Thanksgiving Recap

December 1, 2008

Hello again, everyone! I've officially returned from my Thanksgiving getaway, and holy crappers, it was so much fun.

Ladies and gentlemen, I absolutely cannot get over this picture of myself. Generally speaking I'm the most non-photogenic human being on the face of the planet. I can do my hair, spruce my makeup, lose twenty pounds, and look like an all around sex-kitten in the mirror--but then some dope will snap a candid, show it to me on that little camera screen, and I have to fight the urge to faint.

I'm like,"Dude! Why'd you take a picture of a chunky girl with bird poo smeared all over her cheek?!"

And the photographer's all, "Ummmm.....that's you."

But this shot, my friends, is the exception to the rule. I should consider posing next to the ass end of a dead bird more often--it seems to make me look cute by default:


Here I am at my ten year reunion, which I should add, was the most fun I've had in--let's see--ten years?!?! I love these people.


Despite the beer bottle in the foreground and the facial expression that clearly says I AM A DOG AND WILL PLAYFULLY RIP A HOLE IN THE BACK OF YOUR PANTS, I was stone cold sober:
I didn't get any one's permission to post their picture on my website, but hello?! when have I ever given two poops about boundaries and respect?
Starting from the left, we have the lovely Tali (Ivy-leaguer, two master's degrees, sexy, successful, and fun--as hard as I try, I just can't hate her...), me, Melissa (who told me the truth about Santa in first grade--can't hate her either...), Cindy, Mary-Kate (New York artist with the hottest set of hooters I've ever had the privilege of accidentally touching), and the ravishingly beautiful Nancy.
This is Jon. Jon with approximately twenty-two bottles of beer pumping through his veins. I've never seen him in this kind of a condition, and I'm honestly debating whether or not I should call his mother--she would be so disappointed.
Sometime around midnight, Jon offered to take me to a Red Sox game, free of charge, and buy me dinner in Boston--he even sealed the deal with a pinky swear. I love it when my most successful friends extend expensive, drunken promises--really ups my own standard of living, ya know?
When I told Jared, he was like, "You're going on a date with Jon? I'm not sure how I feel about that..." So I said, "Jon's wife will be probably free that night, maybe you can take her on a date?" It worked--now Jared's totally fine with it.
This is Troy. Back in sixth grade, when I was a complete ho, I kissed him on the bus on the way home from our field trip to the Bronx Zoo. I can't remember why I decided to do it--it was either a dare, or the fact that I couldn't resist his chiseled little 90-pound body--I really can't remember. Either way, the band teacher found out and threatened to call our parents.
As far as I know, Dr. Hopko hasn't contacted them yet--but every now and again, the thought of that call keeps me awake at night. My father would kill me. Still.
I hope everyone had a Thanksgiving that was half as good as mine!

I missed you SOOOO much over Thanksgiving and you looked beautiful with that bird! We'll have to do turkey day round two.

Lindsey said...

You look like a girl who is ready to live again. :)

Mindy said...

That picture of you by the turkey IS cute! I also love how it looks like your buns are about to be in the oven. I have a picture of me from 2 thanksgivings ago holding a pie that I like. What is it about posing next to thanksgiving food?

Holly said...

That picture is incredible: you look both hot and domestic! What more could you want?
Not that Amy herself needs to lose even an ounce, but in case any of her readers do, my bff and I are hosting a holiday weight loss contest on our blog. Come on over! What could amplify your holiday cheer more than deprivation and self-discipline?
Glad to hear you had fun at your reunion, Amy. Have fun on your date.

Viv said...

What a fun time at the reunion Amy!

By the way you look supah hot by that turkey. I will take one of each to go!

Heather of the EO said...

That IS a cute picture! Hot like a turkey.

The reunion: Are we the only two people on the planet that LOVE reunions? I do too. There's something so great about seeing people who've known you nearly your whole life and love you anyway.

Glad you had fun!

Michemily said...

That really is an amazingly good picture of you. I agree with Holly. Hot and domestic is where it's at. :)

Sarah said...

Love this post. You DO look fantabulous in the picture. And all I have to say about the reunion picture is "C'mon Amy, weren't you a little underdressed? Let see some skin! Where's YOUR animal print or prom like silky fabric get-up?" :)

Hilary said...

Sounds like you had a blast. I've never actually attended any reunions. Great photos all around. So, how come we don't like Cindy? ;)

Heather said...

I think you're ADORABLE in all the pictures. You had me with the Dallas-mooning pictures last year. :)

Amy said...

"Hot like a turkey"?

Ha ha ha.

(But yes, you are.)

Laura said...

I have Melissa's shirt and I love it :)
