New Year's Resolution: get a new housemate! As those who speak to me regularly would know, for the last two weeks I've been frantically engaged in a search for two housemates, because my hipster housemates told me on 8 December that they would both be moving out on 22 December.

This is the worst possible time to be finding new housemates. There is the busyness factor: finding time to interview prospective housemates while trying to finish off end-of-year work and taking part in the usual round of pre-Christmas social activities. Then there has been the financial pressure of having the entire house's rent deducted from my bank account as usual without housemates to reimburse me, at a time when I have been spending money on Christmas presents and socialising, and I won't be earning any more money until two weeks into January.

I have already found someone for the larger of the two empty rooms. The housemate in question is a friendly man in his early 30s who will henceforth be known as "Foxtel Steve". But the smaller (but with most excellent built-in storage space) and astoundingly well-priced room is still vacant. Because of the price and the size, most people who've contacted me about it have been travellers who only want somewhere for a couple of months (I want someone to stay until at least August next year), strange quiet people who make me uncomfortable, or nervous desperate people who make me uncomfortable.


Why don't you email me?
