So make it hard on a gal why don't you? Oh you guys have had me in stitches over the last few days. I never knew how many piggy names were out there! You guys were seriously creative and I changed my mind about 10 times. Here are some of the favorites:
Dena suggested Porka-Dot which was hil-ar-ious. You made my day be having Dustin spurt Diet Coke out of his nostrils when I told him about this one. (Go check out Dena's blog-such cute bags! And she always has the cutest shoes on!)
Kim suggested Porkahontis, much to my super amusement and everyone else that read the blog or heard the term in the last 3 days. SO creative!
Many of you pulled at my much loved name and came up with derivatives of Portabellopixie. Porkabello Pixie, Portabello Piggie-my favorite being Porkabello Piggie. Hee hee hee.
But then, there was a name somewhere on the 5th or 6th page that as soon as I read it, I knew was the winner. Did this person know that I loved this movie so much? No, I've never talked about it. I have planned several posts devoted to how wonderful this movie is, how happy it makes me to listen to the music, how many hours my children and I have rocked out to it dancing in the kitchen. But I hadn't found the perfect time yet. Until now.
"In the spirit of the musical, Hairspray, how about Piggy Pinkleton?"
Oh tell me you have seen this movie? (The starting music track today is from it.) LOVE it. If you guys had any idea how many times I listened to the soundtrack while designing the next line, you'd think it was going to be named Hairspray. (It's not.)
Now, I have to say-I recently watched the original for the first time and thought it was horrid. As in terrible BAD. If you have seen the original and have similar feelings and they have resulted in your not partaking of the remake, please rent it! I think it is the most perfectly cast movie I've ever seen! Not to mention, I found my new boyfriend in that movie.
So, Kristen, congratulations. You have picked up on my inner Hairspray vibes that I hadn't let out yet. You have the force.
For everyone else that put so much creative effort into naming Piggy Pinkleton, so sorry. BUT-I hijacked Kathy's blog today and there are even larger quantities of fabric being given away over there so you have another chance right now! And it will be readily available in days/week. Mid February. Soon. Promise-thank you for putting up with the wait! Oh-it's up on the Michael Miller website now too!
