So I need a new housemate as my most excellent current housemate is moving to Melbourne.
I live in a cute little unit that isn’t much from the outside, but perfect on the inside. Rent is $165/week & bond is 4 weeks rent. The only other expenses are electricity bills whenever they occur & $30/month for pretty awesome wireless internet. The Windsor train station is a 5 minute walk across Lutwyche road & is 3 stops from central. Also, there’s a bus stop which is even closer & buses, including the 333 run regularly (pretty much every 10 mins or so) to the valley & the city.
I’m looking for: A non-smoking, non-drugtaking, non-religious person, who’s not overly neat but not overly messy, who doesn’t mind confining parties to Friday & Saturday nights only, who has a steady job (students are fine as long as they can pay their rent on time) and doesn’t mind having a good chat now & then. Gender & sexuality aren’t an issue, but they must not be a racist, homophobic, sexist bigot.
So if you or someone you know is looking for a great place to live contact me!
“Try never mentioning your spouse, your family, your home, your girlfriend or boyfriend to anyone you know or work with — just for one day. Take that photo off your desk at work, change the pronoun you use for your spouse to the opposite gender, guard everything you might say or do so that no one could know you’re straight, shut the door in your office if you have a personal conversation if it might come up. Try it. Now imagine doing it for a lifetime. It’s crippling; it warps your mind; it destroys your self-esteem. These men and women are voluntarily risking their lives to defend us. And we are demanding they live lives like this in order to do so. Yes, Admiral Mullen. It is about integrity. It’s also about a minimum of human respect.”—Andrew Sullivan, responding to Rich Lowry who said it’s no big deal to live hiding one’s sexual orientation.
