Sunday Nov 15
Things that happened last week:
Dr. Bonnie put the city in quarantine so Peak put their BC Getaway contest on hold.
Wednesday was a holiday so there were no contests (that I heard!)
Thursday was an outright bust. As in, I didn’t win that $500 Shopper’s card from QMFM. I tried so hard!
I texted in a bunch of Virgin code words and didn’t get a callback. I’m shocked! LOL, jk.
Clay and Karen were away so there was no Secret Word game, but they are back on Tuesday and so is Secret Word!
Breeze switched to Christmas music on Thursday and tbh I was kinda excited about it! It’s been such a shit year, the music brings some joy to my heart. So from now until Dec 10th, listen for the Song of the Day and when you hear it, text 604-280-1043. If they call you back, you win $100 to either a house cleaning service or the spa. I would normally choose the house cleaning but since nobody is going to be seeing the inside of my house until next Christmas, I’d take the spa!
Breeze is also giving away $100 Visa cards if they read your Christmas Moment on air. Go tell them your favourite moment HERE.
QM switched to Christmas music at 4pm on Friday with a whole lotta hoopla about it. In came the Jolly Jingles and out went Beat the Bank! The music brought with it a new game which I already hate: listen for a code word and text it (ffs) to 103535 within 15 minutes. If they call you back, you win $500. If you don’t pick up when they call, you don’t win. If you’re texting, make sure your phone is off Mute (I always forget!)
Zed announced they will be doing another TWO WEEKS of Kid’s Cash. If you already won, keep listening – you can win again! But now you have to listen SEVEN times per day. SEVEN! Like I have fuck all else to do all day. Well, actually, since we’re pretty much in lockdown, I don’t really have anything else to do. But come the 23rd, if lockdown isn’t extended, Imma have places to go and people to see! (Not really, I still don’t want to catch Covid. But I *could* have other things to do… potentially…)
Speaking of doing other things, Sutto and Vanessa were talking about how difficult it will be to get “pictures with Santa” done this year. I had literally JUST been thinking about that, it was really weird. Anyway, I gave it some thought and came up with a plan:
BYOS. Bring Your Own Santa. I set up a nice bench and decorations on the boulevard where a parent can take their kids to sit on Santa’s knee, only “Santa” is their Dad or grandpa or uncle or brother or whoever. Hey, maybe Santa’s their Mom! What do I know?! But whoever is playing Santa shows up before the kid gets there, that way the kid doesn’t know whose knee they are sitting on. Little kids probably wouldn’t even notice, but they would feel comfortable because Santa smells like Daddy. I shelled out $60 today for a nice plush Santa suit and Amazon delivered it tonight, so I can lend out the suit so folks don’t have to go buy one. They do have to buy their own beard though, because it’s not Covid-safe to share that part. However, I am prepared for people to come take their own photos with Santa. I even bought a tripod they can use in case they want to make it a family photo. So if you’re in the hood, stop in and get a photo (with or without Santa!)
