I think she has added some words to the common idiom, "Cute as a button", that are intended to give you clues to either her location or her ethnicity. I don't want to ruin your/her fun by straight-out telling you my answer , so I will give you an additional clue: Where do they dance the hula, have lava-producing volcanoes, and consider surfing a popular sport?
I know her location and I also know her ethnicity. I know well. She has just opened a new account on one of the free email sites and is playing a game with me to see if I can send an email to her. This is in reply to some of the games I have played with her. She is now getting back to me. I can pick upth phone and talk to her, i can also email her normal account but if I do not figure this one out, she will pick on me till the end of the World. So I am trying my best. I have already tried cutehawain and it does not work.
