Recently laid off Village Voice scribe Lynn Yaeger has been snapped up by New York Magazine. Yaeger will blog for them during Fashion Week. She doesn't sound too excited about it, though: "'I always say that, I would rather spend a week at Rikers Island or the hospital than do Fashion Week. Don't you think it's like school? It's sort of divided up into periods and it has mean girls and you go from one class to another. It's the worst,' said Ms. Yaeger. 'I hate it, but the prospect of not being at Fashion Week didn't make me happy either. Do you think my seat will get better or worse? Maybe my currency in Fashion Week will go up, who knows.'"
