"i'll post better images soon."



Oh good. I was looking for a house where I could... make wontons?

Am I the only one who thinks that this is really a personal ad disguised as a "for rent" ad? Why else would a guy post a photo of himself cooking, and a long description of the cabin that features details about his personal life unless he was hoping for a companion in addition to a tenant??

Interesting approach.

His name is Wally, does that have the same meaning in the US as it does in the UK? I'd neither date nor rent from a wally

I was thinking personal ad too. Cheaper than eHarmony I suppose.

Wally needs to get himself a spellcheck. The little comments about cats and dogs ok creep me out with the purr and woof- I agree with the companion search theory.

Personal add or "for rent" add, it's weird either way. And why a picture of the wontons when there are 3 lines about flowers and the garden? At least show us that.

Meg said...

Well, at first I thought he was rolling a joint. Now THAT would have been interesting (and would have explained his typos and the intent to post better pictures later. And the Purr and the Woof comments. And, well, everything!)

Wally does not have any meaning in Canada whatsoever (other than "short for Walter"); what does it mean in the UK?

And is he making perogies (wontons - pfft) in the living room because every surface in the kitchen is covered in stuff?

The "purr" and "woof" are standard for any rental-housing advertisement on craigslist to indicate that the specified type(s) of animal(s) is/are okay. I think they're ticky-boxes when you take out the ad. Nothing creepy involved.

But the ad is kinda weird.

And no, "Wally" doesn't mean anything in the US other than "short for 'Walter.'"

In the UK, Wally essentially means idiot. The purrs and woofs are craiglist defaults, so not down to him, but an odd ad even so.

I am intrigued by the idea of all those potatoes coming back on their own - I visualise a little army of them, carrying suitcases...

I'm with Charlene...I think he's making perogies...

Alex said...

I'm putting my bet on dumplings/potstickers. Mmmmmm.

Karen said...

Totally thought that Wally was rolling lots and lots of joints. Yeah, wontons make a lot more sense. Hmmm, or could they be "magic" wontons? Far out Wally ...

Wally should take a cue from those plastic-wrap bed fans. Just think how much more counter surface he'd have for cooking.

It's gyoza, people. Please.

Lynn said...

totally a personal ad...he actual mentions his other 2 properties...nobody needs to know where he spends his time...all he needed to say was it's not owner occupied...
and I too thought he was rolling a joint...

Marytoo said...

Oh, rats! Another post gone before I got to see it.
