Note: actually Towel Day is May 25th, aka yesterday. I wanted to upload this entry yesterday, but the bus WiFi decided to be shit1. I'm too lazy to change the text though, so treat every mention of "today" as if it says "yesterday".

If it were anything more serious, I might have reconsidered making a thread on this holiday in Celebrations, but yeah... Still, happy Towel Day everyone!

For those of you who haven't heard of it.. Towel Day is a tribute to Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy which happens to be my favorite book series. Not going to do a full book review here, but his writing style is amazing and if you're a fan of weird science fictional nonsense, I can absolutely recommend it to read. Not only that, but the very towels from this series have formed a major part of my inspiration of the craziness revolving fishing rods in Pokémon Choice Quest (and probably even the weirdness of that story in general).

So yeah... I just went with it and carried a towel2 over my shoulder for the whole day and somehow only one of my friends bothered to ask "Hey, is that a towel?"
Given the widespread 42 jokes on the internet (yes, that also comes forth from this series)... I can't possibly be the only one, right? Any of you joined the fun today?

Lycan out. And remember folks, one should always know where their towel is!
1: I could have seen that coming, it is over half of the time. I'm not even exaggerating, I tallied it for a while. I though it was doing better lately though, but nope...
2: After not using my towel for half a year or so the holes in it have magically grown in diameter from about 5 millimeters to 6 centimeters. The random acid or whatever got onto it has quite the nasty aftereffect, not sure whether my poor towel will make it to Towel Day next year. :(
