    OK, so posting a thread about this in the forum is unlikely to produce any results whatsoever, but I figure it's worth a try.

    Last night at the Spoon gig in Shepherd's Bush (Which was fucking awesome) I met, sang and danced a little bit with a very pretty American girl during the gig. She introduced herself as Mary; I introduced myself as Lee.

    After the gig, we met outside the 02 and chatted for a little bit. I thanked her for making the experience all the more enjoyable, and Mary commented on how impressed she was by my knowledge of the lyrics to all the songs that were played. And with that, she walked away. I wanted to ask for some form of contact detail, but I chickened out.

    Now, what I'm asking is if any of the members know this lovely young lady, or if you're Mary herself, reading this message, please reply to this thread, and hopefully we can work from there.

    Somebody already told the National joke to me on Twitter. At first I didn't get it; that's how dense I am.

    I really hope you end up finding a lead. A similar thing happened to me, I had a discussion with a girl about basketball and she left with friends before I could man up and ask for her number.

    That sucks, Zman. I don't know about you, but those thoughts of what could of been are nagging and incessant.

    If you don't mind me asking: did you attempt to find out her name via the web or whatever? Basically I'm fishing for advice here.

    Well, I've posted an ad on Missed Connections, trawled through every possible Mary on Facebook, looked for her on Twitter and I'm now absolutely stumped. Every possible way to find her has produced no positive results.

    At the risk of sounding like some kind of Twilight reading emo-bitch, this girl has captured my imagination in a big way. Mary is the only thing in my mind right now and she's refusing to budge. That old "What could of been" feeling is like an itch I can't scratch away, and it's making me fucking crazy.

    Apart from walking around Shepherd's Bush, in the hope that she'll serendipitously cross my path once more, I'm at a loss as what to do next.

    No, it was on my college campus and without even knowing a name really I just gave up on it. Sometimes stuff just doesn't work out. Best bet for you is hope Spoon comes around again and you see her at the show.

    Yeah. I don't know if I can wait, like, two years or whatever :]

    Ok, in a last ditch attempt I'm about to do something that's potentially very silly and embarrassing. Nothing illegal, though, I assure you.

    Oh, wow. You mean business! Maybe you can convince Spoon's web elf to post a notice on their splash page. Hope you find her!

    That's a pretty good idea, Monkfish. How would one go about doing such a thing?

    The Twitter account has been suspended for God's knows what reason. Waiting for a reason from the Twitter peeps.
