Tuesday Mar 1st
The personal bit:
An old friend messaged me to tell me her father died yesterday. I am so sad for her – losing a parent must be one of the hardest things to deal with (I’m not there yet!) The only memory I have of him is the time I was asleep in her bedroom and he came in and tried to open my pajama top. He stopped when someone came looking for him. I was 13. He was kind of an asshole. I don’t think I ever told her about it, and now’s probably not the time. In fact, never would probably be better, yeah?
New this week:
QMFM’s Beat the Bank started off with a bang! The banker was sure generous on Monday. I got through once but wasn’t the right caller. I’ll keep trying!
Jack started the Name Those Tunes game – it’s SO fun to listen to! I know most of the songs, but coming up with the exact title while under pressure would have me rattled! The nice thing is that it’s worth listening to the entire thing – they may recycle the songs at some point. Take notes!! (Sorry, I can’t keep track of those too, I’m stretched to the limit!)
Jack’s Win at Work starts today! On a whim I checked the Win At Work calendar yesterday and saw a schedule of songs – what a happy surprise! Even though there were songs in the schedule for Monday, the contest apparently starts Tuesday. *shrug* So I went back to get the song names to add them to my schedule (so I remember to pay attention when I hear the song), and it’s GONE!!! Maybe it’s a glitch, or maybe they’ve decided that they don’t want us to have a hint. GAH!! I will check every day to see if they put it back up – I sure hope so, because I will definitely miss the name if I don’t know which song it comes after! I totally zone out and just sing along, or I’ll leave the room or make a phone call… I’m easily distracted. But I will do my best to listen for the names!!! If I haven’t got you on my list of “people to call if I hear their name”, shoot me an email and I’ll add you: firstname.lastname@example.org. And go enter the contest HERE – maybe you’ll hear your name and win $150 or $250 or $500 or $5000! But remember – you have to call back within 30 minutes to win.
Kiss Radio did NOT play two Bieber songs back-to-back. Maybe today. But probably not.
ZFX: some great guesses have been made! Damn, that sound is so familiar but I just can’t place it. I have a front-runner guess (the last one on my list in the ZFX post) but I’m still waffling…
Rock 101: one person took the cash on Monday, everyone else took the draw. I’d stay in the draw too, unless the bribe was over $600. That’s MY tipping point. What’s yours??
CFOX already has 3 people in the draw! Wow! Even though they had 2 envelopes with $1000 yesterday, I doubt that’s a trend. We’ll see…
