May 11, 2011 Rejected Book Plot #41
Being a teenager in the late nineties was a crazy time. None more crazy than the summer of ’99 where a young girl went through a decidedly British phase. With the panic of Y2K looming she entered a new world of afternoon tea times and accents. She was so entranced by the Brits that even her inner monologue went British, chap.
From that summer on never did she leave the house without a towel. When she would be late from her lunch break and before her boss could yell at her she would tell him “time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so”. There was no problem Douglas Adams couldn’t fix. She even gave a toast at her best friend’s wedding that started with “We’ll be saying a big hello to all intelligent lifeforms everywhere and to everyone else out there, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys” needless to say that didn’t go over so great. She lived and breathed the guide.
Just in time for the 10th anniversary of Douglas Adams’ death, join Janet as she takes a journey back through the summer that changed her life forever.
“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
