The last time I called into a radio show to try and win anything, hypercolor t-shirts and wearing overalls with one strap undone meant you were straight up stylin'. I can't tell you how many times I pounded my phone's buttons to try and win those New Kids On The Block tickets. But alas, my tiny little fingers were not nimble enough to win tickets to go see my lovely Donnie bust his sweet hangin' tough moves in those super sexy ripped jeans. I had to settle to listening to my tapes and kissing my giant NKOTB button. I was so emo.
So this morning, when I called into our local radio station to try and win Madonna's new cd and a chance to win a trip to NYC to see her, I knew my luck had changed when the phone rang after my third try.
"Yes, I'm calling for the Madonna contest?"
"Do you know how to play?"
"Yes, name four Madonna songs in four seconds." (pfft! Childs play!)
"Ok, please hold."
Could it be?? Had my luck changed? Were my fingers more nimble at 31 than it was at 13? Apparently it was because before I knew it, I was on the radio and I spouted off four Madonna songs with 3 seconds to spare. I won!!! And on Friday, they'll have the drawing for the big New York City concert! I was way more excited than I should have been, I mean really I'm only winning her new CD, which I already put on pre-order on Amazon, but A. I've never won anything on the radio before (see sad NKOTB story above), and B. I have a damn good chance of winning that trip in NYC! The contest is only a week long and there are three or four winners per day, so the odds of me seeing Madonna in NYC, are awesome.
So here I am blogging because you guys are pretty damn good at sending out the good vibes. So your assignment and mantra for the rest of this week is:
"Ommmm, let Elaine win and see her girlfriend Madonna in NYC, let Elaine win and see her girlfriend Madonna in NYC, Ommmmm."
Come on, say it, sing it, dance to it, master it in three different languages. Feel free to utilize this chant while doing your downward dog pose; because nothing gets the good vibes out there faster than having your ass in the air. Thank you in advance, kiss, kiss, hug, hug and if you hear some random screech echo throughout the world on Friday, that means I won. :)
