Tonight's Dream... Tomorrow's Memory

Okay, yeah, it's a corny theme. But ya know, if it wasn't it wouldn't be prom! Yes, I decided to go to prom after all. At first I wasn't going to go, unless a good friend asked me or something, just because I really wasn't interested. But then Lisa got her dress. It's amazing how that can change so many things! Including one's mind.

Anyway, yes, Lisa got a black spaghetti-strap dress that was simple on the top, but the bottom was really cool. It was frilled and it cascaded down. (High in the front, floor-length in back.) We took her shawl (she got ready at my house) and put it up over her shoulders, used a little black thingy I had laying around the house that looked really nice (wow, what a great description!) and pinned the shawl in back with it. It looked like a little jacket! It was really cute!

My dress was also spaghetti-strap, until I took the extra shawl they gave me and used the material to have sleeves put on. They're not long sleeves, just frills, but it covers! It's really pretty. It starts out at the top as a copper color (pretty close to the color of my hair) with beads all over it. The mid-section is kind of a cream, and then the bottom goes back to the copper. It's full-length. The only thing is that the shoes I got kept snagging the bottom of the petticoat. That stunk, but it wasn't too bad. And when I wore it the next day to Seminary Graduation, I opted for just my normal Sunday shoes. It doesn't really matter because you don't usually see my shoes, since it is a full-length dress.

Anyway, prom was lots of fun! Lurson drove Lisa, Charlene, Cosmes, and I to the Dai-Ichi. Lur didn't go. Char and I actually paid for a couples-ticket and went together... hey, we saved five bucks a piece! When we got there we met up with Laura Hogan (whom I shall call Elle Ach) and her date, Bryan, and then Laura Bucher (whom I shall call Laura) and her boyfriend Caleb. We had lots of fun hanging outside during the portion of prom where they play the stupid music... which out here isn't really that long because they also serve dinner, play games, and read out the superlatives. We took pictures. It was cool. Inside Elle and I played against four boys in musical chairs. We beat the guys and then she committed mutiny and beat me! BAH! But she has to share one of the two water-park tickets with ME! The two people that I voted for won the KING AND QUEEN! That was awesome! They've been dating for a year or so now, and they are the nicest, cutest, sweetest, two people in my school. Not to mention they are very funny!

Okay, now that I've written enough for you to read as part of a curriculum, I am going to close. I shall write about certain important prom things (such as the funniest outfits) tomorrow, then I shall write about Seminary Graduation the next day, then I shall write about what it's like to be a model for Coca-Cola the next day. STAY TUNED! ;)

Wow, I do miss Saipan sometimes. I know it sounds funny but I wish I could be there for some of that fun stuff. There is a lot of great things here, but it is not home. Saipan is home.

Keep cranking away at Jack-in-the-box.

Sounds freaking awesome, our "Prom" was a bit different, but I had a lot of fun. I realise how much I miss my friends back home just reading your blog. Sounds like you had a blast, and a Seminary Graduation to top it all off, how awesome.

Yeah, I wish you were here too, Justin, then I'd have a date! ;) I got a letter from Leim. He says to say hi.
