A Visit From My Brother-In-Law

My husband is the oldest of five kids (4 boys, 1 girl).  The youngest brother is now enrolled at the university I work at, and he just came by my office to visit me.  Only was was tied up in a meeting and didn't get to see him.  How cute is that?  That he came to visit his old sister-in-law at work?  His nickname is Dirty D, but don't let that fool you.  He is ADORABLE.  He's one of those sweet, sensitive, artistic types.  He's the only boy in the family that isn't into sports.  Or cars/engines.  Or any of that loud, aggressive, boy stuff.  Instead, he's into art, books, and film.  His nieces (my girls) LOVE him, and he always plays with them and pays tons of attention to them when he sees them.  He chases them, tickles them, swings them around, and they giggle and squeal until they're all out of breath.  He's so great.  Plus, he totally looks like Joseph Fiennes.
(This picture is of Joseph Fiennes, but I swear... he looks just like that.  Trust me.)

Sorry to disappoint, ladies.  He's taken.  Well....semi-taken.  We're hoping he'll propose to his girlfriend of 3 years soon (she's a keeper!).  Otherwise, if I had a younger, single friend I would be setting them up in a heartbeat.

If only all my in-laws were like him.  He's a total gem in family of mental patients.  But that's a whole other post.

ETA:  He just stopped by again to see me before his next class.  He said he new it was my office when he saw the picture of Dwight Schrute on the filing cabinet.

I never thought of him looking like Joseph Finnes, but you're right - there is a striking resemblance.

I'm eating a Sprinkles cupcake RIGHT NOW, by the way. Mmmmmm. Believe the hype.

Joseph definitely got the non-creepy looks in the family. (I'm looking at you, Ralph.)
