carry your towel with you throughout the day to show your participation and mourning

Towel Day :: A tribute to Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have. Partly it has great practical value – you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you – daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have „lost“. What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

32 grad heute?

wollt ihr mich umbringen oder was?

ich bin ein herbst- und frühlingsmensch, was ich mir mit global warming vermutlich eh einrexen kann.

ich hab das mal ausgetestet: 19 ° c sind meine optimale betriebstemperatur, da gibts auch noch genug kühlen schatten, in den ich mich verzupfen kann. ja ich weiß, schatten ist nicht temperaturabhängig. aber ich frag mich, wie ich juli/august überleben soll.

sonne, bitte mach mal halblang!

ich könnte mir eine wanne mit meiner 50+ sonnencreme füllen und darin schlafen … 50+ sonnenschutzfaktor, nicht pensionistensonnencreme …
