Hangin' Tough!


I'm highly amused right now!
I just purchased two tickets to the New Kids on the Block in November!!!
Why did I do this?
Well, it is a long story, but the short version is, because my best friend from Jr High and I got in touch via Myspace. She was seriously my best pal ever. I adore her. We did everything together.
I had a crush on Donnie and she had a crush on Joey. She is now married with children and living across the country.
Thanks to Myspace, we recently reunited just before the NKOTB did! We got to talking and one thing lead to another. Now she is flying to Seattle for that weekend and we are going to go see the show we wanted to see when we were 12 years old, living in Alaska.
We are pretty excited about this! Not so much about the show itself, but about the fact that we get to set aside our lives and be 12 year old girls again for just one night. I can hardly wait!

Oh, and as an extra bonus, look at this photo of my two favorite (for pretend) ex-husbands. Oh what might have been...

Oh. My. God. *dies*

I assume that giving you MY underwear to throw onstage at JOEY is going beyond the bounds of online friendship. That being said, I WOULD DO IT FOR YOOOOOU!!! :)

I will live vicariously through you. This is awesome, just truly truly awesome.

We should write an open letter to Conan.

Is it Rhonda?

No, Rhonda had moved away by the time I was in 4th grade. We lost touch by the time I was in 6th grade. She was around for the Rick Springfield obsession days.
It is Gina who is coming to visit. She was my friend all through Jr High and High School. We even had babies at the same time and hung out quite a lot before I moved back to Seattle in 97.

Brilliant! My best friend from Jr High bought me a ticket for the November show in Portland, at the same venue(ish) that we saw them play at a million years ago!

I used to be OBSESSED with Joey :)We'll have to compare notes!
