I think my mom has my camera-to-computer cable, so I should have pictures up tomorrow. Nothing too thrilling here either, though. And it looks like we might not even get anyone else posting this year. But we'll see.

Towel Day Pictures / Re: Towel Day 2015

Ok, I finally have some pictures.  It turns out one of my kids had a camera (and no, I don't have a cell phone, why would I want to make it easy for other people to interrupt whatever I am doing?)



You might recognize the location from some previous years.  Nothing special this year, just home for BBQ, and for me a bit of writing (actually not a bad thing to be doing on Towel Day).  Unusually cold spring this year, so the robe was kind of nice to keep off the chill.

Happy Towel Day from Colorado (We are also celebrating Memorial Day in the USA)

I ended up falling asleep before midnight, so festivities are well under way all around the world.  I also realized this morning that the camera we usually use for our Towel Day pics is somewhere in Italy right now with my daughter (presumably sporting a towel in some touristy location).  Never fear, I do have my towel, which should impress some strag who will willingly loan me a camera.  Expect pictures sometime today.

Lots going on around the globe, contests, celebrations, etc... I hope everyone is having fun.

Happy Towel Day!

Towel Day has already arrived in several time zones.  Although it is still over 14 hours away for me, Towel Day is five hours old in some parts of the Pacific and has overtaken most of Australia.

What you can do:
-Carry a Towel with you at all times today (May 25th)
-Register at towelday.net and say hello
-Share your Towel Day pictures with us
-Throw yourself at the ground and try to miss (beginners should only try this from a low elevation, like maybe a few inches, until they get the hang of it)
-Above all, celebrate & enjoy

Are you still working for the parks department (or something like that)?

No change in plans here, probably just a backyard BBQ.  My brother opened a micro-brewery/tap room about six months ago and I would probably have no trouble convincing him to have a Towel Day themed event except that he is closed on Mondays (his only day off).  I think I know what I am doing for Towel Day next year...

Oh, and I should note that today is May 11th, Douglas Adams died 14 years ago today.

Despite the double holiday, I'll almost certainly have to work. So not really any plans other than that, but I'll have the towel along.

42 days until Towel Day!

Anyone have any interesting plans for this year?

Towel Day coincides with Memorial Day this year, so I may just end up with a backyard BBQ.  The local market probably won't have any Ameglian Major Cow, so we might have to make due with a non-consenting cow for our burgers.

AHEM! Yes. Uh. I'm still here too, more or less.

Yeah, I remember last Towel Day, people posted pictures on the day itself, and then the very next day, total flatline. Now, being a holiday-based forum, there's bound to be some of that, and even if there isn't much discussion during the rest of the year, it's still nice to have a place to post the pictures. It would be nicer if things busied up again, but I'm not sure what we can do. Perhaps hold a seance to get some new material from DNA?
