I had expected it to be one of the two (not knowing, beforehand, that Bright Saturday even existed), but I figure oh well.

Thank you, by the way.

Lest I give God another chance to laugh at me, bump this once you have been received. Till then you will be in my prayers, especially during the Prayers for the Catechumens.

Thank you all, very much.  This community has been helpful, I think, in my journey to Orthodoxy both as I was learning more about it and after I finally decided to take a leap of faith and attend a service.
