Title: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Grate Oracle Lewot on December 18, 2009, 09:50:39 PM
Not much going on here anymore, but if anyone's there, I'll offer a Merry Christmas, or whichever holiday you prefer. :)

I'll take some Merry Christmas or whatever kind of holiday cheer you are handing out.  :D

I was out of town for a while, hence the unwashed spam postings that lingered on the site.  I'll go clean that up now.  

Yea, towel day discussion is a bit slow at the moment.  I still haven't had time to learn how write the code for some of the improvements I would like in place here before spring.  And I still have to contact related places to establish links.  I guess that is what New Year's resolutions are for.

Well, we know what DNA wrote about New Year's Resolutions (if we've read the Salmon of Doubt, that is), but good luck anyway. It's Christmas Eve Day where I live, so I can officially say Merry Christmas now. So Merry Christmas. ;)

Merry Christmas!

Which reminds me... I still don't own a copy of The Utterly, Utterly Merry Comic Relief Christmas Book.  Does anyone have this, and would they recommend it?

Happy New Year!

And on a towel related note...  Before the "do or die" football game tonight, the NY Jets gave out 75,000 towels to people attending the game.  Being a Jets fan, I took this as a good omen.  The Jets went on to win 37-0 and qualified for the playoffs!

You guys know that 37 is the number that shows up in the books much more often than 42 does, right? Considering that it's 42-5, it seems somehow significant. But maybe it's just me.
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Kilman on January 08, 2010, 03:56:38 PM
Um...
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Grate Oracle Lewot on January 11, 2010, 02:39:55 AM
Sorry. I'm not much of a sports person, so it was the only thing that came to mind. It's true, though--for example, Marvin was thirty-seven times older than the universe when he died. That's the only one I can readily remember, but there are a whole lot of them throughout the books. I don't remember if it was also true of the radio show.
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Kilman on January 16, 2010, 06:06:09 PM
I didn't realize 37 appears more frequently in the books.  Maybe I read it somewhere and forgot.  Next time you mention it, I will have forgotten it again and be similarly confused.  So it was a double omen.  But I am still confused about the significance of -5 (other than it being the difference between 42 and 37).
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Grate Oracle Lewot on January 16, 2010, 11:18:41 PM
I guess just because humans have 5 fingers on each hand and stuff. 5 is half of 10 and we count in base 10, because we have 10 fingers total. I dunno. My "brain" "works" in strange "ways."

But the 37 thing is true, although I don't think it was intentional. I think at different points he was trying to think of a number besides 42, and for whatever reason, he kept thinking of 37, although he does use 38 once.
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Kilman on January 25, 2010, 09:08:31 PM
Well, the good mojo from the towels ran out eventually.  Fans who traveled to the away games must have forgotten their towels.  There is always next year (unless Vogons come to make way for a bypass).  Interestingly enough, next season is the 42nd anniversary of the Jets first (and only) Superbowl win (the famous one with Joe Namath).  I will have to send a message to someone in the organization and suggest they give out towels with 42 on them.

Cinco de Mayo was two days ago, and Mother's Day is in another two days. I think both of these only apply to the U.S. (it turns out Cinco de Mayo isn't actually all that popular in Mexico itself).

Happy belated Thanksgiving!

I was out of town and internet access was limited to dial up over a noisy phone line on an antique computer.  I think it was receiving data at around 1000 baud.

Not technically a holiday, but Teatime is a Frood!

November was a disaster as far a writing was concerned (a black hole that sucked in time rather than light).  So no NaNoWriMo for me.  Did you make 50,000?

You are right! Happy St. Nick day!
This morning my 9 yr olds found candy canes and fake snow in their shoes, which they had left at the door last night.  :D
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Kilman on December 07, 2010, 06:34:37 AM
I think a grumpy father (severe beating of his team on Monday night football  :'( ) resulted in postponement of the traditional St. Nick cookie festivities, though I won't take the blame since they postponed it of their own initiative without asking me.  Well, as Clarice said, "There's always tomorrow..."
Title: Re: Happy Holidays?
Post by: Teatime on December 07, 2010, 04:25:32 PM
Oh well, we celebrated St. Nicholas feast day a day late one year because I forgot. Fortunately the kids were too young to notice at that time.  ;)

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving (still got a couple minutes left in my time zone).  As is becoming a holiday tradition, something broke.  Last Christmas it was sewer backup.  One year the fence blew down.  One time on a Thanksgiving trip we got stranded in a snowstorm in the middle of nowhere Kansas...  Today the refrigerator stopped working.  Oh well, still plenty to be thankful for.

