The thing is, I don't have that many friends, so I need to make sure people will be available to come to it. Also, I need to come up with a decent theme for the costumes. Something that will let my friends show off the fact that they're smarter than I am. I'm contemplating doing a 'come as a favorite literary character' theme so I can finally show off my Ignatius J. Reilly look*, but I'm afraid this might be a little too twee. Or possibly not twee enough. Other possibilities include the ever-popular Dead Celebrity costume party, the come-dressed-as-an-abstract-concept theme, or the Dress-Like-Another-Person-At-The-Party theme.
Ideas? Attendance? What are you doing for Halloween, pumpkins?
*: Rumor has it that in the allegedly upcoming film adaptation of "Confederacy of Dunces", the role of Ignatius will be played by, of all people, Will Ferrell. This is completely misguided that I am praying for the ghost of John Kennedy Toole to kill Mr. Ferrell to ensure it doesn't happen.
