Firstly, I would like to say that I am feeling a great deal of pressure writing this because it directly follows the very popular and awesome elephant paintings post. A+ Brian. The internet gives you a 4.0 gpa.

Anyway, I wanted to share something that approaches being as heartwarming as painting pachyderms. In the fall, this guy named Patrick Moberg made a website called “nygirlofmydreams.com” after falling for a girl he saw fleetingly on the subway. He posted this:

Note the completely charming illustration! He got a whole bunch of responses and his website actually became fairly popular. SO popular, that magically, a co-worker of the girl read it and told her about it. You can see the message Patrick posted on the site after they first met. She is an intern from Australia working at a magazine in New York. And apparently they are now dating!

There was a bit of a media frenzy after all of this happened and apparently the magazine the girl was working at featured other intern profiles in lame “meet the other possible girls of your dreams!” features articles. However, I choose to ignore that on the grounds that “the internet does magical things!” is much more interesting to talk about.
