My childhood, revisited...?


(Thanks, Jess, for the info!)

So People magazine is reporting that New Kids on the Block are getting back together.

Wow.

Okay, dorky admission time... once upon a brief time, like most of the girls my age, I adored them. I had all of their tapes (tapes!), posters on my wall, buttons on my jacket, and I saw them in concert at least twice. Donnie was my favorite. I even dressed up as him for Halloween... with a shirt that said "Home Boy" and a peace sign around my neck. LOL.

So yeah, I'm really amused that they're getting back together. Too funny. A bunch of 35-to-40-year-olds dancing around, calling themselves "New Kids"... tee hee. I can't wait. I'm making my friend Jess promise that we will go see them in concert (if it comes to that). I'll have to dig out my buttons...

Wow. I guess everything old does eventually come back!
Tapes, huh? I had albums - yes, vinyl, 33 rpm albums! Even had a few 8-track tapes! Didn't have any NKOTB, though...lots of Rick Springfield, Shaun Cassidy, even Scott Baio!!

Donnie was my favorite too! i harbored a crush for him, for years after their disappearance from the face of the earth- until his appearance in the Sixth Sense turned me off...

but this news. Wow... Odd, to say the least. when I first heard it, I laughed out loud...

I was never a fan of them. But I think that I would attend a concert now, I'm curious how they are going to put the spin on "New Kids..." now that they are middle-aged, LOL!

i never was much of a fan (not lying, i swear!) i was more into hair bands. lately though i've developed a thing for marky mark--er, i mean mark wahlberg.

First of all, you were a fan for longer than "a brief time", sweetheart. ;)

Second of all, we are SO going to see them!

I remember that Halloween...u were donnie, and Mary was Jordan. I am soooo hoping that this is not a rumor...I would definately go see them. Danny was my fave...he kinda reminded a lil of Matty Walsh. I think I still have all of my buttons, as well as my trading cards, however, I never got the complete set. I still need a few more...anybody wanna trade???
