Shop, Pop, and Drop

Virgin Radio is currently hosting a contest called "Pop Shop and Drop" where the winner will be flown to see a concert, given $5000 cash to spend and then spend the rest the trip in another location. Last week was to go Pop with Rihanna in London, Shop in Paris and Drop in Barcelona, Spain. I had given up on calling because I never seem to be able to get through but on Friday, on the last chance at 5:00pm when I heard the cue to call I thought what the hey, I'll give it a try. The first time I tried it didn't work but I decided to try again and miraculously I GOT THROUGH! It kept ringing and ringing and finally I heard a sort of automated voice which said "If you are calling to enter Pop Shop & Drop please press 1". So I did. Then the voice said "If you like Rihanna, please yell yes". I paused because I was still in the office at work...So I quietly said yes. But the voice repeated her instructions! So I said yes a little louder and by this time I was heading towards the door. Again the voice repeated the instructions. Now I was getting annoyed at what I thought was the phone so I loudly said yes!. (My co-workers probably think I'm crazy because this isn't the first time I've repeated a word several times loudly into my phone. >_<) This time I hear Tara Jean laughing and then Kiah laughing and saying that Tara Jean sounded very automated.

Hahah I never got through before so I didn't know what to expect. I played right into Tara Jean's hands! But then I was really nervous and didn't know what to say so I sounded so stupid - very monotone and not very excited. Doh! I got my chance on the radio and I blew it! I'm going to have to try again next week hahahha. I really can't believe I got through! I'm on the stand by list for the contest! I'll know next Friday morning if I won or not. I have my fingers crossed! Wish me luck!

Eeee! I can't believe I talked to Tara Jean! And Kiah. So happy.
