Friday May 13th

Posted on May 13, 2016

The personal bit:

Avoid the southern half of west side AT ALL COSTS!!! Anything from 41st to the Fraser River is a complete zoo (Marine Drive is closed off, pushing all the traffic to 57th, 49th, 41st, and all points in between!) – just don’t even bother. I live in the middle of it all, all 3 sides of my house are a construction zone. There is a thick layer of dust over every surface thanks to the roads in all directions being ripped up for sewer work (and a bike lane?!) I can only imagine what all of our lungs look like after breathing this crap for months on end. Thank god the kids and I are going to miss 6 weeks of it this summer!!!

I’m feeling rather burned out from this last ratings race so I think my brain may already be on vacation…

Things that happened:

Z95.3 played ATM!!! It was 4:25, right as I was bumper-to-bumper in traffic on Granville Street! I was able to pull over about half way through Maroon 5, and dialled for the full song afterwards. No luck. If I’d been home using my landline, I might’ve had a shot. But I still had to try. If traffic on the west side was not a complete shit-show, I would’ve made it home in time! AUGH!!

I realized that the Adele concert is happening while we are in Finland, so I will be trying my best to win those Hedley tickets today!!! It’s my last shot! There are 6 times that I can try, so nobody text me today!!! 😀

I’m leaving this in from the other day: a post of all the online-entry contests happening this week is HERE.


CTV has trips to Predator Ridge three times each morning. It’s a call-in contest, so watch for the cue to call at 6:20, 7:20, and 8:20. Caller 9 wins. I don’t know the number but I’m sure they’ll tell you.

You can also win this Predator Ridge trip on TSN every hour today and tomorrow. That’s every hour for all three shows – 6am to 7pm!

Bro Jake also has Steven Tyler tickets during his show. So do Kiah and Tara Jean, QMFM, and also CFOX.

And it’s FRIDAY! That means a Lotto Max ticket will be appearing on the Facebook page sometime before noon. The timing of course is dependent on the distractions of the day – children, puppies, random interruptions, a chatty hubby, etc. Maybe being Friday the 13th will be lucky for us this time…
