Last week, and the weekend review.

Pig update.


Last week was manic. We (as a family) hardly stopped.

It was the school christmas play last week, and they did 4 performances in total. It was "The Wizard of Mos" this year. D2 was a munchkin. D1 was the lead role! Dorothy. I filmed it (yes, they still allow cameras during the performance) and I would put her singing "somewhere over the rainbow" on youtube, but D1 would kill me. With great predjudice.

They also both took part in a huge choir thing called Young Voices involving most of the schools in Sheffield. That was pretty good. They did this one thing where as they were all singing the conductor would point to a section of the singers, and that section would do a mexican wave. It looked fantastic.

Then this weekend was the York pantomime. Lots of running around, singing and men dressing up as women. Fantastic family fun! Once again D2 got a wagon wheel. When I was a kid I went to the panto every year, and every year he would chuck wagon wheels. I got one in all the time I was going.
D2 has been going for about 4 years now, and has got a wagon wheel every single time. Something to do with being very cute and having long wavey pale blonde hair I think.

So lots of late nights, and now two tired out grumpy children.

Pig update.

I've received more than enough money for the deposit, so I'll be sending that off tonight. I'll update the accounts page with a piggy progress counter as well, so people can check how much has been raised towards the final feast.

Name that pig! I need some ideas for a name for the pig, so we can throw a poll on the front page. Any ideas? Mine are either,

Pig name suggestions by theboz (4.00 / 2) #4 Mon Dec 15, 2008 at 05:56:28 AM EST
"That Big Motherfucker"  - Think of it as wishful thinking.  Any time you see a photo of it or something, you can say, "Look at 'that big motherfucker'" and it will eventually come true and your pig will be huge, and good eating.  Plus, you don't want to give something you're going to eat a cute name, otherwise you'll be sad when you eat it.

"Porky" - Ever watch Warner Bros cartoons?  Enough said.  Just be sure that you stutter when serving it.

"Mr. Bacon Butt" - That way, you are always reminded that this is not something cute, it is living food.

I could come up with more, but I'm tired so I won't have any good ideas until later, probably after you've already selected a name.  Maybe something like "Hammy Swirlpecker" would be good, but I don't think most people would get it.

Bim. by ana (2.00 / 0) #15 Mon Dec 15, 2008 at 06:32:32 AM EST
In honor of this ditty from Dr Seuss Fox in Socks:

Bim comes.
Ben comes.
Bim brings Ben's broom,
Ben brings Bim's broom.
Bim bends Ben's broom,
Ben bends Bim's broom.
Bim's bends,
Ben's bends.
Bim's bent broom breaks,
Ben's bent broom breaks.
Bim's band,
Ben's band.
Big bands.
Pig bands.
Bim and Ben lead bands with brooms.
Bim's band bangs,
and Ben's band Booms.
So I'm not entirely sure Bim was a pig, but his band was. This has become such a part of our shared experience that if somebody says "Big $x," the rejoinder is almost inevitably "Pig $x."

cowpig. Not the best of the collection, by a long way. Pigasus was my favourite.

Yes, Bath did have 100 differently decorated identical pig statues distributed around its streets.

Boston did that with Cod.

I like Pigasus. I thought "Pigmalion" was a good name, too.
