For some reason, whenever the Webmaster considers how to describe Vincent, the following Family Guy quote comes to mind as an example of what Vincent House is most assuredly not.
Chris: Wow Dad, you're up early.
Of course, while we fully respect anyone who does wear jeans, a jean shirt, and a jean jacket simultaneously, it is fair to say that such a choice of wardrobe is rare. Anyway, that out of the way, here is Vincent House in the words of one of our own:
For future reference, we call ourselves Vincentians. ;) It's tough to describe 40-someodd people in one go, but I'll give it a shot. We like snowball fights, and watching bad TV on the couches in the house lounge. (Sometimes good TV is also acceptable-- there was a group watching the BBC's Robin Hood last year.) We like bizarre conversations at the house table and keeping strange hours. It may be the housing committee hard at work, but we seem to have a wide variety of majors, languages, home city/state/country... and yet we're all awesome. ;)

No About page can completely capture the essence of Vincent House, but you can make a good substitute if you take any other house, dice, sauté with 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil over medium heat until the House caramelizes, then add a drop of …water, ordinary water and go heavy on the seasoning.
