I really do have the craziest small world stories happen to me in this city.
Anyway, for the most part, this is going to be ripped straight out of an email I wrote to Meghan recently.
While riding my bus on the way to school the last few weeks, almost everytime I get on, I notice this quite fashionable, extraordinarily cute girl who apparently has a class at the same time I do. The bus is always super packed though and she’s usually at one end while I’m at the other.
So I’m really not sure how I notice her out of all the other people that are packed on the bus, but she continually catches my eye though. I’ve always wanted to say something to her, but I feel kind of strange being a random bus guy and saying something like, “HEY! YOU SMELL PUUURTY!”
So, two of my housemates are moving out at the end of this month! We post an ad on craigslist and get a load of responses. We setup some appointments for this past week. On one of the nights, a housemate left to go down the hill and pickup two ladies who were interested (their lease apparently expires soon and they are friends/roommates right now). They walk in the door and I look up.
One of the girls is the one I always see on the bus! I think my mouth hit the floor. Of course in my infinite smoothness, I said “WHOA! I TOTALLY RECOGNIZE YOU!” (Thankfully I stayed away from the “you smell pretty” line).
She said, “you do?” I thought it wasn’t a good idea to admit that I’m a bus stalker so I just said that she just looks really familiar for some reason.
So we showed them the house and they definitely seemed interested (price, proximity to school and the fact that they said the rooms were “good sized” – which we’ve never gotten before). We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks, but I’m sure I’ll probably see her on the bus again soon.
In other news: I aquired the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album “Stadium Arcadium” through rather nefarious means awhile ago.. Anyway, I’ve finally had a chance to listen to it and I am really enjoying it! It’s especially interesting since I’ve never been all that hot on the RHCP. They have some good tunes in my opinion, but I never got all that into them. But this is definitely one of the best albums I’ve heard so far this year in my opinion! Definitely excellent.
Alright… a week of classes left and I am done! YES! Then I begin to contemplate what I’m going to do with my life. Yikes!
