Procrastination Station, Stop #34 - Craigslist

Inspired by my discovery of the Adult Coloring Club (the non-competitive one) I decided to post some of the other wonderful activities there are to be found when looking around Craigslist. I’m currently on a deadline for a writing project. That is the explanation for why I’m instead perusing Craigslist. I’ve already done everything else I could possibly do (besides write of course) so now I’m moving on to Craigslist.

baton twirlers!

looking to (re)connect with other baton twirlers that used to twirl competitively. I mostly want to practice my rolls and learn some new ones! Maybe we can teach each other a thing or two. This is for Sacramento and for twirlers who are 18 or older or have twirled baton competively.


This just cracks me up. But the weird thing is I’ve actually seen a whole group of baton twirlers at the park on more than one occasion. A big group too. Just twirling away. There were jugglers there too. They entertained me so. But this is still a random ass posting. I love that they are specifying that the twirlers need to be 18 years or older. I imagine a man hanging out with kids asking them to twirl his baton might not go over so well.

French Conversation Group

I'm looking for people in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area who want to get together and practice speaking French! I'm moving to a french speaking country in a couple of months and need to brush up on my conversational skills. Email me if you are interested, and we can organize something.



This just seems funny to me because you are posting to have people get together with you and just talk. I can’t imagine what they would talk about. I guess it wouldn’t matter, as long as it was French, but still. I just imagine the people getting together and then just kinda looking at each other blankly, with absolutely nothing to say to each other, in French or any other language.

Doesn’t the phrase “Self-Help Group” seem sort of contradictory? You’re either getting help from a group or you’re getting help from yourself. You can’t have it both ways. Also, I love that the Scientologists are trying to get people off of Craigslist. Man, if that ain’t a religion worth looking into I just don’t know what is. And the Questions. They are so specific and really narrow down the people who could respond. And by narrow down I mean, keep it as wide open as possible to get as many people as possible to sign up for their crazy pod-tastic religion.

Nude Yoga Monday & Wednesday Evenings for Men

If you've ever thought about trying a yoga class but were looking for one that was more focused on men, then this might be the class for you.

We're a fun group of guys that enjoy being nude, practicing yoga and developing a sense of community.

Classes are Monday and Wednesday evenings.

For all of the details, please e-mail us.



There are just too many things to comment on here. “We're a fun group of guys that enjoy being nude, practicing yoga and developing a sense of community.” I think that they will be developing something, I do not know if it’s a sense of community. Also, have you ever done yoga? Have you ever thought while doing yoga, “Geez, you know what would make this weird contortion of my body even MORE enjoyable? If I were naked. Yes. And if everyone around me were naked too. Because yoga is all about being zen-like and nothing would make me more zen than seeing that dude across from me in a naked downward dog.”

I know a blogger who teaches this class in NY. Can't really get the allure of it. Do the undergarments get in the way THAT much?

excellent use of procrastination skills. cruising craig's list and finding ways to tease us that we all don't live in the sac area and therefore will miss out on all the nude french twirling and such.

Craigslist scares me. Or really, people scare me and craigslist just allows them to be weird and find other weirdos.

The last time I did yoga in a group, the man infront of me let a huge one rip. It was so loud and so smelly, I think it even startled the instructor. I can only imagine the horror of this experience in the nude. Hmmm....I think I'll stick to running where I only have to bare the occasional too short shorts.

HA HA HA! So funny. I need to calm down so my coworkers don't see me giggling.
