    Love The Cow...... And Marvin

    Recently started retreading these books, checked into the process of how Douglas Aadams wrote the books. Very interesting how many versions there are. I especially like the cow at the Restaraunt at the End of The Universe. This book taught me never to take myself or my own...

    There is a theory which states that

    if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    My Love For The Hitchhikers Guide

    I was first introduced to the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy watching the tv series. It was played on our local PBS station right after Dr. Who. I still have VCR's of the show but I am not sure 30 year old VCR's still play. Although I love all of the characters in each...

    Illegal Listening

    In the 80's when at boarding school - lights out at 8 - I used to listen to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on the radio - brilliant, laughed out loud a lot - nearly got caught listening. Even now I can recite many of the lines. I love it.

    Who Else Loves Ford Prefect?

    A man who  mistakenly names himself after a car and sticks with it even after he finds out  he's wrong deserves a fan like me. I think i identify with him more than anyone else, then arthur, then trillian in that order. I just love this series, it's a pan galactic gargle...

    space.....Space, it says....is big....Really big..... You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is...I mean..... You may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist....But that's just peanuts compared to space............Listen..... And so on...

    My Favourite

    I first heard about it when I saw the movie, but after I read the book, I obviously loved it more (the movie changed the plot! wtf? -_-). Douglas Adams was a genius. He's in my list of people I would love to meet dead or alive (May he rest in peace).

    I have always been amazed at how Douglas Adams

    Curiously enough, the only thing

    that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. One thing that always makes me laugh.
