25th May and it's towel day once again, time to remember our dear departed Douglas Adams. As ever I know where my towel is...
Douglas would have been 70 years old this year, a funny thought. I wonder what gems of wit this event would have occasioned from him? Though as he did once say, "Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so."
He also said, "There are some people you like immediately, some whom you think you might learn to like in the fullness of time, and some that you simply want to push away from you with a sharp stick.” Douglas, I like to believe, was one of the former.
Mind you he once also famously said, “Don't believe anything you read on the net. Except this. Well, including this, I suppose.” So who knows?
Anyway, most of all, as it says on the cover of The Book in large friendly letters, "Don't panic."
