Show Me That Smile Again

Here it is, your moment of zen.

This chart shows the results of this very important quiz.


You can see that I am in the minority on this one. The most popular answers, with 11 votes, were Alex P. Keaton and N Sync. In second place, with 9 votes, were Alex P. Keaton and Backstreet Boys. (Really, people? The Backstreet Boys?) In third place, with 5 totally awesome votes, were Mike Seaver and N Sync. And finally, there is Jay Are. Well, not really finally because I had to create a special square that crossed the X axis since 3 of you could not choose a boy band or chose one that was not on the list.

So the only correct responses were by Janet, Christine, Jenni, and Laura B. You are my new best friends! Also, at least two of you are blonde, and two of you are lawyers. I am not sure what that means.

I enjoyed all the discussion of why you chose the people you did. H chose Alex P. Keaton and N Sync. He chose N Sync because he liked the group member who had hair like a pineapple. We debated APK and Mike for a while, and I can see both sides of the argument. I do prefer Michael J. Fox to Kirk Cameron, but when these shows came out, I had a bigger crush on Mike Seaver. Also, he had a friend named Boner, which I didn't realize was weird for a looong time. Mike Seaver was a goofy, cool guy with a heart of gold, and thus, he was my choice. As for the boy bands, I chose N Sync not just for the pineapple-haired guy. My roommate in college had one of their cds, and it had a song on it called "Digital Getdown." This was a song about cybersex. I kid you not. Did the Backstreet Boys have any songs about cybersex? No, they did not. Advantage: N Sync.

Liz gets some extra points for referring to O-Town in her comment. Oh, Jacob, Ashley Angel, and other guys, where are you now? I remember when you signed your cds at the Wal-Mart in Katy, Texas, and I thought that was kind of a random location. (I did not attend the event, in case you were wondering.)

I leave you with a picture taken today that will hopefully help erase your memory of my picture with those Peeps.

I think switching loyalties from Mike Seaver to Alex P. Keaton is all part of growing up. Also, it's part of seeing the vast difference between the way Kirk Cameron and Michael J. Fox turned out. I'm totally Team Alex these days, but back in the 80's...

Should I be embarrassed to admit that I actually watched Ashley Parker Angel's attempted comeback reality show last year, with special guest appearances by all but one of the other boys? I should? Okay, I am.

Dude. I'm still sticking to NKOTB. They're the obvious choices, since they STARTED the trend of boy bands.

Also, I wrote their name in fingernail polish on my wall, and when my mom found out she was mad.

But I defended myself, for I was in luv.

I have been AWOL from blogland all week, and my punishment is that I missed a quiz! AND a fine demonstration of questions to ask the Google Magic 8 Ball. I am sorry.

It's just as well, I suppose, as I always got the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync mixed up, to the point where even right now, I'm sitting here thinking, "Which one was Justin Timberlake in again?" I know you are shocked and appalled. Does it help if I remind you I'm five years older than you?

Also, yes, I like the new coat. :-)

I miss so much when I go on vacation! I really don't know what to say about your Mike Seaver loyalty, though. For me Alex P. Keaton was the first in a long line of crushes on Republicans.

don't call me MA'AM said...

I feel like a better person just for participating in these very important quizzes. ;-)

Very cool coat!

I'm so lonely! That'll teach me not to kep up with the boy bands.

Jenny said...

Damn. I'm a loser.

Okay, back in the 80's, yes, I had the Kirk Cameron posters on my wall...but now? I'm all Alex.

Rowr.

Oh and I watched the Ashley Angel comeback show on MTV. And I'm only slightly ashamed to admit it.

UGH I've been out of the loop and missed commenting to say Mike Seaver and N'Sync.

Ugh. :( Bummer not to be on the grid.
