Game of Thrones, drunken idiot and fun bus conversations...

Ok, this is less of a "missed connection" and more of a "I bloody well wish we had more time to interact" kind of post. You're an actress who was reading Game of Thrones and sat down beside me coming from East Van toward Burnaby... you got on the bus at the same stop as a belligerent, drunk and obnoxious fat dude who kept yelling on the back of the bus "...who wants to party?? You?? YOU???" lol. I had to ask you about GoT, as I'm a huge fan (I'm sure that was obvious). I would love to share minds more about that... and whatever our curious minds might point us toward. As you left the bus, you mentioned actress and I told you musician, then you introduced yourself and I responded in kind. Your name start with T and mine with D.... If you see this, I hope you reply. You're fucking awesome.

Polite Lass after the Bus

You were running to catch the #50. By all appearances, it looked like you were heading from or to yoga. I was standing in front of the bus shelter, waiting for the #84, and stepped aside so that you could zip past. As you passed by, you delighted me with a courteous “Thank you” – that makes you someone I’d like to know better. Well, I’m glad you made it, and I hope you had a good time! You: Tall, curly-haired, brunette with a yoga mat and distinct I ♥ Dublin cloth bag. Me: Black hair, glasses, and windbreaker. If you see this, please reach out. I would enjoy seeking the craic with you sometime!

Cutest laugh

I was sitting near you at quiz show last night and found your laugh to be so intoxicating. I've never thought that hearing someone laugh so wholeheartedly would leave me so smittened. When I looked over to see you I could hardly believe it - you're the same girl I see on the #3 bus occasionally. Always dressed impressively you were wearing a shirt with little cats all over it. I would love to get to know you better if you ever want to grab a coffee.

En Route to the Sylvia Hotel - I should have walked too.

I first noticed you around the Olympic Village station, we both got off at Yaletown Roundhouse. All of a sudden you were next to me on the sidewalk and stated a conversation. When I stopped to catch the bus going down Davie, you said you were going to keep walking. We each said "see you later" as you departed. It felt so natural that I nearly forgot that I didn't know you. I now don't know how, but I hope that I see you later.

Beautiful girl on the Skytrain

I asked you if that was the 106 bus that stopped at the stop I was waiting at, even though I knew it was, and I just thought you were so beautiful. We got on the skytrain together and felt so good when I noticed you smile at me. I wanted that dude sitting next to you to get off so I could sit next to you, but he never did and I never worked up the courage to talk to you :( You smiled and waved as I got off the train, and I wanted to go back into the train to ask you for your phone number but I never did, and I'm kicking myself for not doing that. Wherever you are, Pretty skytrain girl, you definitely made my day.

they say nice people smile, but yours....

is a true implement of torture. Do you always send such missiles of warmth from behind the wheel of your silver Transit as you wait for the light to turn green, or did you feel some allure to my organic and friendly bush boy charm? All I will say is come garden, on haida gwaii, forever.

oak bus #17, loves to cook!

You asked me where to catch the 17, I was returning from Michaels to buy last minute cake things. Lot of randomness while you really hoped there would be alcohol at the party you were heading to! You took my number, and where did you go? Curiosity for these random intriguing bus meets.

Bright eyes on the rush hour bus

As the 240 Vancouver pulled up to your stop at Fell Ave on Tuesday evening, I noticed you in the crowd. You sat down at the front, wearing a rainjacket in a lovely green and drinking from a yellow water bottle. We made sustained eye contact twice before I got out at the next stop. I'd love to get to know you over tea.

Belonging to the Universe, Science and Theology

You were reading a book that made me curious. I showed you something i had written in my journal. You said "thank you". I wish i had stayed on the bus for another stop to connect with you and ask you what you think of the book. Right as i stepped off the bus, something came to my mind that i would love to share with you.

Scout and Bax at Jericho

We met early this morning at Jericho...Baxter was digging a hole and Scout was enjoying a large stick. I was too busy watching the dogs to notice your friendliness and laugh right away. You loved on Bax and we talked dogs and animal control. You had a septum piercing and great smile. Would love to talk dogs and more over a drink sometime.

No.7 Bus Driver

You used to drive the no. 7 bus that stopped at Adanac at 8.11am on the way to Nanaimo Station. I was the blonde woman who was always late and in too much of a rush to say hi but you brightened up my Monday mornings. One morning you'd disappeared and my Mondays haven't been the same since.

At the bus stop on Nanaimo and Broadway, I asked is it was alright if I had smoke....

