Friendly Stranger [Nov. 21st, 2006|08:10 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I went on a mission alone to find food. I parked on a side street, near an area with a lot of restaurants, and when I came back, I thought there was a ticket under my windshield.

But no, it was this....

How nice is that?

(I imagine she saw the car right after I'd parked and it was still cooling down.....)

In the past month I've received two different notes on my windshield. One was to tell me that since I'd left my lights on I could call them to get a jump (which I did), and another was to say that they'd found a sweater on the ground next to where I was parked and thought it might be mine (it wasn't). Yay for nice.

I went on a similar mission today, but found a note that said "Please park closer to the line. It's really hard to park next to you." Your note is a lot nicer.

(For some reason my spot and the one next to it aren't divided, so its hard to judge how far over to park if there isn't another car on the other side).

Speaking of nice...

My mom visited me once when I lived in California. When she got home, she realized that her necklace had fallen off her. To make it worse, she had taken her engagement ring's diamond and had it placed in the necklace as well.

She was pretty upset. When I got back in town a couple days later, I went to the airport and asked about it. Some random person had found it and turned it in.

I was surprised.

I am sorry to be intruding upon an entry as nice as this one with an off-topic comment.
It's Elena, we met last night at that WWW game.
This is a reminder of my invitation to our gig tomorrow night at Ogurets Club, we are starting at 9 pm or just a little bit later. From what I know, the place serves great food and the airconditioning, unlike many other downtown venues where we chanced to play, is efficient :)
I've send in the address of the place to Anya and Anton, hope you manage to come.
