Things about David Foster Wallace that I found endearing while reading these essays:

1. Deathly afraid of chickens.
2. Wore size 11 Keds.
3. Placed 3rd in a Men's Legs Competition on board a Caribbean Cruise.
4. Was excellent at ping-pong, but was beaten by a 9yr old at chess.
5. Used the word creepy too much.
6. Compared Andre Agassi to the devil.
7. His endnotes have endnotes.
8. Described himself as 'semi agoraphobic.'
9. Deathly afraid of amusement park rides. (These fears go on ad infinitum)
10. Paranoid about getting sucked into the same Caribbean Cruise's high suction toilet.

The only borderline unforgivable things were calling Kyle MacLachlan a potato-faced nerd and for that awful book review of a book I have never and will never read.
