Apparently, we here at Gabbing Geek missed some unofficial Geek Holidays.
Now, I am aware I was the humbug who spouted off against Star Wars Day. But I checked the blog this morning and there was nothing scheduled for 8, so here we are.
It seems that May 25th was a pair of unofficial Geek Holidays. One was “Towel Day” in honor of the late author Douglas Adams, who wrote the five book Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy. Those are fun. I’d recommend them…well, maybe not the end of the last one. Adams had depression and it shows. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
Then the really baffling one we missed was, and I kid you not here, Geek Pride Day. Missing this one around here is almost inexcusable. Almost. We don’t have to change our name or anything. The “Nattering Nerds” doesn’t have the right ring to it. But the 25th was Memorial Day here in the States and we were doing summer reruns or something. I blame Jimmy.
