#14 - Hate the Sin Not the Sinner

Another Zee and Zed show and it's a doozy (whatever that means).

Our son is a little stinker (though of course we still love him), Karen is on fire about the upcoming Canadian election (Canadians: vote Liberal or NDP if you must), the Golden Globes, Team Canada "wrestling", "Americanadian Differences - Milk", Target Mindy, and listener feedback.

Music by Grandaddy (from "Excerpts from the Diary of Todzilla" release), and Chixdiggit (courtesy of Sup Pop).

Podcasts and sites mentioned include The Poddog Show, My Marilyn, The Big Show, The Oka-Zoo, Diane S., 4th Time Around, and Viva Podcast.



  • THANK YOU for my lovely birthday greetings! How nice...& the first ones so far this year :)

    Hope you get some sleep soon guys...

    love Diane xxx

    ps: I think we need a club logo...

  • Hi Ross and Karen: belated thanks for mentioning my show on your promo show awhile back. Also, this is my shameless bid for a gratuitous mention on an upcoming Zee and Zed. Don't feel you have to write me a song or anything. But I do crave positive reinforcement, whether I deserve it or not.

    If actual show-related comments would help, i offer the following:

    1) Red Robin is new here in Austin Texas. A friend was describing it to me just the other day. Then we passed it while driving in our car. Then I heard your hair story show. Serendipity works! Either that or it's some sort of conspiracy to implant the Red Robin name in my brain.

    2) Thanks for playing one of my favorite Calexico songs.

  • Oh boy do I ever remember those days. When our son was a baby I used to wake up with him in the night. As he got older I'd often have to get up at 3:00 AM to cook a meal for Sage after he'd nursed forever leaving Sage famished. Now, sickness aside, nights are for sleeping and even if Paul isn't feeling like going to sleep we can at least doze on the couch until he's ready since at age 7 he's going to stay (mostly) out of trouble. (to the concerned - he's homeschooled and therefore getting up "for school" can happen as late as it needs to on days we have no activities scheduled). So Karen & Ross, fear not. There is an end to those sorts of nights. In our case I'd say that it was in the 3.5 to 4 year old range.

  • Another episode for the vault, guys. Bravo!

    Not to turn this into a thread about nonsleeping babies, but my daughter Becky (she who creates GarageBand songs for our 'cast) had colic for the first year of her life, which meant she never slept for more than three hours at a time, and woke up screaming. She got over the colic, but she got used to operating on just a couple hours of sleep. and this lasted until she was about four years old. The only thing that put her to sleep was getting in the car with her in her car seat, and driving to Wisconsin. I am not kidding. Her mom got a lot of sleep in those days, though. Things change, though: now, at 13, she'd sleep all day if I let her. :-)

  • And the most suprising thing about that last comment? jtl lives in Texas. ;)

  • when i heard those election results i immediate;y thought of you Karen. hope you are doing ok.

    bonk the younger (my 4 yo boy) has this new thing where he comes down and gets into bed with us, without us noticing. not sure what to do

  • Karen, you forbid ToqueMan to respond to email because he is too mean, but it was you who was kicked out of the bitchy-moms club.

    What's up with that?

    P.S. The current comment going around about the election is... "So, who did you vote against?"

    Hey Bonk. Dig out your baby gate and put it across your bedroom door. Wee-Bonk won't be able to enter your room without you knowing it.

  • 1. Diane, how is the logo coming?

    2. Positive reinforcement is on the way Shelly.

    3. Todd, another positive to homeschooling, getting to sleep in :)

    4. Joe, I remember sleeping forever and a day as a teenage girl. I think it was a coping mechanism ;)

    5. King Bonk, if it were me, I would just allow bonk the younger to be in bed with you. Perhaps he just feels the need to be close to his parents at the moment. Easy for me to say, right.

    6. You're right Brad, I'm the mean bitchy one, I'm just in denial!

    As for the election results, I read the best quote today in The Toronto Star. "Harper is just a mere warm-up act for the next leader of the Liberal Party".

  • right karen i would agree no problem except he lies down perpendicular to the way me and wifey lay down so we make an "H" with him like a line in the middle. And he snores. God he snores snores. louder than me. and yesterday (not making this up) he had wrapped one leg around my head and had grabbed my wifes nose. I didnt wake up, but she did. Anyway i think your right nonetheless. or perhaps give him a little bunky bed to the side of our bed, so we dont get his toe in our eye. anyway... uh ... great show!

  • Sorry King Bonk, but that's quite funny! Yeah, a little bed next to yours would be a good idea.

  • Alberta Brad -

    Karen may have gotten kicked out of Bitchy Mom's Club but trust me, she's the nice one.

    There's a reason my parents ask to talk to Karen when they call and not me...
    King Bonk -

    Your woes are funny (and your most recent show, #6, is quite good as well). We can relate on a couple different levels. If you're thinking about the bed in your room and you live near an Ikea check out the "junior" kids beds they have. They are relatively cheap in comparison and small. I'm not sure of the height/weight restrictions of the beds or Bonk the younger's size but they're somewhat decent quality-wise (and small enough to shove under your bed when he outgrows this stage) if you're inclined to go this route.

  • Hi Karen,

    well, the logo is slow going-- no volunteers to design it would typify the theme of the club ;)

    the election result: Ugh.
    (considered and eloquent, I felt)

  • Paul suggested 2B1, ?1 (to be one, ask one) as our slogan... and turning our backs on those who ask as an acceptance/initiation. But that still leaves us logo-less.

    I slept entire days as teenager, too, Karen. Unconciousness was definitely preferable to the angst of being a teen.
