Tonton the Pig

Written by Lillian Tram on November 28th, 2011

 

 

I love watching anime, and one of my favorite anime characters is Tonton from Naruto, who just happens to be a pig. She doesn’t speak but has no trouble getting her point across. Tonton is super strong and fun to watch. She also has a keen sense of smell just like me!

 

Nanoblock Pink Pig

Written by Lillian Tram on November 26th, 2011

 

Growing up, I enjoyed playing with legos and made some pretty cool creatures and robots on my own. I came across this Nanoblock pink pig and it brought back some fond memories. I’m pretty excited to make a pig out of lego nanoblocks. Of course, you can’t have just one cute pig, so I might have to build a few more pigs to complete a piggy family. Hmm..I wonder if they make pink regular-size legos?

The Muppets featuring Miss Piggy

Posing with The Muppets poster take 1…a little stiff.

 

Posing with The Muppets poster take 2…having fun and looking like the characters from the poster. Success!

 

I was fortunate enough to see the premiere showing of The Muppets at the AMC theater on Tuesday at midnight. They were giving out posters to the first 50 customers. To my surprise, there was a pretty long line and I had to wait, anxiously, to get my poster. The movie was charming, humorous, clever, and heartwarming. I would see it again in a heartbeat. It appears that the critics like the movie, as on Rotten Tomatoes, The Muppets got a whopping 97% rating.

 

I found a editorial on Gizmodo that recommended that the Muppets should host the Oscars. The author contacted the Muppets and they actually replied and sent him a pic of Miss Piggy.

 

Frog in Throat (Naughty Miss Piggy)

Written by Lillian Tram on November 22nd, 2011

 

This could be interpreted in different ways depending on how you read it. Nothing like a little piggy innuendo for a chuckle. Next time I get a sore throat or laryngitis, I’ll be using Miss Piggy’s ‘I have a frog in my throat’ line.

I own plenty of blankets but you can never have enough piggy blankets. I found a website called Happy Blankie that sells a blanket in the shape of a piggy face and I will be adding this to my blanket collection soon. Once I receive Giggles the Piggy Blankie, I will be reviewing it and posting up photos.

 

Weeeeeeeeeee! Piggy GEICO Commercial.

Written by Lillian Tram on November 14th, 2011

 
I’m usually not one to watch commercials ever since I bought my TiVo but this commercial gets me every time. Next time you’re in the backseat of a car, give it a try, it’s fun. And if you’re ever driving along the side of the road and hear that sound, it’s probably me!

Best Tattoo Ever! Clever Pig.

Voting Registration for Blossom the Pig

Written by Lillian Tram on November 9th, 2011

 

Today at the voting polls, Georgians are voting on Sunday alcohol sales and sales tax.  I was reminded of an article I came across about a pig receiving an invitation to register to vote.  I thought it would be a fun story to post.

 

Pigs are clever animals but are they clever enough to vote?  Apparently, at least one council thinks a pig named Blossom can, and given our current economic woes, we could use all the help we can get.

Bacon Pig!

Written by Lillian Tram on November 7th, 2011

 

CNN brings up a valid question in this article: Does it always have to be turkey for Thanksgiving?  One chef had an idea to make an appetizer pig with bacon, pork, and sausages.  Peruse the pics and I think you’ll agree that the idea is just brilliant.  Now don’t get me wrong, I’m getting a little angina just looking at the pig.  But a pig made out of bacon and sausages?  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  So spice up the holidays with some bacon pig!
