So, first, a little IT band news. I ran today in front of my physical therapist. She immediately noticed that my right knee bends inside when I stride. That’s what cause the IT band to get all pissed off! So, we know what we need to do to fix my stride, and HOPEFULLY fix my IT band issues!
I was told, though, that I’m not allowed to mountain bike. I explained that pushing down on the pedal while going uphill kind of hurt – and that whole activity has been cut! Dang.
In other news, my roommate is moving out. Sad, I know, but he’s moving on to better things (aka moving in with the GF), so the Duke and I need a new roommate! My original plan fell through, so I’m back to internet sites to try and find one…
I managed to find the ad I posted when I found the current roommate. I updated it a little, and re-posted it yesterday. I’ve already gotten EIGHT responses.
Tips for responding to Rooms For Rent ads on Craigslist:
-give more than a name and phone number!
-when it says “Available June 1” do NOT ask me when it is available (or anything similarly obvious). I assume you are an idiot and delete the e-mail without response
-use proper grammar and spell check. If not, I assume you are an idiot and delete the e-mail without response.
-have a respectable e-mail address. I don’t want to live with “email@example.com”. If you have a stupid e-mail address that reflects negatively upon your personality, I assume you are an idiot and delete the e-mail without response.
-I said no pets. That means NO PETS. I’m sure your cat/dog is great, but my dog will probably try to eat it at some point, and I don’t want to be responsible for that.
Yes, I’m picky. And maybe a little mean… but my screening process has been successful 95% of the time! That other 5%? Well, sometimes people like the idea of a dog, but not the actual act of having one around.
Maybe I should host a reality TV show to narrow down the contestants…
