The Weekly Ten: Most Common (and Regrettable) Party Pictures
Every week I make a list. Not a grocery list or a to-do list…or that list, because I don’t really do groceries (there is a reason why they deliver pizza) and to-do lists are totally not my scene (if such a scene even exists) and, unfortunately, I haven’t added to that list in quite awhile.
This week I’m focusing on the “click click flash” that consumes your weekend. You go out, someone inevitably breaks out the camera (every 4 minutes) and you start posing like you’re ready for the cover of Nylon. Great idea, but these pictures are going to end up on Facebook for the world to see the next day when you’re sober. Oof. And with today’s technology, you might be even caught in real time.
Actually, who isn’t?
10. Self indulgent “Take one of just meeeee!”
You always think this one is a great idea. I’ll tell you something your friends (especially the one taking this photo) never will: it’s not a good idea. I promise you, it never is.
9. Drinking game picture
Congrats bro, you won a binge drinking game. Super rad!
8. Drunken girl-on-girl makeout
Your boyfriend? Not gonna be thrilled. Ok, so maybe he will, but did you forget that your great Aunt Frances is your FB friend?
7. Mirror Myspace look
Looking good with a giant flash obscuring you. Classic.
6. Obscene gesture… or action.
That’ll help you land your dream job.
Oh, and not looking at the camera does not make this photo look more natural or classy.
5. Passed out with Sharpie in your face
If you have one of these, your friends are jerks. If you have more than one of these, you seriously need help.
4. Drunken Photobooth?
Just, why? Was there really nothing better to do while you were buzzin’?
3. Nonfunctional drunkenness
Another big, fat “why?” How is this attractive? And who was the jerk who took this picture? And freaking sent it to all your friends? But, seriously, why did you decide to lay right there?
Since when is drinking in a tiny dorm room scrapbook material?
