I get in to Midtown this morning for work and as I am walking off the bus towards the front door of 30 Rock, this amazing LOUD collective shriek/squeal/scream echoes through the canyon of skyscrapers – that’s when I remembered that New Kids on the Block were performing for the Today Show’s Summer Concert series. What’s hilarious is that this whole plaza was PACKED with people, mostly women my age who were the prime audience for when the NKOTB were popular….which was like almost TWENTY YEARS ago.
Anyways, it made me chuckle – I would have hung out too just to be around the crazies (gotta love the crazies), but it was raining, so I was like ‘eff that’.
I did find out that Fergie and Alanis Morissette are performing next week – I will be definitely getting to work early for that one. I still am having trouble reconciling that one, unless they’re going to sing ‘My Humps’ together….OMG, what if that’s what they’re going to do??????? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.
On the elevator up this morning, I also shared it with this ridiculously attractive guy. Of course, me being the complete shy guy that I am around hotness like that, couldn’t bring myself to look directly at him (hotness is like the sun for me – don’t look directly at it!!!!). It was just us, and you know that normally you typically stand just facing forward waiting for your floor. Well, I was doing that, but the hotness was leaning on his side against the back wall, looking towards me. I think I missed an opportunity. STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!
