Teen Surprise, Part Deux

At the dramatic conclusion of the last blog, I had surprised Teen with a trip to New York . . .

And yes, she was totally surprised, as in four hours into the flight surprised . . .

So, while on our wonderousitywoowoo trip, a Teen, a Peep, and Moi saw another Broadway show . . .

And took the subway everywhere . . .

Teen went to the super-famous Astor Place Hair in the Village and got red streaks . . .

We went on a tour of NYU . . .

We met up with uber author Elise Broach -- her wonderful book WHEN DINOSAURS CAME WITH EVERYTHING just won the E.B. White Readaloud Award given by the Association of Booksellers for Children. . .

. . . and we had coffee (well, I had hot chocolate since I am self-caffeinated and have issues with COFFEE!!!) at the celebrity infused Balthazar (although the celebs were in hiding when we were there) . . .

We went to Books of Wonder to see bestselling author/pal Phil Bildner sign books and host a Teen Extravaganza of singing and dancing and fun times. Plus I finally got to meet a teen-book-reviewer-pal-o-mine in person . . .

And we capped off our trip with an indescribable show called Furhefjbefjbefbsbfehbeb. Well, that’s how I pronounce it. Others can say Fuerzabruta. Right before the show we bumped into my editor Cheryl Klein at a Korean fast food place . . .

(Above: This is when we were in Cheryl's office earlier in the day. It is not the Korean fast food place.)

Peepy convinced Cheryl to join Teen, my brother and Moi for the show—which had been featured on America’s Next Top Model the night before. (Had we gone the night before, I am convinced we'd be American's Next Top Model(s).)

The show happens next to you, above you, all around you. It's hard to explain. For the most accurate view of what we saw, hold your computer above your head, crane your neck and look up . . .

(These people were SWIMMING about two feet above us.)

It was a marvelous trip. One that Teen and I will remember, always.
