Monday Oct 26th
Alright, so my Halloween Spooky Back Yard was a bust. But at least I tried (and as you all know, I’m a hard-core TRYer!) I had so much fun putting it together and spent money that I didn’t have on silly decorations. Now I’ll have them all on hand for the kids’ costume party this Friday (I actually have RSVPs for that so there WILL be attendees!), and next year’s Haunted Back Yard is going to be well-advertised and SPOOKTACULAR!! Muaaahahahahaaaaa! Or not, we’ll see…
Moving right along…
New this week: Virgins heading for Mexico!
Aaaaand now we see why apostrophes are important…
Virgin’s heading for Mexico! And you can go with them if you’re caller 94 after the cue to call each morning at 8:10. They have 20 trips to give away – 19 on-air, and ONE for online entries. The online entry part opens at 8:25am on November 20th and closes at midnight on the 22nd. Put the reminders in your phone RIGHT NOW because I’m probably going to forget to remind you. I can’t even guess how many people will enter online, but if you all put your reminders in your phone, there’ll be at least 140. Heh.
Other things you should know: the trip is to a 4.5 star, all-inclusive resort called Barcelo Maya Colonial in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The trip takes place May 22nd to the 29th. Don’t play if you can’t travel then! Coincidentally, I CAN travel then, so I would LOVE to go! Did I ever tell you about the time I was 8 months pregnant and sent my husband to Cancun for a week so he could have a last vacation before the baby came? He visited the Mayan Riviera then and swore he was going to take me there some day – it was SO beautiful! Well, as it turns out, after you have babies you are poor and stuck at home, so that trip never happened. Here’s our chance! And yes, we would leave the kids at home – it’s time for Mom and Dad to get their freak on! ;D
Speaking of Mexico, did you know that CFOX cancelled their Holy Guacamole contest?? They took it down off their site and stopped taking qualifiers. Something about a hurricane and preferring to send prayers rather than people. Never mind that the trip was for the other side of Mexico, and that the trip was good for a year. Oh, and the fact that I was IN THE DRAW! *weep* I’m still going to listen at 7am JUST IN CASE they decide to continue the contest, but they have the right to suspend or cancel the contest – it says so right in the rules and regs! If they bring it back, hopefully they honour previous qualifiers. Oh, and I’m hoping I still get that $50 to Chronic Tacos because YUM!
Travel is on our minds even MORE because this is the last week to qualify for Jack’s Cuba trip! EEK! The last day to text in is Thursday. I have tried SO hard to get into each Friday’s draw. No luck. *weep* Did I mention that I’ve now got a built-in babysitter? My Mom’s going to be here that week so hubby and I could sneak away guilt-free (and paid-babysitter free!) This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – never again will my Mom be here at a time when we could get away to Cuba! To that end, I did the Jack Survey for an extra 12,000 points – it was easy and only took 8 minutes. I did it slowly and thoughtfully – you could probably rip through it much faster. With those extra points I bought another 48 entries into the raffle, so now I have 205 raffle tickets for the draw on Monday Nov 2nd. The trip is Nov 8th – 14th so I’m just going to start primping and preening NOW so I’ll be ready JUST IN CASE… you just NEVER know… *hope springs eternal*
Continuing this week:
Jack is surprising people with their Win at Work names again. They called out the same name twice last week – it was a mistake, but the person called back twice so they honoured it. The first time they called the person’s name they hadn’t been listening, but I let them know so they called back in time. Since they called back the second time without my help, that just proves that the contest works! The person decided to turn on Jack because they just won free money and are now a loyal listener! SWEET! I think I’m costing Jack about $500 per day… they’ll NEVER let me go to Cuba!!! LOL!
QMFM will hopefully have a new contest announcement today – wouldn’t it be fun to go on vacation with Nat and Drew?? Fingers crossed!
This is the last week of Kiss’ Mash for Cash. It’s been a fun game, lots of happy winners.
Rock 101 calls us names at 8, 11, 2 and 5.
Peak announces the Artist of the Day every morning – if you miss it I can get it for you. Peak mentions it multiple times per hour anyway, so it’s pretty easy to catch…
JRFM is playing Lotto 937 and the first draw’s winner is announced at 8:10. Once the draw is done they will start the game again, with the jackpot going up to $10,000. I guess that’s when they’ll post the new play times, so until then, just assume it’ll happen every hour on Monday – you won’t be far off. As much as I LOVE JRFM (and you KNOW what a fan I am!), I hate this contest. I hate that are a bazillion people in the draw, I hate that all the money goes to one person, and I hate that even if you WERE the right caller at every play, you’d still only have 84 ballots in the draw (85 if you entered online too). I am begging you JRFM, please please PLEASE bring back Moolah!!! Different amounts to different people, spreading the wealth, immediate gratification, assured randomness, and oodles of fun! Oodles and OODLES of fun!!! *sigh*
And finally: ZFX. I was told an amazing guess for it but I can’t share it with you because it’s not my guess. If this person gets through, it’s game over. At least, I *think* so. It’s a damned good guess… Lucky Andy is taking his girlfriend to Vegas and getting a whole different level of lucky! I must admit I completely forgot about that lightbulb on Zed’s Home Page… stupid Pro D Day… Bring on Gold Digger!!! 😀
