Awkward Prom Photo

(OMG why is he wearing that suit I told him to rent a white tuxedo and now we’re going to look mismatched on the dance floor and these shoes are pinching and my hair didn’t come out right and I swear I still have some bean dip on my nose and oh now what’s he doing he’s going to smear my blusher…)

  1. Mary (the first) says:

    OMG the hovertext brings back memories of MY prom!

  2. Watch out . . . she’s gonna go into the ladies’ room and cry and cry and beg him to go away, then end up on the Staten Island Ferry making out with someone else’s boyfriend. 😛

  3. What? 😛

  4. Goodness, the poor thing does have bean dip on her nose!

  5. brownize says:

    Are we sure the thing on the right is just a cat?!?!

  6. That was da’ perfect caption for that photo by the way;)

  7. Samantha says:

    Man, this reminds me of my awkward prom photos. I just went with my friend who I think kinda had a crush on me so I felt weird getting too close to him in photos. Then at the dance my friend just took awkward pictures of us eating.

    ANYWAY, I wish I was as cute as these cats in them.

  8. love the lean in!

  9. @Samantha, you should have used my method. Oops, what a giveaway. 😛

  10. chanpon says:

    I knew I should’ve just taken my brother to the prom!

  11. skippymom says:

    Holy carp, did somebody sneak into my house and take a picture of Chloe and Eddy? This looks just like them, from the coloration and the size difference right down to the personalities and attitudes. I am stunned! Okay, well, Chloe doesn’t have that much white on her face, but I swear that IS Eddy. He lurves Chloe, and she puts up with him. As far as I know, they’ve never been to a prom, but who knows what they get up to when I’m not home.

  12. kibblenibble says:

    Large grey kitty on right looks remarkably like my George. He might say, “Here lemme get that bean dip, sweetie.” *slurp*

  13. kibblenibble says:

    skippymom, so I guess your Eddy looks like my George! 🙂

  14. skippymom says:

    kibblenibble, how old is George? Does he also have that “male pattern baldness” thing going on? Eddy is six and a half.

  15. What a great photo of two gorgeous kittehs! I hope they enjoy the prom.

  16. shannomo says:

    Flashback to really, really bad prom date! If he starts trying to lick her fingers, she needs to put him out of the car! Love the kitties face, she’s like, what?

  17. @skippymom

    Did you click on the source? These cats are named Cleo and Buddy- that’s freakishly similar to “Chloe and Eddy”!!!

  18. skippymom says:

    Katey, whoa, no I didn’t know that. Freakish indeed. What the heck is going on?

  19. fatgrammafinn says:

    should skipped the prom and gone straight to the spody-ody party…
    5$ a cup, in the woods behind the abandoned k-mart

  20. What a great capture! Makes me want to smooch someone…like maybe a sweet kitteh.

  21. @ Theresa Hey that’s very close to what I did at my prom except for the crying.

    My date went outside to smoke “something” I asked him not to that night ( it was the 70’s need I say more?) When he came back to the table his seat was occupied with another guy!

    I had a great time the rest of the evening the second guy was a much better dancer!

  22. smoooooch

  23. kibblenibble says:

    skippymom: George is only 2 and a half. No “male pattern baldness,” although I’ve had many kitties who did have it! Never heard it referred to that way before! 🙂

  24. domanato says:

    awww so cute…reminds me of my high school years…check out this kitten that gets slapped by his mom for dressing up and wearing a top hat:

  25. MamaLana says:

    Ah, Prom night!

  26. BStrange says:

    “….And he smells like cheap kibble and he’s stepping on my foot and….”

    😀 Gray kitty just wants some lurve, but calico thinks he’s got some nerve!

  27. @Domanato :
    OMG ! How sad for that little squeaker ! I can’t remember the last time I wanted to pick up & comfort a bebeh as much as I wanted to comfort THAT one!

    Did you see the skating babies/Evian video after the kitten one ???
    I almost had to go change my jeans !!!
    THANKS for the vids!

