I've been lurking on your blog for months. I'm a big fan :) And thanks for posting the Neil-Gaiman-does-David-Tennant-as-Doctor-Who-Doing -Hamlet. It was perfect! Now, I just need to donate a kidney to get Stratford-upon-Avon and all is well :D

Rose Falstaff

It is a big and boastful rose, surprise surprise :D
