Audible is having a half-price sale this week, which is excellent since I could do with some audiobook restocking for my trip.

Picked up four Philip K. Dick stories:

The Golden Man — story I couldn’t find in print, which the upcoming movie Next is based on.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? — story Blade Runner was based on
Galactic Pot-Healer
and Martian Time-Slip

Can’t explain why I’m so into this guy’s work right now, but barring getting the rest of The Dresden Files on loan from Bert, I’m really looking forward to listening these ASAP! I may put down Spook to vegetate with an iPod for a while. Loved the first two Dresden Files books, btw. That was another case of put everything else down until I’m done with these.

Ah… good stories, short and sweet vacation upcoming, final week of driving all over Atlanta for these appointments… this could be a great week. Oh, and an appointment with our realtor to look at houses on the day after we get back! GREAT week! OH! And seeing the trailer for the next Harry Potter Movie! GREAT WEEK!! =)

And I just got flowers. See above re: week.

    Ahh, Phillip K. Dick!

    Did you know that he used hallucinagens to write a lot of his stories?

    Weird guy, perhaps even stranger than the personal history of H.P. Lovecraft (his parents both being insane might have helped him obsess over madness, I reckon) …

    … of course, you don’t need trauma, drugs, and insanity to be a great writer, but it certainly does seem to help!

    I second the ‘woot’! JoAnne is coming tomorrow to put our house on the market, and I’ve already started salivating all over my keyboard looking at new houses.

    You know, I didn’t know per se, but yeah… I suspected. Normal brains don’t work that way. I think that’s why I love it. It mostly just messes with my head. =)
