See the Strip off there in the distance? Above the glare?

I was going to take a picture of my Plane Socks on a slot machine, but they wouldn't stay. :(

The Plane Socks are not the Vinnland socks, which are sitting patiently waiting for me to engineer a way to bind them off that will still go over my ankles. The Plane Socks are thoughtless-knitting socks, which I'm promptly shipping back home for my aunt.

So good, in fact, that I felt inspired to start knitting.

Because Matt is in fact, very Dashing.

I'll take some pictures of the Hanford Reservation (where I work) as soon as one of the other students gets here so I don't have to be driving. :)
