Friday June 24th

Posted on Jun 24, 2016

The Personal Bit:

Did I mention that our family will have a tent at Greek Days on Broadway this year?? It’s coming up this Sunday from 11am to 9pm, between Blenheim and MacDonald on Broadway in Kitsilano. Our tent will be near the MacDonald Street entrance, on the south side. We will have balloons and an Angry Birds toss with a freezie prize for kids, and our own kids will be running it, so come by and say HELLO!!

Did I also tell you that I am having a pop-up restaurant in September? Check out the website at and if you want to come check it out on September 17th, I’d be happy to serve you. 😀

Things that happened:

Revolution played! It happened at 11:30am on Thursday. Did you hear it?? At 11am I heard the commercial and usually I would tune out, but for some reason I was listening this time. The commercial said “it’ll play in about 30 minutes!” HUH!

And so it did. I dialled, got a busy signal. Dialled again. Busy. Dialled again. Busy. Dialled again. RINGING!!! EEEEEK! The timing seemed perfect – if he’d just answered 5 other lines, mine should be the 10th line. My brain raced – what would I say to He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named if he came on the line like last time?!?! Alas, there was no need to panic – it kept ringing until I heard lucky Debbie is going to Cuba!!!! SQUEEEEEEE!!! That is so awesome!

Amy Shumer’s show was just announced!!! Hopefully the stations will get tickets for it and share them with us. It’s on December 2nd at Roger’s Arena. December 2nd is daughter’s 10th birthday, but hey, I’ve been there for AAAAALLLLLL the other birthdays, so… 😀


BT has BC Lions tickets again.

LG will have tickets to Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire. They should also play back-to-back Henleys today.

Listen for the Peak’s Free Ride artist.

While you’re listening for that, go check out my post of online-entry-only contests for this week: HERE.

And it’s Lotto Max Friday, so watch for our Lotto Max ticket on Facebook or Twitter. If you can’t find it (or hate social media!) just email me with “I’m IN!” and I will consider you in on our ticket. You shouldn’t be excluded simply because you’re not social… 😉

Finally, this weekend you could win passes to Playland on Virgin. Listen from noon to 10pm on Saturday and Sunday.
