After more than 50 bridal showers, 30 bachelorette parties, 80 weddings and 15 baby showers, it's not about you, my friends, any more. It's all about me. Check my blog for clues on whom I'd like to live happily ever after with. Each day, you need to think -- "Hmmm...would he be right for Lisa?" Then, when the right guy comes to mind, set me up! But, let's keep the contest between us girls (and select boys that are allowed to view my desperation).

I have a date!

That's right, ladies! My co-worker, Karen, set me up with a guy that she used to work with at a different ad agency. is what I know:
- He has a job (same industry, so that's conversation at least)
- He wears shoes (he had some on at lunch when Karen told him about me, but she didn't ask how many pairs he as at home, but I'll work it in tonight)
- His most recent vacation did NOT involve camping
- He has a sense of humor (he moonlights once a week at Improv Olympic)
- He is over 25, actually 31!
- And, he is planning the date -- didn't do the "so what do you wanna do?" Or, "you pick the restaurant" -- just said I'll plan it and pick you up at 7:30 pm. Fun.

So, now I need to award Karen with a prize for getting me my first date! I will let you know how the date went and what she wins later this week.

For the rest of you, I hope this inspires you to get busy! Heather B said she doesn't like to lose, but...I have yet to hear from a boy that knows her.

Where is he???

Well, I know you all are reading my blog because you tell me and you tell my Mom (Dena Howser), but you are very shy about posting! Ladies, tell me what you think, tell me that you are thinking of my prince (and my impending happiness).

Come back soon because there are "dates in progress" and some prizes will be distributed if all goes well...

Must Have #7: Taste buds that exceed restaurants that only deep fry their menus! Meaning, once in a while, he'll want a nice dinner for two!

Desperate times calls for...

...desperate measures.
Oh, I'm not talking about me. I mean, I have all of you working on dates for me, but this poor woman (her mug shot above) in Aloha, Oregon should be so lucky. She had a real love emergency! She was arrested for calling 911 to find the 'cutie-pie' cop that had just left her house after following up on a noise ordinance complaint! Don't let his happen to me...

Was it a sign?

When was the last time that you actually saw a real frog? It's been about 15 years for me, but I saw him. My prince! I'm taking it as a sign. He hopped across the patio at my parents house. My Dad called me outside to see it (strange, I know, but maybe he was thinking the same thing as me -- it's her prince!) Frogs are really kind of gross. My sister, mom, dad and I stood on the patio staring at it, watching him (I swear he winked his bulging eye ball at me) and then he was gone, hopped off somewhere. Hmm....Does this mean that one of you is withholding a prince potential? Get on it, ladies (and gentleman!) This frog is cute and soliciting a makeout and I know you have some single friends that need a smooch as well.

I went to my 81st wedding and all I got was...

...a headache!

Here I am with the groom...He's showing off his new wedding band and now he's off to Fiji and I'm back to logging into my blog and asking all of you to think real hard about "the guy" -- the one that is supposed to sweep me off my feet. Or, at least, take me on a date.

As you consider all the single men with promise,'s not cool to show them this blog!

Must have #7: A favorite book. It's real boring when a guy doesn't even have a response to that question. It can be "How the Bears won the '85 Super Bowl" -- that's fine as long as he's read a book!
