To clarify, one of my best friends threw a party for *their* friend, who, having grown up in Ireland together, missed out on the American Teen Prom that they heard about through exported young-adult media.

They had balloons, punch, a band stage, and a photo booth. (That mural is the photo backdrop!)


Just look at this rad heckin bunch, particularly the singer who I did not summon the courage to flirt with. They're The Skates, which I don't know if it refers to the shoe or the fish.

In recognition of halloween, they crooned Zombie and Spiderwebs and what they described as a knock-off Monster Mash (which was better than the Monster Mash anyway, so nyah). I have video, but it's bigger than 40MB so welp. :flan_shrug:


They crowned a king and queen, and someone intermittently role played the stodgy chaperone, keeping everyone from dancing *too* close (she had a ruler just to be sure).
