A hapless Silver Lake Craigslister is trying to find this dude she met at a party.

But the party was a while back - Christmas in fact.

She's 33 years old, a designer, and she’s super into Radiolab. (In Silver Lake! Imagine our amazement.) And, just projecting our 90026 stereotypes here, she may also farm her own kale, make compost and do periodic juice cleanses. She may also have gone to Occidental. There’s a 54% chance she drives a Jetta. Plus, she already knows Silver Lake is not the Eastside.

So here's the question: are you the Tom Ashbrook-loving lawyer she's been pining for since that Christmas party eight months ago?

Hello, this is really 8 months late. Might as well give it a try. I am a designer, you an attorney. We talked long into the night after fighting that broke out at the party. I stupidly didn't get your name. Now I don't know where to find you. We talked about pod casts, how design and law firms are alike, comedy, etc. You like On point with Tom Ashbrook. I like Radiolab. We are geeks and we should reconnect!

Here's hoping that she and all you LAist readers out there find your missed connections, however long it takes you to find the courage to anonymously post about them on the Internet.
