Where Are You With Your Towel ?

Dear Diary:

It's that time of year again...May 25th...Towel Day!  Towel Day is in honour of Douglas Adams who wrote "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy".  In this book Adams introduces the towel with this explanation:

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker 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 miniraft 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 avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a min-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a brush, but very 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.

     -  Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers's Guide to the Galaxy

Every year I try to celebrate Towel Day in my second world, in a different place.  This year I chose a movie theatre where they were showing "Night of the Living Dead".  Too bad it wasn't Adams' movie of his famous book.

Good Night for now.
