later in the afternoon, alex and i went running in the 80 degrees spring temperature. coming back to the office, we passed the for eyes optical store. located on a street corner, the glass walls afford a clear view of the reception desk inside, where usually two cute bespectacled brunettes tend to the customers, and it goes without saying that i am in love with them. i often wonder if they get paid to wear glasses (even if they have perfect vision), knowing that some people have a soft spot for pretty myopic girls. on this late friday afternoon, there was only one girl, wearing a b&w striped shirt, whom i endearingly referred to as "the referee girl." she didn't have glasses on but could've been wearing contacts.
i went straight to star market to get some groceries after work. walking back home with two bags of food, i looked across the street and saw someone who looked familiar, b&w striped shirt, cute brunette... ah! it's the referee girl! she lives in my neighborhood! we looked at each other for a split second, and i could've sworn there was the glimmer of mutual recognition, although i'm not sure she remembers where she's seen me before. i was so excited by this chance encounter that i had to tell someone, so i called alex on his cell phone to let him know the news (he was on his way home to providence via commuter train).

by the time we got to brooklyn, it was close to midnight. we drove by a theatre and both decided we were too tired to try and go see van helsing tonight. instead, we went back to john's place, where deanna was gone for the weekend, attending to some bridal shower duties. john showed me his bootleg dvd copy of toy story, i couldn't believe the quality. i demonstrated computer to computer wireless networking. and finally, we entertained ourselves by reading the new york craiglist's casual encounters and missed connections until 3am. anyone know moneesa from queens village?
