Not Me! Monday, Oh. Oh. Oh oh oh.

Please continue to pray for MckMama and baby Stellan, still battling SVT in the Minneapolis Children's Hospital...



I did not stand in line for over an hour this weekend at the local box office to buy tickets to the New Kids on the Block tour. I swear I do not still know the words to almost all of their songs, or any of the dance moves to "The Right Stuff."

Growing up, I did not Hang Tough with the New Kids, nor did I follow their career Step-by-Step. I never longed to be their Cover Girl and I won't be Loving Them Forever either.

I certainly was not out-of-my-mind crazy for Jordan Knight and the boys. I did not have every square inch of wall and ceiling space in my bedroom plastered with posters of the Boston Five, and I did not plant good night kisses on the glossy images of Joey or Jordan before falling asleep every night.

I also did not own NKOTB t-shirts, sweatshirts, bedding, telephones, wall clocks, watches, buttons, wallets, lunchboxes or dolls. I did not stay up all night before their concerts making giant, glitter-covered posters declaring my love for them, then get so overcome with emotion at the first chord of their first song that I couldn't hold my own weight up, let alone my monstrous cardboard sign.

I will not be posting embarrassing photos of me with aforementioned signs later this week. Please do not come back to laugh at my mouth-full of braces, cheesy vest and stirrup pants, or bad orphan-Annie perm. (If you just can't wait to start making fun of me, check out these photos of me as a teen, posted by my real-life friend forever Rhiann)

I am not so excited about the upcoming concert that I am not giving away a copy of their newest cd, The Block.

Well, actually I am. And if you want to enter, I won't tell anyone. Just click here to go to the super secret contest post!

Okay so my staff (who are all college kids) knows I totally do NOT love them.

Especially Jordan fraking Knight.

So they are always giving me random NKOTB stuff. I have a Hanging Tough video tape. Who still has a VCR? Dang.

OMG, I'm so jealous.

Crap, I realized I kept forgetting to put NOT.

You know what I meant :)

The Blonde Duck said...

I like their new "Summertime" song. It's fun to dance to!

Bethany said...

LOL I hear ya sister. I love me some NKOTB and some Jordan! ;) I've been to three of their comeback shows and I have two more on my plate! So far! LOL

Christina said...

NKOTB was the first concert I ever went to when I was young. WOW! I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

Thanks. Thanks so much! I now have Step-by-step in my head!!

Jordan was my favorite too. Did you ever have the doll with the rat tail?

Heather said...

My cousin and I once made up our own dance to "Step by Step." It was not the greatest choreography ever!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Ha ha! I'm afraid to admit it, but I'm WAY TOO OLD to have been a fan of NKOTB. But, looking at them now, I might become one! :)

Roxane said...

Ok so, when Mr.H and I went skating last time the skateguard put in her ipod and Step-by-Step came on...before I could stop it, I was squealing with delight. Mr.H, a retired rockstar (no, i'm not kidding!) looked at me, laughed and called me a groupie :( I came out of the NKOTB closet at an ice skating rink...lol

Cole said...

My cousin and I are totally NOT buying tickets for their Boston performance when they go on sale next Monday!!

Mighty M said...

Okay, so let me take a wild guess here - you like New Kids On The Block??? Ha ha! Hope the concert is FUN!!

Susie said...

Melinda said...

Okay, I love you dearly and totally feel like if we knew each other in real life we would be bestest of friends; so knowing how much I truly care for you I must now express my concern for your obvious infatuation with NKOTB...it is really not healthy : )

R and R Stacy said...

OMG, I'm so jealous.

Brooke said...

*waves hands in the air, like she just don't care cause she's ready to rock with the new kids on the block somebody say "oh yeah"

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed reading yours. Hope you will stop by soon.
I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. With so many comments, I decided this must be a prize that bloggers wanted.
This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing.
This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you mention my blog, telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME... just has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Gotta love NKOTB!!!

Brooke said...

Even though I went to a NKOTB concert many years back with a neighbor girl, I think I am one of the only girls who did not have posters of them plastered on my bedroom walls or think that I might marry one of them someday.

Sara said...

I read your post and had to comment! I live in Grand Rapids Michigan and just went to their concert Saturday. Ditto to everything you said about them! :) It was amazing! I hope you got tickets and have a great time! I just posted some pictures and video from Saturday. Come take a look! It was out of control :)
