Posted on Oct 16, 2015

I wrote a couple of ZFX posts – one’s a Seussified poem (HERE) and the other is an attempt to break it down, but basically it’s just babble (HERE).

Other things that happened on Thursday: Preet won $15,000 on Virgin (congrats!), that banker was a stingy beotch on QM (tho I missed the 4pm play so maybe it went higher then?), and Rock 101 decided to re-call a name that they had already called.

Let’s look at that last item: they called “Harry Whalen” (Waylen? Whelon? Whalon?) at 5pm on Tuesday. Harry did not call back within the ten minutes. Today at 5pm, they called Harry Whalen again. This time, “Harry” called back. “Harry” sounded an awful lot like a woman whispering. Now, I’m not saying that there aren’t men out there who have high voices, and I’m not saying that “Harry” isn’t short for “Harriet”. But it seems rather suspicious that they called the SAME name at the SAME time, and then “Harry” sounds like a woman whispering (which is what I would do if I wanted to disguise my voice, which I don’t!) Maybe when Harry called in on Tuesday, something odd happened.

Maybe on Tuesday he tried and tried and tried to get through but the lines were busy busy busy, and then he (she?) complained. And because they had already announced that the previous winner gets another $250, they couldn’t renege on that, but they could simply call the name again to be fair. And maybe when they called the name, Harry wasn’t available so his wife called in pretending to be him. Maybe. But we’ll never know. Unless one of you knows Harry/iet?

Moving on…

I wrote a post for the various visits you can get from the stations – they bring coffee, lunch, treats, whatever – you can read that HERE.

And HERE is the post for online entry contests for those of you who hate having to call in to win.
