I am finally back up and online after my trip.  Let me tell you, it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.  

The results have yet to be revealed.  Being impatient is probably not one of my strong points.


[I am very diligently separating my Mountain Trail Mix into three piles:  raisins, nuts, and M&Ms.]

[Enter nosy student worker]

Student Worker:  What are you doing?

Me:  Sorting my trail mix.

Student Worker:  Why?

Me:  I eat it in order of sweetness.  Nuts first, then raisins, then M&Ms

Student Worker:  Why is the pile of M&Ms so huge?

Me:  I eat them last… like… when the bag is empty of all nuts and raisins.

Student Worker:  So you basically want a bag of M&Ms.

Me:  Yeah.  Basically.

Student Worker:  They sell those at Wal-Mart, you know.  And I think I’ve even seen them already sorted by color for you.

Me:  How did you know I sort my M&Ms?

Student Worker:  Really?  You’ve only been sorting your trail mix for the past 30 minutes….
