Things That Happened:

So much ARGH!!!

First, at 10:59am when Emilie said “call me now to play ZFX”, I hit redial (because I had pre-dialled it the minute before) and it started to ring immediately. I kept dialling with my cell phone while I waited for Emilie to answer and tell me I was caller 1 or 2. She never picked up. At the 3 minute mark, I hung up. The guy who played knew the answer – MY answer – and he won $3250! !@#$%! It stings worse than the time the wasp stung the inside of my lip when I took a sip from my Corona!!! Where did my line ring? That’s the second time it’s gone into the ether when I call for ZFX! It hurts so badly because I desperately needed the money – I haven’t had a car since December and I’m losing my effing mind!

Then, ARGH #2: JR decided to balance the scales by giving away another $1000, this time to a woman. SMH. They did it at 7:40am or so. Only women were allowed to call in, and it didn’t take long before someone spotted JR Joe on 200th Street in Langley. I’m not loving this “Random 1K Giveaway” bs. Not. Lovin’it.

ARGH #3 was also supplied by JR: their hosts got read the Riot Act and must now be suuuuuper picky about answers. That’s fine and all, but when the answer is “young blackbird” and the caller says “blackbird”, then the dj says “no, the answer is LITTLE blackbird”, people start getting crazy. One dictionary says “blackbird”, another says “diminutive of merle” (meaning “small form of blackbird”), yet another says “young blackbird.” It’s pretty hard to say with any certainty what the correct answer is, so it’s no surprise nobody’s gotten it right. Besides which, who in their right effing mind knows that a merlot is a “diminutive blackbird?” Nobody knows that because even the dictionaries aren’t sure! I wish JR would make all of the questions as easy as “what is the 10th letter of the alphabet?” because then we *might* get a winner every other day…

QMFM’s biggest jackpot was at the 4pm play, which is traditionally the smallest jackpot. Only one person hit the alarm, but others tapped out early, with $900 being the most won. I could use $900… hell, I could use $90! LOL!

Ed Sheeran is coming! SQUEEEEEEEE!! Zed had tickets all day, and I believe Kiss will have them today and tomorrow. I’ll keep an eye out for others too.
