I just had to reply to this. LOL.

Birds are creepy. They glare at you with this manic expression in their eyes. I remember having to take a chook out of the fridge once... I opened the freezer door and the bird was half-thawed, looking slimy and covered in goosebumps. I slammed the door and got my brother to do it for me. He gave me the evil eye but did it anyway.

I'm a vegetarian now (almost 9 years). Haha.

Hi Macaroonie, I donot think it is impossible to find people of your liking- We (me and my hubby) donot drink/smoke, are vegetarian, honest and reliable. Our friends can come over for dinner but that involves casual chit-chat. We have two kids and like us, they are active but not hyper-active. And I know there must be (at least) some people with same lifestyle.

^ Good luck! Hope it's easier than finding a landlord who lets tenants cook. No amount of chicken-related New Year's resolutions will help me with that. :(

Guerilla panda, i think finding a landlord that allows some sort of cooking is do-able... not impossible at all, wish you the best of luck in finding that person! are you currently looking for a place to live?

^ Macaroonie, yeah, some sort of cooking... Like you said in a different thread, landlords do not always understand that you need to use the stove to cook. :? Like you, I would gladly pay extra for the gas. And my landlord hardly ever uses the stove, so it's not a question of competing for kitchen time or space. It's not a smell issue, either (unless pasta, stirfrys, and Japanese curry are considered smelly). Plus I'm quite good about cleaning up.

I know I'm whinging, my current living arrangements are really quite lovely for the price. It's just this one thing.

I'm locked into a contract until April, but any leads you can give me on landlords and flatmates would be much appreciated! Is there an opening in your chook-free flat?
