candlelight isn't romantic when your housemate steals the good candles  
he has no candle etiquette. I bet you didn't even realize there was candle etiquette, but there is. Let me tell you:

a) when your housemate leaves three candles by the front door with matches next to them, don't move all three deeper into the house.
b) when your housemate shares her candles with you, don't forget to thank her for them.
c) when you take a shower during the day, just leave the bathroom door open for sunlight instead of wasting candles taking a shower in the COMPLETE dark (since your bathroom has no windows)
d) when your housemate shares her candles with you, don't use ALL the big fat long taper ones, leaving her with the tea candles.

the other thing you might consider not doing? using the freezer to store your dinner because it still remains cool (versus fridge), and opening and closing it three or four times to get to your leftovers.

(all this brought to you by my irritation my block STILL doesn't have power, even though the blocks on either side of us do... want to know when xmas lights are irritating? when you can't plug in your phone to charge or turn on the heater because it's electric)

am currently at the coffee bean, enjoying their civilized internet access for 2 hours before they kick me out. at least the city crew finally started work on the lines up the street today, but it is slow going since transformers blew. and more winds are expected tonight. such joy.

So glad my only housemate is my girlfriend. ;D Means I can legitimately rant at her for any weird things she does come out with. (She's a very well behaved girl, I must say, but she's utterly obsessed with cleaning the toaster.)
