I just read a conversation at Plurk between two of my mutual "friends," both of whom I have met "In Real Life," and both of whom I have corresponded with for some time, in which they discuss how amazing it is that NEIL GAIMAN will be their first mutual real-life acquaintance.
Up until now, the whole N.G. thing has been more-or-less a running gag.
Now where I stand with my internet/irl "friends."
Yes, I'm being petty.
But this does hurt.
