Happy Towel Day

Happy Towel Day everyone!
When I die, I hope that what people say about me is that I was a frood who really knew where his towel was.

Towel Day - Celebrating the life and work of Douglas Adams

I try to be a hoopy frood who really knows where his towel is.

As long as it's not one of those microfiber towels, I've got me covered.



snowy, I wonder if your link is for a microfiber towel...it didn't specifically say "microfiber".

I find microfiber towels to work great for drying my car, but I hate the way the feel while drying my body or the dishes.

I have my towel right here!

Not as fancy as Snowy's, but it's a largish green microfiber towel.

Out of curiosity, has anyone read And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer?

I'm curious, but I really don't know how I feel about someone else taking on Douglas Adams' characters.

Yes, I have read the book and thought he did an excellent job with the characters and their mannerisms/quirks. I was rather upset with how it ended and it didn't concentrate on Arthur as much, but other than that I would recommend giving it a read.

I'm a huge fan, but somehow the whole "froody" thing always annoyed me.

Anyone read "And Another Thing", the new 6th book of the trilogy?

I guess I'll give it a go then when the paperback comes out.
