Two weeks to go? We might have a mock draft going by then, if you're looking for alternatives... :-D

Seriously though, I'd start with #1 and see how it goes. Then, just work your way down the list. If you get to #6, I'd try this:

1) Learn instrument. Preferably something that can be plugged into an amp.
2) Found band.
2a) Make sure other band members not as good-looking as you. Check if Dave Grohl is available, perhaps.
2b) Ask folks at Cafe for input on kick-ass band name. (Something like Billy and the Boingers, maybe. Oh, wait, that's been done.)
3) Get band invited to play at dance. This removes the need for a date, and presumably earns you serious style points as well.
4) Collect phone numbers during breaks between songs. Be careful to collect everything thrown on stage in case phone number scrawled on piece of attire.

Sound like a plan? B-)

(Seriously: start with plan #1, and take it from there. Good luck! ;-D )

Just go with a friend to the Homecoming. Who care what other people think? If they ask you about bf/gf issue after the dance, just laugh it off and let them know the truth.

If you're worried about what other people are thinking, ask other female friends at Homecoming and have one dance with them (making sure you let them know they are just friends).

This isn't a formal date party so go there and have fun and socialize. You'll do great ;-D

And foreigner say Chinese people worry too much about face

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

LOL, hmmm, I'm not sure, but I think doing all that in two weeks could be cutting it a little close, maybe it's just me. :-? :-D

LOL - that's good thinking Arlo - only you could think of something like that ;-D Too bad I was in chorous in middle school (we had to take a music class, then we could forget about it in High School) so we would definately have the "wildest" band there if I was part of one - the notes would be so random!.

A few of my friends told me they think they are my campaign managers for repeating as Homecoming Prince/King (I don't think the whole thing is a big deal, but everyone else does :-? I keep it low-key, so I don't think every girl knows it) and they suggest I need a date cuz I'm the Prince/King (not necesarily true that I MUST go w/ someone although I'd like to, but it may be a first if I go there w/o a date and I won something last year).

They're trying to pair me up w/ someone - not necessarily a bad thing, but it seems weird that everyone says they'll get me a date. Today's target for them, who I would consider going with if it came to that, posed for a pic w/ me while some kid almost "on-cue" took the picture. She even seemed to know what was happening at least a little bit as I remained puzzled lol :*) . I'm just a little confused here.

You're clearly being set up to feature in a highly embarrassing reality show. Relax, enjoy the ride, hope you get royalties, and let us all know what channel it'll be on! :-D

(Actually, the part about relax and enjoy the ride was serious. ;-D )

I wouldn't go for the "set up" thing, more times then not its gonna turn into a siatuation that will make you wish you never went at all. If you are 100% confortable with asking a friend to HC, do it, but keep in mind you are friends so if you see couples like nibbling on each others ears don't do it to your friend cause you think shes hot too. :-) I love Arlo's idea, seems like the way to go. ;-D But seriously, heres how i go: If you feel like you shouldn't ask someone, don't. Because usually that means you are not definite that the answer is YES, and that is what you want. If you find someone you are fairly confident will say yes just ask them casually (if you are getting butterflies in your stomach then its not a sure yes). It'll be fine.

I think this thread was like 9 days dead. :-D
