The Victorrrrr

Coming in at 22 votes, Justin West is the conqueror in what has become a fierce battle for the scarf. I offer sincere congratulations, and a long scarf will soon be in progress.

Those of you who happen to know me personally are aware of my tendency to say potentially demeaning things, but only in jest. Justin has been a constant casualty of this, which he bears with excellent composure. Because he is likely tired of being beat up, I will use this post as an opportunity to say something nice. Just don’t get a big head, okay kid?

I met Justin at Heidelberg University, where I am an informal member of his piano class. Despite the fact that I am a little high school kid – not to mention geek – he seems to have befriended me. He, along with several other students [including The Critically Acclaimed Defender of Truth, Joe Homan], also teaches me music theory.

Justin is usually semi-dressed-up, and wears a variety of interesting vests. He is studying composition, and is very dedicated to music. He is an intrinsically happy person, and loves riding his bicycle on assorted adventures. He has a great ability to be friendly, and even if he always arrives twenty minutes late, people have to forgive him.

In short, kudos on your victory, Justin. You are uniquely fabulous.
Because I am without a good picture of the aforementioned Justin, I now add a picture stolen from facebook:
