"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

New Kids on The Block

I was a HUGE fan of NKOTB. My huddy makes fun of me because I'm excited that they are coming in concert. I'm hoping it works out that I will be able to go see them. I still have somewhere in a box, posters, pillows, buttons, (ken) dolls and more. My new favorite show is Rachel Ray. Well today she mentioned that New Kids on The Block are going to be on her show tomorrow (Tuesday) and 9:00 on channel 2. If you were/are a huge fan don't forget to watch. My favorite was Joey. But I've always thought Donny was H-O-T. Who was yours?

I personally loved Jonathan, and Jordan, the brothers. they are coming here to Denver in November. I really want to go, but I dont know that i could come out and admitt that I am excited they are in concert again.

BTW... I went to Kmart since you said you saw that costume, and I couldnt find it. maybe CO has lame Kmarts.

LOL....that is SO funny. They definitely are not as cool as they used to be. Check out those Sa-Weet outfits! I'm with Heidi, I liked JORDAN the best w/Jonathan holding a strong 2nd. But Danny could sure move, even though I used to say he looked like a monkey!

oh no!!!!! i remember playing in your front room when there was no furniture and playing this tape and debbie gibson!!!! yow baby!

I totally remember sleeping over and being a little frightened by all your NKOTB treasures. Cuddling up with your Joey pillowcase has changed me in ways that even I still don't understand.

I know! it is so crazy that they are back together. I was a personal fan of Joey myself. Whenever my mom would drop me off at the bus stop in the 6th grade I made sure my New Kids tape was blasting as loud as it could in the car....I was such a dork.

I think that I liked Joey the best. My brother used to get so mad when I played their tape and yell at me that they were "so gay". Oh the memories! Remember when we went to the N'Sync concert and one of them opened for them? I can't even remember who it was...maybe Joey?
