May 25, 2014: Could there be a day that’s more up my alley? Let’s start with Towel Day, honoring the late, great author Douglas Adams. I like to consider myself a hoopy frood who always knows where her towel is, thank you very much. It’s also National Wine Day (not to be confused with National Drink Wine Day, which was February 18th) (my Facebook “like” was number 9,000 for that page, which makes Numberwang). So grab a bottle of whatever you like, and enjoy it in whatever way you like best.
Finally, today is the combo of Nerd Pride Day and Geek Pride Day, a day to step out of the shadows and let people know that you’re a nerd or a geek, and you’re not afraid to show it. The day was chosen because it’s the day back in 1977 when Star Wars first came out. (Although if you want, we can have a long conversation about whether Star Wars or Star Trek is the superior property.) (Hint: I think it’s Trek.) (But that’s just one geek’s opinion.) (And yes, I consider myself a geek rather than a nerd.) (Although I will accept it if you want to call me a “parentheses nerd”, especially considering this commentary.)
