On that note, we have reconsidered where to go for fifth semester. In a previous post, I said (to the surprise of several) that we were seriously considering staying in Dominica for the extra three months. Well, no more. It was somewhere in the air between Dominica and Toronto that Denise remembered what life in North America is like, and informed me that we wouldn't be staying in the Caribbean any longer than needed - before the plane landed. It took me until my first sip of a good beer to agree.

A second thing that I've reconsidered is the use of sleep masks. I had previously dismissed them as only for the elderly (no disrespect to the elderly who read this), and ridiculed a friend of mine, who had used one, on the plane to Toronto.
"I slept great this flight," he said. "What did you do?"
I grumbled and shuffled my feet.
Well, I tried it for the red eye back down here, and goodness it makes a difference. I was so much better rested than any other flight I'd taken. Heartily recommended.
|Strangely, there are very few pictures in a Google image search of sleep masks on men...|
*Disgusting facial hair update: It's all gone. Very sad. I rocked a mustache for a few days, but had to shave it for engagement photos. Don't worry though, I've already started getting ahead of the competition for Movember. Pictures will be forthcoming when I find a camera with high enough resolution to actually see my two-week-shadow.
