Oh boy. Oh no. Oh cool.  
I'm running a cute li'l contest on my blog for some Neil Gaiman books, nothing too serious, and he's just posted it on his blog. Very cool! Although if the current traffic patterns are any indication (700+ hits on a blog that normally sees between 40-50)
(whoops, while I walked away to answer a phone call - about ten minutes - it shot up to 850)
I'm gonna need a lot more prizes.
Good thing Kenny donated a few.

But I might need to go trolling bookstores for some deals!

But hey! Mention in Neil Gaiman's blog! Five seconds of internet fame! Yippee!

Hello, I've actually just wandered over from Gaiman's blog and if you need another prize, I can offer up a pair of porcupine quill earrings, which look rather like this, but without the little carved bears.

Those are so pretty! That's so kind of you to offer (and I'm so grateful! I went to sleep and woke up to 100 more entries...I gotta admit, I was not expecting that kind of turnout at all!) Did you make 'em?

What's your e-mail so I can bug you off-LJ?

I do make them, yes. I even collect my own quills from porcupines. (Hello from Northern Canada!) My mum does the full birchbark boxes, which take forever to put together, but the earrings are nice and easy to sort out.

For email, I'm takhys AT gmail DOT com.

Acknowledgment by Neil Gaiman of your existence is very very very cool...

It brings out the giggling fangirl in me.

Oh wow, Neil Gaiman gave you a shout out??? I'm jealous.

I'm very tempted to print it out and hang it on my wall. But then I'm worried that doing so would prove me crazy. Also, my printer has no color so it probably wouldn't look very cool. But man. Very cool.

i decided to post this to your private journal
i chose my name because at the time mercydelirium was taken so i had to change the spelling. its an ode to tori amos, neil gaiman and the sisters of mercy, who are probably my biggest influences. i think im one of the few people to like tori and neil independantly of each other:) im also a writer, a painter and an artist of sorts!
congrats on the mention in neils log! when i got my new copy of the lush magazine i squeed! literally, and as far as the song goes, i know that martin gore did a remake of it on counterfeit 2!!!! hehehe
so yeah, im a lushie as well:)
