5 things on my mind.

1. Should I buy this? It will match my other ladder-style bookshelves, I think, and will nicely display all my favorite magazines I horde and refuse to throw away.

2. I am reading the Twilight series. I am a sucker for the romance.

3. Yeasayer's "Tightrope" from Dark Was The Night is AWESOME!
I've listened to 30 times already this morning.

4. I am finally hooked up the Internet at home. I made it a whole year without.
I hope this doesn't hurt my bank account.

5. Rhymes... no Limes. The Café, my home away from home, just called to ask
me to swing by the grocery store before I come in for work tonight. Did you know every Friday I work at my full-time job, 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM, then I serve at The Café from 5:30 PM to 11:00 PM? Long day, but I <3 The Café.

In all three tests, I put in my current music obsession, Scott and Seth Avett. And in all the tests, they were not the chosen crush. It's like the internet knew they were married or something? Haha. I pretty much can see myself in all these instances. The question, is which one do you see me in?

New things.

I got my hair cut. I look like this now.

Voila! I took this photo on my new MacBook Pro 13".

I just got it last week, with a free iPod Touch, which I've named Touchy Touchy, because all things are cuter when you say the name twice. Ironically, twice in the past couple of weeks, I've been lectured that I'm way too touchy. How could affection be bad? Well, it's bad if it seemingly leads others to think I am interested in them, when I am in fact not. It's a problem. I've apparently led many in this misdirection. And hurt many a feeling in the midst. :( But alas, now my feelings are hurt. I don't know how I am to act anymore. If I'm not the affectionate Lisa I've always been, who am I?

My baby turned 21!

When I first started at The Café almost three years ago, I quickly befriended Jacqueline Jane Zimmerman, me 22 and her the ripe, young age of 18. Despite our age differences, we became besties, best, really the best of friends. Yesterday was her 21st. My baby's all grown up! I took the day off so we could party into the wee hours the night before. The next day we got pedicures and then ate lunch with her mom and sisters. The day ended with a family grill out, the 5 Zimmerman's, their menagerie of pets, and myself, their honorary daughter and token Asian.

I love her!
This is from last summer, we road tripped to KC to see The Kooks, Rogue Wave, and Death Cab for Cutie in concert. Jaci and I love going to shows together. Besides those bands, we've seen The Whigs, the Kooks again, and Bon Iver together. Our next show will be The Avett Brothers in Iowa City in September.
I can't wait!

PS. The new Ray LaMontagne CD, Gossip in the Grain, is great. I'm loving it.

Meet my future husband.

Scott Avett.
He's in the back playing the banjo.
And serenading me.
This is my fave right now: Laundry Room :: The Avett Brothers.
