you made all... my dreams come true

ok, look. i know a lot of people SAY they were the biggest nkotb fan around. but i seriously WAS. i saw them in concert a million times, MET them at the magic summer tour (oh yes) in 1990 and had all the crap. most hardcore new kids fans had the whole room-covered-in-posters thing so i wasn't really over the top there. i did also have the DOLLS and sheets and TOWELS and tapestries... i won contests and wrote letters. i even co-founded a group of new kids fans who protested a DJ at a local radio station for dissing the new kids (obviously i realize how pathetic i am). i loved them even WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE. which, for the record, was in 1993. i know. so sad.

i *thought* when i heard of their upcoming reunion that i would be SO OVER it. i mean, i'm almost 33, people. i saw a publicity photo today.

i'll be lovin you foreeeeeeva

I loved NKOTB!

Until my boyfriend at the time started dressing like them (wearing one overall strap undone) and informed me one day that "I'll be Loving You Forever" was "our" song. Pretty soon, he was way too busy liking them to like me.

Dude, I don't know if I can go through this all over again with you. Wait, what am I saying? You know I'll be the first to special order you a beach towel when they come out.

YEAH BECKY! Remember how you ordered it for Christmas (which, when you think about it, is completely assinine for a beach towel gift) but it didn't arrive until practically summer ANYWAY??? genius.

I wish I stil had it. Sigh.
