On Saturday night I went to a "High School" themed birthday for a sweet family friend. Before I start this let me tell you about High School in Australia. We all wear uniforms. Every school, mandatory. We play rugby league and rugby union, not American football. We do not have cheerleaders. We do not have proms - we have formals. We do not have Prom Queen (or even Formal Queen).
As such the overall trend of the party was to dress like it was an American High School - so fun!
Here is the birthday girl - Lisa the cheerleader on the right. Her two sisters were hosting the party. Michelle on the left is in a netball uniform (hilarious and ironic as she did everything in her human power to avoid sports at school) and Carly in the centre is a band geek. She had a recorder sticking out of her back pack and the dorkiest shorts, hat and glasses. I sure hope they aren't just things she had laying around her closet...
There were loads of geeks, emo kids, some traditional uniforms (yikes how do these girls fit in those uniforms??). Most of the adults dressed as teachers which is really lame -o as they ARE all teachers! Including my English teacher mother and retired teacher father.
My costume was....Prom Queen! I made a super cute sash (at least I though so...) and had a tiara. Unfortunately I was one of two prom queens that night. DAH DAH DUM.
I actually got in a fight with the other Prom Queen. Can you believe it? As I was inside signing the guest book her and a posse of drunk meat head boys decide to provoke me, making snide and bitchy comments about me being an inferior Prom Queen. Hmm. They suggested we have a "dance off" to determine who was the true Prom Queen. Hello? I am a stone cold sober 32 year old lawyer and I am not going to "dance off" with a drunk 20 year old bimbo. I joked along with them thinking they were kidding around. They she got REALLY nasty and made comments about my dress (which is a dress I love and wore to my engagement party), shoes etc.
Yes she started it, but friends I ended it. She was stupidly unaware that she picked a fight with a sober woman with ten years on her who argues with super smart people for a living. A drunk light weight girl was no match for me. I think I may have referred to her skanky spray-on black mini dress, platform stripper shoes and scraggy hair. Ouch. I am not proud of myself for stooping to her level - but it was a genuine High School experience!
Here are some other fun pics from the party.
Emo kids, Dorks, cool kids (??), class photo and me with Lisa and Carly. See I am an elegant Prom Queen. There are no other pics of me as I was taking photos all night!
Here are the birthday girl's parents making a speech. Look in the background and you will see my rival Prom Queen!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
