The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman


Neil Gaiman was on The Colbert Report last night talking about The Graveyard Book. You can watch the interview at this link. (1)

St. Patrick's Day:

We all celebrate St. Patrick's Day in our own way. In honor of this day, I've donated money to a group that rescues abandoned and abused pet snakes; it's my own little joke. (2)

I also use this time to catch up on my Celtic history. Right now I'm reading
The Philosopher and the Druids and We Are But Women

Enjoy the show,

Neil Gaiman is also on Twitter (sigh) and yes, I do follow him there. I'm developing a love/hate relationship with this Twitter thing-y.

Endnotes:

(1) On a sadder note: Condolences to Mr. Gaiman on the recent loss of his father.

(2) Does anyone else remember the inter-faith Return of the Snakes Parade in Berkeley? I don't think they hold it anymore, but it was fun while it lasted.

I am so000 going to sit our twitter. Being on twiter is a sign for me that the person is, in fact, a dufus.

Who was it said that 90% of anything is crap had it right about Twitter.

On the other hand, I'm seeing people use it to organize and do fundraising. There's that 10% that might be worth noting.

But I still hate it. Mostly.
