Kit and caboodle
My friend Kit has moved to Cambridge! I bumped into him out of the blue at lunchtime, turns out he's at Queens' (i.e. 2 mins' walk from my work) doing a PGCE.

We'd sort of lost touch (largely because he still claims he doesn't know how to do email -- I will have to teach him, and maybe sort of accidentally introduce him to LiveJournal at the same time) & I knew he'd been thinking of coming here but I (rightly) figured that if he did I'd bump into him sooner or later. At 6'8½" he's pretty difficult to miss.

Lovely to see him again though. And anybody who's willing to kneel down in the middle of the street just to be the right height to give me a hug (he's only a couple of inches shorter than me when he's kneeling) gets my vote.

Excellent, I'd wondered what became of him :)

He sounds lovely. What a nice chum to have re-found. And he liked finding you, too. Two good things!

He is indeed lovely. And he has pretty waistcoats and shiny swords, which has got to be a good thing.

I went out with him for $time while I was at Oxford, and there was awkwardness for a while after we split up, but I think that's all gone now. But we did try (and to some extent succeed) in a messed-up way to look after each other when we were both in a rotten state, and I have a very big soft spot for him (which is just as well, cos there's so much of him he wouldn't fit in a little soft spot).

He is a sweetie, & I'm really glad to have found him again. I just wish he'd learn to use email, then I wouldn't find it so hard to keep in touch with him inbetweentimes! 8-)

Kit? I remember him as a very pleasant chap: must see if the pnit of b33r can be had sometime.

I've never met the guy, to my knowledge, but you already have me thinking he's way cool. Excellent reconnection.
