Well, I guess I need to move to Edmonton now… It’s in Canada, at least, though it’s even colder than Montreal! This Craigslist ad from our neighbouring city (well, at least, a city in our country) has been making the rounds among the geeks of the world because it’s just too good not to share. You know my love of Star Trek: TNG, and particularly of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, so this is right up my alley.
It starts out sweet… The guy just wants to have (non-sexual) Star Trek: TNG roleplay with a few women. He extols the virtues of Picard over Kirk (obviously!) and explains that it’ll be strictly TNG. Fair enough! Then he (adorably) reveals that it’ll be taking place in an elaborate setup in his mother’s garage and she might bring by sandwiches… Delicious!
Then it gets a teensy bit sketchy… No compensation (no problem!) but he has a prescription pad (somehow) and he can give them whatever they need… Yikes! That’s a little less light-hearted and geeky. I guess that’s Craigslist for you! Apparently he got an overwhelming response and, don’t worry, nothing weird is going to happen… Allegedly. ;)
Would you roleplay TNG or some other show, either sexually or non-sexually? Have you ever? Who knows? I’ve been told I’d make a pretty great Dr. Beverly Crusher. But, perhaps more importantly… Would you do it through Craigslist?
