What Do You Want Me To Do? Spit Nickels?

Dudes. I have become that girl. The one who forsakes all of her friends for some guy.

Well, not real-life friends. I see and talk to them a lot. But my Internet friends. I dropped ya'll like it was hot. Because you are hot.

But, he is hotter -- and he cooks me food, tells me I'm beautiful and finds it endearing that I've been wearing the same jeans for a week straight. I can't say the same for any of you. So, unless you want to pick up the slack and make me a sandwich or something, he's probably going to continue getting the lion's share of my attention.

But I have been keeping up with what's new in your worlds, honest I have. I still read your blogs religiously, so don't you worry about that. In fact, you all have much more interesting things happening than I do. Sock puppeteering. Encouraging children to hit one another. Making the bed. Cool stuff.

Suffice to say that, with me, all the important things are good. Family. Friends. Finances. Flip flops. Flamingos. Fort Lauderdale. Ficus Tree. Oh, sorry – I started playing a game of Scattergories with myself.

Back to the matter at hand. I'm good. My hair is also good, what's left of it, anyway.

My what big eyes you have! I look very 'curious' here, don't I? Yes, out of the 20 or so I took, I thought this was the best one. Not a very good photo day, I'm afraid.

Whee! I love it. In fact, my new beau, who I had chatted with a few times before whilst wearing my "other" hair, said it was my new hair (or lack thereof, I guess), that solidified his crush on me. He'd been mulling it over for a few weeks, I guess. So ladies, it's really true what TV tells you: A new hairdo can change your life.

Speaking of someone with beautiful hair, Neko Case almost got into my sister's minivan. You know how it is. She was in town for a show, and also apparently visiting with some friends who were driving her around in another sweet minivan. They were leaving a restaurant and Neko, thinking she had found her friends' car, tried to open to door while my sister watched from afar. Then Neko's friends realized what was happening and called her back. Kind of anti-climactic but, oh, Neko – like I needed another reason to adore you.

In other celebrity news, Megan Jane almost accidentally ran over Anne Lamott and I had another Scott Savol sighting in which he may, or may not have, been cruising in a sweet ride himself – Buicks offer both comfort and performance, so good for him.

That seems like a good place to end, lest I overwhelm you with the excitement of my life.

In the Comments Section, tell me your new favorite music crush. I need some new tunes.
