Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

    We are coming, sheesh. Discussing parking right now.

  • twogoats

    Would you mind standing in an available parking space? Will be along in about an hour.

  • Doglessliberal

    And if Layne really cared about us, he'd be there.

  • chascates

    Odds are the Christine O'Donnell witch costume will be most prevalent.

    • Crank_Tango

      I figured I could go as COD if I just let the bush grow out. Not that I am a chick, but I don't think that matters much, everyone would totally get it.

      • Kitty_Sanchez

        I can only speak for myself, but if you're gonna be showin it off, I'm happy you're not a chick. *raises an eyebrow and winks*

        • Crank_Tango

          LOL just lemme know where to send the pics.

  • HistoriCat

    For those of us exiled to far-flung regions of the country:
    Pics or GTFO

  • SayItWithWookies

    I will be acting especially boorish this evening in the spirit of things — I hope some of y'all saved snowballs from this winter to throw at passing unmarked police cars!

  • lochnessmonster

    Were I in DC I would not forget it but I'm not so I will.

    I call blatant geographic discrimination! Why are these always in Washington?? Why haven't you done one in New Jersey?

  • V572625694

    I can't go and don't have anything funny to say here, but wanted to see another cat 'gravatar' in the lineup.

      My cats send you meow points…

    • Kitty_Sanchez

      Aww. Here's a point from Kitty Sanchez, too.

  • http://themysterydance.blogspot.com/ OCKerouac

    I will make every attempt to get so drunk at the event I attend that I'll THINK I'm in DC with the Wokette Skum.

  • natoslug

    So . . . who's driving? I need someone to pick me up in Arcata, CA. I don't like to stay out too late these days, so I'll probably also need a ride home around midnight. anybody?

    • http://wonkette.com Ken Layne

      Arcata? Just smoke a bowl, and the party will come to you.

      /meaning, there might be a good movie on the teevee or something.

      • natoslug

        Just smoke a bowl? That's stereotyping, that is! Just because I live in Humboldt doesn't mean . . . oh, yeah. Right, pizza, a Buffy marathon and a hazy shade of something it is then. And not just because you didn't want me at your elitist DC Halloween bash. < sniff! >

  • Crank_Tango

    Any ladies in Rochester wanna party? Huh?

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    I've created little cardboard cutouts of all the editors and interns of Wonkette. They're all placed around a little Barbie kitchen set that I “borrowed” from some kid in the neighborhood. Every tiny figure has a genuine Wisconsin firecracker glued to their ass. Sometime around midnight or just before I pass out, I'll light the fuse and face the direction of the Wonkette Halloween party, which I wasn't able to attend, and raise my glass. Salute my friends!

    • natoslug

      Adds greater poignancy to the term "blow it out yer ass!"

  • Limeylizzie

    I am sharing my sushi with my foster cat, Trevor and wishing I was able to be there ,dressed as Colette the brave yet softly yielding French Resistance operative…

    • bagofmice

      Does this involve one breast hanging out?

    • easynewz

      'Allo, 'allo and cheers, Lizzie. I shall be dressed as Leclerc (in disguise, of course).

  • finallyhappy

    Sorry, could not make it tonight(and I did buy chocolate too). Look for old me tomorrow- my sign says "We!" I should be easy to find among the many attendees-I am old and you know what I look like-or not.

  • HurricaneAli

    Agh, I wish I could be there! Is there a way you could live-blog it with streaming from c-span?

  • bagofmice

    I'm at a bar downloading apps. Have fun guys!

    • http://johnnyzhivago.blogspot.com johnnyzhivago

      You can't say that anymore without sending a dollar to Apple.

  • Kitty_Sanchez

    Pictures, pictures, pictures! Post 'em! Some of us are out here in the hinterlands, far from D.C., and we're feeling very left out and dejected! *kicks at rocks*

    It would cheer us right up if you could post the most drunken Wonkette fuckos doing stuff that will embarrass them when they sober up maybe in a few days. Please??

    • MissTaken

      Wonkette fuckos don't understand "sober up". We just stay drunk.

      • Kitty_Sanchez

        Yeah, I figured. I'm jealous.
