So, Ann and I are going to a Halloween party this year and can't figure out who/what to go as. Suggestions welcome, using the Comments feature. Preferably something that has a linked theme for the two of us. (One year we went as Don King and the boxer he was promoting.)

If we pick your suggestion, you'll get a copy of Why Should I Cut Your Throat, my nonfiction collection, and a copy of the mass market edition of Veniss Underground from Pan Macmillan (which includes the novella "Balzac's War").

Yes, that's right folks--this blog is now determining what I dress up as for Halloween.

Deadline--October 20th (so we have time to prepare)...

Jeff -- How twisted are you and Ann prepared to be? Pop culture this past year was one big long parade of Hallowen costumes...

Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson

Mary Kate and Ashley

Martha Stewart and her West Virginia jailer (okay, that one hasn't happened yet, but, hey, you can beat the rush!)

Ann could be JLo and you could be one husband at the beginning of the party and her next one by the end, but that's kind of hard to set up.

Donald Trump and an Apprentice

Heh. I like all of these. One year, Ann and I almost went as pimp and prostitute (I was gonna be the prostitute), but I chickened out. So we'll see how nervy I'm willing to be this year.

You could go, in the self-referential spirit of City of Saints and Madmen, as Dradin and his mannequin lady love.

Or, for some tentacular goodness, you could be Hellatose (sans pool) and Bauble.

You could kill two birds with one stone by going as Janice & Duncan Shriek and advertise your forthcoming novel at the same time.

Duncan's outfit would be challenging to say the least.

I had a few that I meant to post earlier, though they have all been conceived in the early hours of the morning without the benefit of caffeine coping mechanisms.

At first, inspired by the recent presidential debate, I was going to suggest going as George W. and Poland, but I think that reference will have faded quite far into obscurity by Halloween.

Then I was thinking you should go as Baby-eating Cyborg Dick Cheney with George W. on a leash, like a feral hound.

But then I thought that it might not be pleasant to do so, even in pretend.

My latest (and certainly not greatest) is Punch and Judy.

That's all I can manage for now...

Thanks for all the cool suggestions. Hmmm. How to actually *do* some of them. Keep 'em coming.

Well, this is interesting. I did a blog search for caffeine intoxication and found your site. When I get some time I'll come back and find out where caffeine intoxication appears and how it relates - if it even does. Take care - nice work.
