Cereal musings

So I've finally figured out how to deal with the HTML of the blog, and so, despite a major pressing deadline, I'm busy tooling around with the site. Whee!

This is my thought of the morning: if I had to survive on one food alone, surely, it would be cereal. I adore, adore, ADORE cereal. Seriously, I mean it: I think I could live off of it. In the mornings, I have a whole system down. I layer five different cereals on top of one another - right now, I'm working Kasha Heart Healthy (which sounds nasty but is really sweet and yummy), Kix (I steal them from my son), Quaker Toasted Oatmeal, All-Bran (because I'm a health writer and know how good fiber is for the bod), and Golden Grahams (again, pilfered from my son's stash). My husband is a fan of Oreo Cookie Cereal (yes, they really do make that) and Honey Bunches of Oats, which I occasionally dabble in myself, but only when he buys the kind with strawberries or bananas.

So...if you had to survive on one food alone, what would it be? Or more importantly, am I missing out on any to-die-for cereals? (Because you know that I could spend hours lingering in the cereal aisle, so I'm always up for suggestions!)

If you start a blog, and no one reads it, is it still really a blog

If you start a blog, and no one reads it, is it still really a blog?

That's the question I'm pondering this morning.

Ah well, we'll give it a go.

Let's see, it's hard to know where to begin. Perhaps with a little intro as to why you should check back in? Hmmm, I'll discuss, in no particular order, what it takes to be a successful freelance writer, why I have serious back pain but refuse to make massage appointments, how my 21 month-old son continually outwits me, how I'm able to wile away an entire day reading (and contemplating) celebrity gossip, my TomKat baby theories, how to write a novel (and hopefully, get it sold), current books I'm reading (as of now, nada because I'm out of ideas - anyone have a few suggestions?), my eternal love of Felicity (and why, at 33, I still have a raging crush on Scott Speedman), mommy guilt, mommy wars, love, cancer, marriage, ex-boyfriends, friendship and all - both good and bad - that comes along with them, pooches, body image, popular culture, and well, seriously, is there any subject that I haven't mentioned? Probably not. So that should be incentive enough to check back in.

A little bit about me: I'm a freelance writer who spends her days toiling for most of the major magazines which you flip through while on the Precor at the gym or waiting for the subway in the morning. My first novel, THE DEPARTMENT OF LOST AND FOUND, will be published in hardcover by William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, in May 2007.

Thanks for poking around here. I'll be back with a much more enlightening post (see above topics) in a bit!