We were waiting for the number 7 dunbar around 12:15pm. This was at Nanaimo and Broadway. I asked you if it was alright I had a smoke....and I said it is weed. You said it was alright and I offered you a toke. You accepted had a couple puffs and then the bus came. We chatted on the bus, you said you work at Moxies and only worked an hour. I said I am a sous chef. We exchanged names. You said you had some beers with co workers and I said I am dying for a beer after a bit of a rough day at work. Anyways you got off at your stop, you have such a sweet smile and would love to smoke the rest of that joint sometime! Hope you read this.....

Rock Enthusiast on the Bus

I SAW YOU...on the bus on February 16th heading home from work. You caught my attention when you started talking to the person next to you about cooling rates and phaneritic crystals. I feel the need to learn more. Will you help me? I want to understand the relationship between location, cooling rates and crystal sizes. You seemed willing to talk then, will you reply to me now? What about composition? Are all igneous rocks made out of the same material? Maybe you remember me. I moved closer to you on the bus to try to learn more, but was too intimidated to talk to you in person. I heard you use the words magma and lava. Aren't these the same? I noticed you talking about color index, but couldn't figure out what you meant. Who is this Bowen guy you referred too? What did he discover about igneous rocks? Are all igneous rocks found in the same formations? I've heard that Hawaii is volcanic and here in Vancouver rocks are plutonic. What's the difference? What features might I see here that are different in Hawaii? You mentioned hiking on Mt. Baker. Isn't that a volcano? Is it dangerous? Tell me something about volcano types. This seems like so much information, I would love to hear how it all fits together. I'm hoping you write back to me, and if things go really well, maybe we can meet in person so you can teach me more. Hoping for a response and eager to learn, Iggy

Hottie at Our community bikes on Main.

I saw you at Our community bikes on Main st. You greeted me with a smile at the door; after that I couldn't find the right moment to talk to you, you were busy working. You were wearing a Nirvana hoodie and a red corset under. Coffee?

bus stop @Cordova and Seymour

I was at the bus stop and you seem to just been out of a bar, you were with a male friend and you both were very drunk, you approached me and ask where I was from, when I said Mexico, you start to say that you had been to Guadalajara and you eat guacamole, I thought you were very cute but you were too drunk, so I get nervous, coffee maybe?

Beautiful blonde on the 25

We locked eyes more than a few times on the 25 this evening (Valentines Day) after you got on around Fraser or Main. You had beautiful blonde hair, and might have been wearing a green sweater or jacket... I digress. I was a tall brown haired guy in a camel coat and exercise clothing. You turned around and stared at me out the window as the bus pulled away after I got off - coffee sometime? :)

99 BLine - YOU: blackhatted, redhead, charming eavesdropper

Boarding the 99BLine at Commercial/Broadway this morning just after 11am, my friend and I were the last to scramble on because I was loading my bike. You were sitting in the articulated-hips section of the bus, and as we walked past you, I was laughing and said something to my friend about how I wasn't *that* hungover. You said something complimentary and I told you how much nicer you are than my friend, and then I commended you for such a lovely black and grey hat. Sadly you got off well before the end of the line -- clearly I was hungover enough that my reaction time was tooooo slooooow to ask you for your number. Want to go somewhere and eavesdrop together? I like your chutzpah. [Me: black jacket + toque, grey tights, clunky snowboots, hangover glasses]

You Dropped your phone.

Hey. You slipped in the snow at the crosswalk. I noticed your cell and ran it back to you as you were getting onto the bus. I wanted to introduce myself but I didn't really have the time to while the bus was leaving, sorry about that.

Wheelchair on a snowy night bus.

When we finally arrived at the door, he asked if I remembered your name. I did. We had both been dancing, you at Calabash, me at Astoria. You and two transit staff hefted the wheelchair to the roadway while I helped him navigate the snow and slush. You were then reluctant to get back on the bus, showing genuine concern for two strangers. Not something that happens every day in Vancouver.  We had a bit of an adventure getting Harold and his electric wheelchair safely home through the snowy streets. I'd love to tell you about it. Coffee?

Beautiful Eyes over Coffee Cup

I was standing at the bus stop at Granville & Georgia when I looked back... and saw your gorgeous eyes staring into mine quite intensely, and holding my gaze, which was full of fire I'm sure as I was having quite the day :) You did so as you were taking a sip of your to-go coffee, and you had a london drugs shopping bag as well as being dressed impeccably and very beautiful! Coffee?

I saw you roma the tomato paste aisle

I saw you at Buy Low Foods on kingsway and my cheeks turned into cherry tomatoes when we were both looking for tomato paste. Then I waved as you biked by afterwards while I was waiting for the bus. Was it hot house in there or were we flirting?
