Off to Jamaica


Our flight leaves at 5:30AM(!) for Montego Bay by way of Ft. Lauderdale. Leaving the apartment at 3 in the morning to get to the airport strikes me as a little insane... and makes me a little anxious about sleeping through an alarm (unreasonably so, since I'm not a deep sleeper)... but it does mean we should get to our hotel in time for a few hours on the beach, and regardless: we didn't have a choice. Here is a background post on our plans for the week.

Oh, as an aside, something to note about Spirit Air is that you have to pay for any checked luggage... I didn't realize that until I went to print out our flight information. $10 per bag if you do it online... $20 per bag if you do it at the airport(up to 2 bags - the third is $100), and I think the price is going up in June. I guess that's not ridiculous; it's even a good way for the savvy packer to save money... and the tickets were cheap... but it did come as a shock, and it would have been much worse if I didn't find out until we got to the airport.

But anyway, I won't be back and posting until next Wednesday May 28th... and I expect to see this Democratic nomination wrapped up, the party united, and the Republican Party's brutalized corpse lying at our feet. Get to work!
