She passed the time quietly in a world of her own in which she woz surrounded as far as the eye could see with old cabin trunks full of past memories in which she rummaged with a great curiosity, and sometimes bewilderment. Or, at least about a tenth of the cabin trunks were full of vivid, and often painful or uncomfortable memories of her past life; the other nine-tenths were full of penguims, which surprised her. Insofar as she recognised at all that she was dreaming, she realized that she must be exploring her own subconscious mind. She had heard it said that humans are supposed only to use about a tenth of their brains, and that no one was very clear what the other nine-tenths were for, but she had certainly never heard it suggested that they were used for storing penguins.

buy it :ibiggrin: read it :irofl: itz great fun hehe

nope, douglas adams is dead unfortunately. damn shame cos he would surely have written a fair few more books...

'long dark tea time of the soul' and 'dirk gentley's holistic detective agency' are the only other 2 novels he wrote apart from the 5 hitchhikers guide books (i think) and they're both damn funny!

man was a legend...
