    I read that as Laura Palmer and did a double take.

    I’m happy for them but my dreams of marrying Amanda Palmer have been crushed. My only consolation is imagining how awesome a little Palmer/Gaiman kid would be.

    I swear I’m completely straight, but I’m still a bit sad that Neil Gaiman is off the market.

    Also, since it’s Amanda Fucking Palmer that he’s engaged to, I’m no longer sure who to be more jealous of.

    Congrats to both of you, from the bottom of my black soul :-)

    They look good together, and somehow… familiar.

    They’ve been officially dating since a few months. Congrats ! Good news is good.

    i wonder if this will decrease her angst in her lyrics, or perhaps open up a whole new world of anger from “being married” and what that brings?

  12. Talia says:

    Very exciting. I wish them both the best.

    As a kinda related aside, for anyone interested, Mr. Gaiman is narrating a performance of “Peter & the Wolf” in NYC tonight.

    Also happy for them but I hope it doesn’t mean their music and novels get all happy and sunny and shit.

    What about Christopher Lydon?!

    For reals? I thought Neil had a family with all the various parts. If it’s for reals then the best to then, though Neil, you are *lucking out*…

    Neil has three grown children, including the lovely Holly, who is one of Poesy’s favorite babysitters here in London, and an ex-wife.

    Schroedinger’s cat is certainly having kittens, but I am both dead super jealous AND very happy! Best of all possible lucks to them both!!!1!

    Congrats to my favorite author in the world and a very kind human being. May your lives together be full of joy and adventure.

    does this mean he’ll be able to discover the truth behind Amanda being/not being Nico’s (Christa Päffgen) secret offspring?

  23. Ocker3 says:

    And millions of music fans (male and female and others) wept bitter tears that their dreams will now never come true, but then went out and bought tickets to her next show.

  24. ClintonD says:

    So he’s now going to be a coin-operated author? Awesome.

    That’s going to be one of the stranger wedding gift registries ever.

    It’s nice to see that two of very few celebrities I genuinely respect have found each other; congrats!
