Hunting Butterflies

Forrest and I were eating lunch off-campus today. Good teriyaki place. Anyway, I happened to look out the window, and staring at me from across the parking lot was the MSN Butterfly. Forrest hurriedly took a picture with his cameraphone before he flew biked away. I'll Photoshop the image later, but quality-wise, it's up there with Sasquatch footage. :(

Then, as we were getting in the car to leave, we saw the Butterfly again across the street, near a back entrance to a Microsoft building. We ran over there, but he had disappeared. We didn't know whether he had gone into the building or down the stairs into the parking lot. We gambled on the building and went in after him.

Alas, we didn't see him anywhere. We wandered around the outside of the building, thinking that since he was bike-bound, he might be cirling the building. No luck. We cut back through the building to get back to where we were parked, where we passed a couple local employees. One asked us what we were looking for (we must have looked pretty obvious *grin*). I told him we wanted to find the Butterfly. He kept walking down the hall, saying something about how he couldn't say anything. Very strange.

We eventually admitted defeat, thus ending our almost-brush with Butterfly.
