I can't stand the feel of jeans on my ankles, so I am almost never barefoot while wearing them, even just sitting around the house.
It's very important to me that I keep up correspondance with people, and knowing that I probably know too many people to do this with regularity doesn't alleviate my guilt. I have a number of friends that I love but I have not spoken with in about two years. I hate that.
When I was 17 I turned my hair bright orange. It was awesome, and I've always entertained the idea of doing it again.
I love coffee. I never liked the stuff, but started drinking it a little in response to peer pressure friends. It's also the thing to do amongst VBCC. Between the inherent coolness of the activity and the Eucharistic overtones, I eventually became hooked. Alan and Liz have this neat coffee machine that grinds the beans and doesn't use paper filters. Best stuff ever. I lived in their house for about four days before decided it would be my little "job" to make the coffee.
Other than that, I'm pretty much their Kato Kaelin.
The other Kyle is one of my best friends, and except for that whole "me living in Dallas or Oxford" thing, we've been almost inseparable for the last 5 years. This is why it continually amuses me that we have few common interests, except that we're both just so awesome. Case in point:
I have never stayed awake through an entire Star Wars film.
ESPN's SportCenter makes me want to poke myself in the eye.
My favorite bits of are this icon of the Emmaus Road encounter (it's my favorite gospel story) and Rembrandt's Return of the Prodigal Son.
My favorite breakfast for myself is coffee and toast with jam. If I'm with other people, I love to make pancakes or a fritata.
My friends make me a better man. I could name at least a dozen people who give me more than I could ever imagine to offer in return, but I won't because we're all a bit shy.
I could listen to Jen or Johnny talk for a very long time, because their Northern Irish accents amaze me. They're also great people.
I almost never listen to music while I study.
I think about Rowan Williams at least once a day.
My reading for Biblical Interpretation is a bit more boring than I thought it would be, and that bums me out.
I love throwing frisbee, but I don't like formal games. Sports have rules, and that really upsets me.
One of my favorite things is sitting in the Creeches' living room and exchanging clever remarks with Alan as we surf blogs on our laptops and watch EWTN.
I have so much stuff to go get done right now, but I wanted to sit down and write something fun.
