Roommate Appreciation Day, Pt. One

July 14, 2010

Let’s be honest. Living with girls is hard. Ask any husband. But whereas men have several avenues to soothe these hormonal, perfumed human roller-coasters, as a roommate, options are limited. But failure to acknowledge the fact that you don’t really hate the person you are living with, just their habits, tastes, and personality, results in a lot of this:

Thus, the birth of Roommate Appreciation Day: for when just doing the dishes isn’t enough.

Usually RAD (because it’s rad. Yeah…) involves lunch and a movie, but Lindsay wanted something different. We started early (there’s a 10 in the a.m. too?!). Lauren brought over breakfast and we started a Bones marathon. That, however, ended quickly as the internet was too unstable for live streaming and our (totally legit…yeah) episodes were giving us trouble in playback.

Shelving the movie marathon until tomorrow, we grabbed lunch from Lin’s favorite Jackson restaurant (Keifer’s) and a special treat for dessert.

Yes, we really got that. It is a ice cream pizza covered in white chocolate curls, m&m’s, Reese’s, Heath Bar, and cherry disks. It was bizarre and delicious and I am sending a picture of it to

We watched Shutter Island (a complete mind fuck and darkly good) where, in between hushed “oh, my God’s” and “no!’s,” we chowed down.

We hope to work out the kinks of the television/movie marathon tomorrow (Lin, the lucky bitch, gets two days!), but at least we will end the night with the Psych season five premier.

You know that’s right.

    Sadly for me, they don’t have one for any androids, that I know of. The NBC site has it for iPhone of course though! 😉
