Day 145: Happy Towel Day!

25 May

Hey friends! In case you don’t know what Towel Day is, it is celebrated every May 25 as a tribute to the late great author genius, Douglas Adams. He wrote one of my favorite books of all time: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s called Towel Day because in the Hitchhiker books, it is said that a towel,

“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 vapors; 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 mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); 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.”

If you read through all that, congratulations and I love you because you are a true friend hahaha.

In honor of Towel Day, I made this thing.

This is Arthur Dent, unwilling hitchhiker, clutching his towel and trying real hard not to panic.

Also, over at Tumblr, people are celebrating Towel Day by posting pictures of themselves with their towels. So here’s a bonus picture of yours truly with my towel. It is blue and soft and it smells nice.

😀

That’s all! Happy Towel Day and see you tomorrow!
