New Kids On The Block had a bunch of hits...

My sister is seven years older than me, and when I was little I wanted to be just like her. This explains why, as a 6-year-old, I loved New Kids on the Block. I actually had an 11x14 poster pulled from Tiger Beat or BOP or some other teen dream magazine that I made my mother frame and put on the wall (I made her use the one that I had a Disney character poster in because I was “too big for it now”). And I kissed it every night before I went to bed, I’m not gonna lie.

15 years later, Danny Wood is still odd-looking and Joey McIntyre is still pretty.

Rumors have been flying all week, but this morning on Today the band announced that, after a 15-year hiatus, they would be reuniting for a new album and tour. My female friends and I are already making plans to buy tickets. The opportunity to see “Hangin’ Tough” live in concert is just too good to pass up…especially since the members of the band are in their mid-to-late 30s now (and a couple of them stayed out of showbiz completely following the breakup).

Stay tuned to see if a friend of mine has one of her dreams come true by being the girl pulled on stage by Donnie for “Cover Girl.”

Ahhh...nostalgia for the "oh oh ohhh oh oh."

But here;s the thing. They were on Today to announce the tour, but they didn't sing. WTF?

PS I redesigned the layout of my blog 'cause I got bored and needed a change. Like it? hate it? Didn't notice?
