New Blogs on the Block

I have a New Kids on the Block song stuck in my head. I won't name it and inflict that kind of pain on you, but it rhymes with 'The Bright Fluff'. I think horrible affliction has happened because of a CNN report that I saw which alleged that the NKOTB were launching a reunion tour.

(Dear New Kids on the Block:
Love, Chrissy)

In other news, two of my friends e-mailed me in the past week to say they had started new blogs. Yay for old friends with new blogs!

One of them is my friend Tracy, who I know from college. We spent a summer working and living together in Key West on a mission trip. And now I would like to present to you a lovely photo of some chick and Tracy and me after spending an entire day doing landscaping work in the July heat:
Pried straight out of my scrapbook with love.

The other friend with a new blog is Becky Ray, and she and I go way WAY back. We went to high school together, roomed together in college, and she was the maid of honor at my wedding.

I truly wish I could present to you now a picture of her back in 9th grade with her NKOTB t-shirt on, but I have no such photograph, and even if I did, I wouldn't post it because Becky and I did a lot of goofy things in college that she photographed, and knowing her, I am certain that her retaliation would be swift and sure.

As for Tracy's retaliation, well, I'm pretty confident that the worst picture she has of me looks exactly like this one, so I've beaten her to the punch.

So go on over and say hello. Tracy cleans up real nice, I promise, and Becky is one of the funniest people I know.


  1. You are so wrong for posting that pic! At least we look dirty and stinky together! I could almost smell you when I saw the photo. (OK, so I could smell me too, but that's beside the point) Oh, those were the days!

  2. I was a huge NKOTB fan back in the day. But honestly, why a reunion? WHY? Not a good idea.

    Thanks for the links. I'll have to check them out. :)

  3. That's right, I'm hilarious! As for me, I have renewed hope. Maybe my dream of being Mrs. Joey-Joe McIntyre can finally come true. Is he married?

  4. But the real question is: Did we remember the name of the extra girl in the photo?

  5. Tracee, her name is Tricia and she lived with us that summer, too, although I haven't heard from her since.... hmmm.
