Today I received this awesome birthday gift from some nerd I know who makes amazing things with cloth and yarn and floss and such.
It is my new favorite thing, and I’ve already placed it on one of the shelves that hold my Douglas Adams and Neil Gaiman and P.G. Wodehouse books.
Thanks, stitchwad. You rock.

The relevant quote from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy goes like this:
"But Mr Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine months."
"Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything."
"But the plans were on display …"
"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."
"That’s the display department."
"With a flashlight."
"Ah, well the lights had probably gone."
"So had the stairs."
"But look, you found the notice didn’t you?"
"Yes," said Arthur, "yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’.”
