Rockin' The Doily

Since Squirl brough up old memories of prom, here's me in my doily covered dress:

Note the delicate, petrified hair tendrils locked into place with ozone destroying spray.

Note the delicate, petrified hair tendrils on my date locked into place with ozone destroying spray.

Note my clench lipped smile.

Note the stabbing of my scary fake nails (which terrified my friend James for weeks afterwards) into my date's palm.

Note the fact that I hate my date.

Boy, did I ever hate my date.
Random Fruit Fact: Muscadine Grapes

Muscadine grapes have killer tendrils. Not unlike my hair for prom.

"Look for tendrils that have wrapped around the cordons and arms. These tendrils become extremely tough and wiry. Unless they are removed, the tendrils will girdle and kill shoots or cordons"

Yeah. Tough, wiry, killer tendrils. The grape people must've been around when I tried to wash out all that Aquanet. Learn more about the muscadine grape, here.

    Oh, Plum...only you could rock the doily with such aplomb.
    And if it makes you feel any better, your prom date is well on his way to baldness now. Hope that makes you smile, the thought of his tendrils becoming sink worms.

    Sink worms. Thanks, Bucky.

    Thanks, Plum, I appreciate getting to see your dress. It looks fine. I think I was pictureing a little round doily right under the neck or something.

    You really don't look happy there. Hope the whole night wasn't that bad.

    I am assuming your date went on to bust as a punk rocker... or he could be a really lame fabio impersonator. And if you still have that dress, post it on ebay, you'll make a killing...

    It looks like you're giving your off-camera friend a knowing smirk, "I am so gonna ditch this loser after the first dance."

    Oh, wait. That's what *I* did at prom.

    Love the pic. Mine is so bad. I went with a hot guy who I was just friends with but he was into The Cure and wore eyeliner in our picture. EYELINER. IN. OUR. PICTURE. Enough said.

    1. Your date's hair is large and reminds me of Fabio. Hehehe.
    2. Southern Fried Girl, what's wrong with the Cure and some eyeliner? Now I'm curious to see THAT picture.

    I can't decide who has nicer hair.

    You are lovely. Just stop with the doilies. That's Battenburg lace isn't it? That was my wedding hairdo. I feel your pain.

    You never mentioned you dated Kenny G in high school!

    I married my prom date. I divorced my prom date. Are you digging into his palm with your nails on purpose? That would be funny!!

    Nice tendrils.

    The look in his eye says "I'm so cool. I'm sooo getting laid tonight."

    The look in your eye says "I hate this dork. He is sooooo not getting laid tonight."

    That dress is great! Mine looked like I came straight from the set of Gone With the Wind...I think I was in mourning.

    That young man is lucky you hated him. Had you gotten too close, you would have put his eye out with the plasticated tendril.

    you know - I saw your post at home last night & then immediately scanned in my junior & senior prom pictures & emailed them to my work address to post over on my blog today & the FUCKING EMAIL DID NOT GO THROUGH!!!!! I don't have a scanner here & I didn't feel like downloading Hello at home last night. So, it might just have to wait...although, I wonder if that would qualify for "funny dud" SPD tomorrow?? hmmmm

    You looked very pretty, why did you hate your date?

    I still have my prom dress. I pulled it out for a video B shot for a company I worked for a year or two ago. Sad part is, it's TIGHT, but I can still get into the darned thing. I got lucky, a whole huge group of us went stag to protest the ticket cost. They were only going to offer a certain number of single tickets. So even though we technically had dates, we didn't use them. Even better, we reenacted Indiana Jones scenes in the hotel for dinner, took photos of all the different sorts of meat, and then left when the dancing started so we could play video games and watch the Alien movies. (I think only 1 and 2 were out at that point) Good times, man, good times.

    Bucky – You’re psychic! Bucky, The Illustrious Sink Worm Prophet.

    Squirl- Prom improved considerably after I busted out my flask.

    DaveM- How’d you know about that wannabe rocker thing? Uncanny, I tell you!

    Misfit- I don’t remember waiting until the first dance. Girl, as soon as the picture was done, I was GONE.

    SFG- One of my guy friends wore giant Mickey Mouse hand gloves to the prom. But a dude in eyeliner beats all.

    Meggan- Dude, I had totally forgotten about Fabio…Ha!

    Torrie- Mr. Date totally beat me in the hair department.

    Susie – How do you even have time to talk to me? Last time I checked you had NINETY SEVEN comments! And yes, that is Battenburg lace, thank you.

    GEORGE! – Worse than Kenny G. Mr. Date was a drummer. Gah.

    Lawbrizzy – The nail digging was completely subconscious, sadly. Sorry about your date…

    Closet Metro – You are one smart cookie. To quote the beastie boys, “He said ‘can I get some?’ I said ‘you can’t get none!’ ”

    Holy Schmidt – Pictures, girl! Pictures!

    Mrtl – I looked like Medusa, but with hairspray.

    Silly Nessa – Crap! I should’ve waited until tomorrow for funny dud day! I bet you looked pretty!

    Airea – It’s not like Mr. Date was Satan. But that’s a whole separate post…

    Echrai –Indiana Jones re-enactments? That’s rad! Pictures?

    Whew what a night that was. I still wake up in a cold sweat, screaming with memories of that night. You know my date wasn't any better, but at least I didn't have to party with 100 dead goldfish and a drummer.

    How could you hate someone with such sexy rockstar hair? Hey, Constantine, next time ask ME to prom!
  21. Blogger Amanda B. posted at 6:53 AM  
    I totally would have dated him in highschool. Aw, who am I kidding, if I were single I'd date him now.
  22. Blogger Caroline posted at 12:23 PM  
    Hey, I'm a drummer! That's NOT worse than Kenny G. Your corsage looks like a dead animal...

    I didn't go to my prom.
