I'm still reading the housing classifieds, partly because if I come across a better place with a female roommate before next week before next week I may still check it out (though probably not, I like the place I found). But also for the sheer entertainment value. What can I say? Queens has character. Tonight's winner:

I'm a professional puppeteer and work largely out of the back room of the apartment. Looking for a neat, responsible, 420 and Poly friendly roommate who won't mind the occasional Dr.Who/StarTrek/Cosmos binge watching session in the living room or weird puppets left on the couch from time to time.


To be completely honest, the marijuana aspect is probably the bigger roadblock. I grew up with bad respiratory problems (Near-constant bronchitis) and so my parents were hyper-vigilant about second-hand smoke, and I'm not 100% sure but I've always heard marijuana smoke has the same problems.

Brooklyn, oddly, hasn't had so many problems, but there was the ad last night offering up a hallway for rent. To be fair, I'm sure it was in a trendy neighborhood.

The Bronx has its own problems, but hardly the kind of things that make it into housing ads. As for Manhattan?



I've heard tell of a fifth borough, but if there's any real way of getting to and from it on a regular basis, I'm yet to discover it.

The guy you're looking at sounds okay, except for the smoking.

Second-hand dope smoke gives me a raging headache, so I avoid it as much as tobacco smoke. Also, even second-hand, the smell gets into stuff. Depending on how much he smokes (could be one a week, or a daily habit), do you want to turn up for job interviews smelling of pot?

That's quite the honest ad! I wasn't familiar with the phrase "420" before, so you've educated me.
