We made it..

And she did spectacularly. We even got compliments on her behavior. Of course, she was drugged and slept a good bit of the flight, and the remainder was spent watching cartoons, but it was a smashing success!

Today I met up with a friend for lunch and we saw some of the city. We took KayTar to Toys R Us to ride the ferris wheel. It was a pretty impressive store. KayTar was not a fan of the animatronic dinosaur, though. She keeps saying "I had a bad day and a BIG dinosaur RRRRRRAAAAARRRRRR!" Other than that, it has been really great. Our hotel is right in the middle of Times Square. Tonight I am having coffee with an old friend who lives in town, so that should be nice, too.

Tomorrow is the big shoot! It should be quite the experience. They dropped off a little swag bag for me tonight. Faaaancy.

My laptop is not cooperating with photo downloading right now, but there are plenty of photos coming. Hopefully I'll be able to upload them soon.
