Towel Day: Tuesday, May 25

From an email reminder from Silver (in Seattle but not yet on LJ): For you Douglas Adams fans out there, a reminder that Towel Day is this coming Tuesday, May 25th. You know what to do. If you don't, go here:

Douglas Adams is most famous for his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Plan on carrying a towel all day and having a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster in the evening to celebrate Mr. Adams' memory!

Best,
Chris

Just in case you missed it, here it is:

He's a pro-Western Baghdadi who loves his country, so it's not America-bashing while still providing a clear analysis of how they feel about our occupation. His English is as good as most bloggers >g<

How does he feel about the occupation right now? Read the "Thursday, February 12, 2004" post, a response to an American GI email.

coolest storm ever!

Wow, what an amazing light show! After sequestering myself in the downstairs amid churning animals during the actual tornado watch, I saw the weather-dude exclaiming that it was the most lightning he'd ever seen during a storm. Of course, that meant I had to go outside and watch. Wow, continual (no, really) flashes, some circular lightning, flickers everywhere, little branching flashes -- and no rain, so I could watch and watch. Ended up bringing Hope up here to the top of the hill (KU campus) which has a great view of town to watch the storm. Then the second wave of serious thunderstorms hit, hiding the flashes.

But wow.
