so last night the 'bf'* was begging to go to bed early so that he could get more than 3 hours sleep so i complied and was bedded when lo and behold, he's not ready. so to bide my time i innocently looked up some ringtones until i found the correct one. with the push of a button i lured nathan back into the room with the electronic beeps of "i want it that way
"TRACK TWO ON THE MILLENIUM CD!" he shouted with authority as he ran into the room,
crooning the lyrics (as masculinely as possible, of course).
who knew that my innocent ringtone search would spawn an hour and a half karaoke battle of songs that spanned from age 10-16? we sang ace of base, shawn colvin, will smith (oh, willenium
), n*sync, spin doctors, city high, outkast, eagle eye cherry, savage garden (chica-cherry cola!), fastball, gin blossoms, no doubt, christina aguilera, sugar ray, TLC!, the wallflowers, britney, coolio and so many more classics until it was 2am. we determined that if there was ever a 90's music trivia jeopardy, nate would go all the way to the finals. and then some.
who knew that between nate and i, we can sing every lyric of hanson's 'middle of nowhere' cd** INCLUDING the hidden tracks?! or that we both thought taylor hanson was a girl?
and no, it didnt stop there!! soon jewremy came home from the spectrum office and ben and him came in and joined in the discussion.. then i fatefully said, "remember that being completely terrified of the movie 'all dogs go to heaven'" and the rest of the 90s was no longer safe from our reminiscing.
THINGS I DIDNT KNOW PRIOR TO LAST NIGHT
+ nate watched (and liked) the cartoon "cowboys of moo-masa"
+ ben owned a glow-worm, nate owned TWO glow worms, one which belonged to his younger brother
+ i was the only one out of everyone in the apartment who has not seen 'ferngully'
+ nate owned TLC's SECOND cd (no not the "waterfalls" one. yes. the "unpretty" one.)
+ ben stole nate's spice girls cd "back in the day"
+ nate and ben both know all the words to "2 become 1" by the aforementioned spice girls
+ being jewish means you were deprived of all the things that made our childhood great
*OMG!!!11! i tottalee luv him!!11 he es so0o0o hawtt! lol
**let me make it clear that it is nate, not me, who knows all the words to "where did johnny go (yearbook)"?
