So I'm pretty excited that New Kids on the Block are back together and releasing albums. I'm sure that ALL of you are too. MTV China just played their new video "Summertime" and I'm happy to report that it was actually kinda good. (That could be the boredom talking).

My sis was responsible for getting me into the whole New Kids obsession. She gave me a copy of her tape when I was pretty young. I listened to it for hours. Joey was my favorite. It fits because he was the youngest and I was four, maybe five. When I learned to read, I bought a book about the group and Joey said that he wished he had a white limousine with a car phone. My, how times have changed since the days of innocent "Step by Step" and "Hangin' Tough". Nowadays, we've already endured NSYNC (whom I never had a thing for until Justin went solo) and are now subjected to the Jonas brothers, which I'm sorry, are NOT all.

Back in the day, I had a NKOTB hat, book, every tape (including the Christmas one) and a pretty sweet t-shirt. My sister had me beat as she was older and a bigger fan at the time. Although, her favorite was Donnie. I'm sorry Sis, but out of all of the New Kids, he's the only one that looks middle-aged and balding now.

Can you imagine our matching Joey and Donnie posters now? I remember having an argument with you over who was cuter. I guess I win now. :) Although, Jonathan seems to be the one to age the best. Eh.

I can't wait to see who Ava's first celebrity crush is.
