Lost in the Jungle.

You: James from Gold Coast, been here approx. four years, electrician, bearded and pierced, wearing black RVCA hat, black shirt, denim shorts. Me: Asian girl, writer, wearing a black tank, denim shorts, hip glasses. We met at a jungle-themed party where we talked about Australia's politics, good news vs. bad news (and how I like to be a purveyor of good news), how you were surprised your third visa came through, and that you're working toward your Red Seal. I kept thinking I still had time left at the party to chat with you again but time flies and you'd left before I found you again. Alas - you came with a co-worker who heard about the party from his girlfriend who may or may not actually know one of the party hosts. If you see this, perhaps a drink to celebrate your visa?

Dominic-Canada day My Skytrain Prince

You generously offered me your seat on the crowded train, opened the window, and we chatted while stuck waiting to move. You moved here two yrs ago, build luxury houses, and I know you live right by Nanaimo station. I thought you were very handsome and kind and should have asked for your number!

Smiles and a wave

We instantly caught eyes as I was walking into the Starbucks; we looked a few more times - you were already waiting for your drink as I was walking in with my friend. When you left you gave me one last beautiful smile and waved. Perhaps I can get your coffee next time?

Cute comic at 8&1/2 on Monday

You were up in the first part of the comedy show at 8&1/2 off Main. You had on a nice purple dress shirt and you talked about hitting a pedestrian that rolled off the hood of your car. You had me and my friend rolling with laughter! I wish we could have stayed around to talk to you!

Wish I'd had the guts to say hello

You were sitting in the second row centre, dressed in white and kept looking back at me sitting at the end of the row behind you. In the crush when the show wrapped up I lost you in the crowd otherwise I would have taken the chance to ask you out and share our own stories. See you at the next show? Or sooner?

You: crossing the street, me: in the Car2go

You must have been out running on the sea wall or something like that, you seemed to be so hot, sweating even, when you crossed Beach Avenue on Hornby. You were tall with dark hair and amazing eyes - mid-40's, I suspect. I was sitting there in my Car2go waiting for you to cross the street. You looked at me, then looked away...but then you looked again and smiled. I grinned back at you. If I only had my business card, I would have unrolled my window and given it to you, you beautiful man. Seeing your smile brightened my day. It would be awesome to see your smile again. Call me.

Skytrain - Commercial to Granville

I got on the skytrain at Commercial. You were sitting at the very back on the ledge drinking your coffee. We kept looking at each other and you knocked my leg by accident. I should have said hi. I got off at Granville and you waved goodbye.

You were my cabby tonight (saturday)

You picked me up when I finished my shift around Georgia and seymore at 430am. You are a total babe. You drove me to New westminster, we chatted the whole way. I never like people, and I totally liked you. Can we do that again?

You picked your nose at me, I face palmed myself.

You got off the bus a stop before mine and you gave your name, and I didn't even have the courtesy to give you mine because I was too busy being dumb. We were on the 7 together and then you evaporated into fairy dust. I'm pretty sure you exist, so I hope you see this. Hello Shyanne (Shianne?) I'm Shy Richard.

Blonde from Abbotsford hiking Panorama Ridge

You were hiking with your friend who's studying in England. I was with a group of friends. We chatted about some of the hiking trails in the Fraser Valley before you (intentionally...) slid down the mountain! Would you like to hike Mount Cheam together sometime?

My two girlfriends and I were just coming down from the top of Lynn peak. You asked if you were close to the top. You put out your hand. I took it. You were very sweet and guided me down. I wanted to ask. "What's your name?" "Do you wanna be my boyfriend?".

We danced, I pranced.

Met you on the dance floor at the Portside earlier tonight. I was wearing a blue tank top and green shorts, you were wearing a purple tshirt and had a beard. We danced for ages and you left to go to the washroom, asking if I would be there when you got back. My friends pulled me away but I wish I could have stayed. I don't have your number or even know your name but maybe we could get coffee sometime?

To the girl playing tennis at kits around 1pm

You were wearing sky-blue with purple, playing with your male friend (?). It might have been a Wilson Burn racket you were playing (well) with, which is a bonus. I was the topless fellow wearing the black hat, playing his old godfather further down the courts. If you're up for it, let's play.

Art Gallery Tuesday Night

I kept noticing you throughout the evening. At one point I saw you looking at one particular painting for a long time. It was an Italian painting depicting the death of Julius Caesar. I wanted to ask you what it was about that painting that caught your attention, but I lost my courage. Perhaps you'll see this and I'll get a chance to ask you? I was the lady with red hair wandering around. You, the tall gentleman.

Drawing in the park

Hey if you were in Jonathan Rogers Park on the 8th and Columbia corner doing some sketches and lounging in the overcast weather today, I hope you show up again so we can hang out together. You took off your hat and checked the time, looked around and stayed for at least the hour. I was chatting with a friend kiddy corner and spent time mindlessly watching you.

I quit my job

I really did. It's a line of work that I got into many years ago, and which I never...


Vancouver Public Library is the best...

The proof came two years ago in a study by researchers at Heinrich Heine University in Dusseldorf.
