More Craigslist Wierdness


Finding a rental share in Santa Cruz is weird. Here's a sample from today's listings:

"Housemate(s) wanted for shared kink-friendly, queer-friendly, pansexual adult household, Capitola Area (near Santa Cruz). Shared space: "Leather" living room for play and relaxation." (Pic above is from this listing)

"We are nine people (six adults, three children) ages 4, 6, 9, 20, 28, 38, 39, 40, 59. Our combined interests include writing, cooking, organic gardening, composting, tree-climbing, art, kayaking, cycling, acoustic guitar, computers, psychology, nonviolence, aikido, singing...... "

"We prefer would someone under 30, but it is not end all."

"Your room would be a garage. "

"Problems with the room are: you share space with the washer/dryer (though the laundry area is sectioned off from the room by a huge curtain... and we are very careful not to do laundry when it will disturb you), and there are no windows"

"Xavier is 23-ish (he wasn't here for me to ask, but I think he's 23/24), a recent graduate of UCSC, works as an assistant director and he is a total carnivore"

"and I am not at all 420 friendly so please if that is your deal, you would not be the best fit. "

"Don't fret about poop and fur and what not. We're very tidy"

"within walking distance of downtown and near bus routes. You'll never have to drive drunk again"

his room right now is much smaller than a garage so that one looks good

and the washer/dryer one you could probably negotiate some fees from the laundry, like they give you $1.50 per load, maybe $5.00 if you are asleep

I can picture sputnik now, in the dirt area on the other side of VB's house with laundry hanging from the trees.

holy shit the houseshare listings for SC are funny, how about "Couple of times a week, I like to get out and usually come home with a monster taco and egg roll at the end of the night. I watch a lot of movies, drink a lot of coffee , and when I cook I’m usually gesturing with a glass of wine. I rock socks." ... sounds like a winner .... why not just set up a yurt among the trees ... it would be the happy SC thing to do.
