Me Book Tour Diet Plan No Go To Good...

All right. I was supposed to get in shape for the tour. As I said, no one wants to meet a fat author. Hell, I don't want to be a fat author on tour. Plus, when you're flying on an airplane all of the time, there's nothing worse than feeling that you're ten pounds overweight. So I was supposed to cut out all of the bad stuff.

But things were mad hectic folks. Selling the house was stressful. But now, as I finish eating a spicy tuna roll from Kabuki, and look at two milk chocolate Ms. Fields cookies, I am vowing to start anew. I can do this, like Brutus, cause I always knew this. My first book signing is September 8th, so I have plenty of time. Plus, I have the good fortune of being able to get in somewhat good shape with a minimum of effort. Now I'm going to do it. Beginning tomorrow. The goal is a simple one: Lose ten pounds in forty days. Let me know if I should put a weight progress bar on the blog.

BTW, I'm going to steal an idea from another blog. Every Wednesday, I'll open it up for questions. If you have any questions about books and publishing, feel free to ask. Alright, back to my last chocolate.

Keep fighting the good fight, man.

Hey, did you apply for your UCLA parking permit yet? The deadline is crazy early.

Ah, see I've outwitted UCLA! I used to pay mad dollars to the UCLA parking fund because I never could get a parking permit. However, I'm buying a Ducati motorcycle at the beginning of September, so I can now park FREE on campus! Pretty sneaky eh?

BTW, I shopped today and got nothing but good stuff. For the next forty or more days, no dairy, bread, or sugar. I've got an early morning rollerblading routine set (around the block until I fall out) and then crunches and push ups at the stroke of every hour. I've gotta do it or I'll look like I'm in my first trimester while on tour. LOL
