MMTPT79 - YA THINK HE'S TOO LITTLE? HE'S STUCK IN THE MIDDLE!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #79
YA THINK HE'S TOO LITTLE? HE'S STUCK IN THE MIDDLE!

Note: Anyone is welcome to play! Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun!

This is my story!

1. Welcome to Teapot Tuesday #79! Whew! Do you guys remember when we went to California and brought all of our California Cow wannabe's to try out. And you know Alicia won right? Yah, that's right, my cow won! You might *think* your cow won but I am here to tell you that MY cow won! Yep, Alicia won! Okay, so I know what you're gonna say. You're gonna say, so what's your point?

2. Well, since Alicia has been a California cow, she has become extremely successful, dinner at the White House, sold out How to be Successful lectures, appearances on Ophra, Larry King, and Jay Leno, a new book contract for the story of her life, and she is even negotiating for the SuperBowl half time gig! Her brother Curt misses her so! It's no surprise that the only way he can see her is to travel to California. He is in awe of her new life style and he's having the time of his life! The highlight of his visit has been meeting Morty the Magnificent, a Hollywood Stunt Cow! He's highly paid ($42,000 a stunt!), he's extremely successful and in huge demand! He's a little worried about keeping up with his schedule so he's decided to take Curt under his wing and show him the ropes! He thinks Curt will be a fine, up and coming, Hollywood Stunt Cow and maybe take a little load off!

3. Well Curt, that squirt, thinks he's all that! He's getting way too over confident. He's jumping through barns on fire, doing flips off hay stacks, and hanging with the PBR bulls in the stock yard just to learn *the attitude*! He's decided he's ready for the big time and he accepted a dangerous stunt despite Alicia's concern! Well, he jumped over the moon and he's so little he got stuck in the middle! Eeeekkkk!

4. So here's the plan Johan. Johan is the special effects coordinator and he is just brutal when it comes to the schedule! We're headed to Hollywood girls, to either get Curt to listen to Alicia and consider a different career or listen to Morty the Magnificent and stick with his Hollywood Stunt Cow dreams. You be the judge, ya think he's too little? Is that why he's stuck in the middle?

Our job is to encourage him or show him a new career. Let's show him how to buff up, get physical, bring on the tuff guy, stunt guy image or show him a career more suitable to his puny little fragile body. Maybe a florist working with beautiful flowers, a fashion designer specializing in black and white prints, maybe play a fiddle (hey, diddle, diddle!) in a country band! If you can't quite make up your mind which career path Curt should take, just bring something to calm down Johan, maybe a present or some wine or something!! He's getting a little irritated!

Oh and we getta try Alicia's new line of special teas! Hey, you don't think we are doing this stuff for nuttin' do you?

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT79 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Here is a link to my Teapot Tuesday #79 card.
Here is a link to the MMTPT79 Challenge Gallery and our adventures with Curt the Squirt!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peak) on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!

If you are confused about these challenge, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

Your card is amazing Cindy and right on the money. I must say I am a bit stumped with this one. Kinda like back when you had the butt ugly teapot remember? Hee. So I just don't know what I am gonna do for this one. Gotta think on its, me think. Will be seeing you later. TTFN (Ta Ta For Now).

HamiltonGal 02-01-2010 08:23 PM

So I'm posting early as I won't be around until late tomorrow night. Will be back then or Wednesday to gaze and comment!

Here's my card - TFL!

raduse 02-01-2010 09:58 PM

I have so gotta think on this one.

KelliJo 02-01-2010 10:28 PM

OMG!!! I SOOO prefer my Michael Jackson guess.... :rolleyes::mrgreen:

NUTTIN just said POP! into the ole brains... good thing its' still Monday in my neck o the woods....

2manycookbooks 02-01-2010 11:13 PM

I've been thinking about this since I started stalking and then I received very nice PM to not be scared to join.

I'm just not that creative...

So If I can do something just WAY basic and simple...I'll work on it and then get my creative story tellin juices flowing for the future.

I've been wrapped up in mini vsn all weekend! that was a ball too!

it's not too late to join the main event btw.

Cook22 02-01-2010 11:53 PM

My, I was waiting for the challenge to pop up on your blog before it's time to go to work, and it was here all the time! I'd better read it again quickly before I have to leave my cosy bed and get dressed. Catch you later - hope I can come up with some idea at work this morning. Shame I have none of those Penny Black cow stamps :-(

Ksnurse 02-02-2010 03:25 AM

Oh my that Curt sure got himself in a fine mess this time...Looks like Kim managed to boost his confidence enough that he's finally unstuck....now we just have to help him with a new and improved plan...after this bunch of teapotters gets there he'll have so many new options...hmmmm, I'll have to ponder on this...off to work for now

Darn it! Who was the smart teapotter that send you a pm of encouragement??? Darn it, I wish it woulda been me!!! Why didn't I think of that! I send pms about not being able to find my paper piercer and when a REAL reason presents itself, I miss it? Oh brudder!

