Wednesday Sept 21st

Posted on Sep 21, 2016

Stuff that happened:

On Tuesday morning Ruby gave a “hint” to the ZFX. The only thing she said is that one of the guesses so far had been reeeeeeally close to the answer, and you may have not guessed it because you thought it had already been guessed. When the contest first started, one of my husband’s first guesses was “automatic garage door opener, the electronic mechanism that operates it and pulls the door open.” I don’t know why we didn’t stick with that guess – I suppose we thought since “garage door” was already guessed, it was probably wrong. So when Ruby gave her hint, I decided to try to get through and that would be my guess: “electric garage door opener opening a garage door”. I did NOT get through, not even a ring. But lucky Amy in Coombs got through, and she had the same guess. And it was RIGHT! She giggled charmingly when she found out she’d won $16,000. Giggled. Charmingly. Humph. LOL!

The new ZFX might be easier, though I’ve only come up with one guess so far. But I may have some time to come up with a few more today, so check the ZFX #2 post (link below) if you need a guess.

JRFM is giving away boatloads of cash, but that Jewel is quite MOOdy. If you listen to the entire play live, it can take a looooooong time to get to the end. I loved it when at 2pm Docc just said “you stopped at $800. After that the pail was going to be tipped over twice and she would’ve gone up to $1800.” Short and sweet, just the way I like it! He didn’t let it drag out and I appreciate that – I’ve got shit to do!

However, what I do NOT appreciate is that for SOME reason, JR has decided that we can’t listen back to the plays. You can listen back to pretty much everything that has aired in the past week at, which is also where you can stream the station. But the powers-that-be have decided that we canNOT hear what Jewel did during her last visit. I’m not sure why they would decide to bleep it out – it’s not especially useful information (to anyone but me) and the DJ would probably tell anyone who asked what had happened that day. I can’t imagine that they would want to keep the information from little old me, so it must be YOU! They want to keep YOU in the dark. I’d be pissed if I were you… LOL!

CKNW holds steady at “5 correct, in the right spot.” I tried to get through for the 12pm play but no luck. I’ll try again today if I’m home. I have a list of 7 random guesses – no point guessing the ones we already know!! I really like this game, it’s fun to listen to Drex and Lynda. Poor Lynda has to try Vegemite tomorrow. Ick. I might tune in for that just to hear her gag. LOL!
