In memory of the late and undeniably great Douglas Adams, May 25 has been celebrated as Towel Day since he died.

If you are not familiar with Douglas Adams and do not recognize the significance of Towel Day, you have my sympathy. The man was a satirical genius. Read his books. Listen to / watch the BBC adaptations of his works. Sneer in disgust at that pathetic American made Hitchhikers's movie. Drink a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.

And most importantly, make sure you know where your towel is.

I see "Towel Day" and I immediately have flashbacks to the multiple Wood/Prior rehab sessions. ***shiver***

Terrible, terrible movie. At least it had Martin Freeman.

Which is doubly sad, because the BBC-TV series was so good.

In a low-ish budget British humor sort of way.

I can't believe I have never seen the British TV series. Big fan of Adams, read all his books, saw the sucky movie. Must look for TV series.
Please don't feed the psychos.
