Parents, Mac, Disney, Virginia Tech

My parents came. . . .and technically they are here until tomorrow morning. We had a lot of fun going to Sea World, Epcot, out to dinner, saw what parade I work on, etc. We also got my class work done so I could turn it in today. I was really depressed when they first came because my mom broke down and told me the truth about the past week. My dog, MacKintosh Apple Computer aka "Mac" had eaten something toxic and was in the puppy icu for 3 days straight! At first they thought he wasn't going to make it, but by the end of their visit he was back to normal. I already miss him. Below are some pics from their visit. I spent half of Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday with them. They brought the motorhome down & stayed at Fort Wilderness. Some nights I went back & stayed in my apartment & some nights I spent there. We had a great time. Today we went to Epcot & ate at Morocco. I've actually been to the country, but it was only for a day. I didn't go very far into it tho, which sucks. We also visited & ate at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Pizzeria Uno and the Cheesecake Factory.
The pictures with my parents and I were taken on the Magic Kingdom train that goes all the way around the park. That day I took them to see which parade I work. They loved it! It made me feel better because most of the characters recognized me & winked or waved at me. It was a lot of fun. I also got to do some school work I had been putting off. Unfortunately this was on Monday the 16th.

As a college student, I would just like to say that no one deserves to go like the students and faculty at Virginia Tech. Every college student stood together for one day and we were all Hokies. My prays are with the victims and their families. May they find peace in time.

Let's get to some umm stuff. . .
My mom grew up in Japan, my grandpa was a colonol in Vietnam. She lived there 9 years, including high school. Sooo everytime we go to Epcot, we end up going to Japan. I bought some nifty socks today just for the hell of it. Green is my favourite colour, so that'll explain that.

I also started another new sock. . .shut up. . .this was the other day. This is actually an experiment because it's being knit with size 1 dpns. I usually use size 2, but thought I would try out my lantern moon size 1s I bought last week. The yarn is my Lorna Laces bee Stripe sock yarn. The only reason I have it is because it's Hawkeye colours, hell yeah!

My parents are also taking half my stuff back to Illinois/Iowa for me so it'll be easier in 3 weeks when my mom flies down & we drive back up. This should make it much easier to move out instead of dragging everything back with me. . . .this means my stash is on it's way back up to the Midwest without me & my cloest is close to empty. . .how sad. . . .

holy shnickies.

Ok Liz, obviously you don't have to use size 2 on larger strands. I thought I taught you better than that. Unless smaller strands magically appear in front of me, i'm gonna stick with size 3-4 for my socks, since that's me & I like it.
