Very Important Information

But, yes, the date has changed to yet another date that it will never be again! April the first is a very foolish day, but it is not yet Cheese Weasel Day. 

Just now, I'm listening to the recording of the live broadcast of The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Universe on BBC Radio, and have just reached the portion that takes place at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, where Zaphod Beeblebrox has just ordered a Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster. Yeah, that sounds like a really dreary hangover waiting to happen, despite their trying to time-travel out of it!

I saw somebody dressed up as a Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster one time. She won the competition.

Trying to search for photos of the competition haven't gone anywhere, so if you have any links, please share? Thanks! :-D

I'd be glad to but I don't have any. Here's a pen portrait from my memory. Katie is a tall, slim lady who wore something tight and dark - trousers or minidress - to make her body into the stem of a cocktail glass. From her shoulders the carboard costume flared broadly. I think there was crumpled tissue paper. The part I remember clearly is the little cocktail umbrella next to her face.

PS you could try 'Rogue Morris' as a search term. The fancy-dress party was hosted by another Morris team, I forget which one, but Katie and I were there with Rogue. I dressed up as the animal that wants to be eaten, with joints of meat marked out on my clothing.

When I get chance I'll ask another ex-Rogue whether she has photos.

Weeks later... I asked, but the fellow ex-Rogue hasn't responded. Looks like no photo.
