@Lily Rowan I love Wally Lamb's writing. The one he wrote a few years ago, The Hour I First Believed, is also really great, although it didn't wreck me in the same way. And apparently he teaches writing to women in prison, which is pretty rad.
@Lyesmith I still have my dogeared copies of all of James Herriot's books, and re-read them once a year or so. Animal stories forever!
@OhMarie I would gladly volunteer to be RR's chest hair fluffer.
@Ragged But Right YES YES YES. Gregory Peck is my perfect movie star husband. oof.
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll whoops, forgot to put my sarcasm spectacles on. my bad. carry on.
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll yeah, I've used craigslist to buy chairs AND get laid. multiple times. And guess what? I didn't get bedbugs OR get raped. (or killed, as I'm not writing this from the afterlife) As rh&c says, being smart about it and using General Internet Safety Precautions applies, just as it does to OKCupid or any other dating website. And out of all my online dating experiences (of which I've done off and on for 6 years) Craigslist has been the most positive.
@nyikint YES. YES. YES. Not to mention, in LOTR they showed Bilbo stumbling upon it blindly and picking it up!? WTF, Peter Jackson, that was your movie. You should remember things like this.
@TheBelleWitch Ugh, Guy of Gisborne, get in my pants! And yes, that is an objectively terrible show that I could not. stop. watching.
I like living in a world where Dancing Tacos exist.
