Just to reinforce the "Live Journal" flavor of this weblog...I have to recount a Craig's List story. I was recently looking for an apartment to rent, and I was playing email/phone tag with a guy "Zeke" who was subletting his extra room. When I was looking at a different place "Zeke" called me, and the guy whose place I was looking at told me that he worked with the same "Zeke" (he heard me say his name) Anyway, there were time issues with the second place I visited, so I was late at my third place, and when I called "Zeke" to postpone, he was like, "OK, I'll do something else." Finally make it to the third place, and find out that 30 minutes before I showed up "Zeke" (who I was supposed to be possibly subletting from) was himself interviewing to sublet with these same people who I was now interviewing with!!! I call "Zeke" and told him what was down, that I knew his game, and he told me that when he heard that someone was looking at the third place, but was late, he wondered if it was me, because he knew my previous place had pushed my schedule back. Anyway....
