Let Neil Gaiman win.

I'm heading to bed any moment, and so I was mostly just skimming my friends list, and I happened upon this post to Neil Gaiman's blog. I didn't actually read any of the text (maybe I will when I'm more awake), but I skipped down to the photo, which showed an apparently naked Gaiman and wife, largely covered by a sheet, and my eyes went wide. Who knew that Neil Gaiman was a wookie? Holy mackerel!

The photo is made even more disturbing by the fact that Amanda Palmer (the wife) is staring blankly like a corpse while Gaiman cuddles her happily with his eyes closed.

Plus, did I mention the hairiness? Whoa! There's nothing wrong with it, of course, but it's just unusual. Unexpected. Startling.

Yeah, people probably feel that way when they see my unshaven legs.
