Roommate Weirdness

This is so weird that I had to break my one-a-day post habit and post twice today. I just spent the last 5 hours lying on the sofa downstairs. During that time, I watched 7 episodes of Sex and the City and the Wedding Crashers, had some grapes, and made two bowls of air-popped popcorn.

I made a lot of noise.

I thought I was by alone.

The fridge and the air popper are 1 foot away from the door to Sven's room, which was shut. The lights stayed off the entire time in Sven's room, which as a reminder is only about 6 x 6.

Ten minutes ago, during the end of Wedding Crashers, I was astounded when I saw a light go on in Sven's room. A few minutes later, he came out of his room. I had had no idea that he was in there. For five hours!

Who does that?

What healthy person in their right mind sleeps in their room for 5 hours a day?? And, doesn't make a sound so their roommate has no idea that they are not blissfully alone as they thought they were?

It's super weird.

And now, of course, when I'm finally ready to go to bed early and try to kick this cold, Sven has just woken up and wants to watch TV. I decided, eff it, and though I knew it was kind of bitchy, asked him to turn it down. It's not my problem that he chose to sleep the entire afternoon away. Plus, I'm SICK. I. Need. My. Sleep.

I'm beginning to detest roommates with a passion. Especially roommates who do not have lives. Grrrrr.

Wasn't he supposed to go to work this afternoon?

Anywho, I'm glad you spoke up and asked him to turn it down. You deserve to sleep in heavenly peace. :)

When does this dude work? Jeez. You were totally within rights to ask him to turn it down.

You guys are all hilarious, and on this day when my head hurts, my body aches, and I just feel crappy sitting at work, you all made me smile. Thanks. :)

Holly, Welcome! I would love to exchange stories!!

hahahahaaa! Sparky Duck just made me laugh!

Nobody should sleep for 5hours during the day, UNLESS they work the night shift or are sick, of course. How irritating!

Hope you got a good nights rest:)
