This is an awesome story... but I'm worried for the ending..
A dude from New Zealand and a girl from DC... both in Hong Kong. She's a damsel in distress crying on some stairs, he consoles her.. and helps her find her friends. Then she leaves him with her name, hometown, and "find me."
He's on the hunt to find her, and we've obviously gotta help him!
Looking at the Facebook group, it seems like there are some people who have located her family and maybe her Facebook profile... but still nothing from HER. So that's where we come in, right?! Maybe you are her. Maybe you know her. Maybe you can at least get her in touch with him directly so it's a little Christmas miracle!
So spread the story, tell everyone you know, and let's help them fall in love cuz it's obviously fate [even if she may have a boyfriend]!!

Well, he found her... /the world found her. You've gotta read what he said on Facebook. [or try here] It's touching. It's inspiring. And I wanna punt every person who says he's creepy or a weirdo. He was just having fun, taking chances, and not expecting it to be this crazy. I applaud him. I admire him. I hope he teaches us all something- to go for it... no matter what "it" is.
If it's not working for you, here's what he said:
What started as a ripple
and rolled into a wave
ended as a tsunami that crashed on Katie and aaaaall of the Katies in the DC area
Wasn't my intention but it did happen
So regarding that I'll be apologising for a little while
Katie was found
However with 3,000+ people suddenly messaging/searching she went to ground
but que sera sera team
If nothing else;
1. Found her. Well the wave did lol i think by the second day i realised what had been let loose and just tried to hold on.. Never meant for the crash. Hindsight is good like that, if anyone ever tries this, i'd say just use a picture, no names. Harder to creep that way
2. That the world is full of wonderful people, carrying the kind words and touching stories. There will always be people who tear at the dreams of others, for differing reasons. But it's the minority, so maybe society isn't as fubar as I thought
3. When the chips are down, I know who my real friends are
4. Whether you hated this, or loved this, something astounding happened here. The simple fact that you heard about it, and had an opinion, is a testament to that.
In what? 5ish days now? this circled the globe and brought together thousands of like minded souls.
excuse me for saying so but FUCK. YEAH.
I'm in your debt, all of you. And no amount of socks or bees will ever convey the level of my gratitude. Also if you haven't seen all of my posts then that will make no sense whatsoever. But you. All of you. Made this possible. Cheers
Reality is what you make it, so dream big
and while i'm not sure about yolo I do believe in seize the day, so do it.
When was the last time you did something crazy, stupid, terrifying and beautiful?
Happy festive season, and as much magic as you can cram into your New Years
You deserve it
Thank you, one last time
And to All, a Good Night
Ron Burgundy is getting to be a little too everywhere... but when he does things this hilarious, I STILL CAN'T GET ENOUGH!
I don't know if Peyton was at all informed of what was about to go down, but it certainly doesn't seem like it as he's making what I will call "Kanye faces".... trying to stay calm in front of cameras but raging on the inside over the ridiculousness.
"You look like a succulent baby lamb." Freaking SOLD. Goodness, I can't wait until the movie comes out... and I hope Will Ferrel never comes back.
PS feel free to post your favorite one liners from this video below! SO MANY AGAIN.
I'm hoping for a super speedy recovery for Amanda Bynes... one faster than Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears... she's already enrolled in fashion school.. but here's how she's lookin!

Craigslist... you're my favorite. It lets us see even more silly people.
Like this guy... who is actually a genius. His wife gave him the ultimatum of "the bike or me." He decided to let the world decide. He put them both up for sale, giving excellent descriptions.
Sportster: 2006 XL1200L Sportster in excellent condition
Wife: 1959 model year in excellent condition, considering
Sportster: Only 6,500 miles (less than 900 miles per year!)
Wife: High Mileage
Sportster: Well maintained. . .and it shows—see the pictures
Wife: High maintenance—and it shows—see the pictures
Sportster: Fresh oil change and filter (didn't need it)
Wife: Oil never changed— but is checked regularly
Sportster: Gently ridden—never ridden in the rain—stored in climate controlled garage
Wife: Rode hard, put up wet
Unfortunately, while the Sportster is available for try-before-you-buy test rides, the wife is not. "Don't even go there," White writes.
I kinda wanna marry someone like him... just cuz he clearly takes no ish and has a good sense of humor. Props, yo.
Ya know how Queen B doesn't want anyone taking pics of her at her concerts?! Well... that obviously makes everyone wanna take even more... and now they've taken a recent one....
...and turned it into a pretty hilarious meme at times.
I love the Internet and people of Reddit sometimes.
