The exalted and gruesome Hypatia, President of h2g2 and all round evil bi - uh, party animal, has declared that Halloween 2007 must be celebrated in accordance with Clause 13a, Subsection (b), Paragraph 7 of the h2g2 Riot Act.
For all of you that may be unfamiliar with this that means:
So, dig out all your old Bauhaus LPs, find someone to do the Monster Mash with, and most importantly prepare a costume that would make the Addams Family1 envious to ring in All Hallow's Eve, Samhain, or whatever you wish to call October 31st!
You need ask? Okay, just to clear up confusion the Party will take place over the night of October 31st where ever you may be, so don't despair about time-zones and the like. Just make sure you come in a suitably vile costume, and as always Halloween marks the time for h2g2 Nickname Anagramitis so don't forget to mix up your letters too! That way it's kind of a masked ball affair. Sort of.
The event will be held in the Pentagram Room of Alabaster House, with the Witching Hour marking the beginning of a seance, where the resident spirit guides of hootoo will try and make contact with those on the other side2, using a qwerty keyboard for a Ouija Board. If that fails, we'll just tell spooky stories and tales to scare ourselves silly!
Bring along a plate if you like, although the caterers are able to provide necks and big toes for the resident vampires and there's a wide selection of goats to choose from for sacrifice, or those of you who have a more discerning palate. Unfortunately the brains are off, so zombies may like to pack a picnic basket. We've had words with the chef, and it appears the chicken is also a bit frisky, and don't rely on spirits being on the menu either.
Up For It?
So all you witches, zombies, ghouls, werewolves, vampires and generally scary fiends, if you want to come, pop your name below in the Conversation and you'll get an Official Invite nearer the date.
