Monday July 27th

Posted on Jul 26, 2015

When we were at Costco last week we saw a mother getting very angry at her child. They were walking out of the store – I think it was the mom, dad, and grandma. The girl was maybe 5 years old. I don’t know what she had done but mom and grandma were pissed! One of them (I didn’t notice which one) screamed in her face and smacked her behind HARD. I could tell it was hard because I heard it, and the kid screamed and cried all the way to the elevators, holding her bum. I try very hard not to judge other people’s parenting, but that just cut me to the core. I don’t hit my kids, and as far as I know I was never hit myself, so I don’t understand the purpose of it – it seems so gutteral and violent, and frigging scary. Maybe kids get used to it so it’s not so traumatic for them, but I’ll tell you this – it was traumatic for ME to watch! Again, I don’t want to judge anyone’s parenting techniques – I am no model parent and make my fair share of mistakes (I yell and swear a lot) – but man, it was hard to hold my tongue while I stood agape, aching for that poor child. My heart hurt for her – how horrible to not feel safe when you’re surrounded by the adults who supposedly love you.

And on that note, earlier this week I wrote a post that I think all stay-at-home Moms can relate to. Or maybe anyone else who is having an emotional affair (with the future). You can read that HERE. I also wrote a post about our lame-ass summer activities – you can read that HERE

And then let’s get on with the week:

Virgin is giving you a chance to win a 2 year lease on a new car. You can read the post I wrote about it HERE. To warm you up, they have $75 gas cards at 7:10, 11:10, 1:10, and 3:10. 

Kiah and Tara Jean on Jack are playing Like a Version for Madonna tickets at 7:40.

Bro Jake has Whitecaps tickets with his show on TSN.

Kiss also has Madonna tickets with Ara’s show. The KCS will have TSwift tickets – row 5-1 – just listen for the cue to text 10456.

CFOX is giving away 20 VIP packages to Squamish Fest. Every weekday between July 20th and 31st they will give away a SVMF package that includes 3 nights at the Executive Suites Hotel and Resort. Listen for the code word at 4pm each weekday and the 99th texter to 843369 wins it! The morning show also has Whitecaps tickets.

Listen to Rock 101 to qualify for a trip to Disneyland, qualify at 8, 11, 2 and 5. 

I just noticed that LG has a contest called Truth or Larry at 7am, where caller 4 has to guess if the “Madonna fact” is true or Larry made it up. I don’t know if this is from last week or not, let me know if YOU know! They also had reserved seating for Shorefest and the fireworks last week with the Song of the Day – I’m sorry I missed that! If they have it this week I will include it in the schedule. 

QMFM has weekend passes for Squamish Fest at 7:05, 9:05, 11:05, and 3:05. Breakfast With Nat and Drew have Taylor Swift tickets at 8:05. Olivia Jones has Whitecaps tickets.

JRFM’s secret word prizes are great this week: a 4 pack of passes to the PNE including 4 ride passes (OMG I want that!) or tickets PLUS meet and greets to Terri Clark at the Northwest Washington Fair on Aug 21st. Not only that, the Waking Crew will also have TSwift tickets! Whaaaaat?! Crap, I’m going to have to try for those – TSwift trumps the PNE any day! To top it all off, the person who gets the most questions right this week wins the meet and greet passes. GAH!!!

I haven’t heard who won the sleep over at the PNE prize home – did they choose yet? Maybe they’ll announce that Monday morning. I also noticed that they have changed their name – it’s no longer “The Waking Crew”, it’s now “Mornings With Clay and Karen”. Huh. Change is good, and I like that they are mixing it up a bit. However, I would prefer a more interesting name. Like wouldn’t it be more fun to say “The Morning Chew with Clay and Karen”? Or maybe “A.M. Ramblings with Clay and Karen”, or “The Rise and Shine Crew” so Purvey is included. How about “The Dawning” or “Clay and Karen Shake You Awake” or “Coffee with Clay and Karen”. I personally like “Whine and Cheese with Clay and Karen”. LOL!

Z95.3 has TSwift tickets again but only at 7:05. You could win a meet and greet if you join in on their secret mission – just text “Swift” to 953953 and they’ll send you the instructions. If you don’t text, you can copy and paste this into your browser and get in on the action:

I am SO impressed by Cruise – he has a HUGE smile on his face the whole time, and he does it all surprisingly well! The freestyle part needs more energy though. LOL! I would LOVE to do this with my kids, but that’s the day I’m having my colonoscopy – how shitty! Anyway, YOU should go. The weather looks good, and it’s right at lunchtime so if you work downtown you can surely make it. I can’t wait to see the video of it! Doing it gets you into the draw for the meet and greet before the show, but it doesn’t say on the site whether you win tickets to the WHOLE show. I’m going to assume YES.

Another fun thing you should get in on is Peak’s Careoke! Why are there still only TWO videos up for this?! It’s easy peasy, and you win free GAS!!! I could totally use some myself, but I can’t win it. I am going to do a video just for shits ‘n’ giggles though, because I love making a fool of myself in public. So watch for that later this week. The Big Fat Gay Wedding is happening on Saturday by Science World. I’m taking my kids down – I LOVE weddings!!! And then we can go to Science World after… 😀

Rounding out our Monday is Breakfast Television, who is giving away tickets to Bon Jovi and The Kings Of Suburbia in Stanley Park! Watch at 6:10, 7:10, and 8:10 for your entry instructions (usually a word you have to e-mail in, a different word each hour, so 3 entries into the draw. You only have to email once to get in the draw, getting more code words just gets you more entries and a better shot at winning!)

There will be updates later so check back!

Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
