Aw, man, you do know how to ruin my fun, don't you? Ok, I'll start.

I am celeste and I don't have a webpage (security issues, you know) and I am from Venus.

I was embarrassed when Denis called the cops on me (even though he knows I love him).

If I were a pottery item, I would be a little teapot, short and stout.

I have no cool videos or links because I just got home and need to have breakfast before getting some beauty sleep (not that I need any, but I do need to recharge my batteries).

GR said...

Figures. Celeste the bad, number one, checking email in the morning after a late night club hopping.
OK! ME!
1) I hope you know who I am because this is my blog.
2) Ha! I get to be piggy bank.
3) I was embarrassed when I was in 8th grade and vomited all over my math class.
4) Joy Division!

I am Lou and this is my webpage www.louphoria.wordpress.com and I am from Ireland (Dublin originally, now living in Sligo). I was embarrassed when I thought I was holding a customer and talking to a colleauge (but was actually still on to the customer) and I shouted 'fucking Irish customer'. I then had to explain my bad langauge and apparent racisim away to someone who just didn't want to hear it. Nice.

If I were a pottery item I would be a big red mug with a cute kitty winding it's tail up the handle, indeed the handle could well be the tail all a'winding. Yes, we can share the idea Gary ;)

Here is a cool link: http://www.micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java/scienceopticsu/powersof10/ - when you get to the end, zoom back out really quickly, it's makes me dizzy, which is always amusing

gr said...

yay Lou!!!

I noticed that I didn't even follow my own script, and my typos are numerous, oh well. Write what you wish, actually.

cm said...

I am cm and I don't have a webpage, either. I am originally from New Brunswick (the Canadian province, not the city in Jersey) and now reside in Toronto.

I was embarrassed each time I vomited on a date (I do that a lot).

If I were a pottery item I would be a flower vase.

I'm at work, so no cool vids or links. Plus I send 'em all to our host to post anyway.

cm said...

Oh, and I meant I vomited while out on the date, not on the guy himself.

gr said...

ewww!

Man, I am sooo boring! I don't have a blog of my own, I just hitchhike on everybody else's, without any embarrassment whatsoever. If I were to be a pottery item, I'd be one of those wonderful reclining pigs on that plaque of Gary's telling everybody to RELAX! As to the last time I embarrassed myself, I can't remember. One of the compensations of getting old, I think, and which I very much enjoy. I used to have a recurring dream in which I was in a play and there I was, lines unlearned, reading 'em as we went along, from my 'sides' (a term given to a little booklet containing only the cues and lines for an acotr). THAT was embarrassing, but never actually happened.

gr said...

you're not boring, Mary Lee, you're very exciting.

ML said...

And I haven't even taken my clothes off yet, either! ;-)

gr said...

well, ah, let's keep in mind this a G-RATED blog folks...

celeste said...

Well, hurry up, ml, we're waiting!

Susan as herself said...

I am Susan and my webpage is www.susanasherself.blogspot.com

But you know that because I stop by here.

If I were pottery I would be something chipped but hopefully with a very shiny glaze with that special stuff that looks like crackly glass because I think that's so pretty and I would need help to distract from my chips.

I have no cool links because I am a lame-o in that area. is it not enough that I made a pottery metaphor? Sheesh. :)

gr said...

Well done, Susan.

gr said...

btw--Mary Lee is a grandmother and should not be encouraging repeat offenders like Celeste

Ellen said...

I am Ellen, and my web page is thorskettle.blogspot.com, or ellenmccorkle.etsy.com. I am from the Chicago area, but reside now in Georgia. I have been embarrassed too many times to recount them. I am a great forgetter. I haven't ever thrown up in class or on a date though. Guess I am just kind of boring... If I were a piece of pottery I would be a very large canister. Full of sugar. I don't know any cool videos or links. I already admitted to being rather boring...

gr said...

Ellen is the coolest! The bees knees!

celeste said...

But will she take her clothes off?

Kate & Jim said...

