Turkey Time!

Happy Thursday Superfriends! In the past 36 hours I have eaten two saltines and two cups of water with a splash of fruit punch gatorade, but the good news is that after a dreadful bout of food poisoning, I am starting to feel better! I’m even feeling well enough to talk about turkey, no, not the food, the balloon.

Turkey first came into my life two years ago when my friend Carrie brought him to our annual Pilgrim and Indian party. Jeanette and I hosted our first Pilgrim and Indian party in my dorm room back in 2006 and it has been a lasting tradition ever since. Everyone dresses like a Pilgrim or Indian, we drink things like vodka cranberries and apple pie shots and undoubtedly take a lot of hilarious photos. When Carrie walked in with a giant Turkey balloon, it definitely took Pilgrim and Indian to the next level.

I was so delighted with Turkey that he ended up coming on my family’s trip to South Carolina for Thanksgiving. We took lots of funny pics of Turkey on the drive down and my friends followed Turkey’s antics on twitter with the hashtag #turkeygoessouth.

Yes, I am also responsible for the turkey hat. My family loves me.

Turkey was retired after Thanksgiving 2011 and unfortunately when I went to search for a new Turkey in 2012, I couldn’t find the same balloon! I ended up with a Turkey that was more anatomically correct, but a little less funny. Of course, that didn’t stop me from taking Turkey around for pics. Turkey even came to New York for my friend Courtney’s wedding. He stayed in the hotel during the actual event, but friends were able to follow Turkey’s activities with the hashtag #turkeywearsatux.

And for good measure I’ll throw in some pics from Courtney and Carl’s gorgeous wedding at the Harvard Club so you know the weekend wasn’t all about Turkeys! Thanks to Jeanette for lending me that brown dress!
