Writer's Block: Roommate from Hell  
Have you ever had a nightmarish roommate? What made you incompatible? How did you eventually resolve your conflicts?

Heh, have I ever told you about the crayfish?...

Clearly this will be more pertinent next year when I live full-time with another person other than my sister (although I guess you could argue that she is my roommate. In that case, let me tell you that along with other ridiculous habits and things, the girl does not pick her clothes up off the floor, and I don't feel bad for no longer caring if her clothes are folded or not when I do our laundry), but there was Governor's School last summer when I lived on the only floor where people lived three-to-a-room (thank you, last name at the end of the alphabet!). We got along okay, but we really didn't interact outside of our room, and I haven't talked to either of them since we left. But there was the morning when I woke up and almost stepped on a crayfish that was crawling across the floor. Alice had brought it back from the science lab (also, thank goodness I didn't go to GSE for an academic subject!) and opened the container it was in to... feed it? Look I don't know. But I woke up Amanda when I yelped (I didn't have my glasses on yet, people. It could have been a HUGE cockroach for all I knew, and people on my floor had trouble with those) and Alice was like "oh, there it is!" Ah, good times.

Lol. I miss being in a place where these kinds of things happened.
