    I'm in sunny Las Vegas right now,

    the Mecca for people watching. I got in last night and spent a few hours having a great time watching the whirlwind of life and excitement that is Vegas.

    I just really like to look at people,

    see how their facial features are completely different from my own or others around them. I'm fascinated by people, especially those that are able to express themselves with their style. I wish I were able to feel free and dress and look the way I want, but I'm too insecure...

    Goodie goodie.... I see you over there,

    oh that may sound a lil creepy. I have done this for quite sometime. It's an inner curiosity of how the people around me work...Their mannerisms, how they respond to those around them...I find I am very intrigued

    Sometimes I like to listen on other peoples

    conversations. Sometimes I listen so much that I know their names, their phone numbers, etc. It makes me feel like a stalker. I do it when I am at restaurants and i hear what people are saying from far away tables.

    I like watching people because you can learn a lot about a person just by really paying attention to them.  I watch people everywhere all the time.  But then it has been drilled into me by my dad.  He always said, "Always be aware of your surroundings."  And I am.  I pay...

    Went out for food this evening

    and while waiting for a table it was interesting seeing the different reactions people give off when they are given a wait time. It was only about 20 minutes. Most give the look of slight disappointment and end up solemnly agreeing to have their name taken. There are an...

    Alright there's a pretty attractive guy I see

    after school everyday and I'm a decent looking girl. Obviously I can't help but to stare at him and I've noticed that he looks at me too. He'll look away when we make eye contact and we stare each other down everyday. Is he staring because he noticed that I stare at him all the...

    Sunday Afternoon

    I took a Sunday stroll on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I walked through the park, observing the young skateboarders. Across from the skateboarders, I observed the old homeless men sitting on benches, watching me as I watched them. As I crossed the street, I noticed a young...

    And not just visually,

    I am also quite observant of their demeanor. Online, I have my own way of observing netiquette. There's a lot of people to meet in this world, but hey, I am not going to waste my time, breath, and energy socializing with anyone who will take away moments of my joy and happiness...

    I drive a gravel truck all over our city

    and because I am really high up, I can see into everyone's car. Many people have their phones on their laps, or tucked in between their legs. I think it's just a matter of time and practice that people will become better at texting and driving. The thing is...people complain...

    It's sometimes funny to watch some people doing

    something the wrong way but doing it confidently. Even more funny, they succeeded.

    "Is he married?" "I wonder

    People are weird as hell,

    and more heartless than we all believe. In the Bay Area where homeless outnumber the wealthy, people are amazingly terrible. We're all a bad day away from those circumstances. Judge not my fellow people watchers!

    I usually watch people at the gym it's

    when the bodies are most active. I watch them run, walk, jump, and bend. Everyone has their own unique swag or movement. I've tried to mimic but I don't think it comes out the same. You can also see the confidence and insecurities of that person by looking at the posture and...

    He wanted to tell her how much he preferred to

    look at her, that only by watching could he memorize her, and take her and possess her. He did not know how to explain that he could not touch better or more fully with his hands than he could with his eyes. Seeing encompassed all at once; a touch was limited to one spot at a...

    Airports are the best.

    I play the celebrity game. Find someone and figure out which celebrity they most resemble. Bets is when you see an actual celebrity.

    There are all kinds of folks in this world,

    and if I can get a glimpse, I will. lol. If I go somewhere, I will usually position myself so I have a great view. From Venice Beach to London, U.K. If I am out, I like to take a look at all the different personalities traversing my field of view.

    I like to gaze up at passing aircraft,

    and think about all the people onboard... I like that I'm watching them and thinking about them, and they're completely unaware. I wonder how many of them are looking down at the lights of my house, and whether they speculate about the people below them.

    I like watching dynamics between people,

    how people interact with the person who's serving them or their, I'm assuming, partners/kids/parents. Some times it's fascinating or frightening or butt *** funny. Generally entertaining.

    People tell stories. Knowing their stories

    The best places to watch people

    for me are the airports and railway stations. I can sit there all day long, see people coming and leaving for their destinations...some there to bid goodbyes, some excited to take the journey, others bored and tired! For that time, I start feeling like I do not exist in that...
