Homemade chowder, Alias, and Lord of the Rings

I'm making corn chowder tomorrow. Mind you, I'd much rather leave work now and go home and immerse myself in dicing potatoes, carrots, and onions, but work tends to frown on that sort of thing, unfortunately.

David's got a VtES tournament tomorrow, so I'll have the day to myself. Once I've got everything pleasantly melding in the crockpot, it would be nice to have some time with my sister -- she's been wanting to come over and watch the Alias box set, but I couldn't get her on the phone last night.

If she can't make it, maybe I'll curl up with a book (perhaps the Windows on the World 2004 Wine Course), or with Knights of the Old Republic. Or I've got several tasks I can do if I'm feeling productive. Kind of hoping for an Alias and chowder day, though. The January chill has me in the mood to stay in with some hot soup and comfortable company.

We placed an order for the Howard Shore Lord of the Rings concert in June with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The response e-mail is a bit confusing: "your order will be processed in the order in which it was received" in the first paragraph, and "if you don't hear from us, assume your order was filled" in a later paragraph. No pleasant confirmation indicating precisely that the tickets have been purchased and reserved. We'll see what happens.
