|11:27 pm - It's About Bunnies!|
If Doctor Strange: The Oath and/or The Losers are relevant to your interests, you should check out my post from late Friday night.
Now I present yesterday's Adventure in Facebook. The set-up: remember this bunny guy on BART from last weekend? Remember Amy, whom I met at Heidi's out-of-debt party in January? You don't have to; that's why I have links. Anyway, let's get to it. I've edited out the less relevant portions of the conversation.
Amy is thinking of tattoos involving bunnies.As a bonus, Amy's friend also knows caitriona80!! Through the same channel I do, even.
Me: I rode BART with a guy with a bunny tattoo the other day. He was wearing a bunny hat. And carrying a plush carrot. And reading Watership Down.
I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.
Amy's Friend: Was he talking to a friend named Harvey?
Me: No, but his name was Levy.
Amy's Friend: Okay, this is weird and off-topic, but I think you know (of?) my ex-boyfriend. The internet is definitely as weird a place as BART.
Me: No way! That was your ex-boyfriend? He also had a stuffed giraffe in his bag, among other things. And he said he worked at T & A. That is wild.
Amy's Friend: Yeah, once you said, "Levy," I realized it had to be him!
Amy: Waaaaaaait wait wait wait. Sunil saw a guy on bart with a rabbit tattoo, and all that other stuff, and it was [my friend]'s ex-boyfriend??!?!?
Me: Exactly, Amy. I love the Internet.
Officially best story ever?!
I'm not even sure what the odds are, here. Lesson learned: one man's single-serving BART friend is another girl's ex-boyfriend.

I'm not surprised he's Amy's friend's ex-boyfriend. That's hilarious!

I don't think it beats this entry's story, but I had a weird run-in of my own on Monday night. I was at a gig, and we were just killing time talking before it, and the girl behind us started a random conversation with us (complimented my friend's hair) and then asked us "so are you guys from the internet?" completely out of the blue. We looked at each other and laughed, b/c you know, what the heck does that even mean, but it turned out she meant LJ. We exchanged names, and even stranger, she turned out to be a fanfic writer that I totally love. She said her LJ name and I just boggled. I had no idea she was British, let alone lived in London. Crazy times.
Wait, she knows Cait? Do I know Amy's friend?
Not on Facebook you don't. She knows her from OD.
I figured that's where they knew each other from. But of course not all our friends overlap there.
"Was he talking to a friend named Harvey?"
Wow. That's unbelievable! One of those, if you put it in a novel, everyone would mock you for unbelievability stories. Very cool.
