Jeremy was actually reading something he'd been assigned in class. Hey, Lysistrata was totally kind of fascinating, and it wasn't like he had anything else to do. He'd had a good night's sleep, so there was no need to spend his time napping, and he'd already handwavily ordered his Valentine's Day flowers for everyone.

He'd also bought two tickets to tomorrow's dance even though he didn't have a date. He figured he might still find one, and even if he didn't, well... It wasn't like he didn't have the money to spend on a high school dance ticket no one needed. He himself was going, either way. It was an opportunity to dress up and party, and if nothing else, he and Juliet could always write an exposé on it for their gossip column.

But right now he was just going to lay on his bed, reading an old play. And wearing his glasses, for once. Whatever, he thought he made the mildly geeky thing look maximum.

[ooc: Door and post are open!]

"So are you going to the dance?" Juliet asked, wandering in with no further fanfare. (Look, if he wanted her to knock, he could close the door, duh.)

She was pretty sure his answer was yes.

It was always nice to be right, and Jeremy wasn't going to be surprised either.

"Sure," she said. "It's a party. I'll find some girls to hang out with and see if there's anyone who ... y'know. Catches my eye."

Juliet hadn't been asked yet, but she really didn't care. Dating had never been her priority.

"Either way, it'll be a good night."

"You could," Juliet said easily as she took a seat at the foot of his bed. Clearly no one at the school would be dumb to say no to either of them. "Wasn't there anybody at the three-minute date thing who you wanted to ask?"

"I've seen her at sorority, but I don't really know her," Juliet offered, by way of judgment. "She said her last boyfriend was kind of old and gross."

And a vampire, but Juliet was intentionally repressing that.

"What was the first date? You should have told me."

"They put an observatory up there?" Oh, hey, it impressed Juliet too. "Wow. I guess maybe that just came with the castle. Sounds ... sweet."

She leaned toward Jeremy with genuine curiosity. "What did you talk Karen into?"

"You told her to send a second one for me, right?"

If he hadn't, Karen was going to have a pissed-off little sister to deal with.

"I should," Juliet agreed. "Besides, if it's floral I need to know which florals. And I have to know which celebrity either way."

It would be embarrassing to show up smelling like somebody uncool, though she wouldn't expect Caroline to know the difference.

"Not counting the random monkeys and rose petals?" Juliet asked, though affectionately -- she liked monkeys and rose petals. "Yes. I was starting to think they passed a law against parties or something."

"You missed little pink monkeys?" Juliet looked a bit disconcerted. "Um, I don't know. One spent about ten minutes cuddling me this morning."

"You should," Juliet confirmed. "It made my day better, anyhow. I want a pet monkey now."

No, she didn't. At least, not one she actually had to take care of.

"I'd have to let Anduin know and he might say no," Juliet conceded. "Hmmm. Maybe it could be at home, and I'd just visit it!"

"It could even have its own little wardrobe," Juliet declared. "Do you think Mizrahi designs for monkeys? We could make some calls..."

Lord help her, she was seriously considering this.

"I could," Juliet mused. "It would start a trend. Everyone would want adorable pink monkeys! Or custom-dyed, anyhow."
