Wednesday March 18th
Well, this is awkward…
Yesterday was a bummer day. I was feeling really down about stuff, and couldn’t get through for anything. In fact, I haven’t gotten through for anything in ages. Well, that’s not true – I won Barbados and Larry’s Mix tape. But other than that, I haven’t won a call-in contest in 6 months, and even then it was tickets to a football game! I have tried desperately for Beat the Bank, ZFX, Gold Digger, etc etc etc. Nada.
Times are tough all over. I made the kids watch tv all day – the gas tank is empty and I couldn’t afford to drive them to the park or library. No point walking to the store, didn’t have money for groceries. So I sat here, at my desk, staring at my computer screen. Waiting for what, I wasn’t sure. I tried to figure out Song 3 for the Mix Tape and got nowhere. Once I had caught all the Jack names, the ZFX guesses, the JRFM TS names, the LG guesses, there was nothing left to do. I turned on 101. I was surprised when Smooth started shortly after that! I waffled – should I try calling? It’s Dean! He’s cool, right? I dunno. Hubby likes him. Huh… so I waited. And listened. When that song ended and I heard the cue to call, my mind went blank, my adrenalin kicked in, and just for shits ‘n’ giggles, I HAD to try!
I haven’t won anything from Rock 101 in 1.5 years. And before that, I won two things – a trip to Vegas and some concert tickets. So in the 30 or so years Rock 101 has been around, I’ve won 3 things from them. That’s right, three. I was caller 10 and I’m going on a plane to frigging VEGAS with 38 other Rock 101 listeners!!! As much as I said I didn’t want to go, it’s too hot in Vegas in May, I’ve already seen Santana, Rock 101 won’t let me win, etc etc etc, the truth is this: I love Vegas. My husband loves Santana. Rock 101 has no reason to ban me from winning. And, just like in high school, I scoff at the cool kids until I am invited to party with them and then I’m all like “lookit me, I’m with the cool kids!!!” *BARF*
He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named called immediately. He was congratulatory and jovial. I waited for the other shoe to drop… Nope! No shoe! It was pleasant and friendly. I am wary, as I’ve been scratched by seemingly friendly cats before (thus my dislike of cats). I will accept this prize with humility and gratefulness – I never expected to win, but am so thrilled to be going (with maybe some ContestsVan.com readers??) And then I will hang my Rock 101 hat up and just tune in to listen to Willy.
Unless they have ACDC tickets. (Just kidding)
Now, on with our show! Everything is the same as yesterday, except for the Breakfast Television stuff and some extra info. If you know of something I should add, let me know.
