It’s hard to know where to start with Tim. I suppose the hair is as good a place as any. Tim’s hair is incredible, and with a mere change of style or cut, he is able to completely change the way he looks. He’s really good at dancing (Sara likens it to a little boy discovering all the neat things his body can do- this is surprisingly accurate), the best in the universe at Stack Attack, and also really good at Boggle. The other night he wasn’t even playing but busted out words like “glut” and “maw” complete with definitions (though he later explained that he learned these words playing Halo…).

Tim has really weird dreams. Earlier this year he dreamt he was an African antelope, so now I play Simon & Garfunkel’s “At The Zoo” on occasion in his honor (one line is ‘antelopes are missionaries’). He also has a knack for saying completely hilarious and quotable things. Last week in language class our teacher was collecting the paper cards we had just used for a game, and as she put them in the envelope he quietly and undramatically sighed, “Ciao, papir,” with the most amazing combination of affection and resignation. I guess you had to be there. Anyway, Tim is awesome. He’s super nice and caring, and even brings us single girls flowers sometimes.

To really understand Tim, though, go here.
