unfortunately there is not jpoobear, that is of my knowledge. but u can try creating another user account JUST for your roommate and have restrictions on it so that u can keep some tabs.

You could password protect your computer, so your roommate can't use it.
That way you don't have to worry about, where he's been surfing.