Chiming in late here.

We are Kate & Jim and we don't have a blog (as you know). We live about 60-80 miles North of NYC. (bout 3 hrs South of Gary.)

Not too many embarrassing moments, only minor 'name' forgetting, unless you want to count the time when I fell splat out in the street off a curb one day into traffic, at lunch time...(only my pride was hurt). Jim says he's no fool...he's not tellin! ha!

If I were a piece of pottery, I'd be a lovely, smooth, moss green, tea mug. (but I also love Susan's idea of the chipped crackled glass) Jim says he'd be a Tankard Mug...doesn't care what color it is! haha! (Just as long as he can drink out of it..eh!)

No fancy links or videos here. I'll probably think of one later though.

John Bailey said...

I am John Bailey aka old grey poet and my webpage is at http://www.oldgreypoet.com from whence you may go on to my blog.

I was embarassed when I was a bit younger.

If I were a pottery item I'd be a 300 year old raku tea bowl, thrice broken and mended with gold.

Here's a cool link: Ryan vs. Dorkman 2

L said...

1) I am Marian and this is my (now more or less defunct)webpage http://www.the-internationalist.blogspot.com/
I am from Quebec city, but am now living in Ottawa
2) I was embarrassed when I fell on my face while pregnant in front of a Kaiser's supermarket in Budapest.
3) If I were a pottery item, I would be a flower pot
4) Here is a cool video or link http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3385627676357620916&q=trabant&total=1508&start=20&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=5

Crap. The link is here:

The Internationalist said...

Sorry, that did not work.

The Internationalist said...

I should have put Hi! I am technologically challenged and my website is ...

gr said...

Marian, you folks left Budapest? That was recent. Thanks for the visit here.
I will look into blocking Celeste in the future, although she does add something like a splash of Tabasco to this blog.
So glad OGP, Kate and Jim visited, these are some rather vivid and interesting pots you folks are imagining!

Kate & Jim said...

Keep Celeste! Just block the Unicorns! ;)

celeste said...

What they said!

CM said...

So who's missing? Denis. Greg. Anyone else?

Ellen said...

CELESTE: Of COURSE I take my clothes off...every time I get in the shower! What kind of a question is THAT??? If you are asking, do I run nekkid (that is southern for 'up to no good naked') at parties or down the street, the answer is NO! There are laws against that to keep people like me from scaring others in that way. I am reasonable sure there are laws against elephant stampedes for the same reasons...

ML said...

Oh, Ellen, I like the way you think. Wanna be friends? And I'd probably point out that I only said I HADN'T taken my clothes off. Never said I intended, now did I?

celeste said...

You guys are no fun at all. :-(

gr said...

And Celeste is not exactly a good girl.
Update on busy art trail weekend:
it has been superb and outstanding so far. 20 customers today. The first 3 customers, bless them, filled a total of seven, SEVEN, boxes of pots.
Each box held several items......that was about 25% of my total stock on hand. Yes, I am aking more.

Mrs. P said...

This is Maude. I have no webpage but this one is good enough.
One fall day in Chicago I was wearing really cheap, new patent leather shoes and trying to catch the el. I was running down a long ramp to the platform where the train had stopped. A light rain had fallen and the pavement was a bit damp. I ran faster and faster thinking "I won't make it, but the train is still there . . ." Right outside the door to the first car I tried to stop and fell with a spectacular swoop.
"You hurt?" the conductor asked.
"Just my pride," I said. Standing around him was an entire class of conductors in training, all with huge smiles.
I took a seat in the very back of the car.
My first answer to what piece of pottey I'd be would be a bud vase. No need to arrange a bunch of flowers! But after that story maybe it's more realistic to list "flat-bottomed, stationary dog dish."
I like the video with the guy holding the sign "Free Hugs." Mr. Pots once posted it.

CM said...

I'm sorry, Mrs P, I left you off the missing list. :-(

L said...

My father is very sick, so we've moved back to Canada to be closer to him - Marian.
