You have probably played this game on your phone before or your friends have been talking about it...well, I wanted to get in on the action and see if I could stump you!
Everyday, right before you head to your lunch break, check my blog for a new game. I'll post one around 11:45 every work day and I'll give you the answer later in the afternoon. Cool? Cool...let's do it!
Here are the pics.
I do. Unfortunately I went stag to both my junior and senior prom...I had a blast but, sadly, no date.
Here are some stats/fun facts on prom.
According to a recent survey by Visa, the average family spent a whopping $807 on each child who attended prom in 2011. Between tickets, attire, accessories, flowers, transportation, photographers and afterparties, many parents struggle to send their kids to the dance. To relieve some of the strain, nonprofits offering free, donated dresses have sprung up across the country.
"Corsage" originally referred to the bodice of a dress. Since women often wore a small floral bouquet around their corsage, the bouquet came to be known by its current name. While flowers have been worn for special occasions since ancient times—often to ward off evil spirits—corsages worn on the wrist or shoulder became popular in the 20th century, first at weddings and later at dances. In the 1950s, girls would give corsages made from candy to friends on their birthday.
Some celebrities say they were nobodies in high school, but Halle Berry and Rosie O'Donnell (REALLY?) can't make the claim: Both were voted prom queen. Though he plays a dorky teacher on Glee, Matthew Morrison was a jock and prom king back in the day. Cindy Crawford was both queen and valedictorian, proving that some people really do have it all (and making us jealous!).
While Reese Witherspoon and Tina Fey didn't even like their high school prom dates—Reese's date stood her up, and Tina's was a little too touchy—Bono and Jon Bon Jovi were so in love with their dates that they tied the knot with them. Both rockers are still happily married to their high school sweethearts today.
After about 600 tweets, a Minnesota teen landed a porn star prom date, but the school caught wind and put the kibosh on that plan. An 18-year-old Kevin McGuire was more successful with his arrangements: He secured a date with Taylor Swift via Facebook. While Swift couldn't attend his prom, she invited him to be her date at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Students at an Indiana high school badly damaged by a March tornado will get a special treat when country sensation Lady Antebellum plays at their private prom party in May. The Grammy-winning musical trio will also be hosting a public concert in the town to raise money for the community.
Prom is supposed to be the culmination of your high school experience, the final hurrah before graduation, a chance to celebrate with your friends, and a place to dance (unless your father is the town minister and forbids it). Regardless of what your expectations for prom were—or are—one thing is for certain: It rarely turns out as planned.
