Hey, so guess what today is? That's right - it's St. Patrick's Day...but that's not all - it also happens to be the one year anniversary of my first official, cheap cam. 10 sec. timer self-portrait shoot - that's HUGE! And to celebrate this festive occasion, I have decided to deviate from the dark side for a spell, by
completely fabricating sharing the lighthearted(ish) story, that corresponds with the pig, er um - pics. that I've included in this post.
Once upon a time, a wayward and directionless circus performer, met up with a large and lugubrious pig. Within moments of first introducing themselves, the two became fast and famous friends.
The unemployed circus performer quickly learned that Miss Piggy was more down on her luck, than even she was - cuz ya' see...Miss Piggy had mere days before she'd be hauled off to slaughter (this part of the story is true...)
After dabbing their tears, the perpetually optimistic circus performer, formulated (what she thought was) a promising plan..."I know...let's run away and join the circus - together! I'll teach you some tricks and the whole world will love you...and instead of becoming someone's breakfast, you'll be coming V.I.P. - to every seated dinner!"
But Miss Piggy was a realist, and skeptical of the circus performer's hair-brained idea...not to mention highly insulted by her ridiculous requests...
...and she (understandably) retaliated with redoubtable rage!
Having reached a bitter stalemate, Miss Piggy sunk deeper into her rightfully-deserved depression...while the circus performer sulked on account of the sow's unfathomably unshakable insouciance.
But in no time at all, they were back on their feet - determined to spend Miss Piggy's last days...together. Two new, but dear friends...doing the things that they loved to do best...
Happy St. Patrick's/Self-Portrait Day!
