Fast Post Friday – ISO: Roommate for BlogHer ’12

I have a room booked at the Hilton New York for the BlogHer ’12 Conference. I cannot afford to stay there by myself. So I need a roomie! Here’s what you can expect from me as a roommate:

  • Mostly quiet. I’m an introvert, so I occasionally need to head back to the room to rechare during the day.
  • I sleep with white noise from Simply Noise at night to help with my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
  • I don’t smoke. I’m allergic to cigarette smoke.
  • I get my geek on during downtime by playing a little World of Warcraft. :-)
  • I don’t mind if you stay up/out later than me so long as you do your best not to wake me up when you get back to the room.
  • I am not a morning person, so I shower at night and set my alarm for about 20 minutes before breakfast. So if you like to get up early to shower before sessions, that works out just fine!

I am looking for one roommate to split the cost of the room with me 50/50, or possibly two roommates who are willing to share a bed.  (Trust me – you don’t want to sleep with me. I’m a bed hog, and I toss and turn like crazy.) Another person, it there’s a 4th roomie who would be willing to bring a sleeping bag and camp on the floor. I’d be happy to buy you dinner one night for the trouble of making you take the floor while I have the bed!

Comment if you’re interested!

That’s me: Christina Gleason. I’m a professional copywriter, editor, and blogger. My company is called Phenomenal Content. (Hire me!) I’m a relatively high-functioning Aspie who also lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. I am not ashamed to admit that I am in the care of a psychiatrist, who assures me that people in therapy are often better adjusted than “normal” people who are not, because at least we know what our issues are and are working on them. I’m a geek for grammar, fantasy, and select types of gaming, including World of Warcraft and Plants vs Zombies 2. I hate vegetables. I have an intense phone phobia, so I’ll happily conduct business over email or IM instead. I have started writing no fewer than five novels, and I hope to finish one of them...eventually.

    I am interested! I have Multiple Sclerosis and Fibro so smoke and smells bother me as well. I prefer a bed to myself too :) Feel free to email me if interested: smtm(at)live(dot)com

      I will be emailing you! Sounds like we could be a very good match. :-)

    Are you still looking for a roommate? I have six kids and can sleep through anything and actually prefer white noise. I don’t smoke and will be extremely grateful to find a roommate or two. Please let me know.
