As I was walking to Coffee Bean at Irvine Spectrum, a girl from greenpeace stood like Nitro in a narrow walkway.
It bothers me when strangers approach me.
Even getting greeted at clothes stores bother me. I knew this girl from greenpeace was going to come up to me even though I was making it very obvious that I was trying to avoid her. She charged at me with a determined smile on her face and said,
“You like whales, right?”
I replied, “No, Sorry.” And walked away.
Afterwards, I thought, “Great, now someone thinks I don’t like whales.”
I’ve been to Irvine Spectrum enough times this week that I’m sure my butt print is in the middle of the bench in coffee bean. Driving down isn’t so bad, except that I have to pass the giant A at Angel Stadium. It bothers me. There’s just something eerie about seeing unusually large man-made things from so far away, and Anaheim has plenty of them.. like, Matterhorn at Disneyland, the Water Tower that is seen off the 5, and this thing I’m pretty sure I saw next to Angel Stadium.
On an unrelated note, I saw the google car that takes pictures of the road for the street view in google maps. Maybe I’ll be in google maps now. Google’s image of my house must be pretty old because my grandfather’s car is still parked outside my house. It has to be at least 4 years old.
When I left Coffee Bean in Irvine Spectrum, I took a longer route to the parking lot because I wanted to avoid certain people. Unfortunately, a second group of greenpea(s) were blocking my return path. I was spotted by one at about 100 feet, and he began to approach me and reached me even though, I was walking very obviously in a way to try to avoid him. He greeted me with a friendly hi and said,
“hey, you’ve got a few moments of time to spare, right?”
I replied, “No, sorry. I don’t like whales.”
He looked at me flabbergasted.
