There's something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
Like suddenly something someone contrives
Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing

There's this girl. I've been seeing her around campus quite a bit. First time of significance was at the WWPI meeting for Novemberfest security. She was the only girl on the security staff [aside from Katrina, but she's a WWPI exec]. And of course, I saw her during Novemberfest itself. She didn't really do anything. But then again, neither did I. Security was, on the whole, damned useless. But she was just so cute. [Insert sigh here.]

I guess you can see where this is going. ... No, I am not stalking her. But today [or rather, yesterday], when a friend of Dale's from high school came to visit him, we [the visitor, Dale, Chad, and myself] went to the dining hall. And there she was. When I saw her, there was a moment of eye contact. ... I think I freaked her out. I just couldn't stop staring at her. And she caught me a couple of times. But I can't read people's emotions on sight; she could have been reciprocating [not bloody likely]. So I'm guessing I freaked her out.

I was late to my one o'clock class because I saw her again on my way. I don't think she saw me this time. She was walking... then, all of a sudden, bolted toward some guy. So... I guess she's dating him. Yeah. I'm a defeatist. But yet, I stood there in the parking lot and watched. I can not stop looking at this girl.

I know it's bad that I'm so obsessed with this girl without ever having talked to her. So my obsession is primarily based on appearance. I could hate her personality, for all I know. It's not exactly a rare occurrence. I don't get along well with most people. Worst yet, I don't even know her name. Looking at the list of WWPI DJs, I've narrowed it to: Erica Abrahamsen, Kerry Lee Anderson, Kate Mirtle, or Catherine Raposa. Does anyone know her? She's kind of short [5'2" to 5'4", I'm guessing], dark hair with highlights, kinda tan... I know it's vague, but I'm pretty bad at describing people, too. But if you can help me narrow down who exactly it is I've got this crush on, I'd be much obliged.
