    Text - supertramp @supretramp Replying to @Nicole_Cliffe Roommate bought 5ft boa constrictor, kept in plywood box with chicken wire, door secured with boot as doorstop. Boa goes missing. Roommate insists it was stolen (he used to take it to bars downtown to "impress girls"). Found 3 weeks later, very much alive & loose in our house. 12/1/18, 2:36 AM

    Text - Melissa Huggins @MHuggins99 Replying to @Nicole_Cliffe First roommate in college had a literal shrine to her long-distance boyfriend who attended a college ~6 hours away. It started out small and grew until the entire wall on her side of the room was plastered with photos of him, including poster-sized images of his HS senior photos 12/1/18, 1:04 AM

    Text - Shannon Stirone @shannonmstirone Replying to @Nicole_Cliffe One of my college roommates brought home a feral cat, and then another feral cat (animals weren't allowed in the dorms) but none of us knew about it.

    Text - matt lubchansky @Lubchansky Replying to @Nicole_Cliffe i feel like I've already told you about the one who refused to use the bathroom because it was "too far" from his room at night and had a ton of Gatorade bottles full of piss on his windowsill, and would dump them into the bushes outside 11/30/18, 6:47 PM
