In Lewis Carroll's book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, no-one is late for the mad tea party. In the 1951 Disney movie, the White Rabbit puts in an appearance at the part…y, saying "I'm late, I'm late" but it isn't clear what he is late for. It's possible that he's late for the party, or he might be late for something else.

Oxford English Dictionary: "party pooper, a person who spoils the social enjoyment of others, typically by being gloomy; a killjoy. party-pooping n. and a., (a) n., the… practice or an instance of spoiling the social enjoyment of others.; (b) adj., that spoils the plans or social enjoyment of others." Poop has several meanings, of which two could be relevant. Since about 1900, poop has meant (in child-speak) either feces, or, as a verb, to defecate. Since the 1930s, as "pooped" (or often, pooped out) it has meant, as a past participle/adjective, tired out, exhausted, worn out. To poop out is to become too exhausted to continue, or to give up, usually owing to exhaustion, but sometimes just to drop out or fail to continue for unspecified reasons.. The 3rd edition of the Shorter OED, (1944, with regular corrections to 1970) makes no reference to "party-pooper", which suggests that the origin is modern. The 2005 7th edition of Collins English Dictionary declares "party-pooper" to be "c20 originally US". Merriam-Websters Online Dictionary dates the term to 1954.
hey are u cookin or is that just me
I would assume something to do with the Mitford sisters. Look them up; they're really interesting. In terms of describing a party I'd say rather "Bright Young Things", if that… makes any sense.
This is actually a pair: Person 1: See you at the party. Person 2: Not if I see you first. The implication is that if Person 2 sees Person 1 before Person 1 sees Person …2, then Person 2 will then approach Person 1 him/her.
you are late to the party
It Means That it's better to arrive but arrive late than never to arrive at all.
"The bus was late," said Nadia
A party bus is a vehicle usually one that has been previously used as a conventional bus or coach that has been transformed into a vehicle that can carry up to ten people and …is used for recreational use such as weddings, proms, parties, casino nights etc. It is usually unless requested otherwise, chauffeur driven.
The verb would be "was", as the subject "Sharon" and what she is doing is "was".
I don't think so... but it sorta sounds like it could be.
you late to a party
The meaning of the phrase "too little, too late", means that a chance had been given to make a gesture or do something about a problem, and then when something is finally done…, then it means that not enough effort was given.
