Geeky Friday – the towel edition

Last week a dear friend celebrated her 42nd birthday, so on Saturday we gave her a surprise towel party, for which none of us panicked because we all knew where our towel was at.


I myself combined my own birthday party outfit from last year (which was a gift from myself to myself as per yearly tradition) with a hot pink head towel similar to the one my housemate is wearing;. Unfortunately (or not) there’s no picture proof of that since nobody else took pictures…

Since it was International Gin Day, we kinda had an additional cocktail party theme going on too, hence the bow tie on the afore mentioned housemate and the tiki cocktail inspired outfit on the other housemate (who luckily doesn’t always go to parties like this).


If none of the above makes any sense to you, you probably haven’t read Douglas Adams’ ” The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” (or seen the movie adaptation) and don’t know that 42 is The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything.

In order to keep with the towel party theme, I decided to let this little towel kitty help me hand over our birthday gift (a voucher for an amazing absinthe and cocktail bar in Ghent).


Instructions on how to make this particular piece of towel origami can be found here.

Have you ever held a towel party or tried your hand at towel origami? And have you read (or seen) “The Hitchhiker’s Guide”?