  28. I skipped my prom but if I had known there were going to be KITTEHS there I totally would’ve gone.


  29. Yeah, but then he embarrassed her even more by drinking the Zima he smuggled in, and then dancing The Safety Dance in front of everyone!

  30. my sister is insane she wont shut up

  31. wannadance says:

    that slitty-eyed look on the boy’s face!! he must be a southern fella…they all look like that just before they try to make a move. that just slays me, snork, giggle, kof, snorkity, snork…

  32. puddlepeppers says:

    Anytime I let someone else do my hair for a big evening,
    I so sorry. Always give kitties a ride to the prom in your
    boyfriend’s car–kitties like to bat the little car-scents
    hanging from the door handle. Last awful, NEVER
    give your sister’s ex-boyfriend and his date a ride to
    the prom…I will never be forgived for that one.

  33. Puurrfect example of “throwin’ down the ol’ sly side-eye”!

  34. 😆 The grey kitty must of said “I love you” to the calico kitty before giving her a kiss on the check 😆

  35. These cats are just like mine! Down to the spot on the nose!

  36. Hovertext: Is this Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel? 😛

  37. wannadance says:

    ‘throwin’ down the ole sly side-eye…’

    yes yes! so glad to finally have a word for it…it’s a very southern thang. the south: put a fence around it and it would be a big nuthouse’ (florence king ‘southern ladies and gentlemen’. required reading for anyone to wants to stay sane in the south…

    southern cowgirl

  38. Hon Glad says:

    Hey Cali, think yourself lucky, you’ve got a hadsome boy there.

  39. NTMTOM, you are in fine form! The write-ups for this post and the trampoline one are A+++! 😀

  40. HA! My sister always calls her Tuxedo cat her “prom date!”

  41. Patches'Adventures says:

    He is the wind beneath her wings!

  42. Love the black “bean dip” on the nose. Kinda makes me wish I’d gone to my prom…

    Wait. No, no it doesn’t.


  43. I’m coming back again to say I just love this picture. It just strikes me as so sweet and truthful and funny, for some reason. And as Homer Simpson put it, “It’s funny because it’s truuuuuuuuuuuuue!” 😀

  44. That is just freaking adorable. Seriously. Wish my kittehs were this affectionate with each other, they only just barely tolerate one another, sigh. Much like most of my high school years.

    Let’s see, since we’re sharing embarrasing prom date stories, I had this “friend” who had a prom date who though he could “slide into home” that night. He never made it to first, lol. What’s the phrase I just heard at my husband’s softball game, “he struck out looking”?

    and in the shameless self promotion dept, if you want you can click on my name to see my latest pics of Bella. 😉

  45. Kitty love!

  46. Queen of Dork says:

    I LOVE all of you Peeps’ prom stories! Especially as I never went to Prom. I was all, “what? Who cares?” I don’t have time for that. I have to fly to Japan tomorrow with the ballet company. Boys? Oh. You mean those muscular things who lift me while on stage when the music cues them to do so? Oh. Those. At least that was me at the time. In retrospect, I probably missed out on something judging by your sweet stories and memories of it 🙂 But the picture is so sweet and it really looks like the boy is kissing the bean-dipped-nose girl. But he doesn’t seem to have given her a corsage for her wrist/paw. Also, he looks like the kitty who lived with me, Picard. (Picard would have kissed a girl that way. Except he was so tough, the girl would have been a racoon or cougar or something).

