We’re all just water, skin and bones. Boring. (And gross…unless you’re into anatomy n’ such.) It is the random stuff in our personalities that make us…us. One of MamaKat’s prompts for this week was to give “15 Reasons You’re Awesome”. (But, because I’m a keener, […]

Positivity is not about being soft, It’s about being smart

  “…positivity is not about being soft, It’s about being smart.” I love this line.  (And not just because the remix of NKOTB’s “Games” was so badass it blew my 14 year old brain the first time I saw the video on Muchmusic’s Coca-Cola countdown.) […]

On this day in NKOTB history…

July 3, 2012 by NKOTB, Those were the days No Comments

July 3rd 1989.  New Kids on the Block release their breakthrough single “Hangin’ Tough”. And millions of  diehard Blockheads were born.  *teenage squeal* Let’s all throw our hands in the air and wave ‘em like we just don’t care!  Word. (And curses to all you […]

CMT, Cellulite and Cassettes

I’m 11 weeks postpartum and working my ass (as well as thighs and stomach) off to get rid of the pregnancy poundage. I was smart with this pregnancy – I knew that what went on had to come off. My daily pilgrimages to McDs for […]

Smattered Natterings from my sausaged fingers…

Please excuse the random, bulletpointedness of this entry. My fingers are sausage-like thus making typing on my netbook a challenge surpassed only by my trying to ignore the Ruffles chips and jalapeno dip beckoning to me from 3 feet away. -The Pud had his check-up […]

How Oprah helped me land a Huz….

I could spill Pepsi down the front of my white sweater and today would still be the ultimate in awesome. Facebook could close down forever and today would still be the ultimate in awesome. Kate Gosselin could become the next President of the United States […]

>I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)

June 3, 2010 by NKOTB 3 Comments

I don’t use the adjective love lightly. I don’t love McDonald’s cheeseburgers – but I think they’re tasty. I don’t love the new wallpaper in our bedroom – but I think it’s funky. And I don’t love my new flirty dress – but I do […]
