Monday April 13
I’m sorry this is late – I had a stupid busy weekend and was too exhausted (read: drunk) to write anything last night. Even with all this extra time on our hands, there still aren’t enough hours in the day! Anyway, I’m back from work and ready to throw together a schedule.
Today’s schedule is brought to you by the letter B: it BLOWS!
Even the lame things we had last week are gone and we’re left with Beat Your Bills. This is a tragedy! Rock 101 even stopped giving money for the Grand IQ Test, which most of the time gave away $100 or $250, and rarely $500, and often nothing. Now they are awarding winners a song request. Seriously. A song. But this is a big prize because Willy notoriously does NOT take requests! So in a funny way, it’s still a win.
Did you watch the Jack FM Facebook Live last Tuesday? I watched it after work. It was awkwardly cringey but still somehow endearing. Jeff walked into a pole and may have given himself a concussion, and they gave viewers a tour of the entire Rogers offices. Huh.
I didn’t do a Facebook Live Friday night because I got home late and was beyond exhausted. I had to spend the past two weekends packing up and moving my friend’s house because they are stuck in Florida and they had to move out of their house here. Long story but suffice it to say I have seen and touched every single thing they own. I sold whatever furniture I could, brought the food to my house, collected valuables and bought a safe to put them in, and brought all the extra stuff (the moving company wouldn’t take medicines, plants or anything liquid) to my house. I packed suitcases and bins and cleaned out the garage and holy crap they had a lot of stuff! It was a full five days of back-breaking work and Saturday I did the last of it. Now my lower back is cricked and I have a hard time standing up after sitting for a while. Ah, good times.
Long story longer, having a sauna for my aching muscles took priority over a Facebook Live. But I’m ready to try Zoom so I’m going to figure that out this week and try that on Friday. If you’re up for trying it with me, let me know. Let’s see how it will work for playing What The Hell IS That?!
I was surprised to hear Willy et al on the air this morning. I didn’t check any other stations to see who was there but I did catch the 8:10 Beat Your Bills name (Katrina Leiper). I can never listen for the 11:10 name but can catch the 8:10 or 3:10 when I remember. Were Clay and Karen in today? I hate that I can’t listen back to the show on Streamon anymore! BOO!
Aside from Beat Your Bills, there’s still a chance to get your name in for the grand prize on The Breeze. Once those two are over, we’ll be left with nothing. Nada. Zippo. But you could win a $100 food delivery gift card from Kid Carson if you go enter HERE.
Even though this is the time of year when things usually slow down, it’s not looking like we’ll be revving back to life anytime soon. Rumour has it there won’t be any gatherings allowed until fall of 2021. For us that means no concert or festival tickets. I’m not sure if that also includes school and restaurants but I can’t wrap my head around that right now.
That is to say, there may not be any reason to write a schedule for a while. If you don’t receive a newsletter, I probably didn’t write a new schedule. We’ll see how the next year plays out.
Now excuse me, I have to go buy half price chocolate at Shoppers. YES, it’s essential!!!! Mental health essentials…
