This is NOT a Drill

When it's April Fool's Day and you see certain things come across the RSS feed, you often wonder if it's just a joke that the news outlets are playing on you. For example, I was poking through the news on the Channel 5 website yesterday and I see this article about a guy who went through a drive-thru at a Dunkin' Donuts nekkid.

I thought, and hoped, that it was a joke. Turns out it was not and I'm disturbed again. Then there was a slideshow piece I saw about a giant baby head getting delivered to the MFA in Boston. Turns out, that wasn't a joke either.

In any event - NONE of that is my point. Now I'll get to my point.

I subscribe to the Bostonist.com RSS feed on my Google Reader. I'd say about 50% of what's there is interesting, another 20-30% mildly interesting, and the rest is useless. But yesterday... oh sweet yesterday...

I saw this: New Kids on the Block: The Return

Oh sweet mother of all that is amazing in the world. I thought to myself, "This has to be a joke, right?" Turns out - it is NOT a joke. In fact, if you go to NKOTB.com there's a countdown clock that ends on Friday. What is Friday? Well, Boston's most awesomest boy band is appearing on the Today show where it is expected they'll be announcing a reunion tour.

A REUNION TOUR!!! In celebration of 20 years of Hangin' Tough!!!

I'm so excited. Not as excited as when we got married, not as excited as when I got accepted to DWC, but I'm still super duper excited in that giddy 13-year old way.

In honor of the occasion, a clip for you of one of my favorite NKOTB songs: "Cover Girl", sung by Donny Wahlberg. Enjoy.
