More Observations...

I'm going to miss people-watching at the end of my internship in a few weeks. I've enjoyed it immensely, and I love sharing it with my readers.

...There's an errand-running company that has a car I've seen a few times. I have a sneaking suspicion that they might be fans of the movie The Princess Bride because the company is called As You Wish.

...The guy who sat in front of me a few days ago sort of looked like Ian McKellen in the scene from LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring when Gandalf rides up to Frodo. However, this guy didn't have the sweet robe. He did have a sweet hat, though.

...The older (maybe late fifties?) lady who is often on my return bus home is usually playing Angry Birds. I first noticed this a few weeks ago...when I was cross-stitching. She never seems to get angry while playing, unlike most Angry Birds players I know. (And I'm not saying 50 is old; as my dad will be 60 on his next birthday, and I've had relatives live well into their 90s.)

...The GoogleMaps car is quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life. It's pretty much a car that has Google written all over it and has a ball of cameras on a pole affixed to it. (I realize this description sucks, so just look at the picture).
...Chipotle's line for food will grow exponentially between noon and twelve ten (as in, going from ten people to at least thirty-five, if not more). At this point, it's best just to go to a different place. There are lots of awesome places around where I work... Yet, I wind up going to the same places every week.
...Starbucks' baristas will start to know your order when you go enough. I realized this the other day when the barista just asked me what size caramel macchiato I wanted that day. (Which is even more proof of my caramel addiction... What can I say? They're delicious!)

...I've also recently realized that I've never seen the shorts-wearing lawyer (how does it take this long to fix a building's AC unit?) carry anything with him on the bus except money for his fare. I would assume he has a wallet and cell phone, too. I'm also surprised he doesn't have a bus pass. It seems like he rides the same bus every day, so why not get one? Yet another mystery of public transportation.

He does smoke, though. My respect level for him dropped some when I discovered this. Is that awful? Probably, but when you see how it affects those you love, it's different. I could date a casual drinker, but never someone who smokes.

...I still think that one of the guys I work with looks like Damon Lindelof from behind. Seriously.

  1. HAHA oh man I LOVE people watching. One time I had a 12 hour layover in the Dallas airport and tweeted all my people watching observations.

    "....they might be fans of the movie The Princess Bride because the company is called As You Wish."

    That made me LOL.
