Did Ed McMahon just call my name?

I have subscribed to every cooking magazine there is: Eating Well, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Cook’s Magazine, Cook’s Country, Fine Food. My favorite is Cooking Light. In addition to recipes, they also have a little bit of travel and exercise info thrown in there. And a while back they invited readers to apply to get their exercise routine whipped into shape. (Full disclosure: it’s a rare day I don’t exercise, but I want the casual observer to grasp that. Instead of grasping that I've been eating the Krispy Kremes that keep appearing in our work room.)

And now I’ve been chosen from among all the applicants! It looks like it will appear in the April issue (how apropos!) They will give me tips about how to make my upper arms appear more buff, then I’ll follow the routine that will be custom-designed for me for a month. And I’ll blog on their site once a week during “my” month.

Watch out world! Here come my triceps!

Good news, bad news

I like the idea of a new teen imprint.

But I don't think I'll be writing for this one. Little, Brown Children new teen paperback imprint is called Poppy. They are going to move all the Gossip Girl, Clique, and A-List series there. And they'll launch it with Cecily von
Ziegesar's Gossip Girl prequel. In January they'll begin a new series, Poseur, about LA teens who start a fashion line.

Too bad that's not my cup of tea.

Unless, of course, someone wants to offer me a lot of money....
