I am now a famous vegetarian

So Kitty and I are going to be famous among vegetarians!

Last year was our first veg Thanksgiving and we had gotten the Tofurky Feast (Tofurky is a very popular brand of veg "meat" products for those who don't know) It comes with a Tofurky roast, stuffing, gravy, dumplings etc. It was pretty good too.

On the box was something that said "Tell us your Vegetarian Thanksgiving Story" and asked for people to post stories and pictures to the Tofurky website.We took some pics and Kitty posted them and a little story for us and that was the last we thought of it.

So I get home from my parents house just now and read email msgs from Kitty saying in capital letters CALL ME NOW!! IMPORTANT! I got worried she was in danger and called her right away. Turns out she just got an email from Turtle Island Foods/Tofurky that said:

"Hi

We put you on the box for this year's feast--congrats--will send you some boxes and a care package--including a bowling shirt with your name embroidered. Please let me know what size you are (both of you).

Cheers
Heather Lindseth"

That's right kids. Kitty and I are going to be on the box for the Tofurky Feast this year. Here's the picture we sent them.



HAH! Look for me signing autographs on the boxes at Whole Foods in November!

The tofurky Turkey is actually pretty damn delicious, but this years box models are kinda tasty as well. I guess you knew that already.

The Tofurky Turkey is good, but the box models taste better than the Tofurkey

"but the box models taste better than the Tofurkey" -- I have no doubts about that. :)

Hey, can I add you? I saw your [mis]post in the veg community and see you're in Brooklyn. I'm moving to Park Slope from London in a couple weeks.

Absolutely. Where are you moving to and why? I love Park Slope. My girl sickrobot is a bartender at Lucky 13 on 5th Ave. I go there from time to time.

I'll be right off 5th Ave., near Grand Army Plaza.

I'm an editor at a financial magazine. Our HQ is in London, where I live now, but taking my work to New York for the next year.

Tell me more about Lucky 13 -- it looks great.

Your icon looks like one of the Menendez brothers lol

Lucky 13 is a metal and hardcore bar..small but comfortable. You go there, take money out of your wallet, hand it to Sickrobot, she throws horns and hands you a cold beer. Then you drink it and bang your head to awesome tunes and sick videos. Then repeat until drunk. It's pretty basic but fairly enjoyable.
