Sunday March 1st
Remember last week when I said I needed to win because starting Monday I will be at work and unable to play? Well the stars aligned and I got myself a whopping $972 on Gold Digger! WOOOOOHOOOOO!!! I got play with Sutto and Vanessa (my afternoon favourites) and yelled STOP one amount from the kaboom. It was a near-perfect play. But it’s nerve wracking to play and despite my BS bravado (yeah, I’d go BIG!) I chickened out. Luckily.
On the other hand, if I had hit the kaboom, I could’ve played again (if I were the right caller.) This is not the case with Beat The Bank – if you hit the buzzer, you win $100 to Kobe Steakhouse and you’re out of the running for 30 days for any Bell games. If you play BTB, you aren’t eligible for the $1000 on Thursday from Virgin. Not that you’ll ever get through – I tried every hour from 6am to 5pm on Thursday and only got through once.But I was rewarded with a Gold Digger win so…
I must admit, as much as I love ZFX I’m super grateful for a Gold Digger season. My GD play was at 5pm – did you hear it? I can never play or listen at 3pm because I’m always picking up our youngest from school at 3. And starting Monday, I’ll be at work until 4:30 so can’t even listen to the radio all day! So keep me posted, let me know if I miss anything.
You know what I WON’T be missing? That Peak Montage! It seems they’ve made it a titch easier this time, with a hair’s longer clip (seemingly) and actual words too. However, the text-in part makes us leery of playing – what if you can only get called back ONCE and you only got 1/3? Why bother even trying? We’re all just waiting for someone else to take a shot at it, get us to 2/3 so we can just figure out the last one. But then nobody texts in because everyone’s thinking the same thing – let someone else take their one shot in the dark.
If it were a call-in, I would call in all the time and just throw out song names (strategically, of course) to help the game along. I’ve taken guesses before and gotten 1/3 and helped the next person. But as a text-in? I will only text in if I have a good guess for the missing song. Otherwise, I’m not going to waste my time. I’ll bet they only get a handful of texters when there aren’t any songs identified. If any, that is. It’s possible they just call their friends and tell them to play because nobody texted in – I recently saw a tweet from a radio host which read, “shout out to all family and friends who have played “random caller” on air!” LOL!
TSN continues to take in qualifiers for that trip to LA. Listen for the code word and text it to 10-40-40.
Rock 101 gives away a trip to London on Monday, then launches into the next trip. This will be to a European destination from Sunday, May 24th to Friday the 29th. It’s a trip worth $4600, including airfare, 4 nights’ hotel, and lower bowl concert tickets. I think you’ll be seeing Paul McCartney in Paris, but I could be wrong. Aaaah, but I doubt it. Besides “all the time”, how often am I wrong?? Actually, it could be Queen and Adam Lambert in Belgium, come to think of it… Well, whatever it is, good luck with it!
CFOX… names… blah, blah, blah.
Cash Cow. Humph. Text, text, text. *crickets* Blah. At least Clay and Karen are back this week – yahoo! And this week they have those Playdome passes I was coveting last week so that will be my focus every morning!
The Breeze’s Song of the Day is actually Artist of the Day. You can listen at 8am every morning to find out who the artist of the day is, or you can simply check their website HERE if you missed it. When you hear a song by that artist, text your name to 604-280-1043. Maybe you’ll win something fun!
And now for a funny story: our friends recently moved across the pond and left us with a bunch of stuff, including four cartons of chicken broth. I’ve had them in the cupboard for a month so this week I decided to use one of them to make quinoa – it’s much tastier than just using water. I checked the best before date: 2018. *shrug* I opened it anyway. It was already open! The little aluminum tab was pushed in and I could see the liquid. Ffs. I poured it down the drain. I took the next carton: best before 2018. *shrug* It too had already been opened! I put it upside down next to its friend in the sink. I grabbed the next carton: best before 2019. Well that’s probably okay, I thought. I twisted it open to find it too had already been opened. Down the drain it went. The final carton had a 2020 expiry date – yes! I twisted it open and was flabbergasted to find it too was open. I laughed as I poured it down the drain. Later that day I was telling my husband about my broth fiasco and he said, “you know they automatically open themselves, don’t you?” I was stunned. WHAT?! He told me they have some mechanism which automatically opens the seal as you twist open the cap. BAAAHAHAHAHA! I had NO IDEA! We had a good laugh about that one as we ate our tasteless quinoa…
