flowers, for making me laugh when I was feeling a bit miz with chest ache. Reading The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul and chortling at Dirk Gently's antics

His writing is great...pity he went too soon.

His radio scripts were wonderful - it was much more fun to listen to those and make your own pictures than it was to see someone else's vision on TV.

My favourite Douglas Adams quote is: I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by.

I'm also a big fan of Marvin the Paranoid Android.

RIP Douglas Adams.
