I have a crush on Robert Pattinson. Not one of those screaming teenage crushes, obviously. He's only a few years older than my oldest stepson. No, it's a combination of his being a talented, handsome guy with a British accent who makes me remember when I was a teenager with crushes, (but I was much too cool to scream, thank-you very much!), and he brings out the romantic in me -- I wish those kids, (meaning Rob and Kristen for those of you not up on your celebrity gossip) could find a way to make it work, because they seemed so happy together, and miserable apart.
But the thing that cemented the crush was I saw him on Jimmy Kimmel the other night. And he had a confession of his own.
He's addicted to Craigslist!
How can you not have a crush on a rich movie star who buys stuff on Craigslist?
So, you see fellow Craigslisters? It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor; famous, not famous, the Craigslist habit is totally egalitarian. Once you find your first great bargain, you can't stop.
Just a warning. My own little Public Service Announcement.
And speaking of famous .... errrr .... things .... last year I did a post about these chairs I found on Craigslist for $30 each. The guy I bought them from told me that "famous butts" had probably sat in them, possibly President Eisenhower. So I titled my post about them "Famous Butts ... Possibly."
Fast forward to the last couple of weeks, and I've been finding a strange URL showing up as a referring site in my stats. I clicked on it to see what it was, and let's just say it is not a PG, or even a R-rated site.
I've been thinking there was some kind of hacking going on. But today I finally figured it out when I looked closer at my numbers for post pageviews and Google key word searches.
The key words "famous butts" and my post about the chairs correlate with the referrals from the X-rated site! So somehow they're all tied together.
I've got to laugh. I mean really, can you imagine the disappointment of some weirdo trying to find pictures of famous people's naked posteriors only to be linked to my post about chairs I found on Craigslist??!!
Anyway, hope you have a great weekend. I'm working on some things to show you next week!
