^ 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?
