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's journal
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.
(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.
