Don't forget...It's Geek Pride Day!
Today is Geek Pride Day (aka" Towel Day").
May 25th was chosen as this sacred day many, many Endor moons ago as it is the release day of the very first and very best of the Star Wars movies.
It is also known as "Towel Day" in celebration of Douglas Adams, arguably the finest sci-fi author in the known galaxy.
His timeless advice of "Don't Panic." and insight into the meaning of the Universe (answer: 42) is a contribution to the globe worthy of it's own holiday. Or at least worthy of sharing a holiday with our benevolent ruler, Lord Lucas.
We here at SweetonGeeks.com will be celebrating by consuming chilled Aldorian Ale and trying to spot movie mistakes in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Jealous. You should be.
On St. Patty's Day everyone is a little Irish. On Geek Pride Day everyone is a little bit geek. We , the geek community, invite you to celebrate your geek spirit. Let me know what it smells like. Mine smells like stale farts, pizza pockets and that lovely smell a new Apple computer emits which will probably give me cancer in ten years.
