The Sandman Season of Mists #2

bathbookneil:

My boyfriend and I went as Delirium & Destiny to a party today - so here’s a photo of me as Delirium in our tiny bathroom. No tub I’m afraid, so this will have to do…

P.S.:  You get to see the boyfriend tomorrow!

Lush Update

Check this out!

Can’t wait to see what happens.  :-)

If this happens…

Er, I’m not sure. But it would be amazing.

Lush are wonderful, and about 5 years ago they did a STARDUST bath bomb.

Last Friday Amanda went for a walk with Jason Webley, I went for a walk with my kids. I stopped off at the Cambridge Lush, spent too much money buying things that I know Amanda likes (eg massage bars with beans in, and the angels facial scrub stuff) and some of the things that I like (such as the Big shampoo). 

When Amanda got home she proudly presented me with all the things she’d got as presents for me that I’d bought myself, and she’d happily bought herself all the things that I’d bought her. So our friends and family got extra Lush goodies that day…

The Absolute Sandman #1

Coraline reading Sandman

I think what I like best about the bookbathneil tumblr is how very fast it headed into surrealism.

Neverwhere #6

My lady Martha approves of my literary choices, but she’s not getting anywhere near those bubbles. No sir.

A Different Kind of Offering: Bathing with Gaiman by Zenobia Frost

bathbookneil:

Bathing with Gaiman:

Before reading in the bath,
I ease the book’s
jacket off. I

test
the steaming water with one toe
and shuffle off my own dust cover
to step
and slide
in and under,

holding the book above my head
like an umbrella. Then, spread
with my arms leaning on my legs,
I read, turning the pages

with the tip
of my tongue.

Later, while I scrub
idly
or shave my legs
with my right hand,

I realise I’ve gone
cover to cover (or nearly).

The fingers of my left arm sulk
and strain, and I must
balance the book on my head
to flex the lameness out (and again

till feeling returns).
Then I swap hands and finish
my story and scrubbing,

to step out clean and complete,
steeped in someone else’s
glistening words.

Zenobia Frost writes poetry in cemeteries, articles at a desk in a backyard rainforest, and to-do lists on receipts, bits of paper, the back of her hand, and flatmates’ spare bits of skin. She writes, edits, and types for a living, and occasionally orchestrates cabaret events that are really an excuse to drink tea. Her work has appeared in StylusMascaraSmall PackagesBurdock (USA), Rave MagazineFamous Reporter, and Voiceworks, and she has performed at the Queensland Poetry Festival, Tasmianian Poetry Festival, and around Australia with the Queensland Touring Poets Program. Her debut collection, The Voyage, was published by SweetWater Press in 2009.

Zenobia’s poem, Bathing with Gaiman is one of the sixteen poems featured on A Million Bright Things.

Three of my favorite things all in one place.Glorious.

joleneparton:

Reading @neilhimself in the bathtub (the illustrated edition of Stardust with Charles Vess). Just barely SFW, if you have a fairly permissive office.

This is the internet. Is there actually a dedicated place for happy photos of people reading my books in the bath?

There is now!  Send me your photos, people, and I’ll put ‘em up.  I’m student enough (and therefore bored enough in class) to take on this task.  Address them to bathbookneil@gmail.com if you don’t want to do a Tumblr submission.

Why, thank you. I love it when things move at the speed of internet. 
(And as far as I am concerned, people can be reading their books in the bath naked, fully dressed, they can be of any gender or all, masked, alone, or in groups of as many of them as can fit into a bath.)
(I’ve never successfully read in the shower, although I HAVE tried.)

Recorded the same day that Amanda and I publically said that, yes, we were dating (in response to a question at the benefit gig we were doing). So, a long time ago. Over two and half years ago, anyway.

You do not want to know where the jacket came from, nor what it smelled like in the bath.
