Adopt a Turkey!

I still have to post a few things on our trip back home, but thought I'd take a moment to share a little something I posted on Veganista:

Ever wanted to pardon a turkey, but didn't have the funds to run for president?  Great news!  You can adopt one!

Last year, though I was, yes, a vegetarian, I bought a free-range Heritage turkey from a local farmer.  We were having family over and I felt it wouldn't be right not have turkey (then again - pilgrims didn't really have turkey at their feast!).  Any who, I couldn't even cook the thing, leaving it to my mother-in-law while I secretly cried in the bathroom.  The guilt!

I refused to ever have a turkey at my Thanksgiving ever again.  

This year, we are an ocean away from the United States, but that doesn't mean we won't be celebrating Thanksgiving.  I have SO many plans - vegan dishes, organic decorations.  But there is one thing that will never be on that list - turkey.

So, if you feel the same way I do about this, please consider adopting a turkey.  Just click HERE to go to Adopt A Turkey Project.  Save a life, build some karma, and have a feast for which you (and a certain cute creature) are especially thankful for.  

Do you really need a tryptophan (or as Matt says, tryptoleen, haha) induced nap?  Or the added calories and bulk a turkey brings?  Didn't think so.  Instead of spending that money on a dead turkey, why don't you protect a live one?

Back Home

Matt and I just got back from a trip to the South. We have so many pictures to share, but first, here are some photos from Auburn.

Where we feel most at home - Toomer's Corner (corner of Magnolia and College) with our beloved ailing oaks.

Sarah and me outside of Jordan Hare.
