Neil Gaiman's Exciting News!

So, as some of you have probably seen and some of you have probably not seen,

Neil Gaiman's Getting Married!!!!

Neil Gaiman is my absolute FAVORITE author of all time (I'll actually theoretically be hosting a Neil Gaiman week some time in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that), so I am very excited for him! I'm also hoping this will motivate him to write another adult novel in the near future. I feel like it's been a while. The last was Anansi Boys, if I am not mistaken, and that was over 4 years ago.

Now, if, unlike me, you don't follow his life closely, you might be wondering to whom he is getting married. Well, to Amanda Palmer, of course. Some of you might know her as from the Dresden Dolls. Some of you might know her from this:

They officially announced the news to the world today in Neil Gaiman's blog. Check it out here!!

Anyhow, I'm very excited for them, and if you're excited for them, too, you can wish them both congratulations via twitter: @neilhimself and @amandapalmer

Exciting news! And LOL...I had never heard that song or seen the video...too funny! She is very attractive. He's a lucky guy and she's a lucky girl for that matter!

Ooh! Just wanted to let you know that you forgot a tiny important detail when you entered our contest. And I didn't want you to regret it because you've already done a lot of entries!
Anyway, you forgot to make up a dino name, which is actually required for one to enter the contest. So maybe you should go back and insert the dinosaur name you thought for yourself. That's all! Thank you for spreading word about the contest :)

Here is the link.
