Help Me Help Her Get Help

Today’s post is a shout-out for some assistance. My girl Sarah over at Snarkalicious is quite obsessed with NKOTB, which, if you’re unaware, stands for New Kids on the Block. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate her obsession probably about a 76. And that’s being conservative*.

Sarah, who saw NKOTB in concert twice last year, just bought a ticket to another performance, and she spent the extra bucks to actually meet ALL of them.

Anyway, being the fiscally responsible wife and mom that she is, she was trying to think of a way to raise a little bit of cash to pay for this “5-star ticket” so it didn’t have to come out of family finances. So she has listed this on eBay. If you are a NKOTB fan or know of any, would you please pass on this information? I thank you, and Sarah thanks you.

*Before you start throwing anything (rocks, insults, whatever), please think back to your high school years. Certainly there is something or someone that you might consider “obsession-worthy”…I know for me, if I had a pretty good shot at meeting Adam Ant, Duran Duran, or any of the members of Berlin, I’d be losing my mind right now.

    Haha Gotta say I love your enthusiasm for wanting to help Sarah.

    Luckily that whole boyband, popstar, celebrity obsession passed by me and I have yet to be fanatic about something.

    Maybe I ought to think about throwing my panties at J.D. Salinger or some other worthy author 🙂

    I hear ya! My obsession was The Cure, Jane’s Addiction or Depeche Mode…LOL

    I’ll keep my ears (and eyes) open for people to send in her direction!

    I did my share I didn’t make to much fun of her at lunch yesterday! 🙂

    And do you really only think it’s 76…that number might be a little low! 😉

    Kat: Luckily is right. Nah, don’t bother. You’ve got better things to do.

    Qweenie: Good choices! 🙂

    Melissa: I bet you did! And I know, I was being conservative with 76. 🙂

  • Sarah

    You are all so mean to me.

    😛 That’s me. Sticking my tongue out. At ALL of you.

    And Berlin …. really?!? 😉

  • Sheri

    I can completely relate. I just found out that Bruce Springsteen is coming to my area – yes I know I’m aging myself – but I have always said I’d give anything to see The Boss in concert. A little obsession is a good thing!

  • Melisa with one S

    Sarah: Yes, Berlin! John Crawford is HOT!

    Sheri: Ooh, go see him! 🙂

    Sue: Remember Charlie’s Angels trading cards? Fun!
