Um Hi, My name is Tori :) & I have the BEST friends EVAH!!!

So... apparently my undying love for New Kids on the Block was portrayed sufficiently enough in my blog for my friends to know and understand how bummed I was that I missed the concert on Sunday.
I had offers of a home to stay in if I flew to Salt Lake for the Saturday concert. I had trip itineraries planned out for me with the flights, tickets costs, ride to and from airports, etc..., and I had a rad call from Nobody.
I didn't answer my phone because I didn't recognize the number. I listened to my voicemail and it said, "You're just not answering because you didn't recognize the number. But it's Nobody. Call me back. Bye."
Wow. She knows me so well. I had her cell phone number in my phone, but she was calling from her home. I called her back, talked to Avee for a while (I was star struck and totally was like "I carried a watermelon..." when Avee answered) then I spoke with Nobo.

"So, what would you say if I told you I had some airmiles just lying around I'd like you to use towards a ticket to Kansas City so you can see NKOTB?" (My sis and her sis live in KC area.)

Wait a minute, only my husband has friends that call and offer him plane tickets, right?

WRONG.

So, since I was wanting to help Nobo use her airmiles I totally accepted.

"I don't have anyway to repay you..."

"Just let me stay with you when I come to Texas."

"Deal! You can even have the CLEAN kid's bedroom.:)"

Fast-forward to today....

Nobo is full of it. I mean, she really had the airmiles, but in reality that was the cover story to see if I'd be down with going to KC. Since I was TOTALLY down Nobo called me again today. This time I had her number programed in my phone. The screen lit up "NOBO" and started ringing "Summer Girls" by LFO.

Now she told the real story. She and her sister, S of S Sister to Nobody, had concocted a plan. They emailed my friends to see if they wanted to help send me to KC to see NKOTB. My online twin, No Cool Story, Suzanne, and Klin, along with Nobo and S, all chipped in for my plane ticket to see NKOTB. How cool is that? I was stoked before, but when Nobo told me this... I cried. I did. I cried because I really, really, really felt loved. Wow.

How cool is that? Are you so jealous?? Sei said he would blog about how jealous he was while I was lusting at Donnie doing pelvic thrusts. :) I will be opening my blog to him while I'm gone.

Anyway... that's all. I just had to brag about the awesome friends I have. I was so surprised and I... wow. Y'all rock. Thank you SOOOOO much. You have no idea how loved you have made me feel. Thanks to you I will be sitting in section 117 on Row 11 on Nov. 11 wearing my old concert tee. And I'll probably be crying.

I dedicate this video to you, my friends. It's one of my fave performances- I still have the video from when I taped it on tv. And just a little bit of trivia- this was at the 1990 AMA awards- the nite after the concert I went to in Oklahoma City (and met Donnie). Notice Donnie is hoarse from singing to me the nite before. :) And not only do I dedicate THIS video to you- I will make a new video of me doing random NKOTB dances from different videos. This is HUGE because I CANNOT dance. So... you certainly can look forward to that. :)

Thanks y'all. So much. Tori :) ♥ her friends.

I only jealous because Nobo calls you. Not because you're going to see NKOTB. Yeah, sorry.

No Cool Story said...

That Nobody is such a good liar.
Full of it I tell ya.

;) I love you Tori! Have tons of fun!! :D

Sketchy said...

You can have all my enjoyment of seeing NKOTB, I will it to you. It's not much, but you can have it all.

Enjoy your concert and awesome friends!

Tori :) said...

Carrot- Yes, you should be jealous of that. Nobo rocks.

NCS- YAY! You're back! I've missed you.

Sketchy- Thanks. I'll take your will and turn it into teenage-like squeals when they come out on stage. :)

swampbaby said...

Wow! That's awesome. I will totally be a poser at the concert, but it will be fun!! PS I remember you rewinding this tape over and over on the pelvic thrust part. You naughty girl.

S said...

I stalk you and I still can never be first! Whatever I had to take a shower sometime this week:) I am sooooooo excited for you. I just imagen how I felt when I saw Bovi, I can still cry if I wanted to. RED is making me play this video over and over! Oh crap! Maybe you can sneak her in under your shirt?

MommyJ said...

Oh wow to the video... I had forgotten all the charm and charisma that they possessed.. I hope they still have lots and lots of that left for your performance in November.

