Introducing Starsky and Hutch

I believe I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I currently have two roommates. They probably wouldn’t appreciate my using their real names on the Internet, so I’m going to refer to them simply as Starsky and Hutch.

This didn’t take too much thinking on my part. I secretly nicknamed them the first time I met them.

Hutch is of average height and blond. He is the better looking of the two though that isn’t saying much and he’s the quiet reserved one of the pair.

Starsky is shorter than Hutch and dark-haired. He’s very outgoing and makes friends easily. To say that he’s butt ugly would be a kindness. In fact, he’s so ugly that clowns are afraid of him.

I’m kidding; of course, the truth is he is strikingly handsome. So much so that he could probably be a model or an actor if he chose to go that route. People often remark that he looks like a young Tom Cruise although I have to disagree. Except for the hair, I don’t think he looks anything like Cruise.

(He doesn’t see the resemblance, either.)

Both of my roommates are very musically oriented. I can’t carry a tune to save my life, but both of these guys can sing. However, Hutch is the real musician of the two. He not only sings, but also is a songwriter and plays piano and drums. One of the reasons he moved in with me was so he’d have a place for his drum set. Before they were living in a small apartment and he had to leave them at home.

Both of them are outdoorsmen and love hunting, fishing and camping. I on the other hand can take it or leave it. I’ve done my fair share of playing woodsman over the years, but living with these guys reminds me of summer camp when I was ten, minus the basket weaving and leather crafts.

When I have more time, I promise to recount a few of our more colorful exploits.

wow! he is a real musician...
are they medical students??

Yay... flatmate stories! Always the most amusing tales people have. Why does putting multiple students in the same living space always end up in randomness and hilarity? I'm dreading not living in a student house for that very reason!

Neumed said...

Yes, they're both medical students, which makes it nice.

And yes, I have a ton of stories to tell, I just hope they come across in a blog post. After all, sometimes you just had to be there. :)

I can't wait to read more about them and your adventures. I know exactly what you mean about not being sure if the stories will come across because maybe you had to be there. I think that all the time when I write something and wonder if anyone is going to get it but me!

But what I really want to read about is the mr mom thing you left in your comment on my blog yesterday. Very interesting.

Hi RAgirl, I'm not sure I can (or should) blog about my "Mr. Mom" experience. I'm new to this blogging thing and I'm still unsure how far to go in discussing real people.

I was hesitant to blog about my roommates, for example, but they were cool with it (for now) as long as I changed their names.

They may change their minds later.
