Music and Coffee

On the first day of Tim Horton’s Roll Up the Rim To Win contest, I won! Not only did I win, but I won twice!  Last year was a pretty lean year for the Tim Horton’s wins around my house. I started to think that the contest was being run by the same tightwads that run the Lotto 6/49. It is all luck of course, but for some reason, my luck was on vacation last year. Perhaps it was concentrating on health for my family and keeping a positive mental attitude. I’m good with that.

So, let’s get back to day one. I won a free coffee when I rolled the rim at the store, and when I played the online roulette game I won three songs. Yea me!!! It feels good to be on top of the world. Sure, it’s a somewhat smallish world, but I’m the one on top. The free coffee rests comfortably in my wallet just waiting for the perfect moment to be used. That perfect moment will probably be when I am out of cash and it’s my turn to buy coffee, or perhaps I’ll be driving past one day and just pull in for a taste of free coffee. One thing is sure, I am going to enjoy not paying, and if the planets line up properly, there is a very good chance that I might win a free coffee with a free coffee. How cool would that be? I’ll let you know just how things play out.
The other thing that I won was three songs from…ahhhh…well, now that I have downloaded my choices I can’t seem to find what online music store they were from. You would think that they would want their name somewhere on the contest page. Oh well. When I was looking for the name I clicked on a song randomly and it was by a band called The Lonely Island and it was called “Jizz In My Pants”. Oh, and what a lovely little ballad that was.

Don't waste a second listening to this shit!

I checked out the top downloads figuring they would be the best songs, but not all of them were up to the standards of “Jizz In My Pants”, so I went to the top 100 figuring I should have no problem picking out three songs. Of the 100 songs, I probably recognized 15 and of the 15 there were eight that I didn’t like, and four that I hated. Hey, problem solved and I didn’t even have to really make a decision.

The three songs were “When You Say Nothing at All” by Alison Krauss which is such a lovely little tune of love and trust, girl loves boy. Sweet! The next one I picked was “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift. It has a catchy tune and by having it on my play list it looks like I have an eclectic taste in music. Plus, I am secretly a lover of this kind of bubble gum sound. The third song was “I Got a Feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas. I’ve heard of them before and the sample wasn’t terrible. It wasn’t not terrible either. I will admit that none of the songs could hold a candle to “Jizz in my Pants”, but not all songs can be instant classics.

This is my year! The horoscope says so and judging by my performance at Tim’s no one can convince me otherwise. Good luck to the rest of you; may your life be filled with free music and coffee.
