Thread: Getting a roommate

  1. #1

    Getting a roommate

    From Tuesday night I will have a roommate living in my apartment until at least Christmas.

    Could be weird. Apart from 10 years of marriage (12 living together) and visiting friends, I've never actually lived with anyone but my parents. Lived on my own in journalism college.

    She's a good friend (just a friend) and has given up her job to complete a Masters Degree to eventually become a zoologist. The reason she's moving in is that she was heading off to the jungle on a research field trip, it all got cancelled and she'd already given up her apartment.

    I quite like change, I'm sure it'll be fun. She went to Cambridge University, is ridiculously intelligent, terribly opinionated, a sci-fi geek (Steven would love her), animal encyclopedia, amateur actress/singer, loves rubbish action movies, fitness freak who can drink like a fish.

    We've organised a moving in party for the 17th. Any excuse.

    Sounds like a good time, interesting conversation, good partys, and a good stretch of knowledge to be enjoyed. Just don't speed off a curb in front of her.

    Sounds great! Make sure the cap gets back on the toothpaste, and brush up on your semicolons. (We like men who have mastered their semicolons.) And please share her singing with us if she'll let you,

    So your new roomie is an unemployed, hard drinking, opinionated scholar pursuing a dead end degree? Bet she's a looker!

    You took that as a bad thing?

    ETA - I guess the question of her looks has been answered.
