Tuesday June 30th

Posted on Jun 30, 2015

Monday was interesting. First I won 5th row 1D tickets on Z95.3 – I haven’t won anything from Zed in over a year, but I always play. I was amazed when I got the right song (they play it backwards and you have to name it) –  I guess I’m a bigger fan of 1D than I knew! So I will be taking my 8.5 year old to it – she’s not really sure about the whole thing yet, but when her friends find out she’s going to be the envy of grade 4 in September! ;D

Then a friend texted to ask if I could babysit her 3 kids – her husband started using heroin again and she couldn’t leave their 6, 4, and 1 year olds with him while she went to work. WTF?! I had 15 minutes to get my sh!t together and I was HAPPY to do it. I just can’t imagine having a partner that you can’t lean on. Though my husband drives me around the bend some days, he is present, sober, and responsible. So I took our brood to the water park, and while the first hour was rough on me (it’s been almost 4 years since I had a 1 year old to entertain!), by the end of hour 2, everything was going smoothly. By the end of hour 4, I was sad to take them back home! Our kids were playing happily together, and the water park was nice and shady (ie. COOL!) Monday morning my plan was to do some chores and blogging, and it looked like I was going to have a nice relaxing day. It didn’t turn out that way, but no day of chores could have compared to the good feelings of hanging out with these wonderful kids and knowing that I helped out a friend! 

Carrying on. From Monday – there are updates so read carefully:

JRFM has Sunfest passes this week – WOW!! They are full festival passes – too bad the ferry costs an arm and a leg, otherwise I’d love to see Keith Urban et al. If you live on the island or are going, listen for the cue to call 3 times per day. The Waking Crew is away but Docc has the Secret Word every morning. Barbara Beam is here, and she’s got PNE passes so you can see Clint Black! Everyone that wins is in for the grand prize on Friday, which includes meet and greets, fair ride passes, and a $100 Visa. Nice!!

Rock 101 has Bon Jovi in the Park tickets during the morning show. And let’s not forget to qualify for that amazing trip to Disneyland!!! 

Kiss has 1D tickets and Playland passes too with the KCS. You can also win Playland passes and qualify for the VIP Playland experience happening July 15th.

Jack has Bon Jovi tickets with the morning show, which is Big Ginger this week as Kiah and Tara Jean are sloughing off. ;D They also have the last pair of Seinfeld tickets today at 9am.

Virgin has $250 e-Transfers 4 times per day, at 7:10, 11:10, 1:10, and 3:10. They also have $75 to Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria between 9 and 2, and 1D tickets TWICE each night during Denai’s show, 6-10pm!

QMFM will have their last pair of Seinfeld tickets with the morning show.

Bro Jake has Journey tickets during his show, and Larry and Corrie have them at 8am.

Everytime you hear a Mumford & Sons song on The Peak, text the word “WIN” to 88000 to win weekend passes to Squamish Fest. ***PLEASE NOTE*** “win” must be the FIRST word of your text, followed by your full name, and it must be done before the song ends!!! It’ll happen 4 times per day! If you can’t text, they have a spare pair for Peak VIPs so go log in and enter. 

The Peak made an announcement yesterday that was worth tuning in for! All the deets in the post HERE!

Z95.3 gave away that cool car on Friday. Now they have a cruise, in fact, TWO cruises. Enter on their site, just log in and find the bear. The cruise date is set for August 16th to 23rd, so don’t enter if you can’t go those dates. They will give those away on July 3rd (Friday). No other contest announcements as of yet, but I’ll keep my ear to the ground…

And a quick reminder for those of you who listen to Vancouver Island stations, my friend Contests Vancouver Island has all the details of the contests over there. Check it out at, and join them on their Facebook page for more good stuff!

Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
