Thursday Dec 10th

Posted on Dec 10, 2015

Sooooo… I went to pick up my prizes from Corus on Wednesday (the movie passes and Spaghetti Factory gift cards from CKNW and the $500 Grouse Mountain Bad Santa prize from CFOX). It was fairly uneventful, but I’ll tell you what’s got me puzzled:

  1. My prize was from CFOX, yet He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named delivered the prize (he works for Rock 101)
  2. At no time did the receptionist speak to anyone, so how did she notify HWSNBN that I was there?

The CFOX promo guy Sean had called to tell me the prize was on his desk, so I could pick it up anytime. I got there around 12:30, so maybe he was out for lunch. That’s fine, but why wasn’t HWSNBN out for lunch? And why wasn’t the prize at the reception desk like it usually is?

On top of that, the receptionist dialled the phone a few times and hung up, but I was standing there watching her – she did not speak to ANYONE. Nor did she leave the reception area. So HOW did HWSNBN know that I was there? How very, very ODD.

When the receptionist said “your prize will be right out”, I asked her “is Sean bringing it out?” She said “No.” I said “Oh god, it’s —– isn’t it?!” and she said “yes, I think so.” Right, like she didn’t know. Hah! I prepared for the “Why don’t you let someone else win for a change?” speech, even though CFOX was NOT his station and I hadn’t won from either in ages. I sat in the lobby to wait, and took out my phone so I could record the conversation just in case. I’ve been caught off guard before but this time I wanted proof! The last time I saw him he pretended not to remember my name (huh?!) but this time he was sweet as pie! That just makes me suspicious… I have a feeling he won’t be nearly as cool when I win that $500 Visa card with Willy’s Christmas Cash! LOL!

It was such an unexpectedly gorgeous day that I took the opportunity to paint our fence for the season. Then hubby drilled some holes and we put up our Xmas tree and lights. We’re just going to leave them on all month, so give a honk if you see these along Marine Drive. Check it out:


There’s no point putting up lights on our house because nobody can see the house from the road anyway. We’ll be putting up a real Xmas tree on Saturday – right after we go buy it at Ikea in Richmond and say hi to Matty B who will be there broadcasting! Hiiiiiiiiiiiii Mattyyyyyyyyy!!! We’ll bring you some gingerbread cookies. ­čśÇ