  47. Queen of Dork says:

    Kitty Grey and Kitty Calico are like this song. They’ll sing it as grandparents later in life as they tell their grandkittens about their Prom:

  48. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    🙂 🙂 “grandkittens”!!! 🙂 🙂

  49. wannadance says:

    queenie: oh, you dint miss ANYTHING. i hated it. i hated high school. i was dancing or rehearsing or singing or reheaarsing. every other daggone girlie was in the pep squad (which i was not allowed by dance and voice teecher, as you know).
    i resembled other high school girls except for the abstracted hate-filled look on my face.

    i was never invited to one party or dance, never had a social group or a girl friend or a boy friend. no wonder i couldn’t wait to graduate (at 16yo) and run away to rice institute…

    i miss dancing anad singing and walking and being in college and having college or work friends and all that.
    am finally, at nearly 70yo, understanding the meaning of the word ‘lonely’. has nothing to do with my precious solitude. it’s something else, but ah don know what. just that it hurts.

    on mah pity pot and apologies to all,
    droopy dancer

  50. Queen of Dork says:

    wannadance: I sooooooo love you for saying all of that here! I don’t care that some people get really, really mad if you express your own personal stuff here…I myself think that’s why this is such a unique community of really wonderful people. Sweetie, I LOVE you and I miss dancing as well, although I can’t say I understand how you feel missing walking…I couldn’t begin to imagine that and your are a brave person! My very, very, very best hugs and love to you, wannadance! Big Huge Hearts!

  51. Too cute! Ok she is blushing and he has had a few too many shots of scotch!

  52. wannadance says:

    queenie: you are so kind to hold me up by mah ear tops. i am prone to sudden and severe bouts of depression which go away suddenly, too.

    i didn’t know people got mad if we got personal. shoot, now i don’t know WHAT to do. always thought i could blow it out on the net. sighhhhhh.

    tired and all pooped out.
    all love to you, queen of all,

  53. what a cute couple :X

  54. Hon Glad says:

    wannadance, as they say, let it all hang out, I don’t mind, its interesting,
    and Queenie is a kind soul.

  55. Heck, I wasn’t even in the country for my prom. However, I would be proud to be seen with that handsome fella.

  56. Queen of Dork says:

    Where did everybody go? Did anybody have this song played at their Prom? (disclaimer…I in know way support any killing or eating of spotted calves. I didn’t write this song..Sir Elton John must have. I just think it’s a really cool song. End)

  57. BStrange says:

    This picture makes me wish I still had the picture of my Sheltie being “kissed” by two of the kittens he was babysitting. They were fascinated by dog breath, all teeny tiny whiskers flared.. So cute. 😀

    Seriousness Warning, Qte aficionados stop reading here!:

    @wannadance & QoD: I avoid it for privacy as much as courtesy (I loves me my prec-i-ous solitude too), but personal stuff doesn’t bother me from the “regs”. I know you’ll bounce back to teh Qte soon enough. 😉

    & wannadance: I lost the love of my life after just a few years, so much of it spent apart out of mutual necessity: life’s curveballs, duties, work… Always saying “we’ll make up for it later”. Hindsight hurts. It’s lonely, but I was very lucky to find even one person who suited me to a T; I am NOT the easiest person to live with. (Which should surprise no one. 😛 ) And I still Do Not Want anyone else.

    So, if it helps, it’s not just you rowing the “I like my solitude, but life has a hole in it” canoe out here in web-space. *e-hug*

  58. QoD, thanx so much for the trip down memory lane — with the lyrics, no less! I never had any idea of half of what EJ was singing in this song — and had no frickin’ idea he said anything about killing a fatted calf – wowza! It’s funny when you read the lyrics with him singing, yer all like, well, of course that’s what he’s saying! Now at 46 yo, I understand!

    Back in the day when this song was first out, I was a klutzy kid trying to roller skate at the local rink without falling on my a____ or getting run over by the speedier, more agile kids, and this was one of the many EJ songs they played. Later in junior high, I became best friends with a gal who worshipped EJ — as a matter of fact, that’s what she always called him — EJ. I never worshipped him, but I did like his tunes, but not so much in the last 20 years or so.

    Dang, I guess I’m being an old fart now, reminscing about old times. Anywhoo, thanks QoD for the lyrics and the memory buzz!

  59. Oh, and @ wannadance and QoD — I agree that it’s totally OK to share yer personal bits. And wannadance, it’s OK to feel sad — just go ahead and feel it! But I hope that yer heart is back to dancing soon! Hugs to you! 🙂

  60. Queen of Dork says:

    Zippy: Here’s another one. I’m so totally digging the red pants in the background and the thing the guy is doing with the phone cord! Old, good times for sure!

