  12. Cute post! I might would consider buying Lisa's pink retro phone. Also, I think somewhere in my house that I, too, have a stero with a dual cassette player setting around. It's good to know that I'm not the only person who wished they were a crafty person. Although, I would think having the ability to write a sucessful story is pretty crafty. :)
