DC Blogger Seeks (Im)Perfect Roommate for Blog Fodder!

With beloved personal assistant, photographer and intern
JessiCub moving to Chicago, it is time to look for a new roommate to blog about. So should I stick with the standard Craigslist template or create a truthful ad that clearly states what any blogger desires in a roommate?

Wanted: Roommate to Share House with Self-Important DC Blogger!!!

You must have a fascinating job, verifiable references, good credit, eccentric friends and the ability to generate humorous quotations. Do you often find yourself involved in wacky or thought provoking situations? Are you a frequent witness of crime and/or a daily Metro bus rider? If so you may be the perfect roommate!

If you already have a nickname move to the front of the line! Otherwise be prepared to be assigned some unlikely name such as “Logan Idol”, “Petworth Princess” or “Cousin Chutney.”

Please be neat and clean or not mind having pictures of your mess posted for the entire interwebs to be seen.

Must be pet and irony friendly.

My house is one block from U Street Metro. Hotly covered bars, restaurants, and retail are within walking distance. Apply via email describing how you commuted to work on Bike to Work Day or by providing details of your last painful break-up to HerbofDC AT gmail dotcom.

Rent: $900 plus security deposit. Short term okay. No smokers or WebSense programmers.
