Their Back.....

{Then}

Yes, the rumors are true. My adolescent crush is back performing with the kids from the block. New Kids On The Block have reunited and are planning a summer album release and tour. I am slightly stunned and dare I admit a little giddy. My all time favorite New Kid was Jordan Knight. I loved his voice, his dance moves and of course his rat tail. I had posters, sheets, and the Jordan Knight official Barbie doll. They announced this morning on the Today show, they all looked remarkably well. So I will be excited to hear their new album and to watch this whole drama unfold. NKOTB!

You are hilarious, I used to have a tail: scary I know.

It's funny how what excited us as kids, still works. So are you planning on going to the concert?
Go for it!!

Oh my gosh. That is so funny really. I can't even begin to tell you how much I don't want to go. Sorry. Glad you can get reconnected though.

Sheets?! Seriously?! Jordan was my favorite too, he was by far the best looking. I just saw a pic of the newly reunited group on People.com and was amazed at how well they aged. This post is hilarious. Yet another surprising thing I've learned about you!

hi - i'm alicia's cousin and she told me to come on here and check out this post. i was the biggest blockhead most people ever knew. :) i've been trying to get this updated picture of the new kids as my picture for my blog (you know, the one that comes up with your name) and i can't. not that i'm totally freaking out about the reunion, i'm just a little interested to see if they will even sound good becuase i listened to some of their original stuff lately and it was terrible. :) time will tell.

Jan said...

Okay Sara, I changed my mind. I just read this article and they sound like they are really going to be great. I guess I just remember some of their standards weren't the best, but they were good. So I guess I would go and enjoy myself. It's fun to remember music crushes huh?
