Coolest Roomate Competition – First Entry


Haven’t received too many entries yet, so get on your horses and email them to [email protected] You just need a photo and a couple of sentences.

“This is my roommate Chris. We live in Shaw, and we’ve been housemates for almost three years but we’ve known each other for almost eight. He is one of the most knowledgable and funny people I’ve ever met. He seriously deserves an award for putting up with me (and my fiancee, who moved in with us last year without a word of protest from Chris). He patiently puts up with the two of us, who happen to be on the messy side, and never (okay, fine, hardly ever) complains. He bought a Wii for the household and lets us play Wii tennis for hours. He keeps a bucket of candy in his room and doesn’t mind sharing. He takes turns with dog walking/feeding and is our dogs’ favorite uncle. He is such a good roommate that my fiancee and I are hoping to buy a house with a basement apartment rental for Chris, so we can keep our “family” intact even after the wedding. He is like living with live entertainment- I seriously get an ab workout from laughing when we hang out.” Photo that I suspect may end this wonderful friendship after the jump.


“**Sidebar to explain his outfit: My grandmother has this funny tendency to buy me ridiculous pajamas for Christmas every year. Never one to let a perfectly good pair of pajamas go to waste, Chris rescues them every time. Bottom line is: Chris is awesome. And ladies, if you’re interested- he’s single! And cross your fingers for me that he won’t be mad at me for this…”
