Things that are sad

I just realized that on September 22nd, Neil Gaiman was IN CHICAGO!

Well, not exactly in Chicago ... he was in Naperville ... but that's a Chicago suburb ... and I could have gotten out to see him easily - if I had know. Why didn't I know? Because I hadn't been reading his blog! I usually read it religiously, but then I got married and took some time off of the internet (not on purpose - just no easy access) ... then I was moving, then it took me awhile to have regular access again ... and then I restarted reading all my favorite blogs, but just the recent entries ... and now I'm finally getting reading back entries in his brilliant blog ... and I'm kicking myself! NEIL GAIMAN! MY Neil Gaiman! Here ... in Chicago ... and I missed him.

Not that I want to add to your sadness, but my friend Kate was in the theatrical adaptation of Stardust over the summer... http://www.griffintheatre.com/stardust.html
And yes, it was great, and yes, audience members came dressed up as characters...
