And, here's how my mail sent out for "accomodation required" looked like :) It was sent on 15-Oct-2001. I got quite a few interesting wisecracks for replies, as was intended ;-)
I'm looking for accomodation near office, either single room or single
bedroom house with attached bath and no water problem. Accomodation on
a sharing basis with exisiting tenants is also fine by me provided I
get my own single room, (preferably) with an attached bath. Rent around
1.5K max pm. OK to commit to a short term lease if required.
For the sake of those who are ready to share accomodation, my interests
include, but are not limited to, music, watching TV, reading
novels/comics/magazines, computer gaming, linux, ... I'm fun loving,
easy going person who enjoys spending quality time with friends. I am
looking for people who don't just stay in their rooms, and whom I can
enjoy spending my time with. I'm comfortable with room mates of either
gender. I will be mindful of your privacy and your boundaries. My only
constraint is that my roomie(s) _must_ be teetotallers and non-smokers.
If you feel I am someone you would like to live with, do contact me and
I shall get back ASAP.
Those who have pointers to rentals, please do pass on the information to
