...in North Chelmsford.

I'm working in the suburbs this summer. The company has found all the interns housing in a hotel.

This means, for approximately the same cost as living in SH in the summer, I have:

A kitchenette
A bathroom with a bathtub
A king-size bed
2 TVs, with cable
free breakfast (no clue if it blows or not, though)
and internet at reasonable speeds

While I'm sure it's nothing compared to Tom's sweet pad, it just points up how dorm life sucks. Of course, to compensate, the faucet handle in the bathroom broke off when I tried to wash my hands. You win some, you lose some.

No cuisinart, but there is a coffee maker and a toaster and a very tiny sink. And a full-sized fridge, next to a half-width closet. Like, I have known people that would not fit into this closet.

So you'll have to find someone else to store to bodies that you use in your infernal necromancy?

You don't want to store your food and your corpses in the same place imo.

...even necromancers

Update:

The breakfast is actually pretty good. It's not continental, so there are sausages and stuff to complement the bodies in my fridge.

My coworkers are alright, except for one kinda douchey guy. Oh, and the fact that having a gaggle of under-21 mendicants trailing unsubtly after you makes it very hard to buy alcohol.
