an embarrassing prom photo, and two nice ones

When I'm not blathering here, I'm often spreading the joy at other blogs.

You might have already seen me today chez Cary, showing off my senior prom dates on List of the Day. That's right, I said dates, plural. High school was an interesting time for me.

Here's the uncensored version:

Since neither of us had dates, I went with my best friend. We decided to take the ubiquitous "pose in front of a lattice" prom picture with our friend Señor Green Suit to be funny. What was even funnier was that he was blazed out of his mind. We ladies kept it classy with rub-on armband tattoos, plastic floral candle rings around our updos, and hooker-riffic glue-on nails. Ironically, I painted mine a sparkly blue color called Corvette Shimmer. Before the dance, my friend and I had a romantic lukewarm dinner at the Olive Garden where she worked. We probably looked like our dates stood us up.

Because I am a fancypants, I went to three Okemos proms total. My senior prom pictured above, and proms my sophomore year of high school and my freshman year of college. My dates for those, while they were actually male, didn't add much to the pictures, so I've cropped them out. Behold:

I loved that dress with the bows.

I've also been sending pictures (but not of myself) to Vanity Plates: Creepiness in 8 Characters or Less (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and the English Fail Blog. Jason is probably embarrassed by my constant picture-taking, but I think populating the internet with entertaining blogs is a public service.

You're welcome.

I am so glad you posted an explanation. You have no idea how much time I spent thinking, "I really didn't think she had a tatoo."

All 3 dresses are pretty. Love the dude's suit! And the head band he's sporting is a nice touch!
