For the first time ever, the radio station I've been using as an alarm clock is offering a giveaway which tempts me to call in to try to get it: tickets to have dinner with Laura Pausini on Friday. I've been listening to her music for better part of the last 10 years and I know she's about my age. This is her first foray into the English-language market and put all that together and it's more incentive than I have for most of the artists and events they advertise. Plus I suspect they'll have fewer people trying for the tickets than they often would.

I don't know her recent album(s) but I still like singing along to the early ones.

On a different subject, I have two dilemmas at the moment.

Dilemma #1 - The LOTR DVD. I've never owned a dvd before but I have a player now. Should I ask for it for Christmas and wait? The problem is... I've found it substantially cheaper than I suspect the likely gift-givers have. And... even more than the dvd itself, what I've really been coveting are the Argonath bookends which, awkwardly, requires me to buy the collector's edition of the dvds, which are even more expensive, and thus it's even better that Indigo has them for a third off right now.

Dilemma #2 - Which Harry Potter showing to go to on Friday. If I go to the early show, I miss UTARPA, throw any chances of that Laura Pausini dinner out the window, and possibly get neckache... but... I'd then have the happy prospect of going out for drinks afterwards with nice people and discussing the movie. I can always make up UTARPA showings by renting the dvds, but that somewhat defeats the point of paying for the membership. Or... I could go to the late showing with the Major St. household, go to UTARPA, but not have drinks afterwards and fail to establish a yearly tradition of seeing these movies with pittenweem, Hey, if I go with her, maybe a tv station will interview us about it again!
