i commented on joining the gym with someone a couple of days ago. now i can't find the post. this could be due to sleepiness, but i have read backwards and forwards a couple of times.
gym person, i need to email you, so please comment. thanks.
The two of us (Benjamin and Becca) are searching for a wonderful roommate (read: responsible, creative, non-smoker, mid-20s to early 30s, please. non-gender specific.) to join our home here on N Alberta. Only a few minutes walk from nearly everything that Alberta, Killingsworth, Mississippi, Albina, etc. have to offer, we're at a certain comfortable distance from the main drag that even the traffic noise doesn't reach us. Well-kept and decorated (plan to add to that, as well), the house has great light and warm, spacious rooms with lush plants in many a corner and shelf that make it a great space to come home to and relax. With a programmable thermostat, we keep the heating bill quite affordable, as with the other utilities. Not only that, but it also sports a full-length covered porch, fenced back yard and washer & dryer in the basement, so how can one go wrong?
I am a chef at a local restaurant (formerly an elementary-school teacher, among other things), and Becca works for a non-profit program here in Portland. As far as our days off are concerned, we have quite the similar pastimes: mucking about outdoors, cinema and theater, hunting down new venues, boardgame-nights, home-cooked meals with friends and hosting the occasional small themed cocktail party, to name only a few. The house also comes equipped with two perfect cats (one middle-aged lady and the other girl barely out of kittendom), and thusly more cats or dogs are not really an option for us.
and...although they'd never know I'd nearly forgotten to mention them, I also have three good luck charms in the form of chinese goldfish that brighten a 30-gallon tank here.
Drop us a line to schedule a meetup, and we'll be sure to get back to you asap!
