I may be kinda boring right now, but others aren't!

So, still trying to decide if this blog thing is worthwhile, and I am going to take the advice of a friend to check out other tools for blogging other than what is available here on blogspot. I suspect this will probably happen when I am bored out of my brains in KL for 3 weeks waiting to sort out some visa stuff. In the meantime, I'm updating the 'blogs I watch' section of my blog - and highly recommend checking out Cheryl's adventures since she seems to be having a way more interesting time that I am right now. You may find a correlation to some of what Dylan is up to - call it quirkly coincidence perhaps...

When does New become Old?

So I did it. I got tickets to see NKOTB in concert. And boy am I excited! w00t! :)

Regardless of the ridicule directed at me from my gormless peers, I am really looking forward to the concert - it'll be my second live viewing of them - 16 years later and on the other side of the world.

Admittedly their latest album will not contain 10 No. 1 songs, but what album does? My only question is why they are back to being the New Kids On the Block on certain websites when I distinctly recall the official name change to NKOTB back in the day of the No More Games album. Perhaps it just is a question of marketablilty. No biggie, I know who they are either way.

I have been privy though to several snide comments though about the av
erage age of the group and how they are no longer 'New', but then really, when does New become Old? 'Old Kids On the Block' really isn't going to cut it, and 'New Men On the Block' makes them sound like they either cry a lot or have undergone a special kind of operation (cue the comments about Jordan's voice).

I could say NKOTB (long or short versions of the name) is not about being soft, it's about being smart, you suckers (in-joke for all the fans) but in the end, it is whatever works for them. And it's working for me - so bring on January 24!

Better late than never...?

I am still undecided. I registered this blogspace a year and a half ago with grand intentions about keeping people up to date on my travels and adventures, and in a manner very typical of me, I did jack all. Lazy could be my middle name, but I'm not really sure how it works with chinese names that have had surnames moved around for anglicised purposes. Maybe Su-Lazy-Boo might work but that really doesn't roll off the tongue.

SLaziBo perhaps?

I'm not feeling it.

Anyway I am off on a tangent. Again.

So. Back to this being a good thing - I guess we will have to wait and see. Don't worry though, there won't be any signing off like Gossip Girl. So annoying.
