Pepper Abbott describes Matt Court
Oh yeah! Matt is my preceptor for theology one-oh-one. He's funny. He wears these wild ties. Really, like, psychedelic patterns and bright colors. I love them. And he's, like, totally into his hair. I mean, he gets into the subjects; he'll actually teach and lead discussion, and but when he's waiting for someone to answer a question, he'll run his fingers through his hair. I'm sorry I'm laughing so hard--that just always hits me. He's downright gorgeous, though. He obviously stays fit--I mean, that's not real common for a theology guy, right? Beautiful smile. Brown eyes, blond hair. It's even feathered! Oh god, I'm sorry, there I go again. I really like Matt! Why can't I stop laughing at him?
But, yeah, he does care about the stuff. He sure has me thinking. No, I don't think I'm going to change who I think God is based on what he has said--and he has some pretty wild ideas--but, I'm thinking about things I'd never thought of before.
Oh, and I was so nervous, I mean, like, really nervous about my first theology paper. It was just a short one, like five pages I think, and double-spaced, so, you know, not long or anything. And he was really nice to me and he actually read it and gave me some ideas about it so I could before I turned it in. I mean, before I even turned it in the first time! Wow. That was, like, so nice. I mean, wasn't it?
But, you know, it is a class. Oh! Did you know he lives in my dorm? I, like, I just found that out last night! Wild!
Arthur Paul Edwards describes Matt Court
I've met Matt few times. Good guy. Can't say I've had a whole lot of discussions with him, but I've been to his place lots of times. I think that's the first time in my life I've known someone to get a beer delivery to a dorm room. But, it has been awhile since college. I don't know what they do now. But, he seems pretty solid. I suppose if it was up to me to decide whether or not to deliver beer to his room, I would decide it would be fine.
The good part, though, about going up to his place for cheap beer night is the museum. Every time I go I hope they have a new acquisition. I think I could spend hours up there. You've seen it, right? You really gotta go. Actually, Matt told me how he got it started. He was in this antique store in Louisville and found five of the original pieces there. He got the idea for a museum just because he was amazed that such gaudy stuff could be both attractive and useful in its religiosity. He decided on the criteria for the museum then, bought only those pieces that fit the criteria, and set it up as soon as he got back to campus. Now, I had to like that. Good guy.
