Wow Im surprised I havent seen an offical Towel Day thread yet.

Surley im not the only fan of Douglas Adams around here!

For those who are not culturally enlightened, the 25th of May is Towel Day , a celebration of Douglas Adams, and the legendary series he created: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

any true fan of Douglas Adams will on this day carry a towel around with them, as per the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

Quote:
A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have. Partly it has great practical
value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

Wow, I wasn't aware that they'd actually set up a holiday for that.

I'll certainly keep a towel handy.

Towel Day? As more of a Pratchett (and more to the point, a Lady Sybil Ramkin-Vimes/His Monitorship Sam Vimes fan) I was already busy celebrating The Glorious Twenty-fifth of May and Young Sam's birthday.

I need to find a lilac sprig somewhere.

Truth! Justice! Freedom! Reasonably Priced Love! And a Hard-Boiled Egg!

I'm all for the hard-boiled egg.

And if by "reasonably priced love" you mean "reasonably cheap dating", I'm for that as well. I think I would rather bowl a few frames than go to a fancy restaurant.

I would have answered earlier, but I was up to being in Florida for a conference last week. It had everything I like in a work conference. There were meals and/or snacks about every hour on the hour, a half day free for going to the salt-water pool/hot tub, a trip to Epcot, a half day free for getting an hour-long massage from a man who could probably crack walnuts with two fingers (I had no choice, the woman I booked with got ill and had to go home. It was get massaged by a man or don't get massaged at all. Guess which I chose.) Oh, yeah, and some work stuff. Just enough that I don't feel guilty. Wouldn't want to get all crazy and actually work the whole time...

I'm up for a few frames. I warn you, though, it totally wreaks havoc on my nails. All the better if the bowling alley has good burgers. I'm not into the beer, so I love that my local establishment makes a darned fine burger and serves tater tots.

Do you prefer the curry or vanilla flavoured corner for nibbling?
