    Living Room

    While I do enjoy people watching (people do the weirdest stuff when they think no one is looking!), I find it awkward. Especially when someone catches you. Some of my favorite places to people-watch is on the bus, and at the mall. It's much easier to do on the bus 'cause it's the...

    Wonder What They Are Like?

        One of My favorite pasttimes is people watching.  I can easily spend hours watching my fellow human beings as they walk, talk, argue, laugh and display emotions right out there in front of me as if they were on stage and I was their audience.  It is...

    Have Been A People Watcher For A Long Time.

    I have enjoyed watched people for a long time. When I was stationed in Italy I used to take my children on a Train ride once a month.  It was so they could have experiences and memories.  We would take the Locale to Florence and walk around and look at the sites and when we...

    People Are So Fascinating!

    Ever since I was a young girl, I've been fascinated by people and human behavior.  I remember in the 2nd grade, walking a neighborhood child to school who was slightly 'retarded' (that was the word we used way back then).  She and her family were strange and intriguing...

    Humans Are Amazing

    Now that I think about it...this is rather stalkish, even. Well, whatever, once in a while, it's nice to sit in New York or someone and just watch people go. Imagine that every single person we see go by-they all have their own little adventure, their own destination, their own...

    Starbucks & the Mall

    Those are two places that I like to go to and sit and watch people walk by.  I like to guess what they are doing and what they may be on their way to do.  I also like to pretend I'm the Fashion Police, and critique what people are wearing and laugh about it.

    It stunts me so much.

    This thing we call people-watching. All it takes is to sit down somewhere, and watch people go by. Watch all their differences. You can someones mood JUST by watching them closely. Our world takes for granted some of the things we can do. Like this, this is one good example. We...

    Picking Your Nose In Public

    On the subway ride home from work, I sat beside a guy who kept picking his nose. He stunk, too. It got me thinking... what other gross things do virtually all people do from time-to-time? Here's my analysis.

    People Watching

    I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone...

    I like to go outside in the town and just look at everyone and what they're doing. I also like to make up little lives for them, so when you see a family for four for example, you've got the angry dad who hates his kids and wants to go home and watch the football game on his big...

    I sometimes go to the mall,

    sit on a bench, and watch people walk by. I've been known to sit for an hour of two and just sit and watch. I even developed a character that walks and talks a certain way. I give credit to this by watching people.

    Almost As Much

    As I enjoy watching my fiancé. I get mesmerised by him. I find it difficult to look away from him, he is just so wonderful and perfect. I think I have memorised every word he has ever said and every move he makes. Ok yes, I'm absolutely obsessed with him to be honest.
