AAAaaaahhhh!!! I'm over here jumping for joy, screaming my head off & my daughter is yelling, "YAY! MOMMY WON!!!!!"
You may be asking yourself, What is this retarded thread all about?? Or you may have already stopped reading. Hell, I don't care! I just won a day pass to Mount Bachelor!!! I had thought my season was over (due to finances, not snow, it was snowing all frickin day yesterday) so I was beginnning to come to terms with putting her away for the summer and impatiently waiting 6 months to go riding again...
First off, here's the back story: Last Fall, a local radio station gave away TONS of free season passes and day passes to the mountain. I listened for hours, wrote down numerous playlists, burned up my cellphone minutes, racked up some overages even.... (Here's how the contest works, you listen, write down the songs, at the end you call in, caller ten recites the playlist and the pass is theirs.) I must have listened to 10-20 contests, I was caller 1,4,7,8 but never TEN! So whatever... season started, I didn't win... I had to find other means of getting my outrageously priced lift tickets.
This morning, Hubby calls me, "Turn on the radio, RIGHT NOW! They're playing playlist for a pass again!!" This time it's for a day pass and the winner also gets entered in to win a kick-ass mountain bike! They're calling it "Playlist for a Peddle". So I listen, and I write, and I listen some more. I know the drill, I get super stoked, just to find that I'm the most unlucky son-of-a... BUT WAIT, this time it was different. DJ picks up the line, "HELLO, YOU'RE CALLER NUMBER TEN!" aaaaaaaaaaaah! I'm so excited!!
I'm beyond frickin stoked right now, heading up bright and early tomorrow morning!!!
