Today is doubly dorky. First it’s the 40th Anniversary of the release of Star Wars. Forty years of a fandom that has brought us Wookiee calls and internet memes. I have discussed my love of this space fantasy on numerous occasions. I don’t think I need to add any more on the subject at this time. Except that either you love Star Wars or you’re wrong.
Today is also known as “Towel Day”. Which is a bit more obscure compared to Star Wars. However the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is known by most people in my circle of friends. I wrote about it last year and explained it’s significance in my life. Douglas Adams was a brilliantly funny man in his musings. Perhaps he will inspire me to write more than a mere blog post.
So today I am unsure which to celebrate more. My love of Star Wars or the series of novels that inspired my oldest daughter’s name? I think I shall combine the two and wear a Star Wars shirt and carry around my towel.
