Post Prom

The Anipal Prom was definitely the place to be on Friday night! We were Trending on Twitter at #2 WORLDWIDE! Everyone was there!

We even had a marvelous article written about us! Check it out! We're famous! A Night to Remember

I want to post as many prom pictures as I can, so if you would like to have your picture included, please email me your picture with your Twitter handle at Im trying to gather as many as I can but Im afraid Ill miss some! Ill include them in a future post.

I want to thank everyone on the Prom Committee for all working so hard to create such an incredible event.

Nike @Nikepurrfektcat

Nike came up with the prom idea, so she was essentially the Committee Chairperson. She worked incredibly hard with us to organize this fantastic event. She created all the beautiful prom pictures for the prom venue, wrote the dance contest rules, scheduled the contestants, helped with the PR, helped judge the dance contest, and kept everything running smoothly all night.

Truman @TweetingTruman (that's me!)

I set up the main prom blog, created the menu (thanks so much to those who helped with suggestions), gathered all the committees information for inclusion on the blog, performed prom publicity on Twitter, helped judge the dance contest, and worked behind the scenes with planning and coordination.

Phi @3phibotticelli

Phi worked with Dylan on scheduling the DJs/Barktenders for the evening, helped with prom planning, performed tireless publicity on Twitter with numerous tweets and discussions about the prom, helped coordinate the dance contest on prom night by DMing and tweeting contestants.  Phi is this incredible warm, beautiful, doggie with an unlimited supply of energy!

Bode @4catsstrapski

Bode was responsible for all the fabulous Prom favors and Prom Court prizes. He has such exquisite taste! He worked hard on Twitter prom publicity, helped judge the dance contest, helped with planning and coordination, and kept me sane during the hectic dance contest with his warm, witty DMs!
Herman @Tattlecat and Belle @Frankencat1

Herman handled the Temptations/Dreamies contest, set up a Prom King/Queen blog for voting, handled the votes, announced the winners throughout the night, worked tirelessly on Prom publicity, and performed Barktending duties with Belle on Prom night. Of course we must not forget his legendary six visits to twitmo on prom night!

Belle helped with prom planning, worked tirelessly on prom publicity, performed Barktending duties with Herman on prom night, and helped us all stay focused with her cool, calm demeanor!
Dylan @Dylcat1

Dylan worked with Phi on scheduling the DJs/Barktenders for the evening, worked tirelessly on prom publicity on Twitter, and helped us all stay focused with his cool, practical, and calm demeanor!
CK @CheshireKitten was our photographer for the evening, who created breathtaking keepsake photographs that will be cherished for a lifetime! Thank you so much CK!

The dance contestants all performed superbly! Thank you so much for all your hard work! I immensely enjoyed your dancing!

Thank you to all the wonderful DJs and Barktenders who always make these events so much fun!

Thank you to DJs @MaggieTKat, @Kaitokamui, @Frankietheig, @SantheWatcher, @IamRustyCat, @germanshorthair, @Kingtittifruiti, @Bea_Bells, and @RealFakeGator!
Thank you to Barktenders @WinstonTabby, @TiggyBean, @DuchessCrabtree, @PepperPom, @Tattlecat @Frankencat2, @ToughTeddyBear & @HenryTheCat2002!
If I've forgotten to include anyone, I do apologize. Please let me know and I'll include you!
Thank you, everyone, for a marvelous evening!

Anipal Prom!!

Welcome to the 2012 Twitter Anipal PROM!

     As you arrive at our exclusive PROM Venue, please enjoy the fragrance of the night-blooming jasmine on the soft air this summer evening. Walk up the pathway, lit with lanterns that will guide you to the reception area.

          Here, our PROM Photographer will snap a photo of you, you and your date or you and your friends in all your PROM finery!

          There are a variety of seating options for you: here are a few from which you may choose. There are no assigned seats:

A romantic lantern lit table on the lawn...

Or an intimate table on the patio lit by thousands of twinkling fairy lights...

Or perhaps you’d prefer an exotic tented and ivy garlanded spot!

     The dance floor will be open all night, just waiting for you to shimmy shimmy shake--or snuggle tight! And our DJ’s promise a never ending variety of great tunes!

          If you prefer, you may take a moonlight stroll through the gardens and along the stream side. Keep a look out for the Faeries!

A romantic lantern lit table on the lawn...

The buffet will be open all night, as will the open bar, so enjoy!

Here is a menu of all the noms and drinks available from your Barktenders!

     There will be a variety of lovely PROM favors as well as prizes and gifts, and of course the ‘crowning’ event: selecting the PROM King & Queen!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012


Come and join us for the Midsummer Night's Dream Anipal Prom on Friday, June 8, 2012 from 5 pm to midnight, EST. The prom committee Nike @nikepurrfektcat, Bode @4catsstrapski, Dylan @DylCat1, Phi @3phibotticelli, Herman @TattleCat, Belle @Frankencat1, and of course me, Truman @tweetingtruman are working to create a prom to remember!

There will be music, dancing, nommy food, and great friends. You might even be voted prom king (or queen). Guys-be brave and ask your favorite anipal lady. Go shopping on the internet and find your tux. Get your girl a corsage. Girls-go shopping on the internet to find that special dress. If your favorite anipal guy hasn't asked you, ask him!! Or, gather a group of your anipal gals and go together. We will all be partying and having fun together, so a date isn't mandatory.

Click on the "Prom Info" tab to go to Nike's website for detailed prom information. Click on the "Vote for King & Queen" tab to go to Herman's website to nominate your favorite candidates. I am finalizing the menu and will have it posted in a few days.

Help us out by tweeting to all your friends to spread the word! Any questions, feel free to ask any of us on the prom planning committee. See you all at the prom!! #anipalprom
