Housemate-seeking

Kate and I are looking for someone to share the place in Columbia Heights with. Here are some stats on the 25 people who have responded in the 24 hours since I posted the craigslist ad:

Men: 11
Women: 14

People from France: 2

People from Texas: 2

Vegetarians: 3 (one vegan)

Best line: "I'm a former camp counselor (well, once a camp counselor, always a camp counselor) who likes old soul music and bad party rap...but I promise I will never play either too loudly!"

The emails sometimes read like personal ads, but that's what you get when you ask people to talk about themselves, and they are reasonably helpful on the whole. On Sunday we're trying to meet the 15 or so who sound like they might work...we've invited 9 of them to come at the same time -- we'll see how crazy that gets!

Wow, that sounds like you could tape it and sell it to MTV.... Good luck with the craziness; hope at least one normal person turns up.
