Hangin' Tough

I can't believe it!!! After 19 years, NKOTB, (New Kids on the Block to the lay person) are getting back together for a reunion tour. When I first saw this on the Today's show last week, I'll admit, I felt all giddy again. It took me back to the days of Tiger Beat, and Bop. The days when I wallpapered my entire bedroom, ceiling included, with pictures of these hotties. Joe was my favorite. We were supposed to marry, but his schedule was so hectic, it made it hard to really get to know each other.

So I ask this question. Who is up for a road trip once the tour dates are released? Who out there is a closeted NKOTB fan? Who out there is willing to admit that they too, focused all of their teen years plotting ways to meet their favorite band member? Who wants to go, just to see me make an idiot out of myself when I bust out my old dance moves to "Step by Step?" I will not disappoint, I promise. "I'll put you in a trance with a funky song."

You're on your own here! I never liked them!! I'll go on the road trip, but I won't squel in delight when I see them.

I squealed with delight when I imagined you gettin down to some NKOB! I would totally go with you. I love taking a trip down memory lane. Although I must admit I always preferred New Addition. :0)

I never liked them either. Although I did have a BFF who covered her walls in Jonathan. Like as in so many pictures she could've been on Sally Jessie.

Who are New Kids on the Block?

Just kidding...they were actually the first concert my parents let me go see. I was a bit sheltered.

I'll go with you, but this time instead of being the girl singing along to every song at the top of my lungs while also screaming "I LOVE YOU, JONATHAN!!" I'll be the cool girl in the back trying to score some hooch.

You've got competition here!!! I wouldn't say I'm a closet fan, just that no body has ever asked me if I was one. Loved them about as much as I loved Nsync!!! Me and my friend followed them around the state of Louisiana.

My little one is willing to go too. You'll have no competition for Joe with her. Donnie is her all time favorite. I've shown her some videos of them on You Tube, and she's got NKOTB stuff from when her older sisters were into them too. I almost called you months ago when I heard about the possible comeback but I figured you had outgrown the interest in them. I hope Hubby doesn't feel threatened. ;)
Much love to all,
Your Aunt

I can remember them...and the room posters, lol.

That was the year I learned what the term "fad" meant.

It might be amusing to go to a concert to see all the women in their early thirties acting silly! LOL

In regard to my earlier post....it is New Edition,not addition. I honestly couldn't sleep last night b/c I kept thinking about that! :)
Neurotic? Pretty much!

I have to say, first, as a work-at-home husband of a stay-at-home mome, I love your blog. You've got a wonderful writing voice.

The question about NKOTB, of course, is will Marky Mark return as well? As I recall, he did open for brother Donny at one time...

I'm a Mom!..? said...
