Oh great!

Oh this is just great. Wonderful.

Blogger hasn't been letting me into post, or to edit, or to delete any comments that I leave on your site that don't turn out the way I meant.

NOW, I have absolutely nuttin' to say, and the darn thing is cooperating. Lettin' me in. Darn blogging thing.

Ha! Well, let's just see what it does when I try to add a picture. That'll get it. It will blow me off or something that that.

Wait, maybe I should try to think of something to say! Quick! Think girl.

No. Sorry. I can't do it. Arrrggggggh. Also *sigh*.

Ya wasted your time here, huh? Well, if you sneak off and don't comment, no one will ever know. Save yourself some embarrassment. And as Hoss would say, I always vote for saving myself embarrassment. Or, would he? Say that I mean. Why would anyone save embarrassment? What would you do with it? And how much of it would you need, if you thought up something to do with it? Ol' Hoss is purdy darn smart, so I guess he wouldn't say that.

So I take that back. In fact, I'll just delete that part. I'll leave it in for now, of course. Then I'll try to get back into edit. So, if it's still there when you read this -- but you'll be savin' yourself embarrassment and not commenting, remember? -- then you will know that I couldn't get back in. Actually you're probably not reading this, so you'll never know. Kinda makes me sad -- your not knowin' and all. Too bad.

People always want to ask other folks, "What's your most embarrassing moment?" Like you would tell the truth about that. Like a person would confess to the true most embarrassing moment. (Look at how many times I'm getting to type 'ass' without it being noticed. heheheh.)

Mark Twain said that compliments embarrassed him. Said, "There is nothing you can say in answer to a compliment. I have been complimented myself a great many times, and they always embarrass me. I always feel that they have not said enough." That Twain.

Andy Warhol said that, "Dying is the most embarrassing thing that can ever happen to you, because someone's got to take care of all your details." Sorry Andy, I'm not buying that. Bet you had some embarrassing moments that you didn't share with us. I'm thinkin' that painting Campbell's Soup cans and pretending that it's art is a tad embarrassing.

Did you hear Michael Jackson say, "I embarrass easily" or "Me and Janet really are two different people."? How embarrassing.

And folks speak of an embarrassment of riches. What the heck is that? When it comes to riches, I don't think you could embarrass me enough.

You know, this got long, didn't it? Don't answer, you're just lurking here, remember? Funny. I started out with nothing to say, and I've still got most of what I didn't have to say left. Seems as if a person never runs out of nothing to say. But most say it anyway.
Some people.

This is a truly embassassing post. I really did start out just to see if I could get into blogger, and then was afraid to "let it go," so to speak. Let go of blogger I mean. SOooo, I just rambled on, saying nothing. Sad when you think about it, no?

Since you all are going to save embarrassing yourselves and not comment here, I thought I should leave myself a comment. Nice long one. It would be so embarrassing not to get a single comment. I might come back later and comment some more. Might as well,'cause no one is reading the comments, 'cause everyone knows there won't be any. *sniff* I'm getting kinda sad here.

Scott W said...

This is not a comment.

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

Letting anything go is beyond me most of the time!

I think you did exceptionally well.

Doug said...

Funny, Scott. Tan Lucy, what could you possibly have to be embarassed about. No, really. What?

AP3 said...

Perhaps you need new medication?

Actually, I've thought that dying is bound to be embarrassing. I mean, geez. People dealing with your nekkid body, and all your STUFF, and messes of ALL kinds that you leave behind... Yikes!

The Lazy Iguana said...

This is a test of the emergency comment system. BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

That is about as far as I can go with my material at this point.

By the way, the comments you left on my blog were great. That link is a public service to all who live in PA. By deleting it, I would be doing a dis-service to everyone.

As for the thing that I find most embarassing - that is easy. Dropping a big, noisy, stinky, eye watering fart in an elevator. The noise gives you away - EVERYONE knows you did the deed. And the stench makes everyone wonder if you are into gerbling or something.

On the other hand, if you can drop a ninja fart in an elevator, that is not so bad. Yea it stinks, but it is your stink so that makes it better (for you). Nobody can be 100% shure who did the deed. And it instantly KILLS all elevator chat.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

You're right, Luce. I would NOT say that. I would say "I always vote for embarrassing other people." Like you just did to yourself. (Heh. Hoss 1, Lucy 0)

Libby said...

yep, lucy,...i've always prided myself on being the 'embarrasser', not the 'embarrassee'! that's the fun way to go through life, especially if you have a daughter!!
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

schnoodlepooh said...

I'm excellent at being embarrassed. Heck, I embarrass myself all the time. I'm used to it. and I agree with AralPPP. I think that being dead is embarrassing, because someone has to see you all dead and yukky and naked and smelly and gross... ohhh I hope I don't find out how embarrassing it is!

dddragon said...

being embarressed by being dead and having people handle your nekkid body.

Oh, great. ANOTHER reason to lose weight.

