How Did I Miss This

Oh my goodness, peoples of the internet, how on earth did I not find out until five minutes ago that it was Towel Day?

“Whoa whoa whoa, P.L.M., what the heck is Towel Day?”  Allow Wikipedia to explain:

Towel Day is celebrated every year on 25 May as a tribute to the author Douglas Adams by his fans. On this day, fans carry a towel with them, as described in Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, to demonstrate their appreciation for the books and the author. The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after Adams’ death on 11 May 2001.

All geeks and fans of Doulas Adams know how important it is to know where your towel is.  If you read this in time to do so, don’t forget to wear a towel to all public events.  And Happy Towel Day to you all.
