“No, I don’t think so, because I’ve lived a long time to have my own home. I raised my children by myself, so it’s my turn.”

Boy howdy, would that ever be a disaster.... at my age, I can't even get along with myself.

I would if I were single. The idea of being married and having roomates is not exactly appealing

I'd share my home with an 18-year old Swedish international student just starting at KU in order to cut expenses!

I don't think Hef shares his home, that's why there is a show called the Girls Next Door. They get their own house.

It'd have to be somebody that is fond of lemurs.

We built our house small enough that we don't have room. There was a point to that.

I will extend an open invitation to Summer Glau and Mila Jovovich. My wife cannot complain since they are on my "list."

My house is just big enough for us and three teenagers.

I suspect that the girl with roommates is renting. Not to save money, no. I would do without something, but then I rent an apartment where I am not allowed to have a live in guest. Several years ago I "shared" a place because of money problems and to this day, I do not like those people. I am now very happy to live by myself.

As a single person I can see having roommates but as a married person...heck no! Marriages are tough enough without adding unnecessary drama.

Is it just me, or does Joshua look like the person taking the picture of him is naked or just flashed him.

To answer the question, no, no, no, NO. Especially if it is Joshua.

I think it is more likely he got goosed then, if those are the two options.

Prospector -- what do you have against the Cubs going to the World Series?

I'd share my home. And I say that only after noticing that waka isn't around for this thread.

Just kidding, waka. I'd at least feed you.

A delicious idea, but it takes some planning. I added extra soundproofing to the basement and an extra meat locker.

Chicago has two teams. Our President Obama is a White Sox fan. It is illegal to "bare" children. So, beware! My cat Deion is my roomie, he has good opinions, good table manners, and he is always there for me.
