    I wore my towel at work with pride today. Got some funny looks.
    I was dissapointed not (but didnt expect to see) any fellow towel wearers. I was even more dissapointed when no-ones curiosity got the better of them and asked why the hell i had a brightly coloured towel draped around my neck.

    ah well, i bite my (electronic) thumb to them

    i thought the best version of hitchikers guide was on radio 4 - the tv version was ok - but i like radio leaves more to imagine

    the books are fantastic also. the great thing about hitch hikers guide is that douglas had a hand in all the incarnations (he even appeared in the film as the warning message on magrathea) and changed it all around so that you get somthing new every time.

    Ive just had my first ever absinthe. my stomach is doing somersaults and my brain is doing a jig

    "the enciclopedia galactica mentions alcahol. It says that it is a olourless, volatile liquid and also calls note to its affect on certain carbon based life-forms

    the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy also mentions alcahol. it says that the best drink in existance in the Pan Galactic Gargleblaster the effect of which is like having your brain smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick. the guide also tells you on which planets the best pan galactic gargleblasters are mixed, how much you can expect to pay for one and which volintary organisations exist to help you rehabilitate"

    Absinthe put me in mind of this topical quote (and yes i was sad enough to commit it all to memory"

    i'm on tramps cider - well hereford - not anything stupid like frosty jack - but its still pretty bad for your general well being - dunno why i keep buying it really.might still go to the pub but my mates is coming to visit from cardiff so i'm trying to put a load of music cassettes for when we go camping.I reckon its time to invest in a good mp3 player and some loud portable speakers.The only good thing about those crap old cassette decks is that when they melt by a campfire they still keep on playing
