Well not quite but my housemate [livejournal.com profile] cloneboy and I need someone to replace or departing Glaswegian in our 3 bed house in Hyde Park.

I'm nearly 40 and Al is 30 this weekend so we're after someone relatively grown up (although we do have loud parties occasionally and Al likes the more hideous end of the gabba/industrial/powernoise genre) and more importantly drama-free. And someone tidy but not obsessively so (Al is messy but I've trained him to respond to simple verbal instructions) as it'd drive you up the wall. and me. I can't stand obsessively tidy people. they give me the willies.

I'm obliged to mention our useless cat that likes to wee in the hall. it's not really a great selling point (although she is very pretty) but I figure being honest is best. She's a housecat at least so there's no risk of deadthings(tm)

The room is theoretically unfurnished although Al has some furniture at his parents house that could be press-ganged in to service - but this does not include a bed unfortunately. It's a nice size though.

We're at the end of a terrace by the trainline near the Co-op on Cardigan Road. Rent is £220 per month plus bills and the house has instant hot water, central heating, double glazing and should have a burglar alarm sorted soon.

Other notable selling points for the house (other than the opportunity to live with the world's only non-bitter failed nightclub owner ) include a shit piano, a non-euclidian persian rug and the artwork from the front of the DJ booth from theSubculture.

I don't have a clue about anyone looking to rent atm (though I've got a friend applying for jobs in Leeds, so if he gets one, I'll let him know ASAP!)

2 totally un-related queries though...
1 - kitty peeing in the hall... Have you tried Feliway (http://www.vetuk.co.uk/feliway-products-c-1) as I think it's amazing... Usually peeing where they're not supposed to is a sign of stress and this is the de-stress-arama when it comes to kitties! If it's in the hall, it could be something as simple as the scent of lots of people coming in and out, or someone brought something in on their shoe once...? Also (though I've not tested this one), putting food down where she's peeing (after cleaning) as cats are quite picky and don't tend to wee where they eat...?

2 - you have a "shit piano"...? What makes it shit? Poor piano... :P

Speaking as someone living in London, I'd just like you to know I'm sobbing gently.

My mortgage for a two bedroom house is £255 per month plus bills.
London, everything happens there but most of the tickets are bought by folks like me who can afford it because we don't live there.

Living the Dream to a soundtrack of White Rabbit by The Jefferson Airplane I suspect :D

whats a non-euclidian persian rug?

I suspect a rug created by a Lovecraftian rug maker. Sucks your eyes out if you look at it too long and contains unnatural colours that seem to move causing nausea.
Though it might just be spherical.

having lived with this rug for a number of years i surmise that both of your suggestions are wrong. i'm wondering if its a posh word for indistructable beer sponge

non euclidean geometry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Euclidean_geometry) . See the fiction bit.
To absorb so much beer it must project into other dimensions and the sight of beer being sucked away may cause feelings of unspeakable horror in the mentally weak.

it does not obey the conventions of planar geometry as we know it!
