If you ever want a comic glance at the dark underbelly of the LA dating scene, check out the LA Craiglist Personals - always a boundless source of entertainment. The following ad, for instance, is hilarious because I'm more than 91 percent sure the female who wrote it just finished watching Pretty Woman on HBO at 2 a.m. and figured she'd use her wiles on the Internet to serendipitously meet a Richard Gere-like playboy and undergo a magical transformation of sorts from another wannabe to a Julie Roberts-ish megastar.

"Would you like to take a young, innocent, naive newcomer and turn her into a rich Bev Hills lady and a star? I'll give you complete power. I've got good starting material for you to work with..I have a beautiful face, an average body (needs a bit of work to be perfect but good bone structure, but I've already started to increase excersise) have experience (small parts and bits n pieces) in film/TV and theatre, but I have an Amazing one-of-a-kind outgoing, friendly and bubbly personality that you don't see too often round here. I'm not just a pretty face - I can pull this off but i just need some monetary help and someone to guide me.
