I think I saw our very own Jimmy The Squid today.

Or, I was totally staring at a random stranger who's probably thinking I'm a creepy weirdo of the highest order.

It was fairly weird

No, never. I've met a lot of people from the forums but I guess I've always met them deliberately rather than by coincidence.

The first time we met was kinda by coincidence, since you thought I was somebody else.

Damnit we really have to be better at saying hi to each other when we're at Broadway. How many times has this happened now? You were on the down escalator and I was on the up one. I thought that was you but again I didn't say anything to avoid looking the dick if I was wrong.

One time I saw a guy that looked like you, said hi, he said hi back then we were both really awkward because we both thought we were someone else.

me neither.

this isn't really the same thing but staedtlermars's roommate was (and still is, i think) a friend of mine from guelph that i used to work with, which is pretty wacky considering they both live in edinburgh. one time i saw a picture of him on the forum dressed as scott pilgrim for halloween and it really weirded the heck out of me until i remembered what was going on and why that made sense.

Dan saw me from afar before we properly met and didn't say hello.

He also accidentally saw my balls but that was a different set of circumstances altogether.

I first met Brittany in the elevator of my dorm sophomore year. She was standing with her cousins  and I came around the corner and we both kind of looked at each other. Once we realized how we recognized each other it was awesome but for a moment I though I was crazy.

Now we are friends!

I haven't bumped into anybody because nobody lives in the same city as I do. Now that Jon is elsewhere for grad school, I don't think anyone else is even in Ohio. But that's ok, Eed is within a reasonable distance.

I bumped into Chris (GodinPants) once at a show and we made awkward conversation. It was my first sort of not really date with Max which made it doubly awkward.
Other than that I see Est and Han and Jimmy around a lot, but we all live relatively close to each other.

I used to go to Uni with GodinPants. It was a bit weird because we'd see each other around, recognise each other but still be too awkward to say hi so we'd do that little nod thing that guys do when they're too nervous to say hi to each other.

Once I was walking down the street and Fatty walked past me with her cousin (who I had met before) and didn't notice me. I sent her a message saying "I can see you..." and she replied later after I had started work or whatever I was doing. Sometimes she would come into the cafe I worked at and eat/get coffee after classes and I would try and talk while trying to not get in trouble for talking rather than working.

I was going to say hi, but it woulda been mega awkward if it wasn't you, but if I didn't say hi and it was you I was worried I'd look like a total dick.

We totally need a sort of secret gesture kind of thing. If one or the other of us uses it, we'll know it's them.

Hey, that's a thought. A QC gang sign.

Alternately we could use ASL, American Sign Language (this is much easier to look up online.)

An A handshape on the side of the cheek, near the chin, with a fast forward motion (similar to signing shy) means "slut"
"Dick" is a "d" handshape tapping the nose.

I've seen dopplegangers. Lots of them. There's a woman at my job who looks a bit like an older, shorter Linds (mostly though, she is older and shorter than Linds), I saw a Rachel on Friday at the bus station, and I've also seen dopplegangers for Jace (though it was a Ladyjace), Lunchy (ask Jon about that one), and Julia.

Plus there was that time I hung out with some of you guys for reals.

I live in a city with a doppleganger Tommy and Gene. It is really really weird. I have been seeing them around the city for like two years and it never stops being weird.

I wish I lived in a city with more people to be all oh hai with. The one person that lives here I have not met.

Oh yeah, true.

We went to see Dropkick Murphys a few years back, and on the train back to Boston, we saw someone who looked like you, but less adorable and awesome. She was referred to as "ugly Lunchy".

  • This is my happening and it freaks me out!

I once started talking to a guy on the forums via PM and later via AIM who turned out to be the childhood best friend of my best friend, who used to live in his building.

We all reunited and played in a band together, briefly.

He never posted here much and still doesn't.

It seems that few forumites live 'round these parts. I know there are several in DC but that's sort of far from little Owings Mills over here. Also I'm still kind of new.

I was going to say that I need to meet more people from the internet but that's slightly weird. But I do need to make more friends and I don't drink so like my only other option is okcupid and all they want is the no pants dance.

Place-holder post for my generic Jewish stereotype quip once I've had enough coffee to word it correctly.

I dunno if he was Jewish, but regardless his gf wasn't and she was just as bad. The only reason I remember him is because I kept thinking, "Dude is not cool enough to look like Gene."
