Jacqueline's First Celebrity Encounter

When I learned that one of my all time favorite celebrity type person was going to be doing a book signing of his new children's book up in Ridgewood, I immediately notified Alison that she would have to go and get a signed copy of the book and take a picture.

I was lucky enough to fulfill a long time wish to attend a Weird Al concert over the summer with a few friends. We had a great time at the Asbury Park Convention Center.

A video of terrible quality, from the nose bleed section, from the start of the show...

After the show, the four of us decked out in our Hawaiian shirts, tried to go meet Al, but because of some delays, and a last minute venue change (we were supposed to see the show at the PNC center), he didn't have his usual meet and greet after the show.

So I was Happy that Alison, Jackie, and Aunt Lauren braved the icy conditions last Wednesday and were able to go meet one of my favorite entertainers. Alison told me she was able to have a brief private signing, before the main one. Apparently since she got there at just the right time, and because the stroller was so big, the manager wanted to help her avoid having to carry it down the stairs to the signing area.

The pictures came out great, and Jackie now has a signed copy of his new children's book and a nice story and picture to go along with it when she is older.
