I've been caught, so might as well admit it....I have a crush on Neil Gaiman. I have a picture of him at work, but thought I was safe because no one knew who he was. Busted! But what's not to like? He's got that adorable British accent! And I'm a sucker for a British accent (so you can imagine how much fun I had the first time in London. I seem to remember a lot of drooling)! *L*
Neil is also an immensely talented writer. Have loved every single one of his books, but Neverwhere is one of my all-time favorites. One of the few books that I've reread more than once.
Plus, it doesn't hurt that he's cute. Most people have a "type" and Neil happens to fit mine. Love the dark, messy hair. He's tall. Looks good in stubble. *sigh* And the big one - he has a brain and a sense of humor! You'd be surprised how rare that is nowadays.
You know what? I think the below picture really cinched my crush....how could I not fall for this guy??? Honestly....look at the sheer size of his......library! ;)
