So I forgot to make the followup post! Anyway, here it is:
Apparently he had a conference in California, IB stuff I think
LONG PART: My mom had to go to New York for work, and I've been trying to get her let me see a Broadway show for like 3 years, so finally we decided to do it then. There was supposed to be a HUGE snowstorm at 11 AM, so we decided we wanted to be there by 11. When we arrived, there was barely any snow, and sense we were there so early we decided to see the matinee of Avenue Q (Originally we were just going to see Spring Awakening)!
It was reaaaallly great.
*DISCLAIMER* IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT MUSICALS SKIP ALL OF THIS *DISCLAIMER*
I had already listened the soundtrack to death, so I didn't think I would enjoy it THAT much, but it was really great still. The puppets added a lot to the songs, which made them funny again, and the non singing dialogue and plot were really funny. I actually thought the dramatic parts were pretty good, too. And I really like the last song where the message is basically "Everything sucks right now, and there's nothing you can do, but eventually it will get better"
I should explain, I forget not everyone is a theater nerd. Avenue Q is about a bunch of poor sesame street style puppets living in New York where a lot of them are unemployed/unhappy, and they do a lot really non-muppety stuff.
Some of the better songs are "If You Were Gay" "The Internet Is For Porn" "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist". It's absolutely hilarious.
Anyway, after we walked around and ate at planet hollywood, which actually was really good (the food I mean)
Then we went to Spring Awakening. It was also very good, but I liked avenue Q more. This one was really dramatic. It's basically about a bunch of kids living in 19th century Germany who don't know what sex is but are going through puberty and are really curious. It's a rock musical, and some of the songs are REALLY cool. My favorite was "Totally Fucked" but some other good ones were "The Bitch of Living" and "Left Behind".
I think the show itself is very good, but the cast wasn't great. They were all good at acting and singing, but it was kind of hard to understand them during a lot of the songs, and the songs are very important to the slightly complicated plot, so it was a little frustrating. Overall, it was very good, but not fantastic.

The awkwardest part of the whole night was when there is a sex scene in Spring Awakening. I was sitting two seats away from my mom, and the two characters start making out on the middle of the stage (it's not that random). The guy grabs the girls boob, and then pulls down the top of her dress.
I was thinking that it was only slightly awkward, and wondering how they were going to show them having sex without showing anything.
Then, he undoes her bra, and from stomach up shes nude, and you can see everything. O.o
SO AWKWARD! I Think I would have enjoyed it more if I was alone, if you know what I mean [in my room, and watching that as a video (i'm making fun of tim right now, but you probably don't know that [ah, hah, hah, just kidding, but I would have because I wouldn't have felt so awkward about it (this bracket parenthesis thing has gone on long enough)])].
Suprisingly, afterwards my mom didn't say anything.

*DISCLAIMER* ALSO, I LIKE PUPPIES *DISCLAIMER*
ANYWAY, BACK TO QUESTIONS
Because he's lazy
I don't know, because it's delicious!
