Whatcha Doin?

 

The Doctor and I are celebrating Towel Day. Towel Day is a Geek holiday that celebrates The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author, Douglas Adams.  A towel is significant in the novel as it is used for shelter, warmth, or to lie on while at the beach. Adams’s strongest advice was “Never go anywhere without your towel.”

And as The Tenth Doctor observed, “There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.” 

Happy Towel Day!

Whatcha doin?

  2. I didn't know there was a day for towels. That book is such a classic I guess some geeks would definitely wear their towels today!
