Hi. How are you? My name is Alisdaire. I am a recent graduate of Columbia's Playwrights Fellowship and I did my undergraduate at NYU in Screen/TV and Linguistics. But don't let that be a red flag! I work in NY currently doing script coverage for a production company that is a subsidiary of CBS/Showtime. I worked as a PA on Nurse Jackie (I'm trying to sell myself, please don't read this as ego. Purdy please.)
I'm a writer, so by virtue of that very notion, I keep to myself. This is not to say I'm a hermit or of the "anti-social" lot-- it's just that I respect people's space because home is where the heart is. And the goddamn peace and quiet is. So, I'm not the roommate that will have guest celebrations and bake cupcakes every second of the day (if that's what you're looking for, I'm sorry. Not in my pedigree and not a special skill on my resume).
I am very hygienic. This doesn't mean you have to be. I'm also a ginger. This doesn't mean you have to be (although it would be kind of funny if that was a bottomline).
DISCLAIMER: I'm gay
For the ladies, I respect women's spaces (since my last 3 apartments I've lived with girls, all of whom scaled the spectrum of crazy and not crazy, so I do easily adapt to "roomie rapport" -- is that a phrase? If not, by golly, I found one). I'm not squeamish or immature about 'lady issues' and I really am someone who prides themselves on not putting women into a binder (see, I'm political!)
For the "dudes who don't like dudes who like dudes" dude: I bro out a lot. Video games, beer, talking about tits, listening to rap music ironically or non-ironically, smelly shoes, dirty dishes. I'm chill with the 'dill' so don't let the homo thing harsh your mellow. I also don't flaunt my gayness in a way that will make you guys be like, "yup. this can get awkward."
I know this all reads self-deprecating, but it's really more that I'm aware that people may or may not have issues so better be ahead of people's presumptions than find out after the fact. I know most people in this city are open-minded and/or gay, so I assume half of this could be rendered irrelevant. I just like to cover my bases.
If the girl/no gay thing is a bottom line for you, I understand wholeheartedly, but I thought I would at least extend an alternative because, hey, we're all human.
Like what you've read? Yes? No? Maybe so? Could've used a better ending that was less predictable cuz the first movie did it sooo much better? Duly noted.
So if this diatribe engenders the tiniest modicum of faith in the gay male species as being a potential guest in your household, do feel free to email me. I'm available to meet with you at your earliest convenience to talk, text, coffee, beer, chill, do a duck tour. Whatever tickles you pink.
Cheers and I shall keep my fingers crossed.