Dawn, holy cow, if you can do VSN, you can do Teapot Tuesday girl. Remember there are no rules, you don't even have to tell a story, just come have tea with us!!

Hold on, Gertie want's to say something.....gotta cut this short!

It's Gertie! 02-02-2010 04:15 AM

Dawn, just get your head outa those cookbooks and get your derierre to Hollywood! I hear they have some incredible new cookbooks only available in Hollywood. Brand spankin new line of cookbooks! I am sure you would not have seen them!! Curt the Squirt told me he heard that if you are the first to buy one, the cookbook will be signed by the author who is remaining anonymous. So, your new cookbook will become extremely rare and immediately worth $42,000!

The teapotters chipped in and bought you the first copy but you have to come to the teaparty in Hollywood to get it! Its worth $42,000!

Nanner, Nanner, Boo! Boo!

Mothermark 02-02-2010 04:20 AM

Dawn, Gertie is my altered ego.....beware! Sometimes she has a tendancy to tell *stories!* Just a word of caution to a potentially new teapotter!

mamadwawa 02-02-2010 06:07 AM

I'm with KJ, nothing is going *POP*, fortunately I am home all day. I will conference with the kittens and the parrot and see if they have any ideas. Of course this will have to be two separate conferences for when the kittens get in the room with the parrot, they just look at him with their "hungry eyes". Makes it hard for the poor guy to concentrate...

MariLynn 02-02-2010 06:32 AM

When they anounced that Alicia won, I let out a hoop and a holler, and my kids looked at me like I really had lost it I told them about the cow tea party and they knew I had lost it!! This one looks like another great challenge. I'll have to think on this one!!

thanks, MM! this one was great fun! Hope you get a kick out of mine...alas no dots! Forgive me???

etsdas 02-02-2010 07:43 AM

I actually used the teapot for some of the inspiration. Because of the image I used, I had to portray Alicia! And the stars kind of turned into askerisks... oh, well.
Here it is:

Been thinking about this all day and here ya go.

Here is my story:

Bossy's first tea party

Please don't laugh.

Keep in mind I broke my cutting wheel of my trusty dahle 508.

that's some hay to chop isn't it! LOL! I guess I made the hills and fence too thick for the dahle. But in it's defense, I have used it a LOT in the last 2 years and ordered a replacement blade today.

Bossy had fun breaking the blade for her first tea party.

And TFL.

Dawn! Your card absolutely rocks! It is awesome! What were you worrying about girl??? I am so sorry you broke some equipment while playing....what a bummer....but your card does not give a hint to that at all! Its truely awesome. Yah, you came! We'll see if Gertie will give you that cookbook she promised you for showing up! Yikes!

Mothermark 02-03-2010 12:12 AM

kittie747 02-03-2010 02:19 AM

I missed getting to play on Tuesday.......!!! Darn that job mine. A cow and moon story is just too good to miss. See ya later for sure, Cindy.

mamadwawa 02-03-2010 08:28 AM

I am not really late, as mine was done yesterday. My computer just was not hooked up to the scanner and I had to run to rehearsal...

Here is my gal Chrystal with a couple of options for Curt. Not quite the level of those I am seeing in the gallery, even so, I hope you think she is kinda cute...

sleepyinseattle 02-03-2010 10:45 AM

My card is Alicia's friend Essie who is quite steamed that she has been left behind. She had visions of Hollywood but apparently Alicia and Curt left without her. Ohh, look out, she is scheming and steaming. Just look at her face!

2manycookbooks 02-03-2010 09:55 PM

My little bossy told me she has so many new friends stopping by to offer her tea and welcome her to the neighborhood she's feeliing a little less stuck and not to frazzled.

Thanks everyone!

Hey by the way I'll definitely be back. It's tax season and I'm a CPA so it may not be every week til after 4/15 but I WILL be back.

In the meantime I assume it's OK to go back and particpate in earlier stories?

This is so fun! I just wasn't sure if I had enough of an imagination -- but I'm getting it!

raduse 02-03-2010 10:17 PM

Blasted job of mine has also gotten in the way of stamping this week. Never fear Mudder, I'll have one up by tommorrow. Stamped image is already on the table and set to color since I know what I want to do and it's a riot IMO.;) Now hopefully, it turns out on paper like it's turned out in my head. If not, I just might be considered crazy.:(
