This is a day of triumph. And capslock.

Yes, I already used up my free Audible.com trial membership before I realized it was an amazing thing, and just thought it was a novelty freebie.

BUT. I HAVE A MOTHER.

WHO HAS NOT USED HER FREE TRIAL.

AND WHO VERY GRACIOUSLY JUST USED HER CARD INFO TO GET ME A FREE AUDIO COPY OF LAND OF STORIES.

All cued up on the player now. Soon my ears will be bathed in heaven.

But not really because the desire to own a shiny new hardcover and read it in that form first will not go away, yet since my brother doesn't have Amazon Prime anymore I have to lie in wait and shop around to find a price low enough to balance out shipping charges.

(Man, this business of wanting brand-new books is agonizing. I don't know how you live with yourselves wanting or even actually purchasing new books on a regular basis, knowing the kind of inflation rate you are paying versus waiting a few months. I mean, I'm glad you keep the book industry alive for people like me and all, but yeesh)

In other news, a poor little bird got stuck on the porch today and was fluttering itself into a frenzy at the windows in the corner of the wrong end. It was so focused on escape that I got close enough to touch it. Luckily, once I opened the door all the way it only took about 3 seconds of shooing it in that direction before it found the open path and shot back outside. Not as heroic as rescuing a beached stingray, but I like to think I've done my part for nature today.
