Dear Mr. Turkey

Well, it is that time of year again when all of us stop and remember that we have a lot to be thankful for. I realize that for you Mr. Turkey "Thankful" might not be a feeling that you experience on Thanksgiving. But just in case you were feeling bummed here are some reasons that you have to be Thankful.

  • You make one of the funnest animal noises... gobble gobble.
  • You are one of the easiest animals to draw because you just have to outline the hand and draw the beak.... consequently you make a lot of kids feel like artists (what a boost in self confidence!)
  • You are a delightful low fat option, as your meat is low in saturated fats.
  • You are delicious... and you have really nice legs.
  • Stove Top would be nothing with out you!!!
  • You have been on TV next to some of the biggest names in Hollywood, although my favorite was on Seinfeild.

  • You also bring families together to enjoy a meal and remember how truly blessed they are.

You are the best! Thank you Mr. Turkey, you are truly appreciated!

Love Tacy

My eyes are twitching slightly right now, and I can never tell if I am just really tired when that happens or if there is something on my contacts. I suppose I should start carrying eye drops around with me to eliminate the later. But even if it was due to sleepiness I have yet to work up enough courage to take a nap at school. There is just something frightening about being "unconscious" amongst hundreds of strangers... college age strangers for that matter. I have seen nappers on school couches awake only to find that during what they had hoped to be a peaceful slumber they were covered with fliers and crumpled up pieces of paper thrown on them by passersby s. I always find it amazing that people will come here and just completely conk out on a couch in the middle of the student union.

The other day I saw two people crammed on one couch with arms and legs draped over the sides... mouths gaping open, their jackets, hats books and bags were cluttered around them on the floor and they were snoring... these two were far away in dreamland. But I was kind of embarrassed for them, it looked absolutely ridiculous. Had I accidentally stumbled into someones private living room... No it was just Coffman Memorial Hall in the middle of the afternoon.

I remember when I was working downtown, every once in awhile I would find someone sleeping on the couch in the break room. It always kind of made me uncomfortable to eat my lunch just inches away from someone napping. The men seemed to enjoy being on their backs (belly up), while most women nap curled in the fetal position (which to me seems a little more proper in the world of social naps). I guess what made me so uncomfortable was that I couldn't help but observe them... the funny sleeping body twitches, the breathing noises (snoring or other), the hand and arm that wanders looking for a comfortable position, the mouth that slowly falls open, and if you are lucky enough to observe a droplet of drool slowly escaping. However my dilemma lies in the awkwardness of them to waking up and find me there starring them down, over my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Perhaps that is why I am nervous to nap in public... because I assume people are as snoopy as I am and are observing my sleeping habits.

I don't know what do you think about naps in public places?

American Idol - Worst Singer Ever!!! #6

So, I have no idea if this was a real tryout or not... but it seriously cracks me up. I can't stop saying "Projecting" now. Ummm which by the way if you haven't seen the Chocolate Rain video before by Tay Zonday I really highly reccomend it.

Move over Tina Fey...

Halloween was a blast-ola. As promised I dressed up as the one and only Sarah Palin, although I resembled the Tina Fey version slightly more. Joe dressed up as McCain, or Maverick as I like to call him... and we were a hit! I kind of felt like a celebrity and people kept wanting to take our picture. We won the contest for best couple, and got to make a little acceptance speech.

I don't know what it is about playing make believe that makes me so happy! I was in character all night long because I loved seeing people's reactions when I spoke in her Alaskan accent. In my childhood I was an attention hog and whether I like to admit it or not I still tend to be We have quite a few family home videos of me shoving my brother and sister violently out of the way of the camera so I could have the lime-light. Secretly I wanted to be an actress in my younger years, but my sister was a great thespian of the stage at Northdale Middle school and I feared that I would only be hid in her Shadow... so I never pursued my acting career... except for that one time in elementary school when I was a munchkin in The Wizard of OZ (I rocked that role by the way).

Here are a few snapshots of the night. Enjoy!!!!!

Here we are with the Siamese twins. Double your fun, that is two votes in one!!

Here I am with a contestant of the Price is right, and Tiger Lilly from Neverland. We had a giant take our picture... hence the great camera angle!

Here John and I are paying tribute to this nice young sailor boy, we thanked him for his service to the country and him and John shared some war stories.. good times!

The amazing Miss Tiger Lilly once again.

Here we have another Sarah Palin... we traded hair secrets and I told her how she could get amazing volume.

Then Bzzzzz I ran right into a little bumble bee, with the most amazing beehive... the secret (she uses honey instead of hairspray... who would have known)

It was a long night for John and I, but we felt the night was a success, we really got to connect with the people. You now the Joe Plumbers and Hockey Mom's of America. WISH US THE BEST FOR TOMORROW!!!!
