I am a nomad

At the end of this week I'm moving to a little basement suite on Commercial Drive. This will be my eleventh home since moving to Vancouver 8 years ago, and my first one with no roommates.

People keep asking me if it's nice. Seriously, guys. You're talking to someone who has, at various times, lived in a storage room with no door, a cockroach-infested dive in South Vancouver, the math building at my university, and a closet the size of a deep-freeze. Don't ask if it's "nice". Ask me if the owner/caretaker knows I'm living there, and whether or not it has indoor plumbing. Or ask me if the bathroom has a door (no, that would cost extra).

I am living there legally and paying rent, it does have indoor plumbing, and the bathroom really does have a door. But regardless of how nice it is, I've got the place to myself. So I'll be whizzing with the bathroom door open anyway.

You may have a bathroom door, but it doesn't lock!

yes, that was awkward, but don't worry. You don't have anything I haven't seen before.
