Order your bubble wrapped kitchen now!

I try not to write about my roommate.

But this past week certain things have happened that make it impossible for me to not share them with the internet.

When I moved into my apartment, my roommate had newspaper all over the counters. Which is weird, right? But I just rolled with it, thinking it was some kind of Indian thing that I didn't know about. Eventually, one day I asked her why (it took me like a month - I don't like confronting people, shut up), apparently the kitchen counters stain really easily and she doesn't want to deal with cleaning them all the time.

So, it's laziness. Alright, well it's weird and personally a clean kitchen is actually something I am not lazy about (I'll put off vacuuming for weeks), but each to their own. I can live with it.

Last week, I walked into my apartment to find La Roomie cleaning the kitchen. She was laying down the newspaper...And then she was laying down bubble wrap on top of the newspaper. Two layers of bubble wrap.

"I don't think this is going to work?"

"I don't know what you're trying to do there"

"I'm sick of changing the newspaper every couple of weeks, I'm hoping the bubble wrap will make it so I don't have to..."

"Yeah, no that isn't going to work"

We now have layers of bubble wrap on our counters. Have you ever tried to cut a capsicum on a surface that keeps popping?


  1. absolutely hilarious! that is pretty much one of the funniest things i have ever heard - maybe even funnier than jam-es =)

  2. Too funny...

    Tell her Clorox Cleanup is less expensive and takes less space! ;)

  3. Lisa - Funnier than Ja-mes? perhaps, but unlikely. PS - e-mail me.

    Slick - So true. You have to pick your battles though...

  4. Haha, that's amazing. We need pictures! In all seriousness, I would have fun with that. I'd be popping those bubbles, they are just SO addicting.
