PLEDGE DILEMMA ALERTZ!

So, Wait Wait’s pledge gifts were a bust (no Carl Kassel pillow. Weak) but This American Life is on now and their gift is this USB flash drive, which is awesome. My dilemma is this: do I donate now and guarantee an awesome gift, or gamble on Prairie Home Companion having an even greater gift later tonight?

(There’s a rebroadcast of TAL later tonight but I don’t know if I can count on the flash drive being available again. I tweeted @KQED, hopefully they will respond. In the next half hour.)

Edit: OK. I decided to wait it out and see what PHC has to offer. The flash drive is available from the TAL store if I have a “OMG I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN IT” panic moment, and there’s a chance that PHC’s gift will be (a) awesome and (b) not available in their store.
