Tuesday Sept 8th
It’s here! The day I’ve been dreaming of – both kids in school! EEEEK! Sure, it starts slowly, but by next Monday, they should both be in school full days. What a great birthday present for MOI! So I’m free for lunch, if anyone wants to take me out for my birthday on the 14th… 😀
There are a few things starting this week, most notably Jack’s Cuba trip. They will start qualifying people at 8am – listen for the code word, then text it to 969-007. If you are the 96th texter, you are qualified for Friday’s trip. There are 8 weeks of this contest, but this week is the best time to qualify – because of the short week there will only be 9 names in the draw instead of the 15 for the other 7 draws! So the people who qualify on Friday will be in the following Friday’s draw at 7:15am. This week’s qualifiers on Tues, Wed and Thurs at 8, 12, and 4 will be in this Friday’s draw. SWEET!
The trip happens Nov 8th to 14th, so only play if you can go then. And if you win, be sure to check out the reviews on Trip Advisor – I geeked out on their reviews today and got a TON of good info. If we get to go (I SOOOOOO WANT TO GO!!!), we will be bringing our own sheets, spices, ketchup, sunscreen, antacids, Tylenol, bandaids, bug spray, and to-go mugs! Just one more thing: it doesn’t say you can only qualify once, but if you’ve qualified for one, they aren’t likely to let you qualify again – the problem with these text-in contests is that they can pick and choose who they want to qualify (all they have to do is compare the number of the 96th texter to their list of phone numbers and they know who you are and what you’ve won in the past. If you’re a previous winner, they may take the 97th texter.) I’m not saying they WILL do that, I’m saying they COULD do that. But I’m still going to try, because I believe that if I want it badly enough, maybe they will have pity on me and take me with them. Haha!
Also on Jack, next week they start giving away tickets to ACDC. To get in on that, you need to e-mail in your video THIS week – a 30 second clip of you lip syncing to one of 3 songs: Highway to Hell, Back in Black, or You Shook Me All Night Long. Send it to email@example.com. I think probably only the winning videos will be shared publicly, so no shame if you suck and don’t win!
JRFM has been teasing us with a “coming this fall” contest, where they are giving away $1000 per day, plus jackpots of $5000, $10,000 and $15,000. I don’t know when this starts, but fall officially starts on the 21st so…. ?? This might be that contest where we have to collect the 5 words each day, enter them online by midnight, then a winner is chosen at random each morning. I can’t remember how the big jackpots were allotted, but I guess we’ll find out soon. I don’t recall liking this contest very much, but I have high hopes – maybe it’s a different contest altogether!
Also on JRFM they are going to be playing Brody and Brandt back to back with PaCK, Docc, and Jaxon’s shows. You could win your way in to their concert at Abbotsford Centre on September 25th. I’d love to go if it wasn’t so far away – Paul Brandt is wonderful!
The Peak is up to something, but they’re keeping it a secret until Wednesday. Buggers! Haha! I have no idea what it is but I can’t wait to find out!
CFOX continues with Guess Duress, with today’s jackpot starting at $1000. Rock 101 is still doing ACDC, QMFM has Beat the Bank, and Zed has that blasted Z-FX! I can’t believe that the jackpot is already at $7000! Seven. Thousand. Dollars. It wouldn’t change my life, but it would SURE HELP!!! I’ve gotten through a dozen times but I’m never the right caller. Imma keep trying!!!
Bro Jake will have $250 e-transfers for caller 10, listen for the cue to call. Also listen for the chance to qualify to play the Amacon Bro Jake Open, and the Jays text-in code word.
Kiss is quiet, Virgin makes us wait till Thursday, and LG is laying low. Updates to follow.
