In the '80s we made mix tapes.

Now we burn CDs from our playlists using itunes.

In honor of summer, (and my boredom,) I have created two new fun and exciting playlists. On the first one, I tried to pick songs that you would want to sing at the top of your lungs driving down the road while you blast the AC, or with the window down if you don't live in Texas. The second playlist is more like what you would play while you sit on your patio/porch in the evening. I would love to burn CDs for everyone, so if you are in need of a new mix CD, let me know or drop me a comment and I will send them to you. Seriously, this is my idea of fun.

Here is the lineup, just to whet your appetite.

OK... This is really just me. I'm just trying to get the ball rolling. That way, pyschologically, others will want one, too. Tricky, huh?

so let me be the first to ask for a CD...you have no idea how often i think about you when i'm at home...i have...wait for it...wait for it...SEVEN AMY MADE CDs...

i want to take this moment to advertise the amazingness of amy's cds...i work out to them...i ride in my car with them...i listen to them at work...i get mad at my boyfriend to them...they're GREAT!

that sounded sarcastic...but i'm completely serious...amy...i don't know if you remember making them for me...but they are my favorites...i've burned a couple of copies for friends...they're so good...AND...one of them said, "did you do this?" i said, "no...my fabulously tasteful girlfriend amy did." and he said, "is she a DJ?" WHAT? HOW COOL IS THAT! maybe you should be a dj in the summer...

ok...i love you and can't wait to see you...peace...SEND ME SOME CDs!

p.s. stace makes a great country cd...if you're ever wanting to go that route.

Wow, I think that is one the best compliments I have ever received!
OK, Ms. Erika, your CDs will be made this weekend, and since (hopefully) we'll be seeing you next weekend, I can give them to you in person.
Love you too, and looking forward to seeing you.
