Okay. So Saturday night November 15, 2008 was the New Kids on the block concert at the E-Center in SLC. I just have one word to say about it……. AWESOME!
I went to the concert with two of the most excellent cousins a girl could ask for Jenn & Alesha! They were nuts and were quite a source of entertainment for me during the night.
The concert was very fun and I'm so glad that I decided to go. I wasn't 100% sure that I wanted to go all the way up to and through the opening acts, but when the real show started I was so glad I was there. It was AWESOME. Just thinking about it makes me smile. John has mocked me for the past 2 days because I have a New Kids compilation CD in the car, but I don't care. He can mock me all he wants because I love the New Kids! Here is where I inject a girlish “Eeeeeeeeeeee!!” squeal because seeing them in concert was like being 12 again and being totally enraptured by Joey-Joe McIntyre and the music. It was nice to just let go and be a squeally teenager for the night, dancing right alongside all of the other 30-something housewives that were there.
By the time the concert was over we were all high on love and the adrenaline of such an excellent show. We giggled incessantly and couldn’t stop shouting at each other because none of us could here. We all sounded like we had been sucking helium. While waiting in the parking lot to get out I started a game of count the minivans, but I only counted to five before breaking down into a fit of giggles.
Needless to say it was worth the $20 I paid for my ticket... If I had known it was going to be so great I would have paid so much more.
Pictures coming later. They're not the greatest, but you'll get the idea.

Olly olly oxen free
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For the 1978 black comedy film, see Olly Olly Oxen Free (film).
The exact origin of the phrase is unknown, but etymologists suspect it is a childish corruption of the German "Alle, alle auch sind frei!", (literally, "Everyone, everyone also is free!"), which is purported to have been a cruel joke often played upon Holocaust victims by their jailers. At any particular time, a prisoner might be released, immediately upon which the phrase would be shouted. Any other prisoners who also left would be killed further down the road by Nazi soldiers.
Gordon Leeman. WWII: The True Story. 1987.
William Cartel. History of Germany. Revised and Expanded. 1815-1990.
The etymology above is highly suspect, though ingenious, as the phrase was almost certainly in use long before WWII. The phrase referred to is also not proper German. That would be "Alle, alle sind auch frei!" or better "Alle anderen sind auch frei!" (Everyone else is also free).
Another theory is that it is a corruption of the phrase, "calling all the outs in free".
The phrase can also be used to coordinate hidden players in the game "kick the can", where a group of children hide within a given radius and a "seeker" is left to guard a can filled with rocks. The seeker has to try to find the "hiders" without allowing them to sneak in and kick the can. In many areas the phrase used is "Ally Ally In Come Free" which is a way to tell all hidden that is time to start the game of trying to get in to the can without being caught. Another phrase that has a similar meaning and possibly similar root is "come out, come out, wherever you are."
Now that I have finished reading this book I really just don't know what to say about it. It was so hard to get into in the first 100 pages until the children showed up... and then after that... meh.
