Mr. E. said...

@ Mr. Red

You're welcome. May as well make insomnia productive! ;-)

Tadpoles is a winner! Of all the great summertime words and that's what they came up with?!

Remember Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey on SNL? Here's what Jack remembered about tadpoles; click here.

11am bonus code: Not announced?

Connie said...

I didn't hear the 11 am either.

angel said...

@Mr. E.

I did not hear a bonus code during the 11am hour either!

Mr. E. said...

Good afternoon Angel & Connie :-)

Yeah, I listened for the full hour so I don't believe I missed it either. Hopefully, it's one of the guessed bonus codes as there should be only 3 unknown ones at this point.

critic said...

The bonus code for the last hour was only available to Friends of the Psychic Network. Many psychics died attempting to get the code as it is very dangerous to link ones mind with someone who is brain dead. Consequently they are not willing to share their hard earned knowledge with us. :)

Mr. E. said...

@ Critic, thanks for the laugh! :-)

WoW! My first baggage delivery to a celebrity/politician - just made a delivery to a Mr. Brodbent, get there to find out it's THEE Mr. Ed Brodbent, former leader of the NDP :-)

Mr. Red said...

CORRECTION: First delivery to a celebrity/politition who personally accepted and/or signed for the delivery....not some aid/secretary/mailroom clerk

Mr. E. said...

It wasn't him, Mr. Red. The former NDP politician spells his name with an "a", Broadbent, ;-)

Mr. Red said...

@ Mr. E. - It was him, I recognized him, I screw up in the spelling of his name. Another case of fat, stubby fingers vs a teeeeny weeeny Crackberry keyboard.

Mr. E. said...

@ Mr. Red, I believed you; I knew you were just spelling phonetically again! ;-)

@Mr. E.- the real reason she said it twice was because she couldn't even understand what she said the first time!

5pm bonus code: Motorcoach

Mr. E. said...

Jenny suggested VIP members should team up to ensure they get all the bonus codes. What do you guys and gals think about that?! ;-)

angel said...

@Mr. E.

I've said it before, they criticize the blogs for code sharing and yet they've been telling for years to share codes with friends!!!

Connie said...

@ Mr. E
We are almost already doing that. The only thing missing is dividing up hours. Does anyone want to divide up the hours?

Mr. E. said...

@ Angel, you're quite right! "Officially" Rogers is opposed to it in their rules but they DJs aren't!

@ Connie, my smiley was winking at everyone here when I wrote that!

However, it would make sense to try to coordinate shifts to avoid duplicate efforts but it might be difficult to pull off. I know that one member records at least part of the day's broadcasts so if we knew we had this backup plan in place, we could probably volunteer for loosely defined shifts without too much problem.

No, in all the years I've been listening to the winning weekends I've never seen that happen before, giving out 2 bonus codes at one time!

7pm Bonus Codes: Tent Lake

Mr. Red said...

LMFAO! If you log onto Google today, it is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pacman with an actual working game, including sound effects, within the masthead. Just use your mouse to play by placing your curser where you wanna go. :-)

Mr. E. said...

PacMan was a great game at the time! Back in the early 80s, when mall arcades were the big thing, I won a couple of little stuffed PacMans for getting the high scores during a contest (still have them, and even little Mexican sombreros that came with tequila from Mexico but fit them quite well). Playing the game with a mouse sucks though (at least on my computer)!

Mr. E. said...

8pm: Sun

Mr. Red said...

8pm Bonus Code: Sun

Mr. E. said...

@ Angel, how two bonus codes got announced at the same time will, I believe, always have to remain a mystery.

Still one unknown bonus code but at least we know it will be announced tonight!

Mr. E. said...

Yikes, I need to proofread better or Mr. Red will be justified to turn the tables on me regarding some of my minor corrections!

Corrected:

@ Angel, you're quite right! "Officially" Rogers is opposed to it in their (probably should have been its) rules but their (or, again, probably more grammatically correct and consistent, its) DJs aren't!

Brits are somewhat at odds with Canadian and American practice in these regards which is always a pleasant source of conflict when dealing with some of my international colleagues.

Mr. Red said...

9pm Bonus Code: Umbrella

Mr. E. said...

Is there some reason I keep getting automatically logged out every time I want to post? That hasn't happened before.

Mr. Red said...

My theory on the extra bonus code given out this evening is....management realized the "glitch" that happened this morning with the 11am code and obviously John is broadcasting live since he talked about this afternoon's thundershowers so the extra code he gave out is actually the 11am code.

Mr. E. said...

@ Mr. Red, yes he was "live".

Mr. E. said...

P.S. I noticed the same clues that you did!

Mr. E. said...

@ All readers

According to the radio ads, the motorcoach will be loaded with KISS VIPs heading down to Wham Bam. Before I dig deeper elsewhere, does anybody here know where all these VIPs are coming from? It would be a nice for a change if this Winning Weekend (or any big contest, for that matter) allowed multiple winners for a change (even if the prizes were diminished in value for "lesser" winners).

This is something I've suggested whenever surveys are put out but somebody usually posts the bonus code very quickly, which no doubt undermines such suggestions with a lot of automatic "don't care" votes. A lot of members visiting these blogs probably just grab the survey bonus code and run, instead of spending a few minutes to improve membership benefits with specific comments via the survey.

Think about the above comments the next time you see a survey in your inbox. Your comments may reward yourself in the long run better than the sporadic points will.

10pm Bonus Code: Nap

10pm: Nap

That's the last unknown!

Mr. E. said...

Wow! My computer is retarded! It sat in suspension for over 30 seconds, letting Mr. Red handily outdraw me in the process!

I guess that leaves Sunglasses as the final word for today.

Mr. E. said...

@ Mr. Red, thanks for clearing the remnant debris from the blog.
