Monday Dec 7th

Posted on Dec 7, 2015

Well? Did you do it? Did you put up your Christmas decorations? Buy the tree? Hang the lights? AUGH!! I got NONE of that done!!! This rain is making me feel SO un-christmassy. The most productive thing I did was go to the Santa Claus Parade downtown and entered a contest that required a special bottle of hot sauce from one of the floats. The prize is for 2 flights to Mexico, which would be a nice escape from all this wetness. But it’s JUST the flights with Aero Mexico from Vancouver to Mexico City, accommodations aren’t included. Bummer. I wonder how much a hotel in Mexico City would cost…

The other thing we did this weekend was binge watched a bunch of Drunk History episodes! Have you seen this show? They get people sh!tfaced and video them as they tell a story. Not just any story, but a real-life history lesson. It’s funny to watch as the person gets drunker and drunker – the story gets funnier and funnier. Not only that, but it’s acted out by famous actors, who mouth the words that the narrator is saying, and when the narrator makes a mistake they look at the camera like “wtf?!” I literally peed myself watching Ryan Gosling in Twas The Night Before Christmas. If you want to laugh yourself silly, go watch it HERE. But pee first. Trust me.

Listen for JRFM’s Christmas Song of the Day. The PaCK will tell you what song it is, then when you hear it, text “CASH” followed by your name to 88000. As soon as the song is over they will award the $100. The song will play multiple times per day, and will also play on weekends. More interesting, in my opinion, is the Secret Word prize – Dixie Chicks tickets!! SQUEEEEE!! Those women are fab! That would be a wicked concert!!

Jack has a Santa sack! Reach in and you could win cash. But first you have to text in the codeword that they will give you at 8:10 to 969007. If they choose you, they will call you and get you to “reach into the sack” to pull out your prize. Maybe you win money, maybe you win crap. Ugh. Not thrilled. Firstly, I know they will never pick me. Secondly, how much would it suck to win a lump of coal?! Or a car wash by Kieran?! I love Jack but I don’t love this contest. Blah.

Kiah and Tara Jean will also have a pair of cool Lazy Ones onesies during their show. Not sure how they will give them away, but these look really great! They’ve got adult and kids’ onesies with a flap (for pooping and peeing while staying warm, if you’re unfamiliar with the flap concept!) but they also have yoga pant pjs, kids’ pj sets, and the cutest tee dresses! What a unique gift that would make! I’d love a pair of those yoga pant pjs… you know, if I were on your Xmas list… 😀

The Kid Carson Show will have tickets to Rihanna during their show all week. Oh joy, another text-in contest. Blah. When you hear the cue to call, text CONCERT to 10456. I like that they don’t ask for your name, but still not a fan of text-in contests…

Peak is playing Perfect 10 again! If you get all 10 right right off the bat, you get $1,000. If it takes more than 1 person to get them all right, winner gets $100 to Bomber Brewing. They keep playing until the game finishes, but they only play once per day – at 7:10am. Also, at 8:30 each morning they will announce the winner of a Home For The Holidays flight! I will listen in for sure – I love that shit! Good luck if you entered.

Rock 101 has a $500 song.

CFOX has WEGE (White Elephant Gift Exchange) at 8, 11, 2, and 5. I played last week, you can read about that HERE.

QMFM has Rihanna tickets at 9:05 and 3:05, and Olivia will have passes to Vancouver Winter Wonderland – this sounds like loads of fun, might be worth checking out! It’s open 3-11 on weekdays and 11-11 on weekends. They’re done crashing Xmas parties for the year – looks like they had bunches of fun! Unless Nat and Drew are taking holidays now, I suspect they’ll have some sort of contest announcement this morning…

Virgin also has Rihanna tickets and that Vancouver Winter Wonderland package. Virgin also has a trip to give away this morning – this one is to Cuba, and they draw from online entries. Good luck if you entered. And the Gleesome Threesome give away $200 in jewellery from Rodan to caller 25 at 8:10.

The 12 Days of Jakemas starts today. Bro Jake will give away 4 prizes per day for 10 days. I guess if you add the weekend, that’s 12 days, but no prizes will be given out on the weekend. Ha! This morning’s prize is the best one I see – Harbour Air flights to Sechelt and yacht accommodations, including a tour, dinner, and brunch. Sweet!! Other prizes this week are $500 cash, an Exotic Driving Experience, Whitecaps tickets and gear, and Giants tickets and a ring. Nice!!

LG’s site still says “Larry will play the $1000 One Second Song”. Hope they fix that soon, it makes me sad…

And Z95.3 is giving you (or ME!) a $500 gift card for Metropolis at Metrotown! Yahoooo!!! Love it!

Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
