I'm the worst pal ever!

So after all the bitching I did earlier because people can't say thank you- I'm weeks behind in getting out my pal's box for http://www.hogwartssockkitswap2.blogspot.com/. The order with the needles and the special prizes hasn't come in yet- and I'm anxious not to be a bad pal.

Back from Ireland. I was disappointed, the students weren't as fun as last year- my boss stayed the whole time. I don't know I guess it just wasn't foreign enough. I did buy a small amount of yarn and did very little knitting. I drank a lot of beer and did no dancing. What a waste of a trip. Otherwise it was a nice trip, the building were beautiful and the people were great. The business was very good.
