25 May: Towel Day
There are few drawbacks to living ‘in the future’ (i.e. in a city which is 10 hrs in advance of GMT), but one of them is not realising until reading it on BoingBoing that today was (or, is, for some of you) Towel Day, in honour of the great, late Douglas Adams.
I always figured if there was a day in honour of Douglas Adams, it’d be a Thursday. Never could get the hang of Thursdays.
