“O Deep Thought computer,” he said, “the task we have designed you to perform is this. We want you to tell us….” he paused, “The Answer.”
“The Answer?” said Deep Thought. “The Answer to what?”
“Life!” urged Fook.
“The Universe!” said Lunkwill.
“Everything!” they said in chorus.
Deep Thought paused for a moment’s reflection.
“Tricky,” he said finally.
“But can you do it?”
Again, a significant pause.
“Yes,” said Deep Thought, “I can do it.”
“There is an answer?” said Fook with breathless excitement.
“Yes,” said Deep Thought. “Life, the Universe, and Everything. There is an answer. But, I’ll have to think about it.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
I started this blog in January 2019. I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that happen to me. At the time I was living in South Africa and looking to make some changes in my life. That is why I included a “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Element” but changed to “Guide to the Universe”. I am not an expert on this story but I was looking for some new adventures and figured this would be a nice way to keep my story lighthearted and funny.
Even I could not have predicted how much would have changed in the last year given that I got the chance to move the UAE and I am now living in the UK. With plenty of need to stay positive after being made redundant and now coping with a coronavirus lockdown.
So this is my attempt to share some of the more positive aspects of my experiance.
Somewhere along the way I am hoping to find good chocolate cake and well…the Answer to Everything
