Intergalactic Towel Day 2011

.Towel Day is when we all remember the life and works of that hoopy frood Douglas Adams, and for one day make sure that we, like all good intergalactic hitchhikers, Know Where Our Towels Are.

And lo, those of use who were mad enough in IT Services and the University of Surrey, did observe Towel Day most seriously. (Not)

Towel Day 2011 - We merry few.

And even Mr Turing joined in:

And why yes, we did have an audience while we took these.

Freak accordingly.

How to have an excellent morning:

  1. For that essential preparation, be somehow still awake at 4:30am and try to wake at 6.
  2. Due to (1), get to the train station in a hurry - and late.
  3. For extra colour, add in a mix of 'your train then being ridiculously delayed by a suspicious package/bomb alert', so, having rushed like hell, you're stood waiting.  And waiting. And waiting.
  4. As a dessert, once you realise you are going to be stood waiting for a while, attempt to phone work to let them know, but then realise that you left your phone at home when you dashed out in a hurry.

After this, serve with a 'headache au-gratin' for added fun.

Unfortunately, where the Internet - and especially social media - is concerned, I think he's probably correct.
"This big enough for ya?"
"Truly, you have an impressive and capacious weapon, corrupt Judge Stewart."
