Cosmetics will return shortly but now a word from our sponsor…….
Wow. That’s really the only word that comes to mind when I heard that New Kids on the Block are regrouping and rejoining the pop civilization as we know it. Wow.
This both scares and embarrasses me.
Would you look at Joey’s hat? The height of fashion circa the 90’s!
This basically means I have to embarrass myself by admitting that I actually loved this group when I was…11…12….13? It’s so long ago I can’t even recall my age how very sad! If you tell anyone about this I’ll deny it in aces!
Prior to discovering what real girly men are made of in Japan I was subjected to the girlish delights of New Kids on the Block (Hey, this isn’t Japan and we have poor imitation girly men here in the states! I just live here don’t blame me!)!
Now where as the Japanese produce idols that are seriously drool worthy we here in the US are subjected to such groups as the long forgotten Jordan, Joey, Danny, Mo, Larry and Curly (I forgot the rest of the names so I just added in the bit about Mo, Larry, and Curly).
Seriously I really did forget their names oh wait one just came to me! Donny! What about Jordan’s brother what’s his name? We can just go around calling him Mo for the remainder of this post!
I remember at first Jordan was the one I cried over (and hyperventilated and fantasized over) and later on I realized that a majority of the female population was actually crying over Joey so I quickly reverted to crying and screaming over Joey since everyone else was doing it and I didn’t want to be the outsider!
I think I was a late bloomer as everyone else was way into our friendly boy band before I was and I remember at the time my best friends Ellen and Kelly having their concert on VHS (VHS is probably before your time kids so go and google it) and it would be some sort of Friday ritual to sit down and watch it. Hell, I can even remember Ellen’s four year old sister dancing around to “Hanging Tough”….ah memories!
So what’s the point of this fine post?
No point! I’m just enjoying taking a trip down memory lane! Actually what I’m enjoying even more is the fact that the potential for funny is definately in this comeback! I need to laugh so bring it on New Kids! I welcome your come back with open arms! I can’t wait to see five grown men regroup and reform a boy band from 100 years ago! This should be awesome!
Hmmm…do you think Mark Wahlberg might consider making a comeback with the Funky Punch and releasing a new CD?
Maybe not. He’s kinda sorta an actor now I think? Only in American can you go from being Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to Mark Wahlberg, Oscar and Emmy Nominated Actor!
Prior to heading home I leave you with this gem from youTube:
“Donny’s D on the backup drug free so put the crack up”!
What the hell does that even mean…..I think I’ll e-mail Mark before leaving work and ask him about the lyrics!
I’ve been so sick since Sunday and I having thee worst agonizing sore throat EVER! If this wasn’t enough about two million other things have happened to totally unsettle my week!
My best jubako (I brought it while in Japan! It was sooooo freaking special to me!) was shattered into two million pieces this morning when I grabbed for it quickly! Ugh! GRRR! I was so upset I almost cried! To make matters worst I repacked my bits into a bento and that too freaking fell on the floor (my office kitchen is littered with the remains of my carefully packed bento right now!)!!! My god the horror! How freaking crazy is this!? *sniff* Bloody hell I find packing a bento very relaxing but not this morning!
To make things even worst…………!!!!!!!!!
I had billing reports due out today and Fed-Ex came early (they came at 10:45 AM?!?! WTH! They are supposed to pick up at 4:30 PM!!!!!!!) and they weren’t done this means that I have to make the stupid long track after work to drop them off at Fed-Ex myself! I wouldn’t mind so much if I was feeling 100% but I’m feeling about 10% at the moment!
It’s excruciatingly painful to swallow at the moment due to my very sore throat, I lost my keys and I’m having to use my valet key for my car (I’m so scared it’s going to snap in the ignition), I can’t find anything on my desk at the moment, my lunch is ruined…….
My stomach is growling at the moment as I haven’t eaten anything aside from hot tea in two days and I’m not below taking my chopsticks, sitting cross legged on the floor and picking the remains of my bento off the floor…..anyone wanna join me?
Pray tell what else can go wrong today?
Please can I go home now and back to bed?
Did I mention that I can’t find anything on my desk? I said that already didn’t I?