Libby said...

how are YOU gonna be embarrassed WHEN YOU'RE DEAD?? the people that'll be embarrassed is your family...meanwhile...you have NO WORRIES!!
LibbY!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Thank you Scott, bet you were always the teacher's pet. Obeying the rules and all that.

Barbara, we could write a song together, "Letting Go is Hard to Do." We'll rip off Neil Sedaka's melody for it.

Doug , I'm not as innocent and dumb as I look. Okay? Even I am not allowed to know that information. Top secret stuff. (And boy, it's good!)

Aral 3P, you're not dealin' again are you? If so, whatcha got?

Lazy I, been there, done that.

Hoss, *bowing to your superiority.* You da man. never wanted to be a man anyway. Don't know how you can stand all that stuff hanging on, ya know?

Libby, It's a mother's sworn duty to embarrass her kids.

Schnoodlepooh, rest easy. You will NOT be embarrassed after you're dead. 3D you either. But YOU don't have to worry, since I'm your mother and know the rule about embarrassing the daughters. I'll take care of embarrassing you.

Libby, Libby , I know from reading your blog that you have better things to do than hang out on this silly blog!

actonbell said...

Hi! I'm here! That's a great exercise, btw, jotting down anything that comes to mind. See? It worked. You wrote another one of your great blogs:)

Tan Lucy Pez said...

still life, it's okay darlin'. Being lazy I mean. I was lazy today too.

Yo! Acton Bell. You are so sweet to say that. But sorry, honey, you are my daughter, so I will have to continue embarrassing you when I can. You make it easy. Thanks.

Goa'uld said...

There are about a jillion embarra**ing (gosh, I can’t even type the full word without thinking it’s a swear word. Thanks, Granny Nox...) moments that continue to haunt me...that’s the thing about embarra**ing ...they don’t seem to want to leave my head...though I’m sure most of you wouldn’t think some of the moments are actually embarra**ing, but I tend to have a low standard for what you may call “embarra**ing”...or rather I embarra** easily.

A Little Bar of Soap said...

Good for you, goa'uld, for not typing that horrible word!

Tom & Icy said...

Woof! Why do humans say, This goes without saying, and then they say it.

GodlessMom said...

Hmmm, I peed my pants in dance class when I was nine. That was pretty embarrassing. I try not to think about it.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Goa'uld you poor baby. You're so sweet and shy.

LBOS how compassionate. (Didcha ever notice the "ass" in that word?)

Tom and Icy, you know how some little dogs are yappy? Some little people are yappy too.

Godless, yeah, that's embarrassing. But let she among us who has never peed her pants, throw the first girdle.

ParisLondres said...

I just wanted to say that I love reading your blog. Your posts make me smile!
:D

Fred said...

All this and you had nothing to say? I'd hate to see a post when you really have something on your mind.

Minka said...

The peeing incident:
scene:
10 years old, geography lesson, test
horrified child:
Monika
occasion:
I was so shy that I did not dare raise my hand to ask to go to the toilet...I thought I could make it through the lesson. Shortly before the bell rung I couldn´t hold it in any more...it started running from my seat to under the table to the chair infront of me. Everybody stared, nobody said anything, the teacher asked everybody to leave the classroom and had a talk with me on the lines of "any trouble at home?!"
Yeah, I think that would be my most embarrassing moment and I am not afraid to share it, ´cause lets face it: I will never have to look you in the eyes with the knowledge that you know!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Well, thanks Paris. Now no matter what happens to me in my life, I can think, "I'll always have Paris."

Sorry, Fred, but I rarely have anything to say. I just say it anyway.

Monika, how wonderful of you to come over, and with a great peeing story!
We all have those stories, don't we? We just don't all admit to them. I was a bed-wetter until age six, so I have too many to talk about.

mireille said...

I don't know where to start. I think probably my fantasy of you scoring drugs off Aral was probably my most embarrassing thought ... but then I wander through the idea of losing weight with ddd so I'll leave a beautiful non-embarrassing corpse. And with my predilection, I need to specify which perfume(s) I'm to be buried with. You know, in my pyramid. Ooops, off-topic. Stream of embarrassing. Also, what do you have on Actonbell? Embarrassing-wise? Just curious. xoxoxo

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Hey mireille! Always nice to see you.
Did I ever mention that my MAMA is in the Great Pyramid? Also at the feet of the Sphinx! Her ashes I mean. But I digress.

I don't need anything on ActonBell! I can embarrass her without doing or saying anything...because, she never knows just what I might do or say.

Doug said...

Gosh are we telling embarassing pee stories? Here's about a three week old one: I was at a restaurant and went to the bathroom. It was one of those places where the restrooms are off an antechamber of a hallway off the seating area. I turned a corner, then another, then another and there was a girl in a chair talking on her cell phone. I turn the corner and went to the urinal and heard the girl say "Michelle I think we're in the men's room." Completely didn't register that there were no more turns after the girl on the cell phone.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Doug, my mouth dropped at reading this! LMAO. WhooBoy!

Hope your back was to her.

Doug said...

Profile, but that covers a lot.
