Show Your Geek!

| Tuesday, May 25
Today is the celebration of two momentous holidays, and I hope that you will also partake. Let your true geek colors show!


First of all, today is  Towel Day. Yes, in honor of Douglas Adams, intergalactic hitchhikers, and Vogon poetry, please carry a towel with you, ponder the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything (hint: it's 42), enjoy some beer and peanuts for lunch, watch for falling whales and petunias, and most importantly, DON'T PANIC!


The second (and I only list it second because it's a newer holiday) way to celebrate today is Geek Pride Day. You should be proud to be a geek, no matter what kind of geek you are! Geeks are passionate. We truly love whatever it is that interests us. I for one am a sci-fi geek, a food science geek, a physics geek, a lit geek, a blog geek, a TV geek, a trivia geek, a board game geek, and the list goes on and on. Celebrate by wearing your geekiest tee! Spout random knowledge! Play your favorite games! Spend some time with an awesome book! My geekiest tee has yet to arrive. It will actually be at my doorstep this afternoon, what a perfect time to receive this:
 Also, from what I have read of this book, I think it is perfect reading for a geek holiday such as today:

Here's to Arthur, Zaphod, Trillian and the rest! Unleash your inner-geek!

Angela said...

Haha, terrible timing! :(

Our TV blew up, so no Xbox, Wii, etc., etc. AND our WoW subs aren't active.

Oh well, I still have my DSi! And the PC!

And a geeky shirt! ^_^

@Andie
Enjoy a guilt-free evening of WoW! It's your way to celebrate this auspicious occasion!

@Angela
Geek out in whatever way you can!

@Emily
I think you have the right idea. I'm catching up on Big Bang Theory tonight.

I've actually been considering a Hitchhiker's tattoo. It's my favorite book. I spent towel day eating flaming hot cheetos, which wasn't very geeky but it was definitely delicious,

Melissa said...

OH NO not only did I miss Geek Pride Day, I didn't even know it existed! This is horrible!

I guess it's okay, because I happen to do two really geeky things yesterday: I played Final Fantasy IX and I went to Barnes and Noble and read an entire graphic novel in the cafe.

I love the Schrodinger shirt. Love. It. Also, I read Geektastic and thought it was good-but-not-great. What did you think?

Hey Kara!

Congrats! You won my giveaway! Do you want me to send the giftcard to the email up at the top here or is there another email you'd prefer me to send it to? Lemme know and I'll plan on getting that to you tonight!

@Amber
That's an awesome idea. I've seen some good ideas for those over at GeekyTattoos.com.

@Melissa
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. :) Sounds like you accomplished good geeky things! I've not read all of the book, but I agree, good, but not great.

@Ray J
:squee: Yay! Thank you! You rock!
