Missed Connection Monday is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section on Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it – Your local serial killer hunting ground.

The first sentences of these Craigslist “love notes” are, I’m sure, one of the many, many reasons these freaks will be making their love connection at home – alone.
In the words of Pink…

“To the deathly looking girl at Mulls almost every night…”
**** Dear “I think your name is…”
I think your name is necrophiliac. Freak.
PS – Telling a girl she looks deathly is the equivalent of saying, wow, your dick is the size of a fucking Tic Tac.
(And if Yoko Ono had married Sony Bono her name would’ve been Yoko Ono Bono!)

“You came to our family garage sale last weekend and bought 4 books and a letterboard.”
**** Dear Memorial Weekend Garage Sale…
A few words of advice.

And altho this last one is posted in the “missed connection” section I’m pretty sure he meant to put it in the “help wanted” section.

“Needs some attention to my tools tonight. Come over an clean it up. Let me know if interested.”
*** Dear Crankshaft,
You’re disgusting. Obviously, you’re confused but I can see how the “Missed Connection” section sounds so much like the “I’m a fucking loser that has to pay women to have sex with me” section.  

PS – Maybe you should Google this.

How was everybody’s weekend? Mine felt like it crawled along at a snail’s pace and I was totally okay with that. I got lots done. I missed posting on Friday because we were having repeated power surges so I just shut everything down and caught up on some reading.

Our temps finally cooled down enough so I could get some plants to the patio. I have to be very selective because the patio gets full scorching sun and aside from cactus I have no idea what might survive out there all day. If you guys have any ideas please do share. 

Also, I have a couple of spider plants and I almost killed one. Totally bummed. I’ve always had success with spider plants but this one is just giving me issues. Again, if any of you have any tips they would be much appreciated.

Well, here we are into the 2nd week of June… You guys know we’re only 6 months away from Christmas, right? I’m so excited! 
I’m sure most of you feel like this tho. 
It’s okay. I’ve got enough Christmas spirit for all of you. 
Today I’ll be working on Christmas quilts with this cool fabric.
Christmas gnomes!

What’s your day looking like?? Share the crazy!

  1. So many losers and so little time to tell them where to go. Just saying.

    We stayed home this weekend and enjoyed the quiet. The next two weekends we’ll be boating.

    I can give no advice on growing plants. None. If you want my expertise on killing them I can’t help you there either, but I can pull that one off.

    No on Christmas. Not ready for that one bit.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Karen. Love you bunches. ♥


    1. Hahaha. True enough on those losers. So happy you’ll be boating. I’m still trying to salvage my plant. I rarely kill them! I will not be defeated! Lol. Yeah it is a bit early for Christmas but I’ve got lots of sewing to do! 🙂 Love you!

  2. Have you tried plumeria? I don’t know how much sun they can tolerate, but I do know they prefer full sun. I am the opposite of a gardener so do some research first. But, my father has a bunch that he keeps out by the pool, and they seem to thrive.


    1. I had not tried plumeria because I have never heard of it but I will be going out this week in search of some at our local nurseries. They really are a beautiful plant and seem fairly easy to tend to. I’ll let you know how it goes. Thank you so much, Liz.


  3. I have missed your Missed Connections posts SO much! You are hilarious! In defense of Mr. Necro, maybe the girl is goth and she’d take the deathly comment as a compliment?? It takes all kinds. And omg on Crankshaft. That is just disturbing! You wish you could find his mother and show her his posts. Good grief!

    Have a great week! But keep your Christmas!


    1. “Have a great week but keep your Christmas!” Hahahahaha! Sung to the tune of Pink’s You and Your Hand Tonight… Hahahahaha! I agree Mr. Necro may have been giving a compliment but chances are he’s really just a freak. – I may watch too many crime documentaries. – The Crankshaft guy just grossed me out… I envisioned a big, fat, hairy truck driver. Just so gross.


    1. Mimi, I just wish I could wave a magic wand and have people doing for you. You work so hard all the time. You deserve a life of rest and relaxation. 🙂 – I think the fabric is fabulous too. Thank you!


  4. I am so glad to be out of the dating world (44 years) I can’t imagine how hard it would be. Sketchy people abound! So glad to see your blog again!
