Default Adventures With A Russian Roommate- 2

Hi Everyone--

I am caught up with everything at work and have a few minutes to write and say hello. So, I thought I would give you a quick roommate update.

She continues to be a nice person. She cooks, which is great! Some of the combinations are interesting! However, I try to tough it out and be greatful for the food. Did I mention before that she eats garlic cloves like we eat grapes? I can't do this, and she laughs at how I cut it up into small bites.

My pep peeve with her now is that she goes through a roll of toliet paper a day! How she uses this much, I have no idea! Maybe I should have asked my Secret Santa for a year's supply of toilet paper?

After being gone for the weekend, last night, I felt like the three bears, as I said, "Someone has been sleeping in my bed." I found her slippers next to it, and my pillowcase was missing. I know that she does not like her hard bed, but this is just weird! Thankfully, due to her multiple showers a day, I know that she is clean when she goes to bed.

So, that's a quick update. I should get back to work. Thanks for listening, and I'll write again as more adventures with the Russian roommate happen!

Julie

I enjoyed your post. We have had a couple of foreign exchange students and I noticed so many differences in their habits. One was a boy from Albania - he was used to rationing water and I had to impress on him that after he played basketball and got hot and sweaty he needed to take another shower. I put deoderant in his bathroom and I checked it after I took him to school and he was using it but he still smelled sweaty. He was packing for a weekend visit with another student and I asked him if he packed his deoderant. He asked me what that was. I took him to his bathroom and showed it to him and told him you put it under your arms so you don't smell. His remark was " Oh, that is what that is for" - we never did figure out what he had been using it for. He was in awe of everything we have in this country. Things we all take for granted.

Maybe she stuffs her bra with the toilet paper

Thanks for the picture bikerbabe. I bet that would last her about a week- LOL

Tonight she has a new bed that someone is letting her try. Let's hope it works.

Yeah, it could be a lot worse. At least she cooks and doesn't stink.
