My Arch Nemesis

Wow! This post was supposed to be about Wal-Mart. However, I googled the words "My arch nemesis" trying to find a fun picture to include in my post when one of the search results caught my eye. My search brought up this lovely jewel-an ad from craigslist (featured in the best of craigslist).

I've been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I'm 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing. I feel like I'm old before my time. I need to inject some excitement into my daily routine through my arm before its too late. I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I'm willing to pay $350 up front for you services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when Im running to catch the BART and occasionaly whisper in my ear, "Ahha, we meet again". That kind of thing. Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me. You need to have an evil streak and be blessed with innate guile and cunning. You should also be adept at inconsicuous pursuit. Evil laugh preferred. Send me a photo and a brief explanation why you would be a good nemesis. British accent preferred.

I have no words to even begin to comment. It's funny, but at the same time it is really creepy. Although, being a professional arch nemesis would be a rather cool job. In these hard economic times, maybe it is worth a shot. It would look great on a resume! :)

P.S.-Don't forget about my giveaway! Enter here!