  61. Queen of Dork says:

    Oops! disabled. Aw well.

  62. BStrange says:

    I hadn’t heard “Heart of Glass” in ages. I like music from that era. And if I may add a set:

  63. BStrange says:

    Part 2, the palate cleanser:

  64. Why do I think I should be hearing banjo music in the background?

  65. QoD, unless there’s another version, that song is by The Turtles. Just sayin’.

  66. Queen of Dork says:

    catinapastlife: Oh. I didn’t know that. I just posted the Blondie version because I thought maybe that would be kind of fun for people to hear. I really wasn’t trying to debate who sang it first. I really don’t even care who sang it first. I just thought it was a fun song to post. I guess I’d better stick to just talking about the pictures posted, huh? Adorable kissing cats! 🙂

    P.S. Why does everybody say “just sayin”? Where does that come from? Is that a saying from some movie or something? People say that alot.

  67. Queen of Dork says:

    Pssssst. *whispering* BStrange! Here’s one more from me to you. (Love the big hair!)

  68. QoD, thanx for the Blondie vid – another 70’s memory! This reminds me of my freshman year in high school, dancing at the local disco club (at the local Holiday Inn, no less) on “Teen Night.” Had a disco ball, and everything baby! Well, except booze . . .

    I thought DH looked somewhat stoned (though gorgeous), but I looked up the song on Wikipedia, in which a critic was quoted as saying in the video that DH was “looking too bored to live.” I guess that’s what made her cool, huh? Oh, and catinapastlife, if yer talking about Heart of Glass, no, it wasn’t done by the Turtles, according to Wiki. It was written by DH and Chris Stein. And no, QoD I have no idea where “just sayin'” came from.

    Also loved the Supremes vid — DR looks much more lively than DH. And the big hair is a hoot! Though the “Motown” sound was before my time (well, unless you consider being a toddler at the time my time), I love a lot of the Motown stuff – the Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, etc.

    Well, gang, that was fun – now I gotta get to bed! Good night, y’all!

  69. Queen of Dork says:

    Hmmmmmm. *pushes nerdy librarian glasses firmly upon bridge of nose and reads off of documents on clipboard while cat winds around legs* hmmmmm. Well, officially, the start of the Supremes is quite before my time as well. Although this particular song, Where Did My Love Go, was released (I think) in the same year in which I was born, the year of Nineteen Hundred and Sixty and Four. Ahem. (coughs) *sips from a cup of tea, places clipboard carefully away and rubs Ben-Gay on achey muscles.*

  70. Queen of Dork says:

    I mean Our Love. Not mine. (cough and ahem)

  71. BStrange says:

    QoD: I like that one too. And oh, the bouffantery! The big floppy bows on their dresses! How were bouffants ever popular? They looked like they needed tire pumps to stay inflated…

    Speaking of the Supremes, this one’s my take on music for the two kitties above, from an “advice to Gray Kitty” perspective:

  72. Queen of Dork says:

    Ohmigosh BStrange! That just caused me to have the biggest smile on my face as well as much dancing around in here! Thanks for that!

  73. Queen of Dork says:

    Peeps, I know I’ve posted this before but it just seems to fit so well with the picture. It just seems so…Promish. Or Prommy. Or Prom like I guess. 🙂

  74. Queen of Dork says:

    Whoa! I just thought of something promish! Yay! Stand by while I try to find it.

  75. Queen of Dork says:

    Yay! Olivia and John! Yay!!!

