No Zed = A life not worth living

Well, you all have a bit of a reprieve!

My mother's flight is delayed by 90 minutes to 1 hour due to terrorism-airport problems. Sooooooooooo, you have more time to think of sometime nice to say in Zed's I-Can-Make-Up-Better-Stories-Than-You Contest (or whatever it's called--see post below).

I KNOW you can do it. I KNOW it's just that you're afraid of not saying enough!

Guilt trip: Thanks to Jane, I have something to show my mother. (See thread title.)

Don't be mean to an 87-year-old woman! And don't miss out on your opportunity to win a $10 or $15 gift card from a good coffee/donut/whatever place!

oh okay. How about this?

A day with Zed is like a day with a giganto storm with lightning, thunder and occasional snow and sleet.

Well, that wasn't quite what I had in mind... But it's good!

It has a "je ne sais pas quoi" quality about it! Thanks I think!

do you want a poem?

Zed is nice
just like rice
or little white mice
or dots on dice
or those bugs called lice
or a cold steel vice
or a drink with ice

Zed, as you know I've already entered the potential winning entry in your contest, the well-known phrase,

No Zed = A Life Not Worth Living

but here's another jsut to ensure my win:

Zed is nuts but in a somewhat nice way.


Zed makes me laugh when I'm so exhausted I can't keep my eyes open.

And finally how about,

Zed is a keeper. And she's all yours Mom!

Do you like any of those? haha!

Dear Zed's Mom;

I don't need to be bribed with a contest to tell you how wonderful Zed is. I only just started reading her blog, and she already added an icon supporting my relay for life for my sister who died of cancer last year.

I was drawn to Zed because of her sister Carole, who I understand also was afflicted with the Big C. It is a terrible disease, and because Zed and I have that in common with our sisters, I can't resisit coming back here and reading how she is doing.

Zed makes the world a much better place. I know you must be proud, even though she made you read these comments.


**Sorry, I will try to think of more silly stuff, Zed.**

Thank you, Lynda. That was beyond beautiful. Big, big hug sent your way.

You have been relieved of your duties as silly poster on this thread ONLY. :)

Thank you again.

Zed saves puppies & kittens from burning buildings whenever she can
when she's not volunteering at the children's hospital that is. And on the weekends she does that meals on wheels thing.. that's nice.

And then when I found out she donates HALF of her income to 10 different charities.. I thought WOW what a saint! she's not here right now - she's at the soup kitchen AGAIN.. helping poor people eat

And later she's working the phones for that Jerry's Kid telethon thing...

Yep...It's true.
Zed makes the worLd a better place

Damn straight.

Thank you so much!

I flew today also (meetings in the bay area) and it was not a pleasant experience. Waiting in line for four hours, missing my flight and having to fly standby to another airport, rent a car, and drive two hours to my destination :(

I hope your mother had a better trip.

Hi Rob,
Sorry for your traveling nightmare. My mother was quite shaken by it all (she's 87), and truthfully I also found it no fun to be in an airport yesterday. Everyone was looking at everyone else quite suspiciously.

I hope you made it safely where you needed to go. Trains are starting to look good to me--or walking. Walking's looking really good.
