Tuesday Aug 2nd

Posted on Aug 1, 2016

My baby turns 6 today!!! WOOT!! We will be celebrating here in Finland with a cake lovingly made by Grandma. Nom nom.

Things that happened:

Last week I sent an e-mail to Willy with a YouTube link. It was a link to a video of a Finnish band doing a “classic cover”, and I sent to him because I knew he would like it. He did! For the first time ever, he emailed me back. He said “Very cool!!!” Yep, THREE exclamation marks!!! *blush*

I also sent a hello to MattyB on the Zed App (you should totally get that!!) and he replied “Have a good weekend” IN FINNISH!!! I was SO impressed!! Either he already knew it or he has a Finnish friend or he googled it. Either way, he put some effort into it. So sweet!

You Can’t Win This So Don’t Bother is up to $1280. The questions are as follows:

  1. It would take 1.2 million before you were done. (mosquito bites to be drained of blood)
  2. You get 36 out of one. (potato chips from one potato)
  3. It’s famous, people think it cane from California but it’s from here. (California Roll)
  4. The first one was a tent. (Vancouver City Hall)
  5. It has an awful reputation but it’s only 0.7% disgusting. (?)

I can’t help you with the last one. I couldn’t even guess the first 4, so I’ve got nothing for #5. The garbage dump? Eating food off the floor? Eating boogers?? I dunno…

New This Week:

The new Z95.3 game starts today!!! I listened to the practice song on the site and got $0. Yup! I suck at this game. But YOU might have some luck, so give it a try HERE, then call in at 8, 11, 2 and 5 and try your luck. There’s no penalty for being wrong!! 😉

JRFM is giving away Gloria! Yoiks! Gloria the Ram truck will be given away on September 15th at a parking lot party. A winner will be drawn from all of the qualifiers. How do you qualify, you ask? Well, let me tell you! You listen for the “Ram Truck Word” each day (even weekends!) at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7. Log into your Online Insider account and enter the words HERE. The more words you enter, the more entries you get into the raffle. You could win even if you only entered ONE word! But you have to be present at the draw to win, so only enter if you’re available to attend the party on Sept 15th. It doesn’t say which parking lot it will be at, so it could be anywhere between North Van and Langley. Hope you have a car to get there, and bring a friend in case you win! Gloria is a 2013 Ram 1500 with 78,000 kms on her – she’s got a lot of miles left on her! Just like me! 😉

As I write this it’s Monday, which is a holiday in BC, but they started giving out the words today. The first word for today is CLUTCH, but the site isn’t available to enter words yet. Huh. I’ll try again later…

Kiss is giving away a vehicle too – a 2016 Honda Civic! Visit a Jiffy Lube or a Wash World location to fill out a ballot, or catch the Kiss crew on location to grab a ballot. Then on September 3rd they will invite 50 finalists to Wash World’s head office where they’ll have a contest for the finalists. One of the finalists will drive home in the car. Let me know if you get in on this – I’d love to hear how it plays out!

LG has a chance for you to win a meet & greet with The Monkees! Enter HERE. Mickey & Peter will be playing at the PNE on September 4th, and you could win entry passes, ride passes, $100 Visa gift card, and an opportunity to touch a Monkee!! (Tip: this is the only time you should ever take anyone up on an offer to let you touch their monkee…)


CFOX might Give It Away this week. The contest goes till Aug 21st which is a Sunday. I predict it will happen Wed or Thurs this week with the afternoon show, then again on Friday Aug 19th with the morning show. That’s a totally random guess, so don’t bank on it. I’d bet my bottom dollar that no matter which day it plays, it’ll be at 8:05, 11:20, 2:15, or 5ish! LOL!

Speaking of which, Rock 101 will be taking qualifiers for the Greatest Concert Ever trip at 8ish, 11:20ish, 2:15ish, and 5ish each day. 😉

There should be a few updates later in the day, so check back when you can.
