Max, you'll be happy to know that I already have ordered a new Hawaiian shirt (from Hawaii!) in preparation for the EET invasion of Dayton. I'll likely pick another locally (perhaps a bit less subdued) than the one on order.
I'm hoping I will be able to be there. I usually spend the weekend with my father. He's the one who influenced my decision to get into engineering. I hope I'll be able to go once again. I might even be able to make time for ya'll :)
We have some gormet chocolate places around here that put most anything else to shame. I've also dabbled in hand making chocolates. It's actually quite the interesting process. There's a lot more to it than just melting stuff.
That being said, I still like the basic generic Hershey's bar.
