May 25th...Do YOU know what day it is?

 Honestly, I didn't know that it was anything but a Friday in May until I read the top world-wide trends on Twitter. First it was Happy Towel Day. Okay, so I was confused for a second. But then I saw "Don't Panic" and then "Douglas Adams" and I was all like, "IT'S THE HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY!" 
  So, HAPPY TOWEL DAY! I decided to do a post on it because I did in fact read the first book. And I am almost done with the second. (I have been busy and lazy so I haven't been reading much.) But here is what I have to say about it.

Taken from The Guide itself, THGTTG, chapter 3, page 27-28.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an intersteller hitchhiker 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 vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoom; is it to sail a minidraft 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 avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you-daft as a brush, but very 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.
I really really hope that I got everything in that paragraph right. If there is a typo, it wasn't meant to be there. It's really hard to type, read, and make sure things are spelled right.;

 Anyway, last night I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, for the first time. It was AWESOME!!! No more than that...okay, maybe EPIC!!! Yeah. That word does it justice.

 Well, I have a dsday to start. Woke up feeling pretty cruddy. It may be allergies...I wasn't aware that I had any....
