Hitchhiker’s Guide Birthday!


I turn 42 next week but celebrated my birthday this past weekend with a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy themed party. 😀 People came dressed in their PJs and bathrobes and most even brought their own towels. I had plenty on hand for those that forgot theirs. Because one can never be without a towel (mine came in handy to kill a vicious yellow jacket that got into the house). My brother-in-law made a giant container of Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters (taste like having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick), and apple cider (almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea). We even had Babel fish!! There were sparkly stars and dolphins hanging from the ceiling, a giant dolphin banner:

And of course there was Hitchhiker’s Guide movie props:

And what good is a TARDIS without a Doctor?

Thank goodness I got one of these! It could be dangerous traveling through time and space without one :D

    Happy Birthday! Looks like you had an awesome party! Plus gifts. I know for a fact that that cat book is really funny.

    How fun. Once,on a l-o-n-g trip, we listened to Hitchhiker’s in the car. I couldn’t wait to get back in and drive some more. Ha.
