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.

You came into Idaho pizza company … you were a beautiful Hispanic woman wearing a head band and leggings.. you were on your phone the whole time.. we made eye contact a lot and smiled at each other when I left.. I should have asked for your number, if you are single I would like to get to know you

I kept running into you all night and thought this girl is so hot and beautiful. You were wearing a white top with a zebra print skirt and some high-top converse. You showed up in a lot of my videos and photos. I would love to meet you if possible.

**** Dear “Long shot” and “Emo night,”
I suspect you will find your headband, leggings, and zebra print skirt-wearing soul mates here…
The portal to all things 80s.

Hi, I miss spending time with you around Fred Meyer on Chinden. You drive a white van. I hope you see this. Hit me up k?

We drove next to one another this morning. I feel like you either knew me or were interested in me. Would love to chat and see where it goes.

**** Dear “White Van” and “Girl In Van,”
What the fuck is the matter with you two??? Didn’t anyone ever teach you about stranger danger???

xxx ” White Van Trying To Lure Children Into Vehicle…”
xxx “Report suspicious white van rouses fear… Two cousins out on the town Saturday night say they witnessed an attempted kidnapping…”
xxx “Police are warning residents after receiving a report of a man who approached children Saturday morning and asked them to get inside his vehicle. Officers checked the surrounding area and found a video feed from a neighbor that showed a white cargo van…”

Well, and then there’s this guy.

Wow!!! This is a longshot and my very first time posting on hear but I had to compliment you for a job well done. I came in with a bunch of coins to depositI I would have given it to you instead just for the smile you gave me It turned me on! You have a Russian accent (forgive me if wrong on that) that is sexy as anything ive ever seen.You had me so excited i could hardly count coins you gave me a dime roll I would love to talk to you over coffee or your choice id be happy with a text you should be on the cover of playboy or somthing your that hot i also deposited a money order tell me how much it was with the 49 dollars in change i had to deposit thank you made my day maybe my whole life thank you

****Dear Wells Fargo,
1st, stop taking those little blue pills and smoking crack before you do your banking.
2nd, her Russian accent was as sexy as anything you’ve seen?? You can see a fucking accent??
3rd, I talked to her, she’s a lesbian and we have a date on Friday. That’s what you get for being a creeper.

I’ve been battling a two-day headache and am currently drinking a caffeine-loaded energy drink to get rid of it and since it’s 9:30pm it looks like I’ll be up all night but I’ll be headache free so go me!

I’m still working on Halloween stuff. Hopefully, I’ll have a couple of things to show tomorrow.

I’ve been totally wrapped up in the Queen’s passing… And yes, I’ve cried. I love the real, working Royals. We grew up knowing aaaallll about them. My mom’s genealogy connects us to the Royals and I can’t remember a time when they weren’t a topic of conversation daily in our house. To be honest, we heard about them so much I can remember my teenage self asking my mom, “They didn’t leave us any of their crown jewels or a castle. Why do you care??” I get it now… Sorry, mom.

Our weather is finally behaving like fall is on the way, in fact, next week it’s in the 70’s all week and I am totally digging that. Now, the rest of the year can slow down! I have so much to do and so many plans. My fall and winter are mapped out like some people map out their summer vacations. This time of year is my summer vacation.

Did you all have a good weekend??
What’s on tap for your week ahead?
Anybody else glued to the news of Queen Elizabeth’s passing? It’s so weird saying King Charles now but I love that William and Catherine are now the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Well, another late post. I hope you’re all having a great Monday and a great start to the new week. I’ve got a long night ahead so I’m jumping off here and getting a few things done. Don’t forget to leave some comment luv.

  1. Those crazy Craigslist messages! 😀 Wells Fargo was the best one – what a moron! We are pretty wrapped up in the Queen’s death too. She was Canada’s figurehead, and most of us respected and admired her. The monarchy, not so much. “King Charles” is hard to get used to, but so far, he’s holding up well. How cool to have the royals as a family connection! May your headache soon disappear. Have a good night.


    1. Craigslist never fails. It’s like a train wreck you don’t want to look but you do! – I am still trying to get a grip on the Queen being gone and King Charles is going to take a bit of time to think of it as normal, ya’ know? It is cool to have royal ancestry. I wish I had paid attention more. Fortunately, my mom got all of the info put into books, and to think she did the majority of it without computer databases. She started when she was in her 20s!

  2. Your missed connections posts are the best!!! Omg, I live for the crap people post on NextDoor now! Sooo many folks with nothing to do, posting warnings about a suspicious van, etc. I just saw one where they posted their doorbell cam video of someone turning around in their driveway! Lol, get a life!

    I also have a headache because I got my first shingles vaccine yesterday. I’m tired of vaccines that make me feel like sh*t the next day. Hope you’re feeling better now! XO

    1. Hahaha! I’m feeling much better and thank you but having those words of love right there out in the open for all to see helps A LOT! – I had NextDoor and then I deleted it because I kept seeing the same cats, dogs, and rose gardens every single day! But… Since you mentioned it I tried to get back on NextDoor and they won’t let me. Fuckers. I don’t know why but I thought those might be fun to blog about too. I’ll try again. Lol. I LOVE THE DOORBELL CAMS!!! Yes, the majority of them really do need to get a life! I like to watch all of the ways the homeowners dupe the porch pirates at the holidays! – I hope you’re feeling better!! ❤


  3. Love the ads. I would never go this route to find a date.

    Our heatwave is over and we’re happy about that. I wore a jacket this morning on our walk because it was cold. I loved it.

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

  4. I wonder if any of those “missed connections” ever connect. It sounds like these people read way more into their interactions than the other person intended.

    1. Omg. Right??? There was an ad for one of the cashiers where I shop so of course, I had to tell her about it! She had no clue and she thought it was creepy and had no idea who the guy was! And I totally agree. It’s like their mailman smiles at them and now they’re planning a wedding!


  5. I’ve missed your “missed connections” – they’re so hilariously stupid!
    I like that message from The Queen at the bottom, did she really say that? I haven’t been glued to the all day news, but I have been watching bits of the evening news and the funeral processions. I never knew her, but always liked her and will miss her.

    1. Thank you, and yes those ads are hilariously stupid, or at least the people writing them are! – I did research that quote a bit and apparently she did say it. I watch the Royal News on YouTube and I catch up on what I miss. One of my favorite shows on YouTube is your Sunrise 7 show. I watch that a lot. 🙂
