Last week I heard on my favorite radio station Mix 94.7 that they had a contest for guest passes for the Austin City Limits (ACL) taping for Duffy ("Mercy" and "Warwick Avenue"), and you had to register on the Mix website. I thought, "What the heck" and registered and forgot all about it.

Yesterday afternoon right after I got ready for work and was getting my lunch bag together, the phone rang and the Caller ID display showed INTERCOM AUSTIN. Thinking that it was a telemarketer, I figured that they would leave a message if they wanted me to call back, so I listened to see if they would leave a message. The person calling introduced themselves as "Kristina" from Mix 94.7 and I literally RIPPED the phone off its cradle to answer it.

Kristina introduced herself and said that I had registered on their site to see Duffy at the ACL taping and I was a WINNER!!! I was the winner of 2 guest passes and Kristina gave me the the date and time - this Wednesday, the 12th at 3pm as well as other information. I asked if the people in attendance can get her autograph (I have her CD) and Kristina said that there would be no "meet and greet". I'm taking my CD and permanent marker anyway. You just never know about these things.

I was totally beside myself because I haven't won anything in a LONG time. The first person I called was my friend Gina. I asked her if she was doing anything on Wednesday afternoon and she said that she was taking Amy (her daughter) to Bertram to get her hair done. Amy just turned 17 last Wednesday and Gina said that she would talk to Amy to see if she could drive herself to her hair appointment. Since I consider myself to be Amy's honorary "aunt", I told Gina to tell Amy her Aunt Lorie that she was old enough to drive herself to Bertram for her hair appointment. Gina said that she'll go with me and she'll tell Amy that she can drive herself.

I called my boyfriend Jon on the way to work to tell him about it - too bad he isn't going to be in Austin that day or I would have him go with me. Poor Jon!

Later, I talked to my boss Jeff when I got to work and told him about what I won and I needed to take some time off on Wednesday to go to this and that I would be at work later that night - he said that it was okay. I found out that my friend Rodney won 2 passes off another radio station except that he had to answer a trivia question in order to get his versus me just registering on the radio station website. He's taking his brother Reagan, so I told him that they should sit with me and Gina.

So, I got lucky for a change - oops! I got lucky last month when I met my boyfriend - what a guy! It looks like my luck has turned around and I'm really happy.

I'll write a follow-up after the ACL taping...
