What book is your party themed around?
I chose a classic of geeky literature, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
What food will you serve?
I’m not the best cook. I think we shall all just have a lovely meal at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe instead.
What’s your signature drink?
Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster, of course! There are many people who have tried to recreate this signature cocktail… but somehow I doubt it matches the original.
“The Guide even tells you how you can mix one yourself. “Take the juice from one bottle of the Ol’ Janx Spirit, it says. “Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V– Oh, that Santraginean seawater, it says. Oh, those Santraginean fish! “Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzine is lost). “Allow four liters of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it, in memory of all those happy hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia. “Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odors of the dark Qualactin Zones, subtle, sweet and mystic. “Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink. “Sprinkle Zamphuor. “Add an olive. “Drink…but… very carefully…”
What games will you play?
Poetry Slam. All entries are guaranteed to be better than Vogon Poems.
“Vogon poetry is of course the third worst in the Universe.”
If we get bored of that, we can always try Brockian Ultra Cricket.
What party favors will you send home with your guests?
Every guest will receive a towel. It is the most useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.
You know a party of this style is highly improbable, right? 😉
