A once a year event (that will never happen of course) in which every half-baker can attend, as long as they come in the guise of their monicker, or else do a suitable forfeit that amuses the remarkable gathering.

       Naturally I'll be the one in the pilot's uniform.
RayfordSteele, Mar 25 2009
  

       err.... can I just wear a t-shirt ?
FlyingToaster, Mar 25 2009
  

       Oh, shit.

       Are we all supposed to have assumed persona-artificia? With outfits? Dude, somebody should have posted a sign or something.
WcW, Mar 25 2009
  

       um...I can do that, it won't be easy but I can do it.   

       hmmmm...

       ... let's book the bigger venue!
xenzag, Mar 26 2009
  

       You think *you've* got problems.
coprocephalous, Mar 26 2009
  

       Just got to paint my neck blue ...
neelandan, Mar 26 2009
  

       And here is your host... er... wait, what are you again [xenzag]?
theleopard, Mar 26 2009
  

       I wonder what [IanTindale] looks like?
hippo, Mar 26 2009
  

       Um... a mindful zigzag gone wrong? (I may have to do a party piece - though I did once go to a movie theme party dressed up as The Bridge Over The River Kwai)
xenzag, Mar 26 2009
  

       I guess I'll be the slightly tipsy one with a glazed look in my eyes. There should also be some sort of aura surrounding me. (Perhaps blinking like a Christmas Tree?)   

       I always envision [xenzag] as looking like rolling papers for illegal cigs.
blissmiss, Mar 26 2009
  

       I'm in!
calum, Mar 26 2009
  

       slightly balding accountant of British ancestry?
dentworth, Mar 26 2009
  

       I hadn't considered a self-righting mechanism for myself, but it sounds possible. It's probably an idea on here already.
Srimech, Mar 26 2009
  

       the *x* at the beginning of my name comes from a time when I split with my husband but was not legally divorced. So, now I have to come as a *divorcee*?? (red lipstick, big hair and high heels?)+

No shot offered I'm afraid. Myself, on the other hand........
gnomethang, Mar 26 2009
  

       All I have to do is turn up drunk and unable to write my own name...   

       I can do that!
Jinbish, Mar 26 2009
  

       Now how might I become a...
Spacecoyote, Mar 26 2009
  

       Fling yourself into the air, howling like a dog. That would do it for me.
xenzag, Mar 26 2009
  

       I'm stumped, aside from the stereotypical lumberjack outfit or red serge'd Mountie uniform...
Canuck, Mar 26 2009
  

       Ever heard of Red Green?
Spacecoyote, Mar 26 2009
  

       I shall come as Wagster. You do know what Wagster is don't you?
wagster, Mar 26 2009
  

       I am not coming as a Moebius strip again. And do we all have to wear our square brackets?

       Can I be the doorman and bounce [Bukkakinator]?   

       And I'll call everyone outside when [Phoenix] arrives.   

       I'll be the one dressed in a sheet.
zeno, Mar 26 2009
  

       Red Green & the MacKenzie Bros are simply urbanized variations of the lumberjack theme - plaid flannel shirt, casual pants, and toque or winter cap.   

       Now, maybe I should consider "Captain Canuck"... <see link>
Canuck, Mar 27 2009
  

       You could always come as a tin filled with "uck".
xenzag, Mar 27 2009
  

       [zeno] you'll never get there in time! 30 minutes before the party, you'll set off from your house at 30mph, then at half-way, your speed will drop to 15mph, at a quarter of the way, you'll have slowed to 7.5mph and so on until you're just reaching for the door....and the party will be over.   

       I had forgotten about Bukakkinator - yes, it's probably better for all of us if he stays outside...
zen_tom, Mar 27 2009
  

       //I am not coming as a Moebius strip again.//   

       Shame. Here was me thinking the fashion for wearing it would never end.
Jinbish, Mar 27 2009
  

       This could be done as a Virtual Party/Photoshop contest where we each just create our avatars in SecondLife. Coming as a stereotypical math geek will be easy for me....
