Yeah, it's a snapshot. But at least you're having fun.
Also, either it's "sobriety" (not soberity) or irony.

Greeting and happy new year from the critique club. Your title here is what rescues this shot. It certainly makes you think not only subject but photographer had one too many. Here's my critique hope it helps...first of all this is not a flattering shot of your main girl (tho she does look drunk). There is a lot of 'stuff' in the background, the doorframe the white door, this extra hand attached to no body, the balloons? on the top. I think you could of improved this shot by doing a much closer crop to start. And perhaps be adding the hand only person. The lighting here is also blasée (indoor light is usually bad unless studio lighting of some sort). I try to stay away from it when I can. Well I hope that helps, I find focusing on one aspect of shooting at a time helps, I think working on backgrounds may be a good place to start.
Keep shooting and learning : )

It's a snapshot and not very well focused one at that... Only thing I see that really fits the challenge is the title...

This is a fun capture, but perhaps would have more impact if cropped in or framed better in general.

Not a bad party snapshot, but it needs more care in composition and lighting to make it more than that.

I assume by the poor focus here that the photographer was drunk as well.

Hanging??? Looks hung!

Idea works, but the pointed-too-high composition and perspective/tilt is working against it.
