So: you know all about the Twitterhood of the Butt-Lifting Pajants, do you not?
Okay. Are you up to speed? Good. Now the pants have been rocked by: Julia DeVillers, Lauren Myracle, Sarah Mlynowski, Elizabeth Eulberg, Susane Colasanti, Courtney Sheinmel and Lauren Oliver. From me they go to Melissa Walker, then Tara Altebrando, Maureen Johnson, David MacGinnis Gill and WHO KNOWS HOW MANY OTHER YA WRITERS.
But I have them. Right now! I got them from Courtney Sheinmel, author of Positively, My So-Called Family and more -- today underneath a dino skeleton at The American Museum of Natural History. She wore them to a Passover Seder with Lauren Oliver, author of Before I Fall and Delerium. (I have never met Lauren, but her sister befriended MY sister all the way in Oxford, England, where they were both studying philosophy. Isn't that wild?)
Anyway, the pants were apparently clean and I PUT THEM ON right away in the primates exhibit. Yes, I put them on RIGHT IN THE EXHIBIT! No one looked twice. Is New York Effing City, and people put pajants on next to the chimpanzee skeletons all the time, no doubt. Also, I was wearing a dress, which looks like a tunic in the picture because I hiked it up for better pajants viewing.
It was too dark in there to get near any seriously big apes, I am sad to say. The pajants had to be photographed with some rhesus monkeys and I don't know what all else -- but little guys.
I was then VERY overheated in the pajants, because ALL OF HUMANITY was in the ANHM, since it was about 1:30 pm of the fourth day of public school spring break. The human-type primates were running amok and generating way too much body heat. So I just pulled them off like the primate that I am, tucked them in the shopping bag Courtney provided, and went home with dignity almost in tact.
I think I am passing them to Melissa Walker on Saturday. She wrote Small Town Sinners, Violet on the Runway, etc.
But I have to decorate them first. I am thinking....fluffy bunny on the butt. Stay tuned. Happy Easter.
