Wednesday Sept 14th

Posted on Sep 14, 2016

Stuff that happened:

Welp! Somebody guessed my guess. And it was wrong. I’m back into full-blown ZFX Panic

But ONE thing cheered me up: JEWEL!!! I got to milk those generous teats, and that beautiful bovine gave me $750! What a wonderful birthday present!!! It was the 7pm play, and when the cue to call happened I hit redial 7 times on my cell phone before it rang. SEVEN TIMES! And my landline didn’t get a single ring. Jaxon is so charming, it was a delight chatting with him. He said it would take 5-6 days to get the cheque – just in time to pay my phone bill before I get cut off!!! WHEW! (Literally. My cell phone bill is $729. I shit you not.)

Another thing JRFM happened: I stopped by their office for something else, so while I was there I asked about the party invite. They said that their emails have bounced back for the past 2 years! WHAAAAAT?! Has it been TWO YEARS since I got a JRFM email and I didn’t even notice?! Sheesh! It’s possible though. They told me that of the thousands of people that entered, the invitation bounced back from 80 of them! So 80 people (now 79, because I fixed it) will not have an invitation to the party. EIGHTY!! So if YOU entered words for that contest, make sure you show up at the party. All the information is on the page HERE. They do have your submissions, so you just have to check in. They will give you tickets, like for a 50/50 draw, and those will be your entries. If you entered every single word, you will get 281 raffle tickets. Good luck fitting those in your wallet…

Even though I’ve already played The Cash Cow, I could still show up and win the truck. They are separate contests and the 30 day rule doesn’t apply, apparently. But the odds of winning the truck are astronomical, and I have a shit-ton of cooking to do before the party on Saturday, so I’m probably not going to make it. If you want to be my proxy, I’d sure appreciate it!

And if you’re free on Saturday, I’d love to feed you. Please stop by my pop-up restaurant if you have time – the link is HERE.

CKNW’s Mystery Talkers – there were some new developments on Tuesday. A surprise THIRD name was correct in the 8am play, and another FOURTH name was correct in the 5pm play! I missed the 12pm play but I hear they were repeat guesses. So… it’s getting closer! It may get solved sooner than I expected. But it’ll still take a few more plays to figure out which the 3rd and 4th names are – I am thinking maybe Michelle Obama, Hugh Jackman, or John Oliver. Maybe Gord Downie? Bernie Sanders?? I actually have no idea… LOL!


LG had Brian Wilson tickets in the morning. They are also starting a new contest, according to a tweet they posted on Monday. They will be sending one listener down to see the Rolling Stones in Vegas! VEGAS!!!! I LOVE VEGAS!!! And I love the Stones. I sent my husband to see the Stones when they were in Vancouver in November of 2006. I was 8 months pregnant so I couldn’t go, but I really wanted my husband to see them in case that was their last tour. Hah! Little did I know… So now I would love the chance to see them myself – it’s MY turn – which means I will definitely be trying to qualify for this trip. They will be in Vegas on October 19th and 22nd – not only do I love Vegas and the Stones, I’m free to travel those dates! WOOT!!! As long as I don’t get chosen for jury duty on Sept 22nd, that is… *gleep*


The overview of this week’s major contests is HERE, in case you’ve just joined us and don’t know how the contests work. (The blurb about the TSN contests is in Monday’s schedule.)

Some stations hit the campuses last week, but only Virgin will be doing it again this week. Today the Virgin crew will be at Langara from 11 – 2. They will have coupons for food, smoothies, and yoga. You can also enter to win $2000.
