Ok, so I'm a day late. Are you familiar with Towel Day? Or the man who inspired it?

Any thoughts or fave quotes from Douglas Adams?


 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

That is very cool, I just heard about Towel Day last year.

People almost never het any Guide references. I thought the movie would help that but alas, it didn't.

Hope you feel better fast!

I rarely met people who have ever even heard of it. Shame too, it's just so good.

I think he might have been inspired by Douglas Adams but it's just a hunch.

A wonderful trilogy of 5 books and one movie, called The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy refer to towels being essential to interstellar hitchhiking. They are easy reading and a ton of fun.

I have many favorite Hitchhiker's Guide quotes but the two that come to mind at the moment are

"Time is an illlusion.  Lunctime doubly so".

and

"Drink up.  The world's about to end".
