Today (25th May) is Towel Day, celebrating the work of Douglas Adams, author of Hitchihiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

The site lists some activities around the world - but nothing for New Zealand...

Do you have your towel today?

Oh man!! How did I not know about this?!?
I might have to go out and buy a brand new towel just for this very special day.

So long, and thanks for all the fish, Douglas!
