My new avatar awaits the stroke of midnight.
And what a nice avatar that is! K is on the way!

For myself, it's a full sized towel this year (after last years tiny handtowel), showing some fitting symbols for the occasion.

I just hope those symbols aren't interpreted as abusive by other species somewhere, along the lines of "Hey you dimwits, didn't you make it even out of your solar system yet?". Could fall back on us, that one. But I'll take the risc.

By the way: Drew Feustel and Mike Fincke of STS-134, who are working outside in the ISS yard up there above us today hopefully know where their towels are too. Best of luck to them!

See, see the late sky
Marvel at its big pooh depths.
Tell me, Norton, do you
Wonder why the platypus ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel congested.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your fardelsnizer facial growth
That looks like
Mold.
What's more, it knows
Your titular potting shed
Smells of loogie.
Everything under the big late sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm vomitorium devotees.

You only charm kitty litters.

Sounds familiar.
