Because it leads to days like today.
I received two very exciting bits of information yesterday: an email from Canberra Theatre telling me that bookings were open for Avenue Q
(even better, at a discounted rate)
And the weekend's Kmart catalogue (finally) arrived in my mail box informing me that Flight of the Conchords series 2 was instore on July 27th.
Since none of my friends seemed interested in Avenue Q (possibly it was my hasty description: "It's like Sesame Street with drugs and porn!") and since I've been stashing $8 a week into my Theatre subscription account, I could book right away. Especially handy as today I was working not more than 30 seconds away from the Canberra Theatre ticket office.
As for Flight of the Conchords being available yesterday? Kmart was dreaming. No one had it (including Kmart) and they were all quoting a delivery date of tomorrow. I did my best (ironic) Veruca Salt impersonation at one of Canberra's few remaining local CD stores and lo and behold I had a copy in my hot little hands just after 5pm tonight.
Guess what I plan to spend the rest of the evening doing?
