Today started off as a regular old day… woke up late, scrambled to get dressed, scrambled to get my daughter dressed, frantically grabbed everything we needed for the day and flew out the door. Usually I wake up and check my email, but today I was later than usual, so it wasn’t until after I dropped my daughter off at school I decided to give my Gmail a quick look and saw this:
My day, week, month, AND year are now forever changed. And this also explains the Jordan Knight dream I had on Saturday night- my subconscious knew something great was coming! Forget that doing ANY work today has gone completely out the window, because I spent the better part of my day researching the how and HOW MUCH… and coming to terms with the fact that the Botox I lobbied hard for- and was promised- for my graduating with my AABA in May will now be forfeited for this. Fine… maybe I can just get it when I get back!
Then comes the hard part… convincing the husband. He was OK with NKOTBSB once, twice he was definitely pissed about, and was BULLSHIT about the Backstreet Boys Cruise. So naturally, he was INFURIATED about Nick Carter ITO Chicago… (hahaha), but we all knew I was going. Just like we all know I will be at Mix Tape Fest in August ;-)
I sent him the email that I received from Block Nation this morning (if you don’t know what Block Nation is, you may just be in the wrong place), and his reply was “You’re a psycho.” LOL, but that wasn’t no, right????
Curious to see if I’ll be going with his blessings, or hearing about this for the next ten years… but either way, I WILL BE THERE!
We all know how I was sleeping with my NKOTB sheets and trying to get the plastic underwear off of my NKOTB Ken dolls in the 80s, I had a poster of LL Cool J on my CEILING for the better part of the 90s, the whole Backsteet Boys aspect goes without saying, Kelly Clarkson is my would-be life partner if we were both lesbians, and they are ALL going to be in the SAME PLACE!?!?!?!? Also, Shecky’s Girls Night Out is going to be there doing events (which, btw, I’ve been DYING to go to their events in Boston for YEARS, and get the shaft every time)!!!??!?!? I’m sorry, but this is MONEY WELL SPENT. And let’s consider it a cost of doing “business,” because let’s face it- this festival is the culmination of my blog’s work. All that’s missing is Lionel Richie sitting at the head of the table leading us in a rendition of “Easy (Like Sunday Morning)” on Day 2.
Let the games begin!
