    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I just went back and seen the add for a "priced at $1500. but will take $600 singer" I am sorry for my fellow wisconsinites. We have our first really cold weather and snow here and I think their brains froze!

    I'd take David Bowie over, say Jack Black... Back in '86 I had a pre-teen crush on David Bowie something fierce after his role in "Labyrinth"... yup. I just dated myself.

    LOL, my DD saw that movie for the first time this year and she decided that even with the "weird hair" she would be "all over that" I had to shatter her dreams by showing her a current pic.... Still not bad looking but there certainly is mileage...

    That reminds me of those "priceless" commercials. I bet the look on DD's face was priceless when she saw the current pic!

    I would challenge most people to come up with any 30+ year old who looks better 27 years later. Hard living or not. My latest "girl crush" is Steven Tyler who's probably lived way harder than David Bowie ever did.

    I think this is all my musician roots coming out though. Most of these people get points just for surviving to their 60s.

    "Cushioned" is right. I don't think even a would be princess could feel a pea under all that.

    I disagree. Have you seen 73 year old Raquel Welch lately??? WOW! I always had a thing for her. ... Still do!

    Yes, she's a very good looking gal, but I wonder what she looks like without all that makeup. The pic I googled had she in leopard print. I dare say she doesn't look "better" than she did in her mid 40s though.

    Could be, or she could just be really good at taking care of herself, and lucky.
    There are some of those in Hollywood, right?

    It's not that. It's that I saw you as looking like a man. A very good looking man, but a man nonetheless.

    It's a good look... raises the look of the eyebrows and area around the eyes naturally....


    OK, here are today's entries:
    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-ViewAd?AdId=534060436 - "Antique Treadle Sewing Machine - New enough that parts are still available for this treadle machine which sets it apart from the others. " - Someone needs to look up the definition of "Antique"....

    http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...AdIdZ551939781 - I don't know, for some reason this one passes giggles to offensive, but I can't fully put my finger on why. Maybe it's the highest bid takes it... maybe it's the I'll take trades as long as they're worth twice what the machine is worth, The " I really don't want to accept too many calls or answer too many questions. ", The "I don't know what it's worth. If you can tell me what you think it's worth I would appreciate it."

    Really loved him publishing his full address, postal code and description of the house though. I'm so tempted to go spray paint "You might be smoking something illegal... " on his car...

    Also loved the "PICKUP TIME - ANY time you want. Seriously. ANY time. Come ANY time 8 am morning to 10 pm in the evening. Whatever works for YOU. NO appointment needed." Anytime? I'll be there at 2am. Without prior notice.

    "When to call – Serious calls only please. Just call when you have the cash and are ready to come down and view the item. I’m very busy and don’t want to receive too many calls." - I thought I didn't have to call... it says no appointment needed... If I was that busy, I'd want to schedule with people so I knew I wouldn't be getting drop-ins at all times of the day and night....

    You know what? Maybe I do know what it was that crossed the line to offensive.

    "Pickup options - Bring a car. I can help you lift it in. Or just carry on the #9 or #51 bus (the stop is next to my house). The Mckernan/Belgravia train station is about 1 kilometre from my house too. Or just walk it away. One person can easily lift it."
    yup just plop that puppy on top of your head and race for that train....

    I know it might have seemed off-topic except that I think raised eyebrows definitely fit in here!!

    It's a shame I'm not in the area. Could keep the make-up on, go to his house and offer him gold and jewels to stay the hell away from me. Hope I never meet that person!!

    I laughed pretty hard at the price and wording of the ad, then looked at the pics of *two completely different machines*! I did write and tell him about the two different machines.