Nobody is awesome in all sorts of ways. And all your other friends too...

I hope you have fun. :)

omar said...

I just want to take this moment to brag that I coined the nickname "Nobo."

I can't say that I have anything to do with her generosity, though. At best, I could say that she learned some tips on lying from my "four truths and a lie" posts.

You do have some pretty rad friends. I hope you enjoy it! Just be sure to keep your undergarments on, k?

Physcokity said...

RAWK!ON! I'm happy to say that I know some of the coolest women in blogdom! Stories like this make me totally happy :D

Woot!

I'm stoked for the commandeering(sp?) of the blog should be veeeeery, very interesting. :D

glittersmama said...

Nobo for president!

glittersmama said...

I got a little teary reading this post. I swear there is nothing like good girl friends.

Physcokity said...

I think you should sneak in an extra set of undies to chuck on stage...no?

Physcokity said...

Tori :) I have one favor to ask, could you send me that Halloween/Democrat flair? I love it!

JustRandi said...

You do have amazing friends!!
I hope you have So Much Fun!

glittersmama said...

I say the "I carried a watermelon..." thing too. No one ever gets it.

Klin said...

What?! No one gets the phrase "I carried a watermelon..." ! Fine 'em and make them watch the show. I like love that show and when I read it I totally shouted "Dirty Dancing," but then Tori didn't ask what movie.

Tori, Nobody promised we wouldn't have to watch NKOTB and here you post a video. She really is a good liar, but in a good way. I truly mean that will all the love for you both.

I am honored that she counted me in. Now go have fun and do take an extra pair of panties (make 'em the sexy kind) to throw up on the stage. You know you're their best fan.

NOBODY said...

Oh my gosh. This is like being at my own funeral, but minus the being dead part. It's awesome. Post more about me.

I do have to say---S is the genius behind being a superfriend and having great ideas and loving Tori and well, living in KC.

And Omar is right, he is the genius behind Nobo. And his comment made me REALLY laugh.For several reasons.

Klin's right. I lied twice. Sheesh.

I can't say I understand the desire, but I am really happy that NKOTB will be making all of your wildest dreams come true. Here's to hoping Donnie doesn't have arthritic hips...

NOBODY said...

I would do this 100xs over for footage of you doing sweet dance moves.
That's awesome and I can't wait.

Suzanne said...

***hugs*** Tori! What a fun surprise this was! :D

Chel said...

Sweet! What great friends you are. I didn't realize what a die hard fan you were... :)

Anonymous said...

What great friends you have.. Have fun and tell hubby we'll be waiting for him to blog! :)
He be the hottie!
Just ole Ala Grandmother popping off..

swampbaby said...

PS I love your new political button. I think I just found my Halloween costume.

Nobody said...

Okay, i actually just watched the video.
How would it make you feel if I told you it made me laugh out loud 3 different times.
My favorite, by far, was "this one's for the children" and Donnie down on his knees. That was totally awesome.

Sei said...

The look on Tori's face when she got the news today was priceless. She came out of the room, eyes red, cheeks still wet from the tears and a smile that made my day. Y'all are awesome. Thankyou.

Yvonne said...

That is so wonderful--I am so excited for you and so glad you have such fantastic friends.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

Whitney said...

Wow. What awesome friends. That's so nice of them to do that for you!!! And I'm so glad you get to go see NKOTB!!!! :D

K said...

That is freakin' awesome! Hooray for good friends, and hooray for NKOTB!

Nobody said...

Wait a minute, you REALLY cried? I thought you meant like, "i want to cry" or that maybe a little tear welled up in your eye. I didn't know you---red eye, wet face cried.

I'm glad I didn't know that on the phone. I would have started stuttering or something.

S said...

Did I say WOOT WOOT enough yet!! Awe love Sei comment! I am equally excited for his post to come! I can't wait to get a heart by my name:) OH YEAH!!!

Physcokity said...

I too was expecting you to ask if anyone knew the movie ;)

Kylie D. said...

I went to the NKOTB concert Oct 2 in DC, it was wicked awesome! It so totally rocked. You will have a great time. Oh, and Donnie still does great pelvic thrusts.

Nancy Face said...

THAT IS SO AWESOME! I'm happy for you! :D

Too bad S and Nobody don't know me well enough to have my e-mail...I totally would have pitched in, because I love you, too! :)
