No, really, I'm not a stalker
Had my first copyediting class last night. The instructor has been in publishing for a long time and currently works as a freelance copyeditor. It looks like it's going to be a good class, and I think the instructor will be a good source of information about the business. I'm not sure how exciting the bits will be where she goes over grammar and punctuation, since I feel that I already have a decent grasp of those. I imagine she will be able to give some pointers on common pitfalls, though, so that might be useful.

I had found out that someone I know only in online form has a Thursday class at the same place starting 15 minutes after my class ends. Her email suggested that we might see each other there sometime. I suggested that we could meet just outside the building or posisbly for a quick cup of hot chocolate next door. I didn't hear back, but I figured I could stand around for 15 minutes just in case.

So I stood there under my umbrella after my class for 15 minutes, watching the people come in for classes. Every female that walked by, I asked myself "Could that be her?" I got looked at by just about every one of those females, so there were about 10 times that I was thinking it was her. And every time I was trying to come up with something to say that wouldn't soundy creepy or stalkerish. Anyway, no one stopped and said "Kevin?" to me.

I think I could make a good creepy stalker, if I were inclined that way. But, really, I'm not.

*wince*

I meant to look for you, honest, but a variety of intervening circumstances intervened, which are not interesting so I won't get into them, and I never got a chance, and...and...

...sorry!

How about next week? As in an actual plan instead of "maybe I'll see you", as in 7:45pm in front of Burdick's, as in see you then?

7:45 in front of Burdick's next week sounds like a plan. I might be a minute or two late if my class doesn't get out on time.

Now I'm extremely curious. Were you one of the people that walked by me?

And, really, I didn't mind standing around. It was quite a pleasant night.
