Reunited



The Today Show was on the tv this morning as I was eating breakfast. I could hear lots of cheering and screaming and was curious to know who was on the show. When I came around and saw the faces, I instantly recognized them, the New Kids on the Block. I was mildly obsessed with them, as (most) any pre-teen girl was in the early 90's. They were my 2nd concert to attend (my first concert was a Club Mtv tour with Paula Abdul, Ton Loc, Information Society, and yes, I saw in concert, Milli Vanilli!!!). While they are no longer kids, in their mid-late 30's in fact, they still look pretty good. And, I guess they are coming out with a new album. Funny!

P.S. Could that picture be any smaller???

At least you got to go! I was not allowed to attend the Tiffany/NKOTB tour, yet my little sister got to see n' sync. There is deep seeded bitterness that I remind my parents of often : )

I actually thought of you when I saw them on the Today show yesterday. I clearly remember you telling me about your Club MTV tour concert. I can proudly say that I never liked NKOTB...I was so not mainstream. However I still managed to be a total dork in junior high! Ha ha!

i was also majorly obsessed with nkotb for about one school year. my friend and i used to pretend we saw them every where and that they were going to talk to us and that they were in love with us. but that was in the late '80's. by the early '90's i had moved on to nirvana. and i never pretended that they were in love with me-how uncool!

Raya's comment totally cracks me up! I too, was not allowed to even look at those bands and listen, but I lived secretly and vicariously through my neighbor friend, who had the t-shirts and was a fan club member. Sigh! Maybe I should thank my parents from much embarassment. (as if photo's from that era aren't embarassing enough!)
