Ok so I'm currently lodging with a fella I know through work / the bird-watching community. Someone once made him a wikipedia here...
He's not that odd, (although has some pretty amazing stories and a penchant for dressing as a pirate), but he has two other lodgers who are incredibly odd...
An alcoholic retired schoolmaster in his early 60s. Mustachio'd, ex-public school boy, heros include Geoffrey Boycott and Douglas Barder, absolute archetype of an old english alcoholic. Since Paul Whitehouse used to live in Norwich I do wonder if he modelled Rowley Birkin QC on this fellas. Lost his wife / job / family / self respect. Last time I put The Doors on he burst into tears.
Early 20s wide-eyed unemployed chef. Mod, incredibly thin, large-nosed with thinning hair. Nasal voice with thick Norwich accent. Really disconcerting shifty looking in a sort of 'kill you in your sleep with an ice-pick' type of way. Two weeks after moving in I was sat watching CSI when he asked me "So have you watch a snuff movie?" WTF?!
Ok so has anyone ever lived with anyone wierd than the above?
