May 25th is TOWELDAY
Towel Day 2011 | Geeks of Doom
May 25th is Towel Day!
On this great day, be sure to carry a towel around with you today in honor of the late great author Douglas Adams and his awesome book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
This international event is now celebrating its 11th anniversary with lots of stuff happening around the globe. Check out towelday.org to find out about Towel Day events. There’s also an event page on Facebook.
If you’re on Twitter, but sure to include the hashtag #towelday when tweeting about how you’re celebrating today — and include some pics too! You can also follow @towelday on Twitter.
Love the Hitchhiker books, and even the movie. Happy Towelday y'all.

Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again.
It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order, though."
"Space is not absolute, but depends on one's movement through space; time is not absolute, but depends on one's movement through time; and numbers are not absolute, but depend on one's movement through Italian restaurants."
"...what's that strange thing you British play?"
'Er, cricket? Self-loathing?'
"My dear chap! My dear chap! My dear, dear chap! What was I saying?"
'Er, you were saying "My dear chap" '
