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.

It's A BBQ Day

Dear Diary:

It's a beautiful day out today, with an expected temperature of 24C; it's a lazy day with not a lot of things to finish; AND it's a holiday!!  What more could you ask for?  It's Victoria Day here in Canada so we all can have a celebration.  For my family and I, it will be a BBQ with lots to eat, and later tonight we'll set off some fireworks.

I'll be standing over a hot BBQ for a long time but it's worth every minute.  Everyone will fill their bellies with food and drinks and then sit back in the dark to watch the fireworks display.

Have a fun filled Victoria Day...tomorrow it will be back to the old grind!!

Good Night for now.

A Themed Wedding For The Spring

Dear Diary:

A lot of couples like to have a themed wedding so when I took a run out to The Trunk Show, I decided to look for that type of dress.  I found a lovely one.

The simplicity of the gown signifies the medieval look.  The brocaded skirt is done very well with hints of sparkly threads throughout.   

In medieval times, the bride's dress was usually a jewel colour but I chose white.  The medieval bride usually had an arranged marriage that was forced out of necessity, not love.  She didn't carry a bouquet, although petals would be scattered on the floor and flowers placed around the chapel.  A wedding cake was also not available.  The couple and guests ate a basic wheat bread to celebrate.

Good Night for now.
