Ballet Shoes: Who Wants To Get Me A Christmas Present?

Being the poor, cash-strapped grad student I am, the only thing I should legitimately ask for this Christmas is money. (Well... money and a copy of Madhur Jaffrey's World-of-the-East Vegetarian Cooking. That thing's worth its weight in gold, and I've re-checked it out of the library so many times that it smells like my spice drawer.)

But the thing that I want for the day *after* Christmas is a burned DVD or VCD of Ballet Shoes.

It airs on BBC 1 on the evening of December 26. Check your local listings for showtimes.

I don't get BBC. My roommate and I have taped a pair of rabbit ears to the top of our 13-inch television (which we bought at a thrift store), and we get a little bit of fuzzy NBC/CBS/FOX and the local Christian station WTJR: "Waiting 'Till Jesus Returns."

So I need to figure out how I can otherwise see this made-for-TV movie which is probably going to be not-that-good, but is based on a book that I have pretty much memorized (and read so much as a child that the cover and many of the inner pages fell out).

Who wants to be my Secret Santa?

I should!

But none of the things mentioned in the post are available on Amazon.

Ballet Shoes is a made-for-tv movie that will require a DVD recorder, the Jaffrey cookbook is technically out of print (which means ZShops at best, or eBay), and last time I checked Amazon wasn't giving away money. ^__^
