The personal bit:

Here’s where I’ll put in my personal blurb. If anything interesting happened, I’ll put it here. Like the time (Sunday afternoon) when I took my 5 year old to see Kung Fu Panda 3 and he fell asleep 20 minutes into it. I asked if he wanted to go home and he mumbled “yes”, so I gathered up our half-eaten snacks and carried him to the car, which was a block away. It was at that moment that the skies decided to open up and unleash the water they’d been retaining all day. The torrential downpour had me drenched by the time I got him into the van. It stopped as soon as we drove away, and as we pulled into the driveway 3 minutes later, my son was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Humph. The moral of the story is this: the movie wasn’t a good enough reason for my 5 year old to stay awake. I’m sure if it had been Peppa Pig he’d have stayed awake till the end!

I will post a link HERE to the molar story. If you have young kids, it may provide some insight (or at least scare the crap out of you!)

I also wrote a post HERE about the small town that I grew up in and their cool annual festival.

Then I wrote a post HERE about a scene from The Young and The Restless which pissed me off so much that I sent it to CBS! As if they’d read it. LOL!

And HERE is the log of my on-going (albeit one-sided) battle with BP. Don’t read it, it’s dull. I’m just documenting everything in case anyone asks…

New this week:

ZFX: you know the drill. Or the stapler! LOL! I am all googly with excitement!!!

Jack: Name Those Tunes. There will be five music clips. You can name one or name all, but if you get one wrong you lose it all. Apparently. I look forward to hearing it played! ***UPDATE*** The start date is NEXT week!

Rock 101: Cheque or Cherokees. This is not the real name, but I’ve renamed it so as not to step on any toes. You can choose the money or the rides, the green or the gas-guzzlers, the toonies or the twins. But if you go into the draw for the Jeeps, you have to tell them who you would give the second car to – be prepared! I already have someone in mind – a single mom with three young kids who works too hard and I admire the snot outta her!!!

JRFM: Oscar Marathon. Win your way into the JRFM Lounge to watch movies with Clay and Karen. Wear your pjs or at least some loose-fitting pants – there will be lots of snacks! 😉

QMFM announced Beat the Bank starts next Monday! What a *surprise*!! 😉


Peak has the Artist of the Day again this week. When you hear the artist, text the word “WIN” followed by your name to 88000.

CFOX is giving away their 6th trip to Mexico this morning! There are 7 people in the draw. To get your name into next Monday’s draw, tune in at 8:30, 11, 2, and 5. The 9th caller through gets to choose!

More Barbados trips on Virgin this week, there are 12 chances per day to get your name in the draw.

JRFM is probably playing You Can’t Win This! again. My husband is so funny – he calls it the “Beating a Dead Horse Game.” I appreciate the spirit of the game – getting people engaged, having some fun (at their expense, seemingly!) – but it’s okay to admit when something just didn’t work. Gahd, I feel bad saying that, but it was a bit of a contest belly flop. Maybe I’m wrong? What do YOU think of it??
