Sunday Feb 9
Did I tell you I won invites to the Peak Lounge to see Beaches?? I DID! So we were there on Friday when The Beaches played two songs for us, answered some fan questions, and took pictures with dozens of people. They are SO CUTE and personable, and great artists too. I’ll bet their show at The Commodore rocked. Here’s a picture of us. WTF am I even doing?! And who’s that dishevelled guy beside me?! Hubby decided to try growing out his hair and beard for a change. I gave him a month. We’re calling it FebruHAIRY. LOL!
Friday was a great day because along with seeing The Beaches live, I also got a call for a job interview. WOOT! I go in on Wednesday and I’m sooooo excited. If I get the job it will be full time Monday through Friday, 8:30-4:30 all through March and April. You know what that means – I will be out of commission for the entirety of the ratings race. RATS! The only times I’ll have a chance to play is at 7 or 8am and at 5pm. At least I’ll have some chances. I am totally jumping the gun here – I need to get that job first!
Meanwhile, I will focus on winning a pair of those Rolling Stones tickets. They’re everywhere! Check the schedule for your chance to score a pair.
Virgin has tickets to Camila Cabello twice each day, and at some point they will have John Legend tickets. It says to listen to Amy’s show to win them, but the Shows page shows Amy as only hosting on Saturdays. It also shows Angelina’s show to be 12pm to 5pm, but the actual schedule shows her from 9 to 2pm and Amy from 2pm to 5pm. I have no idea WTF is going on there, but I’m going to guess those JL tickets will be given away sometime between 2 and 5pm.
Zed will also have John Legend tickets but I’m not sure when yet. Breeze will have them too. And Matty B will have them on his show over at Kiss. I love John Legend so I’ll be trying for those.
JR has tickets to the Boots & Babes Ball happening at The Commodore on Friday. To win, listen for the Boots Song of the day. When you hear it, text BOOT and your name to 604-280-9370 and you could win your way in. Check HERE for the song of the day.
The Peak’s Montage returns! Uggggggh! It’s SO HARD! But goddamnit it sucks me in every time. I’ll give it a few days and if it’s not utterly ridiculously hard, I’ll give it a try.
The Peak is also promoting the Jim Beam Talent Search so if you’re a band or single artist, go submit your entry HERE before February 14th.
And now for some very sad, sad news: Wiarton Willie predicted spring would arrive early but it will not be bringing with it ZFX. *weep* ZFX has been put away for a while which is probably best for our (my) mental health tbh. Instead of ZFX we will see the return of another oldie-but-goodie: Gold Digger! This is the same as Beat the Bank – say stop before the alarm sounds. This takes zero skill, the only challenge being to catch the cue to call and being the “correct” caller. But cash is really nice and this ensures it will be spread around more, which I am a huge fan of. I hate the structure of that last sentence but I’m leaving it in because whatever.
The thought of ZFX was keeping me warm for these past few months but now I’ll have to snuggle up with Zillionaire instead. He’ll be coming around again and I hope he has more of those challenges where we don’t have to leave our desks to take part. Listen for a song, take a picture of a zed, tell a story, sing a song, recite a haiku, solve this riddle, text a guess, etc. Fingers crossed!
Janet Jackson tickets on Zed in the mornings.
Backstreet Boys tickets on QM four times each day!
Also Janet Jackson tickets three times per day. Check the schedule!
If QM has all these tickets, I’ll bet the others have them too – Zed, Kiss, maybe even Virgin, Breeze and Jack. Tune in!
