Revenge of the Geeks.

I'm going to take a break from the family jewels and instead of showing off my rings, I'm going to showcase my Towels! As any good Hitchhikers fan knows, today is Towel Day and I gave a brief description of it last last year when I showed off my Star Wars towels.



It also happens to be GPDand The Glorious May 25th in honour of Discworld but I've never read Prachett's works (I know, blasphemy.) If you click that link above, you'll learn all about:

Your Geekly Rights

The right to associate with other nerds.
The right to have few friends (or none at all).
The right to not leave your house.
The right to not like football or any other sport.
The right to be out of style.
The right to be overweight and nearsighted.
(With great power comes great) Responsibilities
Try to be nerdier than anyone else.
If there is a discussion about something geeky, you must give your opinion.
Don't be a generalised geek. You must specialise in something.
Attend every nerdy movie on opening night and buy every geeky book before anyone else.
Wait in line on every opening night. If you can go in costume or at least with a related T-shirt, all the better.



But enough about Geeks (remember when they used to be known as the carnival freaks who'd bite the heads off chickens and snakes?) and let's cotton to the Towels. I've also included facecloths and mini-towelettes and except for the very last one, I haven't included handkerchiefs. See how many characters you can name!
Note: I photographed all but Bleach on top of my washer and I didn't bother to Photoshop any of them so you can see their relative sizes. I've also included a few sports/beer towels because they're cool, not geeky.




Happy Towel & Geek Pride Day everyone!!

Cool towel collection....where DO you keep all this amazing loot!!?? :)

(BTW - between you and me...Douglas Adams wrote Hitchhikers)

That does not excuse the fact that you have not read Pratchett....go out and find one of his books now. You can thank me later :D

Cheers!
