That's what friends are for


Cameo and I have known each other for 20 years now and we are still finding out new things about one another.
A few months ago we got on the subject of Miss Piggy. We found out that we were both big fans of hers back in the early 80's and we both had the Miss Piggy sheets and the Miss Piggy mug. We also wondered if Miss Piggy had any effect on our emerging preteen psyches, the same way we have discussed the effect Maddona may have had on our teenage sexuality.
Well enough with the pop culture psych. The real reason for this post is to show off my May Day gift. Cameo found this Miss Piggy mug at a garage sale. Needless to say it makes me very happy.
It's nice to have a friend you can connect with on many levels, especially if one of them is a mutual preteen love for a bossy ass, frog smothering, egotistical pig.

What a great mugshot of Miss Piggy's mug!! I was more into Fozzy, myself...I related to his Wacka Wacka Wackaness.

You guys are so cute, I just wanna drive out to the midwest and have coffee in some Muppet mugs with you two.

I had Miss Piggy's guide to life and read it over and over and over and over. Well, I was a little too young for the satire, but I remember LOVING the pictures and I've always had a life-long love for diaramas and such. I bought myself a copy on Ebay recently and all the memories came pouring back.
