Today I am 42!

Today I am 42!  I'm excited.  Birthdays are fun, particularly since I realized two years ago that (with a little bit of effort) one can make a birthday celebration last the entire year.  The past two years have been wonderful, due largely to my 40 Things and Project 41 adventures.  I have high hopes that 42 will be just as great.

I've been thinking about how to celebrate 42 for quite some time.  I was a teenager when I read Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and learned that 42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.  I knew I wanted to tie into that somehow.

After a lot of thought, I've decided that I'm going to discover everything I can about 42.  If 42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, then it could be really fun to learn more about this (seemingly) ordinary number.  I've done some preliminary research and found all sorts of fun facts and lists about the number 42, as well as books, music and movies with 42 in the title.  I'll learn about the 42nd president and the 42nd state.  I'll try "42 foods that..." and I'll try to learn the domino game called "Texas 42."  I'm going to immerse myself in discovery and see where it takes me. 

I can't wait!
