#13 - Lucky Thirteen

Greetings from your friends of Zee and Zed infamy.

It's a full moon on Friday the 13th, Mark Messier's #11 sweater is retired in New York, Mostly Trivial, Buckeye Drive Time, King Bonk's Campfire Cast, The Redboy Podcast, "4 Years and 1 Hair Later" revisited, Lick's, "Ode to Jenny", "Americanadian Differences - National Anthems", mother's groups, Karen needs a friend, I'm anti-social towards my family, and so much more.

Music by Zee and Zed and Lou Barlow.



  • Wow, that song was so touching! Jenny spent the whole night crying tears of joy and acceptance. I downed a whole bottle of peach schnapps. What a breakthrough!! If Donahue had moments like this, Oprah would be doing the tv news instead of rolling in a bed made of cash. I think the Ross and Karen show is needed.

  • Karen, I'll be Member No. 2 of your club for moms who love their kids (but not neurotically) and talk about more interesting things than sink mats. Oh, but I don't have kids (yet)--can I still join?

    When I was married before, it was to a guy in the Navy. I remember as a 19-year-old honorary wife (read: fiancee), being so excited to make friends with the other young wives, then being heartbroken when we had entire conversations about making mashed potatoes with less fat. Later, at age 25, I attended a bachelorette party for a pal. The bride and I (the only two who weren't breastfeeding or driving that night) downed margaritas while the other women sighed enviously... "What I wouldn't give for a cocktail... it's so tempting to have just one, then do a pump-and-dump!" (Pump-and-dump, for the uninitiated, is a breastfeeding term. Dump applies to pouring milk down the sink. I guess you can figure out pump.)

    Eventually I found some good friends. We would watch I Love Lucy reruns late at night (our husbands were out to sea and we were unemployed) and drink $8 champagne and sigh over the pure romance of Wuthering Heights...

    So. Now, here I am; I've lived in this city for a year, and I have no really close female friends, not including Joe's kids (or ex-wife. haha :-)) Karen, it's hard for women like us, because we are rare jewels in a long, long, gravel driveway. The good thing about having few friends is that it's brought me closer to my family--the people who are with me through anything. On the other hand, sometimes I'd like to go have a lemon drop with another chick. (Or a bottle of peach schnapps, if it's been a really rough day!)

    Good luck in your quest. When you finally find the one, or two, or three people who really *get* you, it will be totally worth it.

  • If I dress up in a skirt, can I join?

  • Can i join too?! i have no plans to have kids, but still...sounds like a pretty cool group ;)

    I have trouble making/keeping up with friends as my ill-health means I can't go out much & most of my friends moved away after university...sigh.

    Does the expression "Billy No-Mates" exist in north america? xx

  • Hey Diane, perhaps Lisa and I should plan a trip to the UK and ambush you. Sounds like a good idea to me. We could stay in and cook, have a few drinks and a jolly good time!

    I have not heard the expression "Billy No-Mates", but the meaning comes in loud and clear ;).

  • oh that sounds like a plan! :)

    I think our club has a name... ;) xx

  • ...and munch on Kinder-Eggs!

    Sounds fab! What about Aaron? Can guys in skirts join? (Oh geez, that probably just gave Joe an idea...)

    By Anonymous Lisa, at 10:58 AM  

  • oh of course Kinder Eggs! I'm looking forward...Aaron can come if he puts the kinder toys together for us :) xx

  • Aaron can come if he wears babydolls, and lets us do his hair, make-ep and nails.


    By Blogger Zee And Zed, at 11:04 AM  

  • Oh, maaaan. Now *I* have to come up with a new act.

    By Blogger jtl, at 5:51 PM  

  • I have always wanted to go to the UK!!

    I'm in if you'll have me?

    Betty at the Oka Zoo

  • of course Betty! But you first have to confirm your no mates situation :)

    yes, Aaron's nails are begging for a makeover if you ask me ;)

    By Blogger diane s, at 7:24 AM  

  • Betty's in. This is shaping into a good group. Now we need to find a sponsor to underwrite our trip to the UK.

    Virgin Airlines? Senseo? Acuvue?


    By Blogger Zee And Zed, at 9:44 AM  

  • You're missing the obvious sponsor, Karen: Ernest & Julio Gallo, makers of Wine-in-a-Box!

  • Loved the song, especially your use of the word "tummy". Which, I don't think, you hear very often in modern music. Can you write a song about me? For Groundhog Day maybe?
