happy towel day, you hoopy froods

I wish I had more time to write about this, but alas, I have two assignments due over the next couple of days and I’ve barely had time to squeeze in a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster before breakfast!

towel day 2016

Today marks the 15th annual Towel Day, celebrating the life and works of Douglas Adams, most renowned for his foremost guide to inter-galactic hitch-hiking. I read and fell in love with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy when I was in high school. Over ten years later, the trilogy of five still holds a very dear place in my bookshelves. There’s something timeless, and – dare I say – universal, about Adams’ humour, warm and very aware of humanity’s foibles, that keeps it relevant and beloved by so many after all these years.

So, wherever you are in the galaxy, don’t panic, make sure you know where your towel is, and have a Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters or two (but never three, unless you are a thirty ton mega elephant with bronchial pneumonia) for the great Douglas Adams. So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Is anyone else celebrating Towel Day? If so, please share!
