New Roommates?

I just got home from lunch with a potential new roommate.

The high points:
Crab cakes
Pitchers of beer

The iffy points:
Frat Boy

I've been talking with a friend about moving into a four bedroom house with him, his roommate, and his friend (the guy I was just introduced to). That would make 2 guys, 2 girls...but we haven't found a house yet.

I'm eager to live with someone I can actually interact with and I'm sick of living under the back up cast for riverdance...but am I really eager enough to move in with a couple of frat boys that I could hardly hold a conversation with? Don't get me wrong...I have nothing against the guys whatsoever. It's just that they are much more interested in which restaurant to get drunk at or eat crabs at all day or if anyone has talked to a certain 'friend' lately than any other kind of conversation. I didn't have anything to add to the baseball conversation - I don't follow the sport more than on the very minor surface. I didn't go to their university so I'm not obsessed with it or that fraternity like they are. They would more be drinking buddies or the guys who threw a BBQ that I automatically get to go to because I live in the house.


I'll figure it out eventually, I'm sure.

after you start having sex with them, the lack of things to talk about won't be so bad... LOL.. you know it's going to happen, hell it's almost like 3's company but with another guy... LOL

Ah well, frat guys are great to drink with. And you know, where there's one, there's more. They're the great socializers (unless they belonged to the anti-social frat on campus) so you'd be introduced to lots of potential...lays--er drinking buddies.

And hey, the less conversation the better. You don't want to be one of those people whose roomies are up their ass all the time wanting to hang out, do you? Come on Gemini, you know you prefer to pick and chose your hang out times on your own.

Good setup.

i don't want to come of like a know it all, i'm technically younger than you, in the blogocosm at least..

but..i wouldn't knowingly enter into a legal contract which forces me to share a bathroom with two drunken frat daddies with whom i had no reason to wallow in their piss...i'm just sayin'...

mmmMMMMmm beer.

Don't worry, it's not just the frat boys who can provide you with no worthy conversation, it's pretty much anyone with that certain chromosome...
