who's your favorite now?

Like every other girl in my age group, I was *IN LOVE-UH* with the New Kids on the Block. Completely obsessed, bought all my Teen magazines, posters all over my room, just all out pre-teen hormonaly crazy. So I saw this picture of New Kids 2008 on People magazine's website, and wow... they're lookin pretty good these days. I have to admit that back in the day, I was a Joe fan. Probably because he was the youngest and quite pretty (guess I had a pretty boy thing going on). Here is a classic picture of them from left: Joe, Jordan, Danny, Jonathan, Donnie. Must show love here for the satin backed vest that Jon is sporting.

Here we are in 2008 and at least in this picture, I think I'm favoring Danny, who I never would've found attractive before. They all look quite confused here, but guys typically do look confused. For those who don't know, they are from left: Donnie, Jonathan, Danny, Joe, Jordan. (Is Jordan wearing that same satin backed vest?)

So in 5th grade (for me anyway) when they were all the craze, it seemed that every girl had *her* favorite and if your friend had her favorite, you couldn't have the same favorite because you couldn't both marry the same one (no-duh!). So who was it then and who is it now? Oh, and did you have any of the big buttons? Those were all the craze, they were like the size of a paper plate and had a picture of your favorite Kid on it. I had one with Joe's picture of course.

7 equal yet different opinions:

OMFG!!! I loved these boys...but my parents were poor and I never got any of their memoribila (sp?)

I have not dared to listen to their new songs.....I have heard they were OK though...

their summertime song is really cool. I think if Kid Rock hadn't had his summertime song out first, the NKOTB one would have been way popular.

I used to dream of marrying Joey McIntyre. Now, not so much. But I still like the new songs. Better than I had expected - I've been annoying my co-workers all summer by having Summertime as my ringtone. I was planning to write about this too, but not until after I try to scare up a copy of the CD, though - according to the official mailing list (because, you know, I had to sign up the moment they announced it), it is now out in the US, but I don't know if the stores here have it yet. Perhaps I can use my phenomenal blogging power to get them to hit Taipei on an international tour. Boyz II Men did. :)

Not sure why I feel the need to say this... but... I'm too OLD to ahve gone through this the first time. Now, if you'll excuse me, my walker needs oil and I need to change my Depends.

They are slightly after my time, but I stress, only *slightly.* ; )

I like Donnie now, didn't really have a preference then.

Knitty geek, can I borrow that oil for my walker?

I started out as a Donnie fan then towards the end I liked Jordan. They are still my 2 faves. Although, I admit that I only liked them because everyone else did. The only memorabilia I had was a small poster of the group that I bought with you at the Delaware state fair one year. And a Donnie pin that I found in the bathroom at school. Why do I remember this stuff?
