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. So...here 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.

Wow Lisa! I'm so excited that you have a date and he meets all of the requirements and more! A guy who makes the plans and spares the drama of where to go is a rare find. Have fun!

Ok Lisa, I have indeed lost focus. But I'm quick to refocus, so I'll get back on track. I'm bummed I lost the first challenge, but I'm so excited for you to go on this first date. Go ahead and kiss all those frogs. I'm just concerned with winning it in the end and finding you your prince! I'll be in touch with your prince's info. Have a great date!

Don't trade any facial parasites with him. It's too soon.

Oops, thought I left this the other day, my mistake! How was the date? Hope it went well enough that I can now pass this on to Eric & Kathy! Good luck!
