This is me being a fanboy.
Okay, I'm not, really. Really! It's just that I'm about to *hang out* with Neil Gaiman later, and I realize I haven't read much of his work, at least, not compared to all the other real fans out there. I went through American Gods last year, but that's the net of it. I don't want to be a boor; I at least want to catch the references to what the fans will be talking about.
So this is me, cramming.
On a related note, I had a harried female executive for a seatmate on the plane coming here. Annoying, too: up until take-off time, she was on her laptop running through MS Project and uploading via her SmartBro dongle. Anyhow, she wore a t-shirt and on the front was emblazoned with the word:
Now I have to hope that's a good omen.
