over. I mean, what if Classical Greek is next? That would *totally* clash with my ammoir and my otumon.

      Time and time again I found myself SURROUNDED by the French. It was frustrating. Cigarette smoke everywhere. Talks about art. Speaking in French. Berets… I couldn’t take it anymore! But now, thanks to French Prevention, that’s all behind me. The day the furniture arrived was one of the best in recent memory. They took one look at my beautiful new living room set and took off running. Thank you, French Prevention. You’ve made my life as an American even better!!

    “Providential dresser and end table set”? Really? So…you wished for the set, and it appeared? Or was there an altar of some kind involved? The sacrifice of a black rooster in a white chalk circle? Was it brought to your doorstep by some unnamed and unseen emissary of the Lord?

    No?

    Deus ex carpentera, then? Was it…immaculate carpentry?

    If the answer to any of those is yes, I can totally see why there’s no price listed. Only the right buyers will make their way to you. Or you’ll wake up one morning and it’ll have vanished. Providence brought it to you, providence will take care of getting rid of it, right?

        It depends on whether they have bad knees or not. If they do, they’ll definitely try to “cushion” the blow and then use their “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” necklace alarm to call for help.

      “Dental dam” always sounds to me like something you put in your mouth, not something you put on something else to protect your mouth. My father worked on a damn dam, and it was made of about fifty kabillion tons of concrete. The idea of that plus my mouth (or someone else’s bits) is a total mood kill. For me, anyway. I’m sure there’s rule 34 concrete somewhere.

      No, but there was a Chinese Chippendale period, which you just KNOW is rendered on CL as “Chinese Chip n Dale.” Regular Chippendale (not to be confused with Chippendales dancers, though I am sure many do) is probably also rendered as “Chip and Dale” furniture, thereby causing confusion to people who just want Disney collectibles and just find all of this old boring furniture.
