A blogger in New Zealand, among the first people who get to celebrate towel day, but unfortunately he has to celebrate alone.

Towel Day is already a hot topic across the internet as we approach Towel Day 2013.  It would be nearly impossible (perhaps only improbable) to keep up with all related postings.  I will only post a few of the more interesting ones as I come across them:

Towel Day has been noticed by the Oxford Dictionary, at least in its relation to geeks.  (Even though being a geek has been fashionable for some time now, I'm still not sure if I should be offended by being called a geek - It was a less than endearing term when I was growing up):

I've been pretty much gargle blasted for most of the day but did not want to forget to link some of the best towel day posts on the web:

A little more on those posts now that I don't have to focus so hard just to write one sentence.  The zeldadungeon piece postulates the theory that Dr. Who (in all his incarnations) celebrates Towel Day, a rather sensible idea.  And Lewot's Towel Day looks like it was a fun time outdoors.  I didn't get out much yesterday, never got beyond the yard, I think.  I really can't be sure where I was the whole time and might have popped off to somewhere else in the galaxy and completely forgotten about it.
