A Place To LIve

I found this ad on Craig's List and I responded because I love this part of town. Hilairity insues:

Original Ad

My current roommate will be moving out on the 15th of August. This house is right behind Dibert Elementary and down the street from Parkview Tavern, Delgado , Bud's Broiler and City Park. I am currently seeking a clean, quiet, and amicable female roommate. The apartment is completely furnished (besides your room, of course) so, someone with minimal furniture is ideal. the photos attached do not show the furnishings (sorry!).The bedrooms are separate, and I pretty much keep to myself, so you wont see me very often. I am not home during the day, so the place is pretty much yours from 7am to 5pm. Water and electric are included, $40 for wifi and directv. If you have a wifi card its only $20 to split the directv bill. as you can see, washer and dryer are provided, and the backyard is a great spot for coffee in the morning. The security deposit can be made in 2 payments.

I am:
26 yr old professional
clean, quiet, and love to cook
outside smoker

You are:
whatever age but responsible
clean, quiet, pay your bills on time

My First Response


Are you strictly looking for a female roommate? I'm 29, responsible, not creepy, and I have a full time job, to boot. I love that part of town and not a lot is available. I had some friends that swore they were ready to get a place but not they cannot make rent. I live on campus and cannot stay any longer due to that I graduated (Masters Degree) and am no longer affiliated with the school in any way.

Let me know if you're open to options. I'd be able to pay rent and deposit and I will not ask you to sign a courier check.

Her Reply

Hi Jeff! you sound like quite a guy! unfortunately I can only have either gay males or straight females. my boyfriend is a little nervous about straight men and straight women staying together.

*Quick post script sent immediately

unless you're a gay. because if you are, we can totally do this.

My Quip

What if I said that I was a non-practicing gay male with reoccurring heterosexual tendencies?

Haha. I understand. Thanks anyway.

Her Reply

ahah! i like your personality! too bad. can you pretend to be gay?

Realism is setting in

How much is the rent again? I could pretend but the rent is probably high to fake it every time your boyfriend is around.

Well, now, we've talked a little more. And I am meeting her and I might have a place to live.

The New Reformation

Sometime back, a friend showed me a potential position that she found online and thought I'd be ideal for. Turns out, she was wrong. Oh yeah, it was for an education job at a Catholic church.

My email:

My name is Jeff Watkins. I saw a vocational position open on the Archdiocese of New Orleans' website that I was interested in learning more about. I do feel, however, that I am not necessarily qualified. You see, I am not Catholic, but Protestant (and a Baptist, to boot). But, I do possess an MA in Christian Education from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and this position interests me greatly. Please let me know if the differences in where we sit on the Reformation hinders me from applying for this position.

Thank you.

Jeff Watkins

His Reply

Some months ago I listed a Director of Religious Education position for Our Lady of Prompt Succor Parish in Westwego. The position has been filled since SEPT 08.

By the way- for future reference- any position in the Catholic Church that deals with teaching or organizing the religious education programs of the Catholic Church at any level would require a fully qualified Catholic with credentials and experience in Catholic Religious Education.

May God continue to inspire you to the fullness of light and truth!

How I Spent My Summer

With the end of July looming and summer's end in sight, I figured I would update this blog of mine.

End of May started well. I don't know what happened. Oh yeah, I saw Death Cab For Cutie at the CAC in New Orleans. Awesome.

In early June, I got to experience a WWE pay-per-view for the first time in real life! WWE Extreme Rules! Originally purchased a ticket for a floor seat ($75) then found a friend who wanted to go, bought a cheaper seat ($35), and then went to the event and scalped my ticket ($100). I'm the worst ticket scalper. I need to keep my capitalism online. I cannot see the faces of the folk I rip off. It haunts me.

My aunt died a few days before my birthday. Even though that sucked, I got to see my parents (whom I haven't seen since Christmas 08) and the rest of my family I have not seen in a while. All they could do was talk about was my hair. Pssshh... The amazing thing was I left New Orleans on a Sunday at 3 PM. I got to Ocala, FL at midnight. Got up, drove to Bartow. Went to two funerals (another pseudo relative died the day after my aunt). Left Bartow around 3 PM for NOLA. Made it back by 3 AM the next morning. It was 1400 miles in 36 hours. Pretty damn impressive, no?

Had one of the crappiest birthdays of my life. And, yes, it was mostly my fault. Got to see Drea, Amanda and Chrissy and go gambling.

July was mostly a month of working. Andrea and I went to Fort Walton Beach, FL, Dothan, AL, and Tallahassee, FL for the 4th of July. It was a blast. We had a lot of fun and I got to show her where I spent half of my twenties.

The rest of July has been a bore. I just work. I need to get a new job. But first I have to move off campus. If you live in New Orleans (or the surrounding area) and can swing $350 a month, you can live with me and Jason in Lakeview.

Until another three months go by...
