Wow. If your state of mind is reflected in that run-on-adrenaline-rush-sentance, I sure hope things calm down for you soon! My thoughts are with you :)

As for the OP, I hope you find a vegetarian or tolerant vegan to room with!

Umm, OK. Just call me @ 773-384-2115 if things don't work out for you and if you want to see the place. The fact that you are a vegan is a BIG plus. As for the pit bull, I would welcome the creature with open arms. It's the other roommate that doesn't want to live with animals. He is only a vegetarian anyway--jerk. The landlord has no say in who (both human and non-human) moves in. It is strickly a roommate decision.

I did a credit report on myself. Can you tell me how I can fake my own death? Know of a good way? Maybe I should just leave the country. I knew it was bad, but not THAT bad!

Can you tell me how I can fake my own death? Know of a good way?Ha! My grandma was getting a huge amount of junkmail from this one company years ago, and they wouldn't take her off the lists so she could quit getting it. So she wrote a letter (supposedly from my uncle) explaining how she had just passed away, and recieving mail for her was painful for him. She stopped getting the mail :)

i'll take two issues of street wise please!

hey the place is still available. do you still have the dog? that may be may be problem with the other roommate, not me however. give me a call if you are still looking by the time you get around to reading this.

please note there is no lease here, it's a month-to-month basis. no intrusive credit checks ;) think about it if you are OK living with 2 weird artsy, but very nice guys. we would have to meet you very soon, because the rent is due in a few days here.
