Wordpress filter: What's the best way to easily integrate a modal/popup window into a self-hosted wordpress blog?

I've got two things I'd like to accomplish on two different sites.
1) A simple popup window that will last for about a week, notifying visitors of a grand opening event.
2) Another simple popup asking for people to subscribe to the mailing list.
I want these to be the first thing people see when loading the main page.
I'd like it to notice people who have been to the site before, so it doesn't end up over-nagging people, I hate that.
But, if I run a popup for a week, and then a month later run a different pop-up, it would be nice for the code to notice the different and pop the second iteration of it up for repeat visitors.
These are for different sites. I'd love to find an easy to use plugin, or a simple way to code it in that would be wordpress friendly.
I can hack my way around wordpress themes, tailoring them to meet my needs, but I couldn't build one from scratch... hopefully that will give you a gauge to my coding skills. I'm better at debugging and mining than creating.