Happy New Years Eve! :D
Actually, I'd guess that a year passing in one way or another would probably be the most recognizable holiday around the world. People may disagree on when the number rolls over and whether or not you should get time off of work, but I think everybody recognizes the general idea.

Anyway, 2012 is here. I guess we'd better brush up on our hitchhiking techniques before that apocalypse hits. Anybody want to bet the Mayans were talking about a scheduled Vogon appointment? I'd be willing to believe it would take that many years for them to get through the paperwork.

Happy New Year!

Hmm, the Mayans knew about the Vogons. You may be onto something there, Lewot.  :D

And yes, I think New Year's Eve is a holiday. At least, it always feels like one.  ;D

I can't believe no one said happy Easter! :o  Well then, happy Easter! ;D  I was playing "Jesus Christ is risen today" all day yesterday on my Ocarina. ^_^  And it'll be Easter for another 6 days! :D  Sadly this year I didn't color any 42 eggs, oh well.  And no one told me that mom and dad would be hunting eggs so I didn't hide any. :(  There's always next year though...

I was just thinking--as in, moments ago--of posting a Happy Easter post too but worried it was too late. I'm so glad you did. Happy Easter!    

You play Ocarina? You're just about the coolest ever!  8)

This Friday I will turn 42. So, there is (or will be) our big 42 of the week.  ;D

Happy Birthday, Teatime!!!

42

Not to put a cloud over the festivities, but I'm afraid that I did not discover the meaning of life, the universe and everything when I was 42.  I just got older.

(upon review, edited to make the 42 gold)

Thanks, Kilman.  :D

Darn, I was hoping this would be my year of wisdom.
One of the kids made me a card that says, "Happy Birthday, Mommy! You are now the answer to life, the universe, and everything!"  LOL

Sorry for the lateness, but happy birthday! :D  My firend's momo turned 42 last year and I put "Happy birthday!  You are now the answer to the ultimate question of life, the univerese and everything!"  She didn't know what that meant. :P

Post by: Teatime on April 13, 2012, 11:47:08 PM
Kilman, I love the gold 42.
Vogon Girl, that's so funny!

Had a super time at my sister's. She and her kids dressed up their house like Milliways and hung "42" and stars and "Don't Panic" signs all over. My niece decorated the cupcakes with little 42's. It was very cool! 8)

LOL  I love it!  I want a pair of those for my cats.  One of my girls invented a mythical creature called a catacorn, which is exactly that, a cat with a horn.

Happy Halloween!

 :) I know I'm probably too old by my parent's standards, but I'm going to get my free candy. :3  And at least I made my costume, I didn't buy it.  So actually they should be giving me twice as much for making mine from scratch. ::)

And one other thing. They called off the end of the world. The Vogons decided to put the new hyper space bypass someplace else.  ;)

It would seem that way. Vogons aren't too bright, but they're punctual. They wouldn't be late.

We got our ashes! 
We were weeding the garden out front when the mail lady came by. It wasn't until after we said "hi" and she walked away that I wondered if she thought we just had dirt on our heads. LOL :)

Merry Christmas guys! =D  I went to the midnight Latin mass this morning, it was pretty cool with all the chanting, but I was so tired I fell sleep twice; once before mass, and once during Fr.'s homily (although that priest shouts a lot during his homilies, so I was able to stay awake until the very end of it!)

Post by: Teatime on December 25, 2013, 09:56:09 PM
Latin Mass!   :) That's wonderful, Vogon Girl.  We went to 7am sunrise Mass.  It was so lovely.  :)  Someday when my twins are older we'll start going to midnight Mass. They get too tired at night. They're morning girls.

Santa's up after midnight, so...

Merry Christmas!

actually, I could have probably waited until close to dawn because Santa's probably not going to get much sleep tonight.