  77. darkshines says:

    I was really relaxed and happy at my prom, but I was laughing at all the girls who weren’t. Being a steampunk, I wore a full ballgown, but it was entirely black PVC! The really snooty Head Girl was laughing at me, asking why I wore a trash bag to the prom and stuff, and I just shrugged her off knowing she was probably wearing some off rack/second hand bridesmaids dress. Later when we were having the dinner, she cut into a roasted potato and a massive spurt of grease shot all the way down her classy salmon pink number. I casually remarked “If that had happened to me, I could have just wiped it off”…….. 😀

  78. Bookmonstercats says:

    QoD, wannadance and BStrange (and anybody else I’ve missed). It’s ok to let it hang out on Teh Qte. It’s a kind site. I wouldn’t visit it, much less post, if it weren’t.

  79. BStrange says:

    @Bookmonstercats: Black PVC ballgown. I wish I could have seen that!

    @QoD: “Promish”, I misread as an abbreviation of “promiscuous” at first. Which on a post about cats and proms would not be entirely inappropriate I suppose. *ahem* And Travolta in the “you’re the one that I want” vid seems to be doing a pretty good impression of Gray Kitty as hovertexted above. Goofily in love. 😀

  80. Queen of Dork says:

    Everybody, this is off topic but it’s so cute and funny! It IS about a cat. (The one who lives with me). You know how brand new phone books magically appear at your door sometimes? Well, I was looking through mine last night (yeah, yeah I know. I still use those things sometimes) to call a place. I put it on the floor by the couch. (yeah, yeah. I haven’t put it away yet). Anyway, my cat seems to be having a love affair with it! He keeps laying down with the top half of his body on it with his front paws delicately placed neatly together. It’s totally cute! After a while of that, he rolls off of it and lays next to it and kind of hugs on to it! Now I can’t put it away because he loves it so much! 🙂 He’s laying next to it as I type. Cats can be so weird sometimes! But I suppose they think we’re rather strange creatures too.

  81. Queen of Dork says:

    Zippy: I know what you mean about not knowing the lyrics to a song. When I was a little kid, I used to sing this song like this:

    I can see clearly now, the rain has gone.
    I can see aaallll popsicles in my way….

  82. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:


    Howdy Ms. Q. are you still monitoring (giggle)

  88. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:


    No!!!!! Are you still using the F-16 or can I use it now?

  89. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    (PS: they’ll kick us outta CO any minnit now ennyhow…)

  90. Queen of Dork says:

    I’ll send it back. SamKitty was really mad and threatening to launch the bomb. But as his little paw was poised in the “push the button” position, he suddenly fell fast asleep. (I just fed him before all of this). I think he’s actually too lazy to push the button. *shhhhhhhhhhhh. let’s not wake him up*

    Another good sign: (still whispering) He’s called off the Men in Black that he had previously hired to kill me for not having the exact flavors of food that he wanted.

    Ok, doing a drive-by checking for updates on my way somewhere and I saw QoD’s “I can see clearly now, the rain has gone. I can see aaallll popsicles in my way….” post. Which made me giggle my silly head off. Thanks! 😀

  97. Queen of Dork says:

    Hahaha! “pizza burger” When this person I know was a little kid, his mom told him she was going to the dentist to have a bridge put in. Well of course when she got home, he looked into her mouth fully anticipating seeing a small, tiny bridge with little cars driving on it.

  98. BStrange says:

    QoD: Kid Think is funny sometimes! Of course some people (dads, older brothers…) can’t resist seeing how far a kid’s leg will pull, sometimes. HarrumphnotthatIeverfellforit,okaymaybeonceharrumph, I say.

    ‘ducks in the wind…
    all we are is ducks in the wind…’

    it made sense to me: brave little ducks flying, the wind flapping they lil feathers and they feets…

    speaking of messing with kids. this actually happened to me. i was TEN YEARS OLD before they told me the truth:

    my grandfather told me that if i could put salt on a bird’s tail, i could catch it. i spent a huge portion of my childhood running around their backyard, under its great shade trees, circling the fascinating fish pond, in the cool grass, with a salt shaker in my hand, trying all sorts of methods for putting salt on a sneering bird’s tail. i had it all worked out:: the salt would weight the bird down and it wouldnt be able to fly.

    finally, when it got embarrassing even to the adults sitting on the large screened sleeping porch, shaded by fragrant cedar trees, drinking forties drinks like ‘old fashioneds’, they confessed that if i could get close enough to a bird to put salt on its tail, then i could catch it.

