My partner just woke up, and told me 16 free concert tickets were dropped off here last night around 9 PM, after I had fallen asleep early watching TV.

They're for the Madonna "Sticky and Sweet" tour in Miami this Wednesday, donated by a guy for us to distribute at the HIV/AIDS agency where I volunteer.

We're welcome to keep some for ourselves, but not sure either of us are interested in the hassle of getting down to Miami for Madonna. It'll be enough of a challenge figuring how to transport any clients who take them, many of whom don't have cars. I'll let the VP for Operations decide which clients to pick, since client services comes under her division.

But this should make some people happy just before Thanksgiving. And here I was merely buying turkeys for our local AIDS food bank, and this guy does Madonna. Amazing that we're still seeing strong donations to HIV/AIDS charities here, despite the economic mess.
