Facebook Friends and My Embarrassing Past.

Everybody that is anybody seems to be just as addicted to Facebook as I am. I have found so many lost friends and family it's ridiculous. This form of communication is right up my ally, email and posting on people's walls, no phone. Perfect. Need I remind you I loathe phone conversations and would prefer to stand in the corner and have people spit on me than actually talk on the phone, not to mention the fact that I can't carry on a conversation that doesn't require me to stop a bazillion times to tell a 3 year old that she can't in fact lay on her sister until she burps... because I said so....

I have recently come in contact with a ton of highschool friends. It's so great to see where their lives have taken them, to see pictures of them and their children. The ones that really blow my mind are the girls that were a year or 2 younger than me and have kids that are 8 or 9 years old!! It's so crazy to think about that when mine are still so little. Hubs keeps reminding me that we could have a 14 year old right now, insane!

If you knew me then, or you know me now, you know that I have a crazy, weird love for the New Kids on the Block. Ridiculous then and now, I know, but hey, what can I say? At least I can admit my problems, right? Well, there are a couple of girls that I have reunited with that I actually thought about a few weeks ago when I went to the concert in Atlanta. One wrote me today with a memory that I had completely forgotten about, or maybe chose to suppress, either way I had no recollection of it... At. All. Here's what she said:

Oh my goodness, as soon as I heard about the reunion I thought of you and S. as well!! Do you remember that "demo" tape we made and passed on to the concert security staff? We were so sure the NKOTB would listen and make us stars. How funny was that?!

What the What? I can't sing, what was I thinking? How pathetic could that have been? A recorded tape..... (yes tape) of us singing what? I'll be loving you forever? Hangin' Tough?

For the love of all that is holy, what the hell was I thinking?

Find. This. Tape.

Oma, if you're out there, go through all of her stuff and find it.

YOW! That's pretty cringe-worthy.

One of two things probably happened to that tape...the security guy took it home and taped over it while making a Valentine's mix tape for his girlfriend or the security guy passed it to his "friend in the business" who then used it for background music in a low-budget porno flick.

Here's hoping it was scenario #1.

THIS IS SO COOL!! I will check with Oma right after I do a search on YouTube. EVERYTHING turns up on there eventually. Just a matter of time. My darling niece may find fame after all.
Much love to you and best wishes to all for a great Thanksgiving,
Your Aunt

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

Oh K-Mom you just made my morning!!! I think I would actually prefer it to be on some low budget porn than to have any of my friends and family hear it and hold it over my head for eternity!!

I'm with you on talking on the phone...I avoid it at all cost..usless its hubby or my mom. They understand the stopping in mid-sentence to tell madie to stop whatever she's doing.

And the tape.....that would be a great "Wordless Wednesday" if you just wanted to post the audio.

Did you see them on the AMS's?