  103. Ducks in the wind! I love it!

    The men in my family are the all-time champs at messing with kids. I couldn’t begin to tell you the BS my dad filled my head with before I was five years old– which I would then go out and repeat.

  104. darkshines says:

    Actually it was me, not monster, and here is a picture of me in it from one of my photo shoots 🙂

  105. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: I DO NOT mean to offend anybody here at all in any way. But here’s an example of a dad messing with his kid. My boss years ago told me that when she was a kid, her dad told her that those little, white bumpy things in the road were there to keep people who can’t see in their lanes.

    (aka do you miss, being gone from Italy?)

  110. Hon Glad says:

    I surely do, but the weather in dear old blighty is just as hot. This green and pleasant
    land is turning brown.

  111. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    yeh much the same conditions here in SE America.

    If I weren’t in Fla the grass & treeez would be getting brown ‘cuz the heat has indeed been hot (near 100 many days) but y’know we also get “The Drenchings” here, generally scheduled at about 4 pm every day during The Summer (which is basically anything other than February and November).

    Thus far The Drenchings have kept the Botany from becoming ashen grey.

  112. QoD, I wasn’t trying to debate you. I’m just surprised that there’s a Beatles pic where the song is by another artist. Dem was not fightin’ words. 🙂

  113. BStrange says:

    @Theresa: Hey Theresa! 😀

  114. @kibblenibble Holy crap! Our cats must be twins! My kitty looks JUST like the gray one and his name is George, too!!!

  115. Emmberrann says:

    Gray kitty has a suspicious resemblance to Mr. Picky, but we have no calico friend/prom date to lick. (Mr. Picky is an only cat, and he seems to want to keep it that way.) The side-eye is exactly how Mr. Picky looks at me when he wants me to think he’s not lookin’ at me.

  116. hamster5000 says:

    almost so sad!

  117. My Dad used to tell me the tap room was where he went to go tap dancing.

  118. yup this is exactly what my prom photo looked like. No, I’m not a cat. yes, it was awkward 😀

  119. warrior rabbit says:

    catinapastlife, I was really confused by that, too, since it was the Turtles (always loved that song), but I’m sure she just embedded the code and someone else goofed.

    A friend of mine’s dad used to tell her that they had a lost Native American relative named Falling Rock, and the signs ‘Watch Out for Falling Rock’ were just his family trying to find him.

    [wow. the thread that unwound from this post really did remind me of my high school prom: top 40 music and a small group of girls happily chattering about something completely indecipherable.

    at least that’s what it was like in the girls bathroom, which is pretty much where i spent the entire night.


  122. So… are you (speaking to M-i-T) a girl or a boy? And if you are a boy, what in tarnashions were you doin’ in the girl’s bathroom???

    And, by the way……. when are you (again speaking to M-i-T) going to come out of training (so to speak) and introduce yourself? Hmm?? And are you the one who is filling those beeeeeg shoes that Sir Theo left behind? Hmm?? Inquiring minds want to know.

    omg so cute! it actually looks like a kitty prom foto. shes all poised and smiling and he smooches her. adorable!

  124. @SPB aka inquiring minds

    TA-DA! i’ve just taken myself out of training. i think i’ll just have to introduce myself, since the overlords have their paws full right now. i will be filling theo’s shoes, although i will be removing the laces, adding a nice cuban heel and swapping them for something strappy once in awhile.

    what i’d like to know is what people want in a moderator.

    i tend to be snarky, but if you bark at me, i’ll get very small, very fast.

    my mission? to follow meg’s advice and act as “a bouncer at a tea party.”

    if i were posting my own introduction (and not just hiding in this comment thread) i would say,

    “ladies and gentlemen, if you start to feel nuffy, please use the oxygen mask on yourself before pouncing on other passengers.”

    thanks for asking, btw,
