I'm So Excited!

Hank Phillippi Ryan sent this little email out today - - -

"BREAKING NEWS: Welcome to our very own Kaye Barley--who's joining Jungle Red as our resident commentator, reader, visionary, mystery maven, arbiter, pundit and prognosticator. Kind of like Andy Rooney, but nicer (much nicer), and with a darling husband, a perfect dog, a massive library and cute shoes. Watch for Oh, Kaye! Every first Sunday on Jungle Red!"

Am I excited?  Let's just say I've been struck kinda dumb by it all.  The most intelligent thing I've said today is "Squeeee!"

Most of you are familiar with the Jungle Red Writers. but for those of you who aren't, allow me to introduce them - - -

So, yes.  I am excited. 

I'm trying to be cool, calm and collected about it all (can you tell?)

I am excited, and I am happy.  But mostly, I'm honored to be able to hang out with these remarkably talented women once a month. 

And I look forward to seeing you all there!

wow, huh?

I love the Jungle Reds, even though their blog host won't ever let me comment on the blog.

Kaye, I'm SO happy for you! Jungle Red is one of my favorite sites - I try to read it every day! And such a bunch of gifted people - for them to invite you means you're just as special as some of us thought you were/are! Thelma Straw in tickled to death for you in Manhattan - was hot, then cool, now hot again!
