Douglas, you will be missed with all of my heart. There are so many ways that your quirky sense of humor and views of the world shaped me into the person I am today.

I started reading the Hitchhiker's series when I was 8. Do you know how twisted of an individual I have become because I was handed that paperback book from my father that early in life? I'll never see anything as a normal human being again. I love it. Douglas Adams did it to me, but it's something I would never want removed from my personality.

It's so hard to express how my insides twisted and knotted when I read the news on the computer screen this morning, half-awake. I didn't think it was real, so I kept re-reading the headline. It doesn't make any sense.

After playing Starship Titanic, I want a fishing rod. That is my only goal in life - - To build a giant spaceship in which all of the robots go crazy, to have my fellow employees stab me in the back, and then just realize all I want is a fishing rod. Thanks Douglas!

He made me the quirky me that I am. I wish I could just tell him that. I wish I could have gotten the chance to shake his hand and explain to him how he's twisted my sense of the world for the better. Geez. Time to re-read his books, tonight.
