Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

I'm worried that I'm addicted to Craigslist. I've been spending all of my free time in search of furniture that I don't actually need. Is it possible to be addicted to Craigslist and, if so, how do I get help?

Best, Michelle

P.S. Do you by any chance have a gently-used oak dresser?

does stand,
I shall discover all: I'll bring thee word
Straight, how 'tis like to go." (Antony and Cleopatra 4.12.2-5)


So, yes you do have a dresser, but it's pine and not oak? That's fine. What I'm really interested in is finding a black rolltop desk and a bike rack. Either of those would be great.

Sure, that color printer and Ikea computer desk sound perfect. I've been wanting those things for a long time. And that's a totally fair price.

I'm assuming that this is cash and carry. Do you think that you could help my husband get the desk into our hatchback?

  1. If you reread that A&C quote carefully, I think you'll find that not only is it pine, you'll have to assemble it yourself!
